Hello, my husband and i would like to be away for Christmas, and we really cant decided where to go! We are torn between krabi ( either the tubkaak or the amari vogue) or somewhere in the carribean ( possibly antigua) . we dont not purely want to sit on the beach all day, but would like to excursions and see things, would appreciate any help we could get! Thanks!

If you are considering out of the Tubkaak and Amari definitely go for the Tubkaak. We spent Christmas and New Year at this hotel 3 years ago and we have been back twice since. Fantastic you will not get better at that time of year. Cannot comment on the Carribean but I don;t think it will compare with the Tubkaak with the staff alone!!!

Hi Kerry,

Thailand has so much more to offer than the Carib.

Domestic flighst are so cheap, you could probably stay in a couple of different places in Thailand if you are going for 2 weeks??

We always go to Thailand at Xmas, the weather has always been fantastic, the food is to die for, the people are just lovely, the scenary and culture is fantastic.

Lots of trips on offer to other islands, elephant trekking, hot springs, temples......

If you are flying into Bangkok it maybe worthwhile having a couple of nights there. Great shopping, gorgeous temples, the grand palace, floating markets and loads more.

Our personal preference in BKK is to stay at the riverside, that way you're not stuck in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

A couple of things to note at Xmas, most hotels insist on compulsory gala dinners, which can be expensive, check with the hotel and book as soon as you can especially if you are after a particular room type at your chosen hotel. Xmas gets booked up very very quickly.
