My wife and I are travelling to Phuket in June and we love our seafood.
We were hoping to get our fill of seafood during our 10 day holiday there.
Could anyone recommend a great seafood buffet or affordable seafood restaurant on the island?
Many thanks team!

Well we are in phuket now and planned to go to langkawi on a ferry. While we are sure we have seen such a service the same day, we are now struggling........ oopops, wife not very happy with me...... does anyone know of such a service......
First time to Phuket.. coming during the long x'mas weekend next week.. will be there for four days.. wondering whether to stay in Kata, Karon or Patong.. been reading up a bit.. general consensus it that Patong (and Karon) is very commercialised, over-rated, tourist trap, and so on.. initial inclination is to stay at Patong to see what the fuss is all about.. would definitely do some day trips or island hopping to phi phi or james bond island so won't be trapped in Patong for the whole four days...
I was in Bali a month ago for a few days and really enjoyed the quieter Seminyak area and the beach even though its pretty touristy.. but worried being peak period Patong might not cut it... any thoughts are welcomed.. thanks.
I am travelling to Phuket from Dec 15 to 19 and I will reaching Phuket around 8pm, possibly reaching my hotel around 9:30pm. I am planning to go for a one day Islam tour the next day. Is it possible to book the tour package after I reach hotel around 9:30pm or the tour agents will be closed at that time. I tried to book through my hotel. But they don't understand what I am saying. Any advise ??
Can any VTer advise on hotel room near Lomprayah bus station? Want to catch the 10am bus from downtown HKT to Samui on Oct 31. Many thnks!

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!
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).
I will be teaching in Trat for 12 weeks at the beginning of next year. I have Fri-Sun each weekend to travel and explore. Phuket is definitely on my list of places I need to visit while in Thailand. Can anyone offer me some advice on what I should do or see while I am in Phuket?

I am in Phuket and I am looking to do an Islands tour but wanting recommendations on tour companies to use. Some reviews say that some companies are better timed with arriving at certain islands and others arrive when the islands are crowded etc. I believe the speed boat tours are better? Spoke to a local tour place today and she gave me James Bond by Speedboat that includes 6 islands in total for 1900Baht pp. The leaflet says www.amazingislandtour.com but when I visit this site it doesn't show the tour offered!
we are 2 adults and 2 x 16 year olds.
Dear VT Members,
I had done research on places I want to go while in Phuket but still find it difficult to arrange it. This is my first time ti Phuket. Would very much appreciate your great assistance on this.
My parents and I arrive Phuket on 17th July 5am. We will proceed to the hotel to check-in (I book the room from 16th July). Rest for half a day before we explore Phuket.
We will be in phuket from 17th July until 23rd July (7D6N), staying at Tony Resort for 4 nights and for the rest of the nights, have not decided where to stay. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. Shall we stay in Kata beach ?
These are the places we want to go/do:
a) 1/2 day city tour
b) 1 day phi phi island
c) 1/2 day James Bond (is half day enough?)
d) Weekend market
e) Robinson Shopping Mall
g) Fantasea show
h) Siam Niramat / Simon Cabaret Show --> I couldn't decide which one should we watch
i) Elephant Trekking --> is this worth to do ? Both my parents are at age 60.
j) Any recommendation for shrine that we shall visit ?
Or if you have other places to recommend ?
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
Hi, We will be flying into Krabi in the middle of January 2016 and have ten days to plan before flying out of Phuket. This will be our first time in these areas and would like a little guidance for us to make our choice of suitable itinerary.
We would like to split the time between the two areas and would like suggestions of suitable locations.
We basically want real nice beaches, sea good for snorkelling, good beach food shacks / restaurants.
We don't want loads of discos, clubs, drunken raves, but do enjoy a good walk round local bars.
Can anyone give us some ideas. We don't mind catching ferries from Krabi but don't want to spend our time hopping.
So ideally it will be two locations satisfying what we want.
Many thanks all in advance
