Travelling to Thailand with my wife and 18 month old son for three weeks in November this year, and Phuket is definitely a place we will be staying. I've narrowed it down to Kata as there seems to be a bit going on at night, without being as lively as Patong. However, not far from Patong (and Karon!).
Has anyone stayed here? Is it suitable for a young family? All reviews seem positive for families.
I personally would prefer a beach resort (actually on the beach), however my wife would prefer to stay in a Tsunami safe hotel. Understandably.
This seems to be a Tsunami safe hotel. I know it's very unlikely but safety is paramount since we'll be travelling with our son.
Before I book, can anyone confirm what is close by;
Shops / markets / bazaars
Anything else worth mentioning?
The plan is to visit both Karon and Patong while we're in Phuket, however, based on reviews I think Kata would be a good place to stay.
