    Posted from within Vietnam.

    Hello all!

    I am in Vietnam and about to fly back to Thailand to finish off my SE Asia trip on the beach before returning to cold Europe....

    I am torn between flying to Krabi and kayaking, then going to chill out in Lanta and doing some snorkelling (don't dive), OR flying to Koh Samui, maybe stay a couple of days then go to Koh Phangan...

    Any tips from someone who's been to both places?

    Am I taking a risk by going to the East Coast in January, weather-wise?

    Please also bear in mind I am a lone female traveller, I like the quite but a bit of socialising would be nice (anyone reading heading out there?), and also that I was in Koh Lipe in December - v. near Lanta....

    Thanks for any advice!

    Jan is ok east coast weather wise. late octg to to dec is the worst.

    Samui and Krabi are the best from those 4.

    If you have 8 nights do 4 in both, otherwise just pick one.
