Some friends of mine are coming to Thailand to meet me in the first week of October. We were thinking of staying on one of these two islands and were tending towards Ko Chang but are still unsure. Has anyone stayed on either of these islands? We're looking for somewhere cheap, relaxed with beautiful beaches and not tooooo touristy. My friends aren't staying too long so want to be able to stay in a spot once they arrive so the more info I have the better:)

Thanks as awlays guys, so many helpful people!!

Hi, There

I recommended Ko Tao . Ko Tao located in Surat Thani.45-km to the north of Ko Pha-ngan. Here nature is unspoiled and local people live harmoniously with it A very ideal place for snorkelling and diving.

Have a nice trip

Koh Samet is close to BKK and Pattaya. So it is more touristy than Koh Chang. Koh Tao is also more popular than Koh Chang.
