Koh Lak, Ko Lanta, or Koh Krdan? Please Help

We have 5 days to spend on the beach. We are torn between these Koh Lak, Ko Lanta, or Koh Krdan. We dont want crazy busy crowds and would like to get out and explore and find more secluded beaches and maybe take some private day tours. We also would like to do some snorkeling/diving(maybe). We really want to explore Phang Nga Bay but Koh Yao Noi may be too remote to stay at. Could we do day trips easily from Koh Lak to there? Koh Lanta is too far from there right? You go the other way from there down to koh muk and all of those? Is Koh Kradan woth it? Could we spend maybe 3 days on Lanta and 2 on Koh Lak and see everything we want to see? We will be flying out of phuket to Chaing Mai so we have to go that way at some point anyway but do not want to stay in phuket. Please help as we are trying to book rooms and are very confused. This will be in November... 1 month from now so we gotta act fast. Thanks so much for your help!

For such a short time I would say Khao Lak as it has easy access from Phuket Airport. You can do day trips to Phang Nga Bay and great snorkelling trips from Khao Lak.

The other two places you mention are harder to get to and involve ferry rides and certainly not worth splitting such a short time between Koh Lanta and Koh Kradan.

Koh kradan is worth visiting!

Well, If you stay in Lanta you can do tour 4 islands from there go to Koh Ngai,Koh Muk, Koh Kradan and Koh Chuak for best snorkeling.

From Khao Lak we likely buy day trips to Surin island or Similan Islands for diving and snorkeling and I would suggest you to visit Koh Tachai there is really nice to see. anyways for 3 islands that I had mentioned it you will have to travel on their season in November - April only.
