We spent about a week on the small island of Koh Toa, a very chilled place with bars on the beach and dudes who spin fire around on sticks. I would recommend it for couples looking for somewhere romantic. There were many such couples walking arm in arm along the beach gazing into the middle distance. It made me sick.
I can tell you in the meanwhile that a good volume of drink has made the return journey, the um, foreign heat has affected my judgement in relation to those girl things and we have now travelled to the island of Ko Phangan.
