My husband and I are in our forties, we are looking to go to Thailand in Feb 2012 but are having real trouble deciding where to stay as this will be our first time and there are just so many varied resorts.
Our budget is not fixed but imagined staying in a 4 star hotel on a B&B basis.
Looked at Patong and it seems a bit 'full on' for us; ideally would like a smart resort with a good beach that doesn't get too packed, a good selection of restaurants and bars, maybe not too far away from other resorts by tuk tuk.
Karon seems the obvious choice at the moment but would like to consider other options; maybe Koh Samui, can anyone tell me what the town area is like there?
We,ve been to North Goa and loved it and thought Thailand might be similiar. Are their places to eat on the beach like Goa?
We have just come back from the Maldives which was so peaceful but wanted something a little livlier in february. Just can't decide, please help!
