Phuket in Dec - Should we pre book our tours?

We are traveling to Phuket in December and are wondering if we should prebook our tours from the US. We heard it is better to wait until we there since we probably could get better deals, however, we're worried they will be full. Please help! Thanks a bunch!!!

Hi Yami,

We will be there in Dec to what dates will you be there??? You dont need to pre book the tours because there are heps of diffrent companys plus there know how bussy they are going to be and there make sure they can cover it.....

Any more questions just ask.

Cheers

Thank you Gaz! My boyfriend and I will be there Dec 11 - 15th. We are having a difficult time choosing, which hotel to stay at and what beach to stay. We like the nightlife options in Patong, but we are finding that the prices of hotels are quite expensive ($250 and above per night). We would like to stay at a nice hotel (preferrably on the beach). We liked Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort because we figured it was in Patong, and according to reviews, it has a nice private beach. The only downside is that it turns out to be expensive for 4 nights (around $1200 US dollars). We want a hotel with similar qualities, maybe a little less expensive. Any suggestions?

Another option is staying in Karon Beach or Kata beach. Do you think it'll be hard booking tour's from here or should we just stay in Patong to avoid having problems booking tours once we are there? In other words, do tours like sea kayaking and snorkeling tours to James Bond Island or Phi Phi Island leave from Karon Beach or Kata Beach or do they solely leave from Patong Beach?

All, thank you so much for your replies!!! =)

You will have no problems booking tours wherever you stay.Phuket is not short of tailors,massage joints or travel agents.If you want to book a specific tour,i.e.John Gray's Sea Canoe trip,book in advance as you are travelling in high season.

Hi Yami,

I think you might be better staying in Patong only for the fact that if you like night life then its the place to be.... have a look at this site for accomadtion www.hotelclub.com

You will not have trouble finding tours at other beachers but you will have more options is patong and more bargening power...

When you are thinking of a place to stay just remember that you realy only sleep in you hotel, if the place you are staying doesnt have a nice pool or other things like that then you can just walk into any other resort and use there facilities.

You will need to book ASAP because you will even now find it hard to find some where to stay....

Any more questions just ask.

Cheers

Gaz :)
