When are you planning the trip? it's important to know because of the different weather patterns on each coast.

Hi

Sleazy bars and drinker yobos are every where even in Australia!!!

In seriousness you can find great places to stay on a very great beach in both Phuket and Samui. In the month from June - October is not so good weather in west coast ( Phuket ), October - December not good in east coast ( koh Samui ).

Cheers,

LOL Pea . . . also in the UK!!

To be honest, being a hetrosexual married 50+ female, I love the sleezy bars, as the bar girls are just the best fun to have a laugh with! Folks are so dismissive of them! The bars tend not to get too sleezy until well after midnight anyway!!

Agree with Pea which location depending on the time of year!

Thanks for asking!

That sounds like koh Samui, I'm going there end of this month. Everyone I've talked with said nothing but good stuff about koh Samui.

So, in mid august Samui is the best choice, gives you more chances of good weather. Phuket is in the middle of monsoon season.

Enjoy

You're welcome !!

As matti says August is dry season in Samui, in Phuket you will be in the middle of rainy season.
