Koh samoi vs Koh Tao vs Koh Phi-Phi

Hi Friends,

We are planning a trip of thailand in january for 10 days. In these 10 days we want to cover main attractions of thailand. We are not looking for night life there. As per our plan we are covering Koh Phi-Phi not Koh Samoi and Koh Tao... But after watching beautiful pics of Koh Tao, we are confused... Need your suggestions....

If this is your first visit to Thailand, I would suggest you to visit Krabi (Ao Nang) , Phuket and Bangkok.

You will get to see a lot of cultural, heritage sites along with with many modern marvels besides beaches.

Koh Tao is the opposite side of country from Koh Phi Phi and will still be in its rainy season in January.

You are better sticking to Koh Phi Phi and Andaman coast in January. Look at Koh Lanta and Koh Lak.

I would stick with the Ao Nang / Krabi / Phi Phi / Phuket areas, especially as you only have 10 days. You can easily lose a day travelling between places..

As the others say, in January the weather is still hit and miss at Samui / Tao, and more importantly the sea conditions can be not so great. You are likely to see less rain and calmer seas in the Ao Nang / Krabi / Phi Phi / Phuket area around the Andaman Sea / Phang Nga bay area.

Thanks for your reply.... We have planned our trip. We will first land in Bangkok. After spending 2 days, we will leave for khao sok national park. There we will spend the next two days. Then, we will leave for phuket. In phuket, we will stay for 4 days. From there we will have a day trip to phi-phi island on any of the day. The last two days of our trip, we spend in Bangkok. Out of which one day, we will have a day trip of Pattaya from Bangkok. Please provide your valuable suggestions. Thanks in Advance. Actually I forgot my password. So, usng another screen name.
