    We have been to Hua Hin several times and really like it for many reasons - reasonable prices, compact, lots of restaurants and even a couple of Irish pubs, nice beaches with cafes with lots of shade right on the beach, shops to wander around and a few places to visit.
    BUT - we would now like a change and would like to stay somewhere else for a couple of weeks after 2 weeks intensive sight-seeing (in Burma this time).
    Can anyone suggest any good alternatives in Thailand with similar facilities which we could visit?
    Thanks

    "lots of restaurants and even a couple of Irish pubs, nice beaches with cafes with lots of shade right on the beach, shops to wander around and a few places to visit"

    Sounds like Ao Nang or Phi Phi

    Depends on what time of year you are visiting. The Andaman is just going into wet season until some time in November and although that is normally not too bad with enough sunshine to give a decent holiday the southern Gulf side tends to be drier. On that side places which fit the bill include Chaweng and Lamai on Samui.
    Bob's suggestions re the Andaman are good. You will also get your asks on Phuket - I'd be thinking Kata of the big 3 which isn't over the top.
    Khao Lak is another possibility.

    Thanks Tezza and Cptn Bob.
    We will be visiting Burma end Jan / beginning of Feb 2014 and then come back to a beach in Thailand for 2 - 3 weeks in February.
    Best, Art

    Hard to get good prices on hotels in Jan/Feb as that's high season but there's lots of choices. Samui has all the things you want. Otherwise Krabi or Koh Chang if you want less tourists. Read the places section on this site.
