Hi, I'm heading to Thailand for a month in August/Sept (10/08 - 09/09), and was wondering if anyone could give me some help on a route to take?

Having read the weather report, we'll probably just spend our last week relaxing in Koh Samui and Koh PhaNgan. We also want to fit in the full moon party on the 4th of Sept. My main problem is deciding what we want to do up north and how long we should s ...

Which islands in 10 days?

Posted by robin84 on 28/4/2009 at 10:41

I'm spending 10 days in Thailand in late May with 4 friends (all in our mid 20s.) I backpacked around Thailand in '05, the only islands I went to then were Ko Phi Phi and Ko Pha Nga. This time as I only have 10 days I'd like to base myself on 2 or 3 islands. I fly into Phuket but really don't fancy spending much time there - not a big resort girl. Any suggestions on which islands would be best? Happy to travel a bit, but as time is limited don't want to spend days travelling from place ...
