will be arriving april 3rd and leaving april 24th and i would like to fit in as many places as possible.

im yet to visit ko samet so that is a must,although its a long way from the other andaman islands im hoping to visit,railay/ko lipe/ko kradan and maybe ko lanta/ko phi phi again because i enjoyed my 4 night on long beach(ko lanta)last april and because its a quietish island but with a bit of 'something else to do'and nightlife if i feel the need,i see it as a sort of 'all rounder/in between island' compared to the tranquility of the other islands,although am willing to try somehere new if needs be,and somebody can suggest something?? maybe 1 night in phuket to visit some old friends.was thinking about ko chang (andaman) ko phayam aswell but may give them a miss?

am, looking for somewhere with quiet beach during the day and possibly a bit of nightlife,good restaurants at nights etc...i found ko jum (ko pu) a little too laid back and the beaches were not great imo
(btw i understand i wont find any nightlife on ko kradan)but it looks to beautiful a place to pass up on..

i want to try and avoid the rains and i am thinking for this reason and my limited time giving ko phayam/ko chang a miss

please bear in mind i enjoy a few days on quiet beautiful peaceful paradise beaches ideal for swimming yet there are so many to choose from???? ive checked tezzas blog extensively and also travelfish.org but im still undecided

any help appreciated regarding islands/places to visit/resorts/accomodation to stay/avoid worth a mention? im willing to pay upto 1000/1500bt per night,fan room will be good enough just so long as i have hot water shower and a sink and mirror.

would preferably like beach hut/bungalow style accommodation with nice views a bonus.

am thinking of starting out spending my first 2 nights in bangkok,then fly to trang,boat to ko kradan,2-3 days here (depending on how much i enjoy it) staying at maybe either paradise lost or kalume village,then onto lanta,then possibly lipe(although have heard mixed reviews on lipe)-railay-phuket-bangkok-samet-bangkok-home.

i know that seems a very cluttered itinerary and people will most probably be thinking i will be spending most my time travelling,but im only really expecting to stay at each place 2-3 nights (except phuket,just 1 night here)and the 2nd time i menton bangkok is only for the 1 night also before i head to samet.

any help advice/info much appreciated.

thanks

ps has anybody stayed on ko kradan? im undecided on what accommodation to use,wally's (paradise lost) gets good reviews as does kalume,also what is sandsea resort like on railay?

I'm no English expert, but I found your post really difficult to read. I kind of got 'sea-sick'.
It might be something to do with no capital letters or all the forward slashes, I don't know.

You'll probably think I'm really rude.

my spelling,punctuatiuion and grammer may not be 100% perfect but my post is not that difficullt to read.

i have hardly included any capital letters?

and the forward slashes are there when i mention 2or3 places in close proximity that i hope to visit in order,or i mention something that has very similar meanings

eg help/advice/info

could you please read again and point out which parts you find difficult to read/understand?

and hopefully i can calarify them for you?

any help/imput would be most appreciated,thanks

No problems. It was an impression I got and wondered if it had anything to do with you not getting the replies you hoped for. I was probably tired and cross-eyed at the time and shouldn't have even mentioned it. ;)
