Hi Trip Advisors,
I will be coming along with my wife and child (3yrs old) to Phuket for 3- 4 nights during the 2nd half of Oct.. Am confused whether we should stay in Karon or Kata - Both look very similar. We are looking for a place which has a good beach and has decent dining/ drinking / shopping options close by.Plan to stay away from patong and travel there for a evening.
Am looking at Avista Phuket Resort & Spa / Kathathani Beach Resort in Kata. In karon the shortlisted options are - Mandarava Resort/ Pacific Club resort or the Movenpick. The budget per night is about 125 USD. Is there an alternate hotel we should be looking at?
We will also be going to Krabi and wanted to check if one should do the Phi Phi island tour from Phuket or Krabi.
Thanks a bunch...
