Hi one and all.
Well come what may Pennie and I will be landing in Phuket on the 23rd of January. We've narrowed down our short list of places to stay to three hotels namely The Takolaburi, The Apsaras and The Andamania. After checking the prices on the ever reliable Sawadee.com website we've e-mailed the hotels directly to try and get their best rates for our 16 night stay.
If anyone has any thoughts about these three places I'd be grateful to hear them. Plus whether just turning up without booking may get us a better price.
Having been to Khao Lak twice before in 2004 and 2006 we are well aware that these hotels are out of town, but this will not be a problem as we like the peace and quiet and will hire a car as we normally do.
On a personal note can I say thank you to Arandora for all your previous help in planning our trip. Hopefully we'll meet up in the Boathouse or somewhere for a Chang or two.
Take care, DrMike.
