Of the ones you listed, either Ko Phi Phi or Krabi. Also 40 mins from Krabi by boat is Railey Bay, which is awesome, and I definately recommend.

Also consider Koh Phangan- if you get away from Had Rin you'll find awesome beaches to west and north which are much quieter.

Koh Phi Phi is very good though.

Totally agree, especially if you get out and do a bit of snorkelling. There are some amazing remote spots out there. Enjoy..

There are so many beautiful islands and beaches in Thailand. In the south Koh Mook, Koh Lipe and other islands. Koh Talu is a nice small island in the Gulf of Thailand. There are the tourist beaches and islands like pattaya, Phuket and Koh Samui but there are also plenty of beaches and islands where you can visit and enjoy more of the real Thailand

I love Rai Leh (Krabi) and I really like Ko Samui. We stayed up near the big buddha and it was great....away from the party scene (which was only 20 minutes in a taxi)
