Andaman gulf beginning of December
28th April, 2009
I'm planning on going to the Andaman Gulf (Khao Sak, Similan Islands, Koh Phi Phi, Krabi, Railey) at the beginning of December. My questions:
will these be overcrowded that time of the year, or is it only really bad from mid-Dember on? Is it much different from let's say end of October? And is it affordable (I'm a backpacker)?
How many days will I need to do the above (I scheduled around 10 days)

I reckon beginning of Dec in the Andaman is a pretty good time to travel. I'll be there again this year!
It'll be a fair bit busier than the end of October which is dead set low season - but most places will be relaxed.
Exceptions - Phi Phi is normally popular at this time, as is Railay. Maybe a bit quieter this year because of the tourism slump.
You could do all your places in 5 days, but travelling between most locations will burn time - if you could allocate a day or two more that would not hurt.
