Help! Planning Patong

Hi everyone,

I will be in Patong with my gf next month for 4 days. Hoping for a little help planning:

1. Planning on 2 full day trips to Phi Phi Island and Phang Nga Bay. Any recommended tours? What is the best price I can get per person?

2. Places to eat? I would prefer the popular local spots rather than the touristy overpriced restaurants.

3. Any other must see or must do while in Phuket? Of course we will be walking around Bangla Rd. at night.

I recommend Phuket Sail Tours, they are more expensive but worthy every cent.

Phang Nga Bay is my favorite, I wont do Phi Phi again.

we like to eat tat the Tropica Hotel on the beach road 2 minutes from Bangla road.

there is lots of restaurnats on the roads just off from Bangla, all cuisine types and very cheap too. Another place is under the Jungceylon shopping centre lots of food places, very, very cheap - its like a food court on a shopping mall.

Have fun!

I like to eat at a little Thai place next to C&N hotel (up the small Soi) - basic Thai food at cheap prices:

Cocktails & Dreams is a must visit if you're on Bangla Road - #1 nightlife in all of Phuket, the chicks just love the cabaret and meeting the ladyboys!

Check out this map for attractions in Phuket: http://goo.gl/maps/LPy7r

...you can do a good selection of those on a tour or DIY by hiring a scooter / car

...the Dino Park Mini Golf in Karon is good fun for an hour or so one evening.
