Has anyone been to phuket thailand

Our last overseas holiday for Phuket Thailand for 14 days and it was the kids first overseas trip on a plane. We all loved it so much and it was an experience for the boys also. I do recommend it as a great, relaxing, enjoyable holiday with great shopping and beautiful beaches and scenaries.

Kelly says: Hi Kia, I thought exactly the same as you my boys loved the experience of the Thai people and how fortunate we are living in Australia. We loved every minute of our holiday and I would go back in an instant again. Reply

Kids club was a great hit with the kids as was the in-house rescued baby elephant. At night the hotel had a local market set up so you could eat market food without going anywhere and there was always entertainment too including magicians, musicians etc. etc. Just brilliant. Reply

Kiwi chick says: I find it helpful to use www.tripadvisor.com or similar to check out any hotel you are thinking of using. Some areas of Phuket are very crowded and it is hard to find a hotel on the beach. We stayed at Kata Noi and it was the last beach on the road so peaceful and a great hotel complex. Reply

Kelly says: Yes tripadvisor.com is excellent, we used it before we left to look at different restaurants in Phuket and it was very helpful indeed. Reply

Tropical says: Hi,
Have just returned from spending 2 weeks on Koh Samui, Thailand. We stayed at the north end of the island where it wasn't so crowded. Weather perfect, only 1 afternoon shower. Owners & staff very friendly & food is so cheap. Just been down to my Travel Agent to book a month in September staying at the same place. We just love Samui.

says: Hi Kelly - we have been to Phuket 3 times just love everything about Thialand.
Shopping is great but cheaper in Bangkok. This year going again too Singapore first then to Phuket then to Bangkok. We go elephant traking every time we go and try a different tour place every time. Fantasea is an amazingshow for adults and children if you did not see it its a must next time you go. We are not young but we enjoyed the night life but not to the extent the young ones do. I think what I enjoyed the most was the beautiful friendly people. Reply

Trishii says: Fantasea is a cruel attraction that forces elephants and other animals to perform degrading tricks - don't go there. Everything involving trained elephants involves immense cruelty, please do some research before you go trekking next time. Tiger Temple is also a sham.
Everyone who travels overseas to partake in activities involving animals, please do some research before you leave Australia!
