suggestions on best rates or tour agency & others

by donnanolasco

hello,

due to time constraint....will only be staying overnight in phuket so I'm thinking we could have a Phuket day tour, since we'll be arriving around 9-10am. what is the best tour rate for this? or could we just hire a cab that can bring us to places of interest in phuket? other suggestions how we could see phuket on a day or good shopping center maybe?

at night I'm planning of watching phuket fantasea with dinner. is this worth doing? should we need to book for this? any other suggestions?

the next morning, phi phi island tour. what is the best & affordable way to get around the island or do we need to book for this? can you suggest a good agency that we could use?

Also can you suggest cheapest hotel that we could stay the night and then leave our things when we go day tour to phi phi island? or is that possible

after phi phi island we go back to phuket and plan to take a bus going to bangkok.

thank you.

I would suggest you to hire a taxi from hotel or at agent. This way, you can control where you want to go with limited time. Sites include: Chinatown, Rung Hill (a nice lunch or coffee break spot), Chalong Temple, Promthep Cape for sunset, Jungcelon shopping mall in Patong and Central Festival mall at the edge of Phuket town.

Phi Phi is a day trip and can be booked at your hotel or agent.

In Phi Phi...you walk....In Phuket...reserve early with the many tour agency for the day at Fantasea, If this is your first time in Phuket and you know how to ride a scooter well...(I said well)...rent one and ride the coast to the Cape tip and back, a map will show you one main road along the coast, so you can't get lost. Let me remind you that there are many steep hills and slopes up and down Phuket, and you must wear a helmet and carry a drivers license. If no scooter, negotiable cab drivers can ride you along the coast. you can rent a car for 25 USD a day too. I had to when I took my mom to Phuket. Just ride along (route 4233) on the coast to see surin beach,kamala beach karon Beach, kata beach Kata View Point, to Phromthep Cape and back. skip Phuket Town as I find nothing attractive about it except maybe the market. Along the way there are many tour offices that you can stop by to book a trip to Phi Phi. many deals, so look for bargins...they will pick you up at the hotel and return you to the same place with a overnight stay in Phi Phi for 1500 bahts, all hotel and transportation included. In Phuket I used Crystal Tours behind the Burger King and Royal Palm hotel (tel 66 76 341549) ask for Rose or Chanya. In Phuket I like the Sunset Beach resort...it is in north Patong away from the noise (tel 66 76 342482), but if you like the noise there is a Holiday Inn and a Marriott in town next to each other. There are plenty of hotels in Phuket, but the cheaper ones are the Bouitques call guest houses.. If you need more helpon this shoot me a e-mail...just came back from there last winter.

thanks for the reply:) is it better to booked a tour ahead of time like in fantasea & phi phi island tour or wait till we get there? are the internet rates a good deal or much cheaper if we do this when we get there?

are there metered taxi in phuket like in bangkok? or they have a fix rate for particular route?

Re: suggestions on best rates or tour agency & others

by mim95

no need to book ahead...my impression is that it's cheaper to book when you get there. Forget about metered taxi in town, you always have to negotiate with the driver for fare, and they are definitely more expensive than Bangkok but nothing you can do about it.

There is metered taxi at Phuket airport though, ignore the people and turn right at the exit and you'll see the taxis there. There is an extra 50 Baht airport fee that is added to the fare.

Travel Tips for Phuket

Historical weather data for Phuket

by genie47

Historically, there are windows of clear weather even during the dastardly May-Oct monsoon season.

See this archive link to WindGuru.

You would agree that there are two windows of clear weather. That would be the last week of May just before Jun begins and the last week of Jun to the first week of Jul.

So go ahead, take advantage of the low rates for this time for the best resorts available.

However, please note that past data is not entirely accurate to predict future trends. Use the data at your own risk.

Khanom La

by Tina-Perth

Khanom La is a traditional Southern Thailand sweet. It comes from the province of Nakhon Si Thammarat.

This sweet is made up of fine threads and there are two uses associated with it. The first is that it is used as a sacrifice offered to ancestors at the Sat Duan Sip (Tenth Moon) Festival. It represents the threads of clothing.

The second is that it is made for a very tall, thin ghost called 'Pret' that has a tiny mouth, the size of the eye of a needle and with very huge hands, the size of palm fronds which cannot pick up the food, so it can only eat suck up such fine threads of food.

The sweet is made from rice flour, syrup and water then put into a container, traditionally a coconut shell with small holes in the bottom. It is moved back and forth over a hot pan to create the threads and then can be gathered up and shaped into various shapes.

The picture shows a lady preparing Khanom La at a festival we went to.

Scuba dive at Anita's Reef (Island 5, Similan NP)

by kelnsha

You have to go on a liveaboard boat and it takes about 9 hours or more in order to reach here.

Once underwater, you will be amazed by the underwater visibilty and the rich marine lifes. Pictures speak a thousand words.

Benjarong Pottery, Thailand's finest.

by Tina-Perth about Siam Ceramics

Siam Ceramics on Soi Post Office in Patong is a stunning shop filled with the most beautiful traditional Thai Royal Bone China. It is of the highest quality, pure and translucent. Handpainted by gifted artisans of many years experience, each piece undergoes myriad hours of painting, being fired between colours. There are at least 3 colours on Benjarong porcelain, but more often there are 5 or 8 colours. A new style contains even more colours and is exquisite to look at close up.

Store Manager Alice is extremely patient and friendly. When we've made purchases in there, we've spent at least an hour trying out different combinations of pieces. The staff are particularly helpful and do not pressure you at all. Everything is packed superbly for you, so there's not a problem with getting your pieces home safely.

Benjarong Porcelain is actually used by the King of Thailand, and once was only available to him. There are so many different pieces to choose from, you'll find it difficult - even to select the painting style you like the most.

There are imitation products available around Phuket, but they are nowhere near as nice as the real Benjarong porcelainware. Do yourself a favour and go to Siam Ceramics before you look at buying anything else. There are some great small, affordable pieces that will make meaningful, special gifts for friends.

Please look at the websites below for some good pictures and further information, particularly the second website!

Here is what the patterns look like up close; Benjarong patterns

Bing Bong-bars

by susu77

These kind of bars you may want to visit once out of curiacity but then you have seen it all. I have a hint that all the bars have the same show. For somebody who dont know I can tell that in bing bong-shows women use their genitals to do all kind if wierd stuff. You also need to be aware that there is always some kind of trick and con to get you to drink more their expencive drinks while wateing for the show to start. And you really may need to wait..
