day trip from phuket with driver

hi, we are returning to phuket for 5 nights in September. I have hired a driver for a day but since we did all the touristy stuff last time we thought we might take a day trip perhaps off the "island". was wondering if anyone might have some suggestions on where to go. we are looking for child friendly destinations. we need to get from patong and back in a day as our accomodation is already paid for.

thanks heaps Shell

Hey Bull family, could you define what stuff you have already seen?

I am not sure if the cashew nut factory is touristy but it is worth a visit.

Maybe check out a floating restaurant while you are out and about.... let us know what you have done already and we will be able to tell you what you have missed.

Check out Cathy and Gary's travel pages they have a lot of things to do...that are perhaps not in the book

also Khao Sok is not to far...

Also Jamie Monk has a blog and does a lot of things with his family.
