    Hi,

    We have about 5-6 days to spend on a sun kissed beach in western thailand (this much is decided from weather charts and our pre-booked flights to Phuket!) and would like some advice on where to go? We thought Phi Phi but are now in some thought?

    Any advice welcome? Activities wanted are some diving and some relaxed beach action - oh, and a travellers budget?!?!

    Thanks in advance
    D&K

    Ko Phi Phi is the obvious choice, but if you're after something quieter, Ko Lanta is a very good option. Closer to Phuket, both Ko Yao Noi and Ko Yao Yai are great, but the beaches not as good as Lanta.

    Phi Phi certainly has the beaches and landscape/seascape. One of it's two problems, crowding, won't be too bad so early in the season, although there should still be a fair amt of people there. Long Beach is the one to head for for a nice beach within reasonable access of town, or one of the east coast beaches if this is not important and you want laid back.
    The other problem is that Phi Phi tends to be more expensive for accommodation than most other islands - you pay for popularity.

    Besides those mentioned by Somtam, Ko Jum is another nice island within the region. The Trang islands of Kradan and Ngai are perhaps even better for people after nice beaches and good snorkelling off the beach.

    Of all the islands mentioned, Phi Phi has the best sites and facilities for divers.
