Im hoping to spend two weeks maybe three (budget depending)on the beautiful thai islands. I'm leaning towards a week on ko phag nan, and a week at ko phi phi. Not interested in an overdeveloped beach. but would still like to visit one with a bit of a scene, paradise is nice but i still want to share it with a few others? would these two islands fit the bill? and is a week each too long, would i be better off trying to see more?
I was on ko phag nan, a couple of weeks ago. A week would certainly not be too long. I stayed for 12 days. I think a person could stay there for months. And i met a guy there, who was doing exactly that. One tends to get in a relaxed, no hurry frame of mind there.
Even though there was no tourist tat(night clubs and strip bars), on the beaches i went to, there were still lots of other travellers to meet. And there were plenty of beach cafes, and internet places, so not so remote, that one has no modern comforts.
thanks mel, it sounds and looks like paradise! im there
