Hello all, looking for a bit of advise. We love Koh Samui & have just returned from our 4th visit, staying in the quieter part of Chaweng this time. We are debating whether to try Khao Lak in May next year, we did Phuket a few years ago and didn't like that at all, too commercialised, much prefer Ko Samui, but would Khao Lak be too quiet for us?
If anyone has been to both, would be interested in your thoughts. We don't like to be too remote, like to be close to the beach, bars, restaurants, maybe a bit of live music, but don't want as busy as Phuket. Should we try it?
