    Greetings, iam currently at kata beach phuket and am looking to move on in a day or two. Have spent a couple months travelling through Thailand and Laos and am on the last leg of the trip. I have just over 2 weeks left. Can someone suggest the next couple of places to go?? Ideally next place to be more budget backpacker style as I have splurged a bit here in kata. Not really looking for a party scene but more laid back secluded vibes. Cheap beach bungalows would be ideal. Thanks in advance and I love Travelfish!!!

    So many places within easy access of Phuket .
    Fancy the best snorkelling in Thailand and neat National Park tents or bungalows? - get up to Khao Lak and out the the Similans.
    Fantastic scenery, crowds and party - nearby Phi Phi.
    Fantastic scenery and crowds - Railay (Krabi). Some climbing - adjacent Ton Sai.
    Great all round island with laid back beaches, party beaches - Ko Lanta.
    Laid back - Ko Jum, Ko Yao Noi.
    Super laid back and closest to Phuket - Ko Yao Yai.

    Now all those are within a few hours. If you want to go further ......

    Awesome thanks for your help. Was definitely goingto do railay and will now most certainly do khao lak. Any thoughts on which to do first? Are the bungalows in the national park close to the beach?? Any idea how much they cost? Thanks again

    was thinking of railay myself but may add khao lak to the menu or even ko ngai.

    also as tezza mentions.ko lanta is a cool island quite big,uqite laid back,decent longbeaches (plenty of roomto yourself) good and fair priced accommodation and a few things to do if you get bored.
