advice/recommendations for young adults on southern islands

Posted by chambers on 3/6/2008 at 02:20

Hi there. me and my best mate are going to southern thailand for 3 weeks and we were after some advice as to where we should go/stay.

( we don't ask for much do we :D ? ) We are going from late july to mid august so we wondered which side of the coast would be better to stay on this time o ...

Krabi or Phi Phi?

Posted by Halilee on 19/5/2008 at 04:03

So, doing lots of research and am having difficulty in chosing the beach part of our vacation. I was finally decided upon Phi Phi staying on Long Beach, but it sounds like the accomodations on that beach aren't the greatest ( going by traveller reviews). We were also considering staying at Railay West in Krabi. We want nice swimmable water with a great beach. Snorkelling off the beach is a big bonus, but not totally necessary if it's nearby. Good accomodations, good restaurant choices, some shop ...
