Thanks Peter, I will. I plan to head to Samui in March to see a friend and will detour through Khao Lak at that time.

Absolutely spot on mate,

So many really nice beaches around Phuket one can avoid the tourist shit no probs.

Thing is the mongering scum hang in Patong and the place is judged on these wasters.

Sex tourists are fookin filth eh.

Hey Scatman,


It is only you who finds solace in eating scat and debating the price of bugs with the village idiot up in phichit.

You retard Jeff.

Phuket would be one of the top 5 spots to live in Thailand. The prices are higher than Issan or Pattaya for good reason!

I'd choose the other four then- they are less expensive, more relaxed, less crowded, and the people are nicer.

Having only visited phuket once on a whim, I have to say I wouldn't go back although Posters have convinced me that I saw the worst of it staying around Patong. Reminded me of a corrupt Thai style Surfers Paradise, which I rarely go to these days unless it's to take friends on holiday from Victoria. I remember nearly falling over at the taxi fare from the airport to Patong. I remember remarking to my teerak at the time it didn't feel like Thailand. Sounds a pity I did not find the "better" parts of Phuket. Maybe I would have a different opinion, but never say never. Posters may have induced me to take another look one day. But honestly I absolutely hated Patong.

Phuket's a small province, and can cater to both domestic and foreign tourists, as well as a large population of expats. I know of very few expats who actually live in the tourist enclaves, and those that do it's typically because of work or business commitments.

There are large parts of the island that are virtually tourist and traffic free, with outstanding views that are right up there with anything else in Thailand. Couple that with a large selection of retail outlets, restaurants that serve excellent Thai and Western food at reasonable prices (the 30 baht chicken and rice on the side of the road is never far away also). Good selection of hospitals, international airport, an immigration office that seems to function in as consistent and correct manner as is possible in LOS.

A couple of photos from my walk around Bang Wad reservoir at 7 a.m. this morning:

^ Nice, that 30 bht chicken & rice. Not a bad view either. I'm sure there are things about Phuket I could get to like more, even appreciate- but it would take a local to show me.

Patong is the tourist centre. Most people would choose another spot to live.

St Kilda is shit too.

Depends what you like doing. There are friendly people in any town or city. I found the locals in Phuket Town no more unfriendly than locals in Chiang Mai or Bangkok.

I have found the locals in Hua Hin and Pattaya to be worse and those places are loaded with expats.

I've lived on Phuket for twenty years and wouldn't live anywhere else in Thailand. I lived in Bangkok for 6 months and had to take a 40 minute taxi ride from Sathorn to some dingy dungeon of a second hand bookstore. No over the counter drugs. No bakeries within spitting distance, along with every type of non Thai food you could ever want when you're tired of Gaeng Som (which reminds me, can't get that in Bangkok). Many Western style quality clothes outlets reasonably priced without an elephant print in sight. Access to many islands. Better than bugsnbeetles Issan or the biggest mall in the world Bangkok. Downside? Too many cheating farang on the run and no public transport.
