mY borfriend and I are flying into Bankok for 19th Dec of this year and then flying out of Kuala Lumpar on the 11 Jan 2011. Can anyone help with a route that encompasses some good parties for New Year. We had thought Full moon party for Christmas day but are stuck for new year,,, also does anyone know how to get from Ko samui to Phuket???
Also anyone recomend any Malaysia destinations?? Borneo???
Thanks for all your help
It is a long day, but many make the journey from Samui over to Phuket. The travel shops on Samui will book a ferry-bus or ferry-minivan combo for you. I would take the bus. More room and safer. You want as much metal around you as possible on the Thai highways.
I suggest you stop in Krabi first. There are so many beach options close to Krabi town that it is worth a few days IMO. Certainly Railay Beach is worth day tripping. Just idyllic. You might hit Koh Jum as well. Then take the ferry over to Phi Phi for 1-2 days. Then ferry to Phuket. After Railay & Phi Phi, I think you will find Phuket crowded and expensive.
Good luck with your planning.
If you're an animal lover then definitely Borneo - Sabah is the place to head with some interesting accommodation in the jungle!
Check this out sabahtourism.com and look for the Orang-utan sanctuary plus the Tortoise Island and if you want a tropical paradise remote island then head to Lankayan Island for diving
