Our first visit to Thailand and Phuket which will also be our honeymoon bit of our holiday. Our itinerary is 3 days Bangkok, 4 days Chiang Mai, then it can be upto 5 days in Phuket before we go back to Bangkok.
Not sure where to stay Phuket, Karon or Kata, while we are here we plan to do Phang Nga and Phi Phi, I know the wife wants this to be our relaxing bit as we do have quite a busy schedule early on in our holiday so I would like to find a nice hotel close to the beach for her as a surprise however my budget is about £50 a night at the moment but may stretch a bit further, we will be in Phuket on 17th to 21 or 22 March.
Basically we want to be not to close to nightlife but also not miles away, close to beach and within reach of restaurants as I have read there is lots of nice eateries in Karon and Kata. I was advised to stay in Karon as the beach is supposed to be beautiful?? but I expexct most beaches are in Thailand.
Advice appreciated with thanks :)
