Hello, i'll be spending 3 nights in Phi Phi for New Year meeting up with some friends then i will be moving onto Koh Lanta for 7 nights.
I'll be on my own (33 single guy) i'm looking for the best beach to stay on. Good accomodation, up to 2500 baht a night and some decent nightlife, nothing seedy, just some busy bars.
Will i be best to book my accomodation if arriving on or around the 3/4 th January ? Will places get booked up ?
Thanks for any replies.
Chris, Klong Dao is the most populated beach on Lanta. Long beach the next one south I believe is a better beach,especially the northern end. There's lots of casurina trees for shade etc. At that time of year you might be better to book if you decide on a specific place. I stayed at Sayang Beach resort last march which is about in your price range, Had a great a/c bungalow right on the beach.Family run operation with fantastic food.Night time it's easy enough to get a songthaew to Klong Dao where there are plenty of beach bars,with cushions on the sand great music very relaxing.We really enjoyed our week there.Any questions ask away
Thanks for the replies, i'm just going through some reviews on places to stay.
Will there be other single travellers around or is this more a couples and family place ?
I'm not sad and and lonely, honest !! This is my first stop on my way to Japan to go snowboarding for the season, i just need some beach time before i hit the mountains.
Thanks again, any more info is greatly appreciated.
lots of single? no, tezza is talking nonsense.
When I stayed on Lanta (twice) ghere were hardly any singles. It's a couples island with little nightlife and little to do. 7 nights you would be bored outta your mind.
I went there single and was bored after 2n. I went there with my wife and lasted 4n.

Which resort/island would you recommend for me ? Would i be best staying on Phi Phi or Railay Beach ?
Is Koh Samet worth a visit ?
Any resorts on Phuket worth a visit ? Apart from Patong, i wasn't a fan, although my last visit was 8yrs ago.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
Samet is ok but not really for singles either.
Depends what you want to do.
If you want to hang out with other backpackers and drink then Haad Rin on Koh Phan Ngan is the place to go. I hated the place but some like it and plenty of people to drink with.
Samui is another option to meet people.
Phi Phi and Railay are busy places where you could meet people and drink. The party scene is a bit of a wank I thought but some people like it.
The quieter islands are good for couples or if you want to lay around and relax.
Koh Chang is another option. Fairly low key nightlife but enough to keep you interested and it's a lot better than Lanta IMO. It's a long way from the south though.
