im debating staying in nakhon thammarat. for a week. just go to a gym get some massages .  or go to khanom beach area. so I can run on beach their. have u been to these two places?  I assume khanom beach area has some good massage places and food ?

Very nice beach at khanom, enough restaurants to keep you happy. Note that the actual town is about 5k inland,decent market etc there.

NKT is a good base for exploring nearby waterfalls and beaches but in itself is fairly ordinary , you would get bored after a couple of days I think.

Very laid back , some Farang expats but very few non Thai tourists, I stayed there a week and enjoyed it.

Look for the yellow signs with something resembling the # 17 in red - am a Vegetarian, too and found great places wherever I go.  ...

The drive from Surat Thani to Krabi is about 2 to 2.5hrs by car, by bus it'll be more like 3 to 4 hours.
