I want to go away with my partner for a couple of weeks at the end of October. We were looking at spending a few days in Bangkok and then maybe trying to get an island hopping trip for a 3/4 days from Phuket. Finally ending with a week in the Sarojin at Khao Lak. The hotel looks amazing, but we are looking for some sun. Would we be better off going further south to catch better weather or is it all much of a muchness.
Are there any good island trips etc we could do from Khao Lak, I know the Similian islands are closed, would other things we closed as well?
We want to get to Phi Phi and possibly the James Bond islands, although this is def open for debate (I assume the best place to do this is from Phuket). Please let me know of any good tour operators for the island hopping trips as well.
Finally my partner does not swim, she is happy to get in the water with life jacket/noodle etc would this mean we cannot go on any of the trips?
Thanks for the help.
