We will be in Koh Samui in September 2013, and thinking of staying on Koh Tao for a couple of nights. Have just been to Gili Trawangan (off Lombok, Indonesia) and just loved it. Does Koh Tao compare with Gili T? We are looking for a nice place to stay on the beach (up to $100 P/N) and want to have access to some local restaurants & shops and a lovely beach to relax on. We have stayed on Chaweng beach and loved it, but thinking of breaking up our stay with a new place. It is just my husband & I.
Would love any ideas and recommendations,
