Hi travelers.

i'm 24, female and would love to travel (backpacking). from Malaysia.

i'd plan to go to phuket thailand on the 20-23rd january 2012 or perhaps around that date. suppose to go with a friend but i need a back up plan in case she make a last minute cancellation. but if she did manage to tag along, it would be you + two of us, the girls. i dont plan to do much swimming (regardless u have my friend to accompany you since she loves beaches but i'll be there in case i change my mind). my intention would be more to visiting great places (since i love scenery!) and other fun activities perhaps visiting Fantasea/riding the Elephant etc. we plan to spent at least a night in the club (exceptional but knowing us, we most likely will :P).

i havent do the reservation on the hotels yet. plan to stay in patong.

no restrictions on following us the girls or me (if i travel alone). i don't like hassle much so in case we'll feel awkward later, feel free to just meet instead of doing everything together. i only want to have fun there traveling either alone, with a friend or say if we could get along, with you :)

let me know. cheers!

i'm not sure i'll be around by then because the original plan would be on the 20-23rd jan but i will let you know if there's any change of dates.

it would be me and a friend. or me, alone.

if heading to Patong,just get a taxi from the airport or bus terminal and ask for Bangla road...The taxi will drop you off right at the end of Bangla road,there you are pretty much spoilt for hostels/hotees and guest houses..Both times ive been ive just walked in off the street and got a room straight away,although be prepared to pay a little more than usual as everything is more expensive in phuket (patong)..usually around 7-800 baht a night minimum!!!
maybe better if you stay on Kata or Karon beach,its just a few miles along the coast from patong,more quiet (not as many russians) and abit cheaper and generally alot nicer...cost only 2-3 baht to get to patong if you wanna go clubbing...

hope this helps and happy travels!!

thank youuu Sammyy :)

it do helps. i need as many advice as i could get since this is my first time travelling to phuket and i dont understand thai language. so i'll make sure i'll always bring along small dictionary? lol perhaps they'll appreciate better if we know some little thai words or at least try to speak their language, and out of respect to their culture too.

i've plan to stay in patong since it is a walking distance to everywhere. can kata or karon beach supply that?

many thanks
