    My husband and I are going to backpack SE Asia, India, & Europe over the next year, so we're clearly on a budget, but would like to spend a few days, maybe on Koh Samet or Koh Chang, honeymooning in a nice, but budget concious resort.
    We'd like to spend our few days in a nicer guesthouse then we plan to be in throughout the remainder of the year, but we have to really keep in mind how much we spend.
    Any suggestions?

    On Ko Chang, somewhere that springs to mind is Baan Rim Nam. You can also read more about it on their website

    Having just visited Koh Chang I don't believe it offers much in the way of budget accommodation. The available cheapo rooms (250 Baht) I would not stay in but found nice clean bungalows for 500 a night after beating him down from 650 (it is the low season now). I don't think you can bater much in the 'high season'.

    Think about Kanachanaburi (River kwai) very nice, We are stay on the river side for 200 a night and floating air con bungalows are availabe at 300-400.
