Thanks for the info, much appreciated!
Hi Maz, there are lots of places around that hire them, its about $20.00AUD per week just ask around over there, last time we Hired one from a hotel on Rat u Thit road just opposite to the road that runs down to Horizon Beach Resort.
We also always take a tiny portable one we bought a few years ago in Bali for $100, no screen, just plug into tv and away you go, doesnt take up any room.
I was thinking about buying a cheap DVD player in Phuket. Is this the best option or is it just as cheap to buy one here beforehand.
You can buy one for not much more than 1000 Baht.
This sounds like a better option than renting. you can never have too may DVD players.
just buy one there, then chuck it away when u go back home
there cheap as chips,
, as the previous poster says--
£22-00 for us uk readers
make sure when u buy it or any thing electrical--for that matter, that they test it first !and you see it working --
if u buy something in thailand and its no good, they wont give u a refund ,especally us tourists-
they will offer to get it repaired
which is about as much good as a chocolate teapot,
to a holiday-maker( don,t buy a house btw)
Would somebody PLEASE tell me why you would rent, borrow or take a DVD player with you to a place like Phuket?!
I have heard so much of the beauty of the place, the serenity, no shortage of things to do, etc.
A DVD player?
Well, I dont know about everyone else Fabash, but when you have someone who is not a good sleeper and and theres rubbish on tv, it comes in handy, plus its good to look at our photos on tv.
