So I'm going to be in Thailand for 6 weeks starting Monday Jan 14, most of that time spent in and around Chiang Mai. My last week or so I would like to find a nice beach to relax before I return to BKK and head back to the states.
I'm more of a backpacker than a luxury traveller, so staying on a budget is important. But I'd also like to be somewhere with like minded travellers who are down with having fun in the sun and the occasional moonlight party.

altmtl, thanks for the reply. I was kind of afraid of that.
Any suggestions on where to possibly make a side trip beach jaunt to hang out for a few days, and still make it back to Bangkok?

I'll second somtam's suggestion for Ko Samet as a good beach getaway close to Bangkok. It really fills up on weekends and holidays, however, so best if you can go mid week to avoid the crowds and higher prices. Cheers.
t absolutely fills up on weekends and holidays, however, so best if you can go mid anniversary to abstain the crowds and college prices.
