    hello,

    sorry, i hit return to fast and sent this message off empty..
    no i did not discover a secret little natural wonderland, where the best of thailand´s beautiful beaches can be found in one not-too-hard-to-reach spots, which is not crowded but where a cocktail,food and accomodation is easily accessible without spending lots of money in a huge resort, where snorkeling, swimming and living the good life is possible without sharing it whith hundreds of tourists is possible.. and all that within lets say 1 daydtrip from bangkok, with perfect weather conditions in mid-november.
    too much to ask? probably not but so much to choose from, that´s why i would love to hear your ideas.
    thank you alot, monika

    excellent tip from mattocmd with heaps of good info on which island is best for you. particularly take a look at ko maak on the east coast and see what you think. regards.

    I loved Ko Wai (off of Koh Chang). It's my private little paradise, but that was 4 years ago... :(

    Otherwise I like Koh Tarutao and Koh Adang (nowhere near Bangkok though, sorry!).

    Ao Putsa/Pudsa/Tubtim on Ko Samet ticks all those boxes but one - snorkelling aint great.

    the snorkelling on Ko Wai is quite good and right off the beach.
