Hi,

In about a month and a half I will be traveling to Thailand with a friend. For the last few days we really want to go to a remote island with as little tourism as possible, pretty beaches (preferably white beaches), good for snorkeling and as much wildlife as possible (birds etc)
We're on a budget and don't want to spend more than 500 baht for a bungalow.
We've discussed going to Ko Phayam or Ko Pu/Jum but we can't decide.
If you know any other remote island that's fine too, as long as the resorts aren't too expensive.

We would really appreciate it if you could help us out!

I've recently been researching the quieter islands to put on my 'to do' list. I looked over my notes but I haven't noted 'white beaches' or birdlife though I do recall reading about birdlife on one of them (sorry, did not note as not really interested).

I guess you have to choose between Koh Phayam (Ao Yai beach), Koh Jum, Koh Sukorn, Koh Tarutao, Koh Libong or Koh Kradan.
