I am planning to go to Thailand first two weeks of March. Is it best to be in southeast or southwest at that time? (because of the monsoon)
I am there with my girlfriend and want a very nice beach, bar and people when I want to and privacy when I want to. Another thing is: I want to dive and a budget housing directly at the beach.
Does anybody have advice?
Thanks a lot!

Both coasts are pretty good in March. If you're tossing up between Lanta and Phi Phi and want to dive, then Phi Phi is the better choice. Lanta has a larger range of budget rooms, but Phi Phi far better diving -- and, if you hunt around you'll get a reasonably priced room...
Hi there,I went to Lanta a month or so ago and loved it - stayed at the cheap and basic but lovely huts at the Sanctuary and couldn't fault it. Didn't see much else as the scooters available were not automatics and I was a bit chicken but what I did see of Ko Lanta was lovely. I went past PP on the ferry and I heard later that there isn't enough accommodation so people were having to sleep on the beach - worth booking ahead I think even if its only for the first night.
Have a great time.

Personally I prefer Phi Phi, but it does get pretty crowded and is more expensive. Koh Lanta is a lot more chilled out, you feel like you have more space and you get a bit more for your money. I was in Phi Phi/Lanta in March last year, Phi Phi was still very busy, but Lanta was quiet, therefore on the boat from Phi Phi to Lanta I had a lot of touts trying to sell me accomadation.

Phi Phi is better for diving. Many diving points to see.
Phi Phi will have more tourist than Lanta but on March ,it will not too busy.
