hello looking at trying thailand for the first time next april/may, been looking at phuket, wondered what area is recommended? We are a couple mid to late 20's, looking for somewhere with nice restaurants in the evening and bars with entertainment on (singers/quiz's etc) not majorly into clubbing but want something with a bit of something goin on. in the day looking for nice beaches and a few day trips to do.
Also what kind of spending money would you recommend for 3 weeks not including accomadation, just for food and drinks a few trips and a few souveniers, and maybe the odd handbag lol,
any help would be greatly appreciated,
thanks in advance
