We will have 3 - 4 weeks in Thailand in SEPTEMBER, 2012.
We would like to spend 1 week at the end of September in either Phuket or Kho Samui, but we don't know what the differences are, or how to choose.
We are mid-30's and would like to have a relaxing beach stay, with day trips to do snorkelling type activities, and would also like to be able to go out at night and have a nice meal, a few drinks or see some culture.
We are not total party animals, but we are also not wanting to JUST lay on the beach, we want to be able to get out and do things.
So, based on this info, should we choose Koh Samui or Phuket?
PS: We realise that this is the wet season, so any differences in weather between the two would be appreciated also :)
