Hi,

I am flying into Phuket with my girlfriend on 1.1.2006 in the morning. We really don't want to spend 2 weeks there. Last year, first trip to Thailand, we visited Chang Mai, BKK, other Northen Spots and Ko Tao/Ko Phangan...

Were supposed to go also to Phuket/Krabi/Phi Phi but had to cancel our plans since our flight there scheduled on 27.12.2004...(Tsunami).
so stayed longer in Ko tao...(total holiday 4 weeks)

This year we try again...or...

or...maybe we take a flight to singapore (2-3 days) and travel with bus/trains up the malasian west coast (malacca, KL, georgetown, Langkawi...total 10 days) and reach Phuket for 4 days of final sun...

WHAT DO YOU THINK?? IS it worth it vs. Phuket/Krabi/ Phi Phi?? WOULD YOU AGREE?? OR SHOULD WE JUST LEAVE IT FOR THE "NEXT" TIME??

we love the beach, but also like culture and are interested in discovering new places/faces..Budget is also a partial issue...

Thank you for your comments and/or alternative suggestions.

Diego

I would stick with Phuket, Krabi and Phi Phi. They really need the tourists since the tsunami, and Phi Phi is just amazing! We didn't make it to Krabi but it's meant to be lovely aswell. There are lots of little, hardly inhabited islands nearby aswell, which would be worth a look. I could have stayed on Phi Phi forever!

Singapore's good aswell, but I think your original plans would be best suited to this time. Singapore will still be there for your next trip, and they certainly don't need to tourism like Thailand does just now.

Hope this helps,

Rhiannon
