This will be my first trip to Thailand, which I am rather excited about.
For the first leg of the trip I will be with a friend of mine. We are intending to do Phuket and then Phi- Phi for two nights and then we depart ways. She will be returning home on christmas eve via Phuket and I have to deceide whether I should return to Phuket for three nights on my own or rather do Ko Lanta for 3 nights before flying to Ko Samui to meet another friend (via Krabi).
The thing is I am a female travelling on my own and I would like to visit Ko Lanta over the 24, 25 and 26 December (christmas period) but not sure where to stay and whether it would be a good option travelling on my own. I am looking for 3 days of relaxing with a bit of a socialising (nothing too crazy) and wanted to know whether Ko Lanta would be a good idea as opposed to Phuket and if so where would you suggest I stay.
Also if I do stay in Ko Lanta, how long would it take to get to Krabi airport and what would be the best way to get there.
Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated :)
