      about a holiday to Phuket

      Phuket Apr 18, 2014 at 12:06 AM

      Hello, my husband and I are planning to spend a week in Phuket in July. I have a few questions to ask and I would appreciate early answers so I can book our tickets:-)

      1. We found the trip through a travel agency but it cost 1000 euros more than if we book it on our own. Is it that difficult to do that without a group and a guide? (I don't think so but anyway).
      2. What about visas to Thailand? How do we arrange that?
      3. Do we have to go to Bangkok and then to Phuket? We found a cheap ticket (stop at Jordan and then to Phuket straight). Isn't it better?
      4. The airport is close to which beach? I realize that there are various beaches (depending on your taste). Which one is closer to the airport? Or is that a trivial matter?
      5. Is going to the other islands expensive? Is food expensive? I mean, as a holiday in general, does it require a lot of pocket money? We want to see the islands and do activities but not to shop.

      Well, I hope I haven't forgotten anything. If I do, I'll post some more questions :-)
      Thank you for your time.

      We will be arriving in Surat thani at 11:30 by train.
      We intend to go to Ko Sumui by ferry but I am told they dont start until 5am.
      Does anybody know the area who can advise me on what to do for 5 hours+ wait until the ferry starts in the morning.
      Should we make our way to where the ferry goes from and wait there?
      Is it safe at night here?

      Buses from Surat Thani to Krabi

      by Diplos Online Now Dec 14, 2005 at 1:26 AM

      Hi,

      Does anyone know how regularly buses leave from Surat Thani to Krabi or what the taxi fare for this journey would be (what is the distance?).

      Basically, I could take an overnight train to ST and then bus to Krabi, but that means hanging around Bangkok for an extra day so I'm thinking of flying in to ST and then either spending the night there and catching a bus the next day, or else catching one the same day.

      Flights are pretty full this time of year!
