We are soon off to Thailamd for the first time (excited!) and we cant decide if we want to go to for our first week to Phuket plus Phi Phi or Samui plus Phanang. we dont have time for both.

Which would be the better choise weather wise?

    It depends on your travel style and budget. I would go for Samui and Pha Ngan, since they are still less crowded and a bit cheaper. over 9 years ago

    Hey Mat
    From Phuket you can get the ferry to Phi Phi and then back again to Phuket. http://www.phiphicruisers.com/
    If you want to go to Samui by air you can go with with Thai Airways directly from Phuket, or get the bus from Phuket to Ban Don pier in Surat Thani and the ferry to Samui . The ferry services are very good and reliable. Samui has much more to do than Phi Phi. I get my Thai hotels from this site www.ihotelthai.com you check them out if you need a hotel deal. over 9 years ago

    Koh Samui is incredibly commerical, in some areas, but there are still plenty of places where you can get away from the crowds, if thats what you want to do.

    I love Koh Phangang and can only rate it very highly. I loved Tong Nai Pan Noi although I understand that it is going through some "gentrification" at the moment. Friends just got back from staying in Ra Sa Nan Da and said it was amazing, but not cheap! over 9 years ago

    Beware of the weather, both areas prone to heavy storms in September and ferrys frequently get cancelled in both locations. Having said that, Samui/Pha Ngan would be my personal choice, more laid back, less expensive over 9 years ago
