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.

Hi,

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.

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

BUT

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.
