Hello Jedmonds:)

By a beach hut, I presume u mean those 4 Euro per night wooden huts, with bathroom, balcony and double bed.
If so, u cant book these on the internet. Those on the internet are the more expensive bungalows. Dont book by phone or pay a deposit. Bookings are rarely honoured and deposits usually go missing. Just show up, and have an alternative plan, in case u dont get what u want.

U could stay at Sarisas place, or the group of huts to the right of these. They are on Ao Cholok Lam beach, on the north coast of Koh Pha Ngan.

If u would prefer to stay in the rain forest, u could stay at Garden Huts, in Khao Sok.

Jennifer,
I have a few suggestions that are in the budget price range. It is true that most of the basic beach huts do not have a website. However, some do. Both Koh Jum and Koh Lanta still have some of those wooden beach bungalows that you have seen in travel photos. Try; kohjum.com, kohlanta.com & kohjumonline.com. Bo Daeng Bungalows & Joy Bungalows on Koh Jum looks like what you have in mind. About $10/night.

If you do not want to book online, I would get myself to Krabi town and go into any travel shop. Let them know your budget and what you are looking for. They have dozens of choices in all price ranges. Take a look at the pictures and decide what is a good fit for you. Good Luck.

Try Mai Pen Rai bungalows, Than Sadet, Koh Pha Ngan. They have some pretty amazing bungalows at a reasonable price. The beach is quiet and great if you want to relax (but not if you want to party all night - they turn the generator off at 11pm!!). Here is the link http://thansadet.com - you can book online.

Hi Jedmonds (and all that have replied)

My girlfriend and I are also trying to sort out accommodation around Phuket/Krabi for Christmas too. We're aiming for Phuket primarily, as our flight to KL leaves from Phuket on the 26th Dec, so don't want to be too far away!

Can anyone recommend anywhere? Is it really really busy at this time of the year? I presume that its a bit risky just 'booking when you get there' at that time of the year!

Hello Darren:)

Are u looking for budget places, to stay?
If so, u can stay in Phukett town.
It is a nice little town, and u can get easily to the beaches, by getting the busses from the market.

Right beside the market is a backpackers hostel.
The website is
www.phuketbackpacker.com

Or else u could stay in Pengman, on Th Phang Nga.
It is just a 5 minute walk to the market, where u can catch the busses to the beach.
It is very basic and many of the rooms dont have windows, but it is spotlessly clean.
Double rooms cost 140 Bahts per night.

U cant prebook Pengman. I am not sure about the hostel. But I dont see why Christmas would be busier than any other time, during the tourist season(Nov-Feb approximately) in Thailand.

We are looking for somewhere nice but not too pricing, on the beach too, any ideas?

We are doing hostels and cheap everywhere else, for christmas we would like something just a little more special without breaking the bank if you see what i mean!

What amount of Thai baht do you consider is a "not to pricy" room cost per night? What does "not to pricey" mean to you?
