I have booked to fly to Phuket in May 2014 with hubby and two kids aged 12 & 14. I am now aware that this is the wet season so wondering is there anywhere where the beaches may still be ok for swimming. Not too keen on Patong beach as would prefer somewhere a bit less "seedy" but where we are able to enjoy nice restaurants, a bit of shopping/sight seeing.
I was looking at Khao Lak but I am now not sure if this is the right time of year to go. Unfortunately I cannot change flights.
I am grateful for any suggestions, thanks.
