Looking to go to Phuket in June but never been down that end off Thailand before. The flights seem cheap about 23 with air Asia from don muaug airport. Just wanted to know what area to stay in and good hotels. Or I'm I better going to krabi or samui? Don't know much about that end off Thailand

If you're going to be in Phuket you'll want to be in the thick of it as the taxi drivers are all robbing bastards. Patong is the main resort and you'll want to be walking distance to Soi Bangla. I've not been in years so don't really know where's any good these days.

I'm totally over Phuket now and it'll be a long time before I go back

I think I've been 3-4 times in the space of 4 years and it's pretty much the same same,done all the islands twice now,phukets very much the tourist choice for young Aussies.... you'll understand when you go
if you,Ve not been before Ian definitely go and check it out,quite expensive now though and on a par with Bangkok prices
the yorkshires a good place to stop at

No problem Bryson. Had a look at that Yorkshire Hotel good reviews but a bit off putting that not all the rooms have Windows. Seen I one that was a 10min walk from soi bangla but that mite be to far away was at the top end off the beach
