ko tao or ko chang or Krabi - 2 many options!!!!

Hi there - wondered if you could help?

Am flying to BKK this week and going with some friends to Ko Samet, but then I have a week to use. I dont know much about Ko Chang, but I could head back to BKK then on to Samui and Ko Tao, however is it worth the hassle when KC is nearer?

What Im after is a chilled out atmosphere with friendly young ish (late 20s early 30s) crowd, where its easy to meet people as will be on my own. I really liked Samui 10 years ago, but found it over-commericalised and like Phuket getting resorty and coupley last time I went (4 years ago) - not what Im after. Also want some nightlife - but not banging, and access to good diving. Am guessing Ko Tao meets these goals?? I guess another option is Krabi again any preference for those whove been to all???

Thanks folks

Hi Matt, check out Railey Beach near Ao Nang in Krabi. Sounds just what you are looking for. Fantastic diving, climbing and volleyball and soccer on the beach.
