Honeymoon in the Andaman Islands

Hi

We are getting married in Khao Lak in March 2013. We are planning on having a honeymoon for a couple of weeks after this and staying on islands/beaches along the Andaman coast. I was thinking that Koh Lanta would be a good option but open to suggestions of other places in that region. We would be staying mostly in budget accommodation and would like to be situated in areas where there are things to do but not too overcrowded/ noisy. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

We like Nopparath Thara beach next door from Ao Nang - calm and "more Thai", but with all activities within easy reach. Lanta is a good option, more relaxing than the Ao Nang area. The Trang province south of Krabi has many charming islands, beaches that are white as opposed to the golden brown of Lanta, and is still not overrun by tourists. Koh Muk (Mook) or Ngai (Hai) are more populated than e.g. Kradan - and then you have Lipe much further south. There are some pretty islands closer to Phuket as well, such as Racha (Raya).

If you go north from Khao Lak towards Ranong and the Myanmar border you will find Koh Payam which is a throw back to Thai beach resorts as they used to be. Just a few resorts, a few restaurants, beautiful deserted beaches and no sign of McD's, Starbucks and the like. Absolutely delightful!.

You could also consider the brand new Cousin Koh Kho Khao Resort on Koh Kho Khao, aka Kho Khao Island or just KKK, which is just 20km north of Khao Lak and a 10 minute feryy ride across from Baan Nam Khen, the site of the main Tsunami Memorial. See http://www.cousinresort.com/

The Trang Islands and Koh Phayam look really nice, hopefully we will have time to go to both areas. Thanks for your help
