Trang islands advice?

Posted by Sampan on 7/11/2009 at 17:21

Happy trails everyone!

I'm currently on Ko Jum (having a absolutely wonderful time..:), and was thinking of going south towards Trang town by the end of next week, and from there further to any of the Trang islands for a few days.

Does anyone have any suggestions which island to go to for descent "backpacker budget" accommodation were there's also good snorkeling?

Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Kradan has the best snorkelling of the more easily accessed islands with budget accommodation. Paradise Lost was the only decent budget place but there are two newish ones Kradan Island Resort and Kalume' Kradan Village.
Some recent reports indicate Ko Kradan Beach Resort has lifted its game.

Arguably Ko Laoliang has equal snorkelling but the high quality tent accommodation is above some budgets although taking food and other inclusions it aint a bad deal.

Ko Ngai has reasonably good snorkelling by Thai standards - the two budget options are Ko Hai Villa and Paradise Beach Resort. Ko Hai Seafood may still have their basic budget tents.

Ko Muk hasn't got particularly good snorkelling. Ditto Libong and Sukorn.
