I am travelling with my daughters (15 and 24) for our first trip to Thailand. We have had a nightmare time with our travel agent, which has made me question everything he said. I asked for a quietish resort but still with things to do and he suggested Krabi. He seemed so knowledgeable that I trusted his opinion. But now I'm not so sure. The manager is now dealing with the trip and we still need to book the hotel for the last stage, reading reviews I'm not sure Krabi is the best place for August (13th - 19th). Whilst I agree that it seems to be beautiful and quieter than other more tourist resorts the weather is against it.
Can anyone help? We would like boat trips, good food, beautiful beaches, away from heavily commercialised or touristy areas. Staying in Krabi we had chosen the Centara Grand but have not had time to look into anything in Samui.
