Krabi, Phuket or Koh Samui

Hi guys

My wife and i (late 20's) are paying a trip to Thailand. We're going to be spending a nice chunk of time on Phi Phi Island but are wondering what to do after that?

We're thinking of going to Phuket, Krabi or Koh Samui but are not sure where to go.

We want to go somewhere fairly lively but that has got nice beaches and good nightlife.

can you help at all?

Thanks!

If you're already spending time on Phi Phi, for lively nightlife , you might want to just stay on the west coast and go to Phuket. Krabi has my heart, however it is more laid back than Phuket or Koh Samui. Samui is way over on the east coast so will require quite a bit more travel time, whereas going to Phuket or even to Krabi from Phi Phi is a 1 1/2 hr ferry ride only.

I'd also suggest Phuket for its close proximity. If you want nice beaches stay in either Kata Beach or Karon Beach which are just a 15 minute tuk tuk ride to Patong Beach where all the action is. Do all your shopping in Patong which is way cheaper than Phi Phi. There are also plenty of nice restaurants in Karon & Kata but way more nitelife in Patong Beach.

Have a great trip.
