Me and my boyfriend are just back from our very first visit to Phuket and are now well and truly in the depths of the post-holiday blues! Flew to Phuket via Bangkok from London Heathrow with Thai Airways. No complaints about the service although they do use their older planes on this route with no seat back entertainment which seems strange for an 11 hour flight. We stayed at Indigo Pearl @ Nai Yang beach for 14 nights in a Pearl bedroom and we absolutely loved this resort. We weren't...More

Phuket Thai Cookery School vs other options (3 Replies)
Hello all, It will be my first time in Phuket in February, and I'm arriving Thursday afternoon around 12pm and flying out Tuesday afternoon at about 5pm, so just a short trip. One day is planned for sailing with Captain Mark and perhaps a half day visiting Kok Chang elephants? I'm interested in doing a cooking class of some sort and have read a great review of Phuket Thai Cookery School (from Pete), but was wondering how long the course was - specifically the one that takes you to the...More

Hi Supers 2 Our course they picked us up at the hotel at 8am & we got back about 3.30 - 4pm. We did the course which went to the market, the others may be shorter. So plenty of time to do things afterwards, but probably not eating!!! We didn't bother about dinner that night & went & did some shopping & had a few drinks in Patong. On of the things we liked about this course besides the cooking was we got to see areas around Phuket that we wouldn't have otherwise gone to eg...More

Just as a follow up - they just informed me that the Patong location is not on a beach but in a hotel. Do you still think it's worth it? I know the cooking and food is the main draw, but doing it on a beach would have been nice!
