Going Phuket with my girlfriend this January. I love that place, but the last time I went there was a decade ago. Maybe less, but you get the point.
I'll be staying at the Patong Area.
1) General Advice Appreciated
2) Which places are cheap and good to dine. AMbience is secondary.
3) Should I bring my D100 ? I find photography and holidays dont mix very well, especially with the cumbersome SLRs. BUt of course, missing beautiful moments to capture would be even worse. I'm thinking of surviving with a Olympus Mju 28mmf2.8 P&S FIlm camera. I'll be going to alot of scenic spots, snorkling and stuff... lots of pictures to take man. I was thinking of d100 with my Kit lens, full stop.
4) ANy good massage palours , which DO NOT offer "extra services" as their main line of business ? CHeap and good as usual.
SPending 5 days there... cant wait. So far, I've decided on the Starlight by Hong Eco Kayak Tour by JOhn Gray, and a Day trip out to phiphi plus snorkling.
