HI

If into partying then Koh Samuii and the full moon partys would be best for you.

the time of year also can dictate which is the best island to go to for best weather.

Look at a map and you will see how far Ko Chang is from Koh Samuii

there are no boats that I know of unless you hire a private yacht.

Hi

Samui would probably more suitable, and if you are about head to Koh Phanang for the moon parties.

Koh Chang is just too far to do in the same trip.

I would stick with Samui if you want to party.
