Second posting in a matter of minutes. So we are planning on going to Phuket in September and looking for a relaxing and relatively quiet 10 days. We have heard that Patong beach is loud 24/7 and we thought of the Holiday Inn to stay at. Is this a "loud" area where the hotel is situated or far enough away from the noise to chill?
Karon beach has been suggested as a quieter place to stay and I would appreciate thoughts on the best beach to chill. Also comments if possible on the Andaman Seeview Karon, compared with the Holiday Inn Patong?
