Hey Guys,

My BF and I have booked to fly from Phuket to KL on 26th December as part of our SE Asia leg of our RTW trip. We thought Phuket would be a great place to treat ourselves for Christmas. Trouble is, with more research, Phuket sounds a horrible place to stay at Christmas!!

Our plan was to do Phi Phi and end up in Phuket for the 2 days before our Christmas Eve and Day. Does anyone know of anywhere we can stay that is close enough to Phuket airport that will be nice for Christmas?? Our flight is at 1330 so we have the morning to get to the airport. By nice I don't mean luxurious...just good people and good times and a nice beach, on a backpacker budget!!

Kerri x

Just stay for an extra day on Phi Phi as it is the most gorgeous island. You will not like Phuket after being on Phi Phi so stay as long as you can on Phi Phi.

Yea, i agreed with bwiiian.
Phi Phi Island is much more better than Phuket.
I am sure you will fall in love with Phi Phi Island than Phuket.
Phuket is a little bit polluted by tourists. Quite dirty though.;)
