Long time participant, first time poster. I've been planning a Phuket trip in mid September and I wanted to get some advise from you guys.
The three things that I want to do are:
- Phang Nga Bay
- Phi Phi Island
- Scuba Diving (Ideally at unique diving points such as Hin Daeng and Hin Muang where I can see some whale sharks)
How would I make this work logistically? I was thinking of the 5 days being there I don't know if I want to spend 3 full days (assuming flying in one day and flying out one day) on a boat. Sometimes scuba diving can be pretty exhausting, especially if you're taking a speed boat.
Should I just forget about diving at a more unique dive spot and dive at Phang Nga Bay or Phi Phi Island so I can have an extra day to do other stuff? I think Ocean Kayaking at Phang Nga Bay or in one of the Mangroves there seems like a lot of fun as well.
Let's start here. I haven't booked anything yet and I'm open to suggestions. Is there anything else that I should see or do? Which area should I stay considering that I will have to get to all these destinations?
Thanks fellow travelers!
