Phuket JBR from Trip

Overview

Quote:
A few days trip down to Phuket is the low season. Phuket was quiet but I think busier than it usually is in the low season.

Quick Tips:

Lots of bargains at hotels on Phuket during the low season, some very cheap deals.

Best Way To Get Around:

Quote:
The Graceland Resort in Patong Phuket is across the road from the beach in Patong, past the Club Andaman Resort. This is a modern hotel of quality. The rooms are nice but do go for the sea view rooms, they are worth the extra. The swimming pool is very nice, with a bar, and Graceland is just across the road from the beach. Walking distance to the shops, restaurants, and nightlife of Patong Beach on Phuket.

KOO at Kata Beach

Restaurant

Quote:
Koo is a small restaurant bar that is very popular, there is background music that is Jazz / Blues, relaxing. Cuisine is Thai / Asia fusion presented with style. Very nice service and a good choice of drinks, including excellent choice of wines and great cocktails. This is ideal for the 30-40 something age group. Stylish and trendy with good prices, that pleasant music and very trendy style.

Bang Tao Beach

Attraction | "Bangtao Beach"

Quote:
Bangtao beach, or as others may call it Bang Tao beach is north from Surin and Kamala Beach, both of which are north from Patong beach. Bangtao is a quiet beach area on Phuket, in the low season, Bangtao is very quiet indeed. We may stay there on our next visit but it is worth visiting Bangtao and the other quieter beaches on Phuket even just for the afternoon or perhaps for lunch.
