I'm headed to phucket tomorrow (5th) for a couple days. i hear there is a great restaurant called Preeda's that I have to find. Then I'm trying to figure out where to go next. Koh Phi Phi? Krabi? Anyone have any suggestions or want to meet up for drinks? firstname.lastname@example.org is my email. Thanks for any info
There is a good restaurent in Phucket town near the main roundabout (it has got some kind of bulding or something on it) it is called Salvatores, it is an Italian restaurant which is spot on. It is owned by a short fat italian guy called Salvatore. He has also opened one in Patong beach area, but I have not been there.
I tried to figure out where you want to go. It's Phuket, not Phucket.
Phuket is Thailand's most popular island, but I myself prefer beaches that have clear blue water like Ko (island) Phi Phi and Ko Similan. Phi Phi is packed with tourists, but the water is super clear and light blue with schools of fish swimming right beside you while you're snorkeling. Similan is the finest paradise for diving. The water is so out of this world. If you want fun nightlife, Ko Samui is a great idea. The water there, if you go to the right beaches, is beautiful.
You asked about dining in Phuket. You'll find your answer here: www.phuket.com/dining/
Sorry, I am a Bangkok native. I don't know any restaurants there.
