Tarutao Marine Park island beaches vs Koh Lipe  (1 Answer)

Having been to Koh Lipe a couple of times before it was transformed I now hesitate in returning.

I'm in the area (south of langkawi) and it's still (daily) raining season, but I'm wondering about which islands to the North of Koh Lipeh may be alternatives.

Have you been to Koh Kradan and is it affordable and are the waters as clear as Koh Lipe's? Koh Muk?
I've passed by those islands on my way from Lipeh to Krabi and seen extremely small islands where I question its safety (in case of another tsunami).

Please suggest, and elaborate on some island from your personal experience.

Weather on islands from mid October  (2 Answers)


Me and my boyfriend are travelling to Thailand on the 24th Oct ( less than two weeks). We are spending 2 days in Bangkok then travelling to Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phanghan.

We are there till the 9th Nov.

I understand it is wet season and so am expecting showers and short downpours, but know I have just read thunderstorms and everything.
Will it still be decent weather between these though and will it still be 'holiday' weather?

Appreciate honest answers so we know what we're in for :(

Krabi and Ko Lipe in April-May  (5 Answers)

we were planning to spend two weeks in Krabi-Similan-Ko Phi Phi-Ko Lipe starting from April 21st.
I know this time is the end of high season; however, on many websites I read that this is the worst time to visit and it is rainy, "unbearably" hot and humid.
We don't mind if it is not always sunny, but I would like to ask if someone who has been there in that period or who lives there, it the weather is really so bad and if we should take into consideration to change our destination.
Many thanks,

Should we get package deal with the Phra Nang Inn?  (3 Answers)

We are considering getting a package deal at the Phra Nang Inn on Ao Nang Beach, Krabi. A reduced rate for a couple of days and nights, including transportation from airport and 2 tours. We are planning this because we have never been to Thailand before (once we know a place well we do things ourselves). Is this a good decision? Have any of you had experience with package deals at hotels around Krabi?

Ferry - Ao Nang to Koh Phi Phi  (5 Answers)

Here I am again with another boat question. I read a post on another forum that said "The ferry from Ao Nang is dangerously overloaded, does not have fire protection equipment and may not have life vests for all passengers."
Are they really this bad?
Are there any ferry companies that you can recommend that are safe or perhaps a reasonable priced speedboat option?

Getting on and off boats....please help ease my concerns  (5 Answers)

I will be in southern Thailand (Ao Nang, Koh Phi Phi ,Phuket)for 3 weeks in February and in order to do all the things that I am planning will have to be on boats on many occasions. Trouble is, I do not know how to swim and am afraid. I am not afraid once I am actually on the boat, what my main concern is is getting on and off some of the different vessels (ie: longtail boats, speedboats etc,) when there is no pier. I am middle-aged, not very flexible and can`t swim and I have visions of standing in deep water with waves trying to get on a boat or them making me jump off a boat to get to a beach. Can anyone help ease my fears

lizzards in Koh Tao  (10 Answers)

Terrified of big lizzards and gehkos (and very big insects, for that matter). After reading different hotel reviews, I couldnt find one place to stay where people hadn't pointed out that lizzards or gehkos had got in their rooms. I do respect all animals and I wish them no harm. But really, I will not sleep a minute if I know there's a lizzard on the wall. Could any of you recommend a hotel on the island where to stay relatively safe from them? Maybe something a bit less foresty? As said, I wish them no harm, but I wouldn't want this to ruin our time on the island.

Thanks very much in advance.

From Koh Mook to Railay/Ton Sai and from Railay/Ton Sai to Krabi airport in night  (4 Answers)

What is the fastest way to travel from Koh Mook (Ko Muk) to Railay/Ton Sai? By boat all the way or bus/taxi from Trang mainland to Railay? Is it possible to do the travelling during the evening or early morning so we can use the day for other things than travelling? Saved time is more important than the cost, but of course we will not pay a fortune for the trip.

Our plane leaves frpm Krabi Ariport 7 a.m. and we would like to travel direct from Railay/Ton Sai to the airport during the night/early morning. I guess we have to be at the airport latest 05.30 a.m. We have not booked accomodation yet, så travelling from Railay East ot Railey West or Ton Sai does not matter. Any suggestions how to arrange this?

Schedule for ferries Ao Nang - Phi Phi and Phi Phi - Phuket  (2 Answers)

In few days I am flying with the family to Thailand. Please can you advise me a serious web site with actual time schedule for ferries a) from Ao Nang to Phi Phi, b) from Phi Phi to Phuket, where are actual information and where is possible to book the tickets. Because I have found many sites, but with different times of ferry departures.
Do you recommend to book the ferry tickets in advance, or is enough just to go to the port and buy them there? I have some worries about not catching the tickets due many tourists wanting to travel.
Is there some priority tickets to have better seats ?
Is it possible to fly to Phi phi or from Phi phi by sea plane ? I have found just information about Destination air, which probably finished their regular services...
