My boyfriend and I (both mid 20s) have booked flights to Phuket for this June. We're primarily looking to stay in Khao Lak, probably at Apsara, but are wondering if 14 nights in this location would be too long? (Especially as this resort seems to be a 15 minute drive into the town centre)
I realise we are going in the low season and trips to the Similan islands do not run. Do you think there would be enough things for us to do there for a couple weeks? We want a mixture of relaxation, activity and a bit of nightlife.
I have been to Krabi recently, so don't necessarily want to go back there on this trip. But would it be worth maybe staying in Khao Lak for 10 nights and then 4 somewhere in Phuket? I assume the nightlife would be livelier in Phuket, but other than that, is it worth uprooting or should we just stay in Khao Lak for the whole duration?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
