Hi..why dont you try Koh Samui, it has so many beutiful beaches and fit for you considered Koh Samui not crowded and quite. You can book Nok Air, and will transfer you directly to Koh Samui Airport. There are many resort, mid range or the luxury one, all depend on you, Happy holyday.
Kata Beach has soft sands and crystal clear water to swim in. The waves are reasonable for swimming in January. The beach is crowded, but not outragious like Patong. There are many beach chairs for rent and many stands selling fruit and a variety of drinks, including the wonderful Chang Beer. Great for sunsets too. At night there are often barbeques on the beach with cushions and candles laid out to reggae musc. A very nice combination of a chill, but lively vibe.
Kata has a nice, compact village only several blocks from the beach. The heart of the action is in the central part of the beach. Here you will find all your basic tourist fare: nice restaurants, good selection of nightlife which includes the infamous Thailand girlie bars, as well as many travel agencies for daytrip excursions. There are also many places to shop for bargins. There is also a night time outdoor market on most nights. Great for fresh fish, fruit and bargin shopping.
Anyone visiting Koh Samui should definitely take the time to go and see Angthong National Marine Park. There are a number of companies offering day tours to the park, with a variety of different boats and tour options which include snorkelling, kayaking and sightseeing.The limestone rock formations within the park are simply stunning, there's the " Emerald Lake " , a small inland sea of an incredible green colour which is connected to the outer sea by a sub-sea cavern.There are caves to explore with amazing stalagmite and stalactite formations.This area is also the habitat of the rare Pink and Irrawaddy Dolphins and you may just be lucky enough to sight them.The islands within the park have many small and beautiful sandy beaches where you can stop and relax. The area is thought to be a source of inspiration for Alex Garland's 1996 novel The Beach.
Koh Nangyuan is a hidden jem about a 15 minutes boat ride from Koh Tao.This island is unique because it has three small island conected by a streched of white sand beach.We had a buffet lunch here and did some snorkelling off the beach where we saw lots of colourful fish .This location is the most tranquil place I've ever been in my life, and the snorkeling was spectacular .Nangyuan is an incredibly beautiful place
We visited Ko Tao & Nangyuan on a one day boat tour from Koh Samui.It cost about 1500 baht per person including lunch.
Spent about hour/half snorkelling off Tao Island which was real nice .The water was very clear with lots coral and sea life .As we were leaving a couple of turtles came and bid us goodbye.Thai people say that seeing a turtle especially at Koh Tao is "good luck" .
We then headed on to Ko Nangyuan for a buffet lunch and more swimming and snorkelling.Ingeneral a fantastic day outdoors.

Take 45 min with speedboat from Phuket to this fabulous island Phi Phi Island. Here we have Phi Phi Lee and Phi Phi Don island and the pics you see are from Phi Phi Don island. The sun outhere is very hot and do beware of the extremily hot weather. You can shop a lot with many specials shops and of course for divers this is paradise:)
After the sunami the place is almost rebuild but as shown on the pics some palms are missing.
This is a good place for the children - they can come in touch with the animals and get photos.
It`s not a modern zoo, seems very old and the employees are very nice.
You can get photos with snakes, elephants, monkeys, tigers an many othrs animals.
If you are on vacation in Phuket you must see the Zoo.
Chaweng Beach is nice. When the tide is low u can almost walk to another Island across the way. Food is cheap. U can rent a jeep for about $10.00 a day. They give u the jeep empty and when u return it they empty it out. We watched them do it while having breakfast across the street. Went to some waterfalls a little ways from Chaweng beach, not too far the Island isnt that big. At the bottom of the waterfall there will be someone that will take u up the hill, About a 20 minute hike straight up (They do expect a tip). We thought it was a little refreshing. The hike down was a little better.
A common site in southern tailand is the londtail boats cruising up and down the coast . If you get curious about another beach ( It was hard for me to imagine a beach more beautiful than Karon) you can catch a ride for a few bht to another beach....or for 400 baht per hour you can rent one to take you on a siteseeing trip.
There is a cave temple in Phang Nga (pronounced Pang Nyah) province in southern Thailand, known as the monket cave temple. I wondered why it was called that since we went through the temple and didn't see a monkey ,.... until we were leaving ( they were in the parking lot ) It is a neat centuries old cave ...there was a monk inside who gladly accepted donations. The monkeys were outside and they were loving the bananas tourists were giving them!! Be aware these aren't tame monkey so proceed accordingly!!
One of the best things to do when you are on holiday in Southern Thailand is to take of the many animal safaris, which typically include Elephant Trekking. These very large beasts make for a wonderful afternoon stroll, and can move up the mountain at a nice smooth relaxed pace.
We went on a day trip to a Muslim fishing village.
The entire village including schools, mosques, and sports complex was on stilts, and the only way to and from the village was by boat.
It's an interesting stop. There is a market set up in the narrow passage ways where the residents try hard to sell the tourists something before the boat leaves. The sel mostly Indian goods , such as nice fabrics ,clothes and jewellery.
There is a seafood restaurant at the dockside . We had the calamari and they were fresh and good.
