Krabi or Koh Samui?


I am traveling with my parents to Thailand now in 1 week, so in august.

I am looking for beautiful resort, preferably villa or cottage accomodation directly on the beach, not too much of hills around. I want lovely and relaxing atmosphere with beautiful view and beach, delicious food as well.

I am considering between Krabi or Koh Samui and i can not make up my mind as i have never been there before.

I am also looking for some activities, for example boat trips to the islands, snorkling, and also a bit of shopping, elephant riding.

Can you please help me and give me some advices from your experiences?

Thank you very much.

Weatherwise, Koh Samui is better than Krabi in August - the rainy season differs between the Gulf island and the Andaman coast

Yes, it's monsoon weather in rabi so I wouldn't risk going there, stick to the Gulf side of Thailand.

Yes agree with the others August the weather will be better in koh Samui. And if you're decide to go to koh Samui I would suggest you start looking for accoms now as its can get very busy at this time of year.

There are plenty of things to do, islands hoping, water activity, boat trip.

Happy planing
