Going to Thailand next month for the first time and was wondering which destinations in southern Thailand I should drop. The following destinations are on my whishlist, but maybe some destinations look alike, offer the same experience or arent't worthwhile for a first time Thailand visiter? I have to lose at least 3 or 4 destinations.
Ko Lipe (Tarutao National Park)
Ko Bulon Leh
Ko Phi Phi
Phang Nga Bay
Khao Sok NP

what are your interests? diving? partying? nature? standard of accommodation? etc - a bit more info on what you are looking for and it will be a bit easier to cull a few.
Was already thinking about dumping Samui and instead go to Phangan and/or Tao.
When it cames to my interest it's a little bit of both. One time just beautifull nature, sea canoeing, and a place where I can drink something in peace. But I don't like a completely abandoned island, because then I will get bored.
The other time an island with a bit of a crowd and nightlife, but definitly not like the full-moon type in Haad Rin.
I won't be diving, but will probably do some snorkeling.
I will first be going to Northern Thailand and Cambodia. Will be at the first Thai island around the beginning of March. I know the islands are more expensive then the rest of Thailand, but I don't want to spend more then 1000/1200bath a day for a room for me and my girlfriend.
Phi Phi is the only place in the list I don't want to drop, because my girlfriend definitly wants to go there.
Any idea which islands suits bests?
