    I just got back from a 3 week trip over new years, I had the most fun in Koh Samui and Chang Mai. In Koh Samui I avoided Chaewang beach as it is a bit too touristy in the sense of Aussie bars/Irish Bars and lots of boozy Brits and Aussies etc. Lami beach and the surrounds is a bit more chilled, try the swing bar for a few drinks and good music. Bangkok is great for shopping but very hectic, a few days there I was ready for something a little more low key. I found Chang Mai and the golden triangle region to the north well worth it. Finally if you dive the liveaboards going out to the Similan islands are great. Prices are reasonable (compared to Australia) and the diving was very good. I went on the White Manta and it was a well run operation. One more personal view point, Phuket town and the main beaches are a lot like Chaewang on Samui, there is a lot more to Thailand then this side of the country, my only wish is I had more time to see more!
