Looking for a QUIET Thai island for August holiday
23rd March, 2013
I am looking for a quiet Thai island with lovely beaches with bungalows rather than developed resorts. I want to travel with my husband and spend maybe 4-5 days somewhere but am aware that in August there may be a lot of rain. Can anyone recommend somewhere or tell me if I am better looking for somewhere in the Thai Gulf, Southern Thailand or West? Many Thanks

You are probably best off going to an island in the Gulf at that time of year. Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Koh Pha-Ngan are the 3 main islands in the southern Gulf, with Koh Tao being the one probably best suited to your needs since you prefer less development. That being said, all 3 are quite developed and have a wide range of accommodation, from budget bungalows to luxury resorts. Koh Pha-Ngan is where the Full Moon Party happens, so it caters more to a young backpacker party crowd, while Koh Samui is highly developed with lots of big resorts and a golf course etc.

Tao is rather developed and not quiet unless you pick a real remote beach. It's more of an island for divers. Ko Samet is close to Bangkok and doesn't get much rain.

The northeast coast of Koh Phangan is quiet and does not attract full moon party goers. Look at Bottle Beach, Thong Nai Pan and Than Sadet.
