I am flying to Phuket in 1 week (24th Feb 2008) with my wife. We are people who don't book ahead and simply go for it!! However we were wondering if someone out there in Cyberspace could suggest a quiet beach where we can eat well, pay for cheap accommodation, get a few messages and just relax. (I suppose Patong is out)
We are going for over 2 weeks and the truth is, it doesn't really matter where we go as we enjoy everything we do, but it would be nice to get some heads up. We may take a few trips to surrounding Islands (could do with some advise there as well).
Would appreciate any help. Regards from Melbourne Australia.
P.S. If you could add some prices that would help. i.e cost of taxi to beach, hotel/hut prices etc..
