My fiance and I are trying to decide on 2 places to spend 4 - 5 days each at among:
We want to relax on the beach, eat good food enjoy beautiful Thailand. We aren't divers but we probably will snorkel once or twice. We also enjoy wildlife and fun attractions. We'd like some nightlife but would like to avoid the party crowds and overdeveloped atmospheres which we've heard exist in Phuket and Ko Samui.
In Khao Lak specifically, what is there to do besides the beach. Are there towns that are fun strolling through? Is 4-5 days there too long if we're not going to dive?
Any advice is appreciated.
