Koh Samui or Krabi?

Which island is better in terms of beaches, resorts, water sports, island hopping, night life and scenery? Are both the same? Have been to Koh Samui and loved it but want to try a new island this time. Is Krabi worth it ? Where to stay Ao Nang or Nong Thale ?

Ho there

FIY krabi is not island. Krabi is province which have some very beautiful and well known islands the like of koh phi phi and koh Lanta. Samui is just a small island. Krabi have beautiful and better scenery than Samui.

We love both going there in 11days from now Krabi then Samui

Krabi we find better to do most tours, island hoping, elephant rides,and any thing else that you may fancy as it is a lot cheaper for night life not to bad amy69 bar is worth a look the little street its in seems to be the most lively and good music and cheap drinks however nothing like Chaweng where is on the go and is a lot more alive we love riding around the island and finding hidden beaches and restaurants either way we love both

We prefer the beach and restaurant choice in Samui but Krabi is better for sightseeing.
