My partner and I will be in Phuket from the 22nd of March 2010 till the 28th of March. We are a young couple, looking to relax but we don't want to be too far away from the nightlife in case we want to check it out. We are roughly looking at spending $100 - $120AUD per night. Can anyone reccommend any good hotels?
The only place we have in mind at the moment is the Patong Merlin Hotel.
Also, after Phuket we are off to Koh Samui for 4 nights. From what we have heard Phuket can be pretty insane. Would it better to cut our trip in Phuket a little short and spend more days in Koh Samui? This will be our first time in Thailand so any advice or reccommendations would be great!
