Hi guys!

I would like have your advice. I go to Phuket in December and I saw different trips to visit some island. I don't which one I can choose... Anyone know or get experience with Siimba or SweetDreamers? And do you know a good hotel in karon with afordable price, because I am not sure which one take...
Thanks in advance!

My advice is to not go to Phuket. Chock full of Europeans on 2-4 week holidays. They can fly right into Phuket and stay in their packaged hotels. Crowded, expensive, hectic, it would not be my first choice for beach time. There are many islands close to Phuket/Krabi that are cheaper and less crowded. Koh Phi Phi is pretty, but also too popular for its own good. Take a look at Koh Jum, Koh Lanta, Koh Lipe further south.

Here is a place in Karon that I found under 'accommodation' top of this page. Good luck with your planning.

I agree with Mike that there are much nicer places in Thailand to go to.

If you do choose Phuket, avoid Patong which is the main strip, and instead head to Hat Karon which is much more pleasant. I stayed at Divers Inn, as mentioned my Mike above.
