Ideas where to go after Phuket please

Hi We are going to Bangkok then Phuket for 6 days and would like advice on where to go for the next 6 days before returning to Bangkok. Would prefer not too much travel time, looking for mixture of sightseeing and relaxing by beach. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

You will not have much trouble filling 6 days. Phuket is a big island, so lots to explore and plenty of activities.

Khao Lak...!!...About 1-1/2 hours drive north of Phuket.....

Beautiful beaches,wonderful food,no jetski scammers,no pesky tailors,hassle free shopping,no tuk tuks.....

You could always head north to Chiang Mai. Air Asia has direct flights from Phuket then you can fly from there to Bangkok. We are off to Chiang Mai next year after spending a few days in Phuket and Khao Lak

If you aren't doing a day trip to Phi Phi,

You could catch a ferry there, stay a night or two, then ferry to Krabi for the rest of your remaining nights,

Krabi has an airport you can fly out from there.

Or you could drive to Khao Lak, stay a night or two, then drive onto Krabi.

Krabi is a nice contrast to Phuket.

I'd spend the rest of the time in Krabi and fly back to BKK form there.

We prefer Krabi to Khao Lak.

For a change from a beach scenery I would also go with the Chiang Mai suggestion.
