What is the best (fastest/cheapest) way to get from Surin to Pak Chong? I will be there for the elephant festival and I am hoping to head to Khao Yai afterwards. thanks!
A spur of the moment decision to fly to Phuket next month (April 2013) with my 13 yr old daughter, a weekend getaway if I may say and an advance birthday gift for her. It was a preference to stay a little bit farther away from the crowd in Patong Beach, I was actually hoping we can get a hotel in Karon/Kata area, but next thing I know I was already booking BAAN CHAYNA HOTEL/RESORT which is located in SURIN BEACH. I know nothing about the place and so as most of my friends who’s gone through a Phuket trip as most of them stayed in either Patong or Kata areas.
Has anyone of you stayed in this hotel before? They have good reviews, that I know, but I am more worried about transfers to and fro, how accessible is the place to where the piers are to start off the island tours? It was a bit of a challenge to do research online as most of the tourists sharing their experiences mostly stayed in the most commonly known tourist areas (Patong/Kata/Karon) and not Surin. HELP!
I have a friend who is getting married at the Chedi in Surin in Feb 2010 and will be travelling out there with my wife and 2 children ( 7 years and 2 1/2 years ) from the UK.
firstly, Can anyone recommend any good places to stay that offer good value and are good for children.
Perhaps there are nearby towns that are in easy travelling distance that may also have some good hotels.
Perhaps a villa anywhere as there will be other people coming out from the UK as this may bring down costs.
