I am planning my honeymoon to Thailand in mid Jan 2010.I will be taking a 2-3 night stop at Phuket and would request your advise on the following:
1. Which beach to stay at ? The popular ones that I know of are Patong and Karon. Patong being where all the noise and party is at. But I think I would prefer a beach like Karon - which I believe is comparatively quiet and very near to Patong too ??
2. Which resorts to stay at for my honeymoon. I like places that are modern and would like a property that is situated right on the beach itself. I would prefer a private villa with a plunge pool on the beach. My budget is around 5500 THB per night, which can be stretched a bit. Any suggestions on any modern fancy resorts/villas on the beach ??
3. Also what is the way to travel from Koh Samui to Phuket. Domestic airlines etc. Where will I get the lowest fares ??
I know there are loads of forums on all this in here, but the more I read the more I am getting confused, so some fresh advise would be much appreciated.
