    Hi there! My fiancee and I are planning our honeymoon to Thailand from 20th Jan to the 12th of Feb and are trying to figure out where to go that will be quiet and secluded without stacks of tourists. Can anyone reccommend? Should we go to the Adang islands, near Phuket or to the ones like Ko Samui? We hear that Ko Samui is packed with tourists but that if you travel out of the hub it's good and quiet and you wouldn't know you were there, where are those areas and beaches? We are not wanting to spend heaps, but at the same time we want it to be nice, afterall it is our honeymoon!

    Well it doesn't get much quieter than Adang, a real nice National Park island abt 2km north of Ko Lipe. It's not really all that close to Phuket - you would be better flying to Trang or Hat Yai and moving to the ferry at Pak Bara there.
    I spent some time a fortnight back on Adang - the best rooms the National Park has are 600baht bungalows - abt $us20 - in the case of Adang near new tiled floor concrete wall jobs with cathedral ceilings, dormer windows and skylights and sliding aluminium doors. But fan only and no hot water.
    Adamg has a lovely L shaped 800m beach which had a max of a half dozen people on it when I was there, and a nice restaurant with food prices about the same as most budget bungalow restaurants. Short not too steep walk to a cenic lookout, longer walk to a rainforest waterfall, the last 300m of which is a bit of a rock-hop up the river.

    If you are looking for more comfort, a real nice relaxed and scenic island with a good beach is Ko Ngai which has a handful of midrange and higher resorts.

    Ko chang and Ko kood would be good choices

    they are big islands so you can explore if you get bored laying around

    they have cheap, mid range and expensive resorts

    Bang Saphan/Bang Krut would be pretty quite and a great part of Thailand to check out.
