Bali or Phuket ?

Postby ISparkyI » Wed Oct 17, 2007 11:40 pm

Hey all

Am organising a holday towards February next year or even early March and was wondering if anyone has been to the above locations . .

Just wanna be able to go somewhere for a week and chill out . .

I'll be wanting to Dive, Jet Ski, Go Karts and just relax while meeting some other tourists and having a couple of quiet beers.

Which would you prefer if you have been to both ?

I've never been to either but I would Bali, your going at a good time so you wouldnt run into any striff, a friend of mine just come back from Bali & they loved it & the security is pretty tight so you wouldn't have a problem

I haven't been to either (have been to other parts of Thailand though & will never ever go to Indonesia) but have heard from friends who recently visited Phuket that they were disappointed... but nearby Krabi is magnificent :)

Yeah, Koh Tao - I stayed there for a few nights. The beaches weren't as great as I had hoped. Everytime I went snorkelling, my feet got attacked by plastic bags :roll: which was rather disconcerting.

I loved Haat Rin beach on Koh Phangnam - had a lot of fun in the water. Stayed there for about 4 nights. I got Typhus from Koh Phangnam from the dirty, ultra cheap accommodation :(

Spent a week or 8 nights in Koh Samui and loved it! We stayed at Lamai beach which is a little quieter and south of Chaweng Beach, the real hotspot on Koh Samui. Good times!
