khao lak or phuket

please help guys with some advice

Which would be a better choice between the two? I prefer quieter stuff and relaxed holiday. But should have the good beach restaurants/food and quiet n relaxing beach bars.

Just want to chill and maybe ride a bike to explore.

Where shld i head to? pls help

From what you've said Khao Lak sounds it would be a better option for you but Phuket can be as quiet or as busy as want it to be depending on where you stay and what you do.

Been to phuket in karon/patong/bang tau etc

I suppose the weather will be similar too in Aug..

i think the deciding factor would be food availability..does khao lak have many restos and seafood by the beach in mid aug?

You've already had a description of Khao Lak in your question about how it compares with Hua Hin and this link will tell you what it is like now from a TA Member who regularly visits at this time of year tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297914-i10908-k…

The Top Question FAQ on the right "What is Khao Lak like in the Wet Season?" gives links to information over previous years.

In short though, plenty of restaurants open in Khao Lak but, because of beach conditions, more inland than at the beach. There are, however, beachfront resorts that have their own restaurants and bars located at the beach in more sheltered locations than local beach "huts".
