What to do for 10 days with pregnant wife in patong

Hello my wife and I hare headed to Patong beach, Phuket for a ‘baby moon’, (she is 6 months pregnant and is desperate for some hot weather, warm water and sunny days).

As we will be there from 23rd march until April, staying up on the hill over looking Patong at Baan Yee Din resort I would greatly appreciate any advice you can give about:

Massage & day spa

Yoga

Cooking classes

Diving in around Phuket and Phi Phi Don

Shopping

Markets:

Tailor:

Hotel on Phi Phi for 1-2 nights. Budget = US$200pn

Any suggestions of what to do for 10 nights/day...?

Thanks!

Yep sorry I am LMAO as well!!! Not that any of this is any help to you.

I suggesr basically that you relax and chill out while you still can.

With your wife been Pregnant, you will need to take ferry the Phi Phi is thats what you want to do.

Plenty of nice places to visit for day trips with a driver, foot massages , pedicures, all things indulgent I think

You might be able to do one of the SAIL tours that Phuket Sail Tours runs. Speedboats are out the the sail might be good.

Speed boats to Phi Phi are not a good idea for pregnant people, although we are amazed at the number of pregnant people who shop around trying to find a speed boat company that will take them to Phi Phi.

A speed boat to Phang Nga Bay is not such a bad idea if the weather is calm, as it is in sheltered waters. If you do choose this sit at the back of the boat where there is very little movement. Think carefully about this.

Wouldn't recommend getting on an elephant. Elephant might not like it either.

Aquarium at Ao Markham.

Gibbon rehab centre.

All the best,

Mark.

Phuket has nice temples which both of you can visit. Besides you can also go to Chalong Bay, there is a pier bridge which is really beautiful in the evening. The seafood is also very well known there as well. You can check out Kan Eang which serves good food.

Yeh I can vouch for a day with Captain Mark while you are there, although you are there now, so this might be a bit late. Nice and cruisy and not bumpy out on the water like you would get in the speed boats, and you will be taken out to some remote islands. See if you can get on a trip with him. Good luck.......

Hello everyone and thanks for the feedback.

Yes our obstetrician has confirmed its fine to travel and airline are aware that my wife is 6 months pregnant (at time of travel), we have requested certain seats and our insurance company is also aware and we have appropriate cover. And we are certainly focused on the dehydration issue of flying, so thanks all for the concern.

Our resort has 3 pools so, patong beach swimming wont be happening. However while im doing some diving she thinks she will do a little snorkeling so were after any suggestions of reputable diving shops for a couple of boat dives (depending boat type and weather conditions)

Regarding tailors I've been told:

R.K. Fashions

Magnifique Tailor Phuket

Instyle Fashion Bespoke Tailors

Arent bad and that they rival HK/SG, so any realistic feedback/recommendations would be good...

Im looking to get any recommendations from anyone about where to do:

Massage & day spa

Yoga

Cooking classes

Diving in around Phuket and Phi Phi Don

Shopping

Markets:

Tailor:

Hotel on Phi Phi for 1-2 nights. Budget = US$200pn

Any suggestions of what to do for 10 nights/day, my wife is active & while she wants to chill out she also wants to do some of the above,if she is not able to do them, I will so any ideas or recommendations would be really helpful

thanks!
