by vanvoon82

Hi, I know that kata and karon are quiter than Patong and have nicer beaches, but what about these places: Kamala, Mai Khao, Nai Yang Cape Panwa, Rawai, Chernagtalay, Chalong Bay andNai Harn. How are they different from Kata, and what are their properties, I have zero info about them, could somebody help pls.?
I would also like to know when is the off peak season? Thanks

Green season is from May 1 to Oct 31, the official time for the monsoon season. You can get the best deal at this time, and generally speaking, the worse time of the monsoon is around September. In general, you get a discount, but it is a gamble on the weather, which is quite localized as it could be raining at one place but sunny just a few miles away.

You can find out more about each beach here:

Which beach to go really depends on your personality and interests and what type of accommodations and amenities you need. And you can also rent a car / scooter or hire a taxi to go to another beach.

Generally Patong, Karon and Kata are busiest and most well-known "tourist ghettos" on the island. Nai Harn is very popular with local residents and it is also a large expat residential area, together with Rawai and Chalong.
Surni and Kamala have nice beaches, well worth visiting. Bangtao is also good but it is a bit far from everything, so if you plan to go out in the evenings I wouldn't recommend it. Same goes for Mai Khao and Nai Yang, which are close to airport.

My two favourite beaches are Bang Tao and Mai Khao. On very high tides and rough days, though, Bang Tao is not so good, as there is little shore available when the water is high (spring tides or storms).

Mai Khao is a beautiful beach (if you keep away from the busy end). Golden sand, Sheoak trees and almost no one there.

I also like Nai Harn and Nai Yang. Chalong Bay is no good as a beach. The east coast of the island is muddy.

Eating

by Tina-Perth

The traditional way of eating in Thailand is to add rice to your plate, then take just a small portion from each dish onto your plate - and just one dish at a time. It's not like we do when we eat - putting everything onto your plate at once. Usually the person closest to the dish will serve their fellow diners rather than handing the plates of food around the table.

Eating in Thailand is done somewhat slowly. It is to be savoured. Thais can take ages to eat a meal, stopping to talk for 15-20 minutes before trying the next dish of food. Thais eat with a spoon and fork or chopsticks (chopsticks are usually reserved for meals with noodles). You actually eat from the spoon and use the fork or chopsticks to push the food onto it.

For traditional Thai eating, a plate of fresh greens will be served with your meal. It will include things like young Cashew leaves, Cha Om leaves, raw Thai eggplant, long beans, cucumbers, Gotu Kola leaves etc. These accompaniments are for digestion and also for eating with chilli dishes to cool the palate. Meals are usually finished with fresh fruit.

Phukets largest Shopping Mall

by lindyz about Central Festival Phuket Town

We only went here once on the day Peter took us for a drive, and really only ate lunch here at Fuji, which is his favourite restaurant! Central Festival is I think the largest shopping mall in Phuket and also has the advantage of being air conditioned! Huge selection of shops and restaurants here, so maybe next time I return to Phuket I shall just have to spend a day shopping here! Also, many people will tell you that things are much cheaper in Phuket Town as opposed to Patong. Phuket Town is about a 30 minute drive from Patong I think, so not very far at all. You can hire a tuk tuk, a driver or even catch a bus there.

Tiger Entertainment Bar Beer

by shane_02 about Tiger Entertainment Bar Beer

With the combination of many small bar counters and music at the ground storey, and dancing floor on the second storey, Tiger Entertainment Bar Beer is simply the biggest bar in Patong or perhaps Phuket.

From good liqours, dance floor, music, live band with DJ to sexy local girls, one can see Caucasians, Asians and Blacks all flocking to this bar.
