    • Places to see from Phuket - 20 day holiday

      Phuket Sep 26, 2015 at 5:11 PM

      Hi there!
      My fiancé and I are going to be visiting Phuket for the first time in late Jan for our wedding and honeymoon. We are staying in Kamala for 10 days then we have 10 days unplanned at this point. We were thinking of staying around Phuket as we don't want to spend a lot of time traveling around or trying to do/see too much. The main thing is to have a relaxing holiday- snorkelling, privacy, some sightseeing, chilling out, scenic views- but equally we don't want to miss out on any 'must sees'! There's just so much to choose from and we can't do them all (without exhausting ourselves)!
      We definitely plan to see Phang Nga Bay but other than that, we were thinking : Koh Lanta, Krabi, Koh Racha, Ko Yao Noi/Yai, khao lak, Similan Islands, James Bond Island Tour?
      We were considering splitting the last 10 days between two places such as Krabi and Khao Lak? Or is that too much traveling? Or should we just stay in one place for the rest of the 10 days? Maybe a place that is convenient to do some of the trips on our short list? Would Cape Panwa or the east coast of Phuket be a good choice?
      Thank you so much for your answers in advance!

      Phuket Sep 14, 2015 at 12:17 PM

      My boyfriend and I will be staying in Phuket for four nights in January before going to Trat to teach. We have been researching hotels, but I am trying to figure out where the best location would be to stay. Could anyone offer suggestions? We are trying to fit in as much as possible into our time in Phuket without being too overwhelmed (we still want some time to relax on the beach or elsewhere).

      Similan Islands - what to do and how to get there?

      by travelinchen Online Now Jan 22, 2011 at 2:05 PM


      I think I'd really would like to go to the Similan islands from what I see on the pictures (I assume it's quiet and relaxed and not too many tourists in the beginning of March). But all I read about on the web is how great it is for diving.
      Now, since my partner doesn't dive, we probably both will do only snorkeling. So I was wondering whether snorkeling is actually worth on the Similan Islands or whether this is a rather expensive trip for only snorkeling.

      Also, to keep things as cheap as possible, we would want to stay in the terrace house on one of the islands for three days or so.

      But I couldn't exactly find out how we would get there (we'd be in Chiang Mi just before, so we would be ready to fly to Phuket)? Can anyone tell us the cheapest (while being perfectly safe) way to get there? And the easiest? ;-) Though we obviously don't want to do the liveaboard thing.

      Also, can anyone tell me difference between a zone 3 and zone 2 room?

      Thanks so much!

    • Bungalows on Ko Miang

      by eoa106 Online Now Nov 23, 2006 at 5:24 PM

      Hi there,

      I am going to stay a few days on Ko Miang in one of the bungalows there. They seem to be numbered from 1 to 20, all with the same price but varying view. When I book I have to specify the particular number of the bungalow I want to book, but I have no idea which one has the best views.

      I've read elsewhere that there's one or two bungalows with great views, but no number was given. Will anyone on here be able to help me with this? What number bungalow has the best views?
