i was in koh samet and koh samui and i absolutley loved samet. it was quiet, relaxed, and beautiful. there are really no paved roads and when our ferry arrived we were transferred onto a smaller boat and then dropped about 30 feet from shore and had to wade in (no dock). it's a quick (2-3 hours if i remember correctly) bus ride from bangkok to the town where the ferry to samet departs (i'm blanking on the name right now). the town itself is nothing great, i'd recommend getting there early so you don't have to stay the night in one of the few relatively grungy hotels. keep in mind that there's not much to do in samet other than relax, swim, read and walk the beaches (which is why i loved it!). i stayed in a little place called jep's and thought the staff was fabulous and kind.

I vote for Koh Lanta. Beautiful and far fewer visitors than Phi Phi. Click here for some photos.
