I've decided (after asking for advice on here - thanks) to book the holiday myself and not use a travel agent. We're going to Phuket for a couple of nights then onto The Sands and finally to the Marriott for five nights. I'm looking at booking the Khao Lak part of the holiday through Booking.com and Phuket through Travel Republic (a lot cheaper than Booking for the hotel we want.) So my questions are - do you think using the two agents is ok, shall I book the flights first (I've seen a Thai Airways flight for £600 - is this an ok price?) and finally, we're going mid February, shall I wait to book or do it now?
Sorry to ask so many questions - but any responses will be gratefully appreciated.
