Anyone had been in Koh Kho Khao which near Khao lak, Phangnga. Please gives me some comments about the quality of beach, sea-water. There is only a few resorts and looks good. Which one is worth for money? They are all quite expensive.
I'll go on November, looking for some islands with some snorkelling sites, good weather, nice beach, clear water and not so expensive resort( A/C, fridge, TV, hot-water are needs, around 2000 bahts per night ).
Thank you very much.

Welcome to Travelfish!
We've got a reasearcher in Phang Nga at the moment -- I'll post back on this thread when we've received his notes.
november? monsoon is not over! best bet is the northeast, it stops raining from there. try koh kood,koh mak,koh wai-even koh chang, if you don`t mind the more dearing resorts and facilities. could be nice, cause the crowd arrives later. 2000 baht per night: you can get what you want !

I was in the area in November 2005 and the weather was pretty good. Often it would be hot for most of the day, the cloud over about 3-4pm, rain for an hour or so and then clear up for the evening. There were plenty of other days where it was fine all day. It's certainly a lot better than over in the Gulf islands like Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Samui at that time of year.
Most of the resorts (and the best beach) are on the west coast of the island. It's a great swimming beach with plenty of waves, good drop off. If you want to go snorkelling, some of the local weekend fishermen can organise longtail boat trips to snorkelling and fishing sites around the island.
