I am planning a trip to Thaiand in March and would like to spend 5 days on the beach in Ko Chang or Ko Mak. I will be with my husband and 2 kids, ages 2 and 4. I would like a moderate priced bungalow; my priority is to be right on the beach. Must be clean, and I would like something with character- no big concrete resorts. AC and swimming pools are a plus but not a necessity. I would lke to keep it under 3000 THB/night. I am considering Birali (although its a little spendy), or Paradise Resort on Ko Chang. Have also seen good things in this forum about KB resort, but its not in my guide book and I can't seem to find any info on the web. Also looking at Monkey Island on Ko Mak, which looks nice. Any advice?
Second question- I would also like to do a few days on a chartered catamaran. The only sailing company I can find around Ko Chang or Pattaya is Gulf Charters Thailand... does anyone know if there are any other charter companies operating in the Ko Chang area?
Thanks in advance for any replies!
