I am definitely going to Thailand in May, I have sorted the flights and the hotel in Bangkok, but I am unsure where to stay in Phuket, do not want to be in Patong, but I am looking at which other beaches, have heard Katan beach is nice as well as Kamala beach, could anyone recommend a beach to stay on, preferably one that has a good selection of restaurants and shopping as well as other general sites? Mostly going to Phuket to relax (before moving onto Phi Phi and other islands yet to be decided) so don't want crazy/busy, hence why I am avoiding Patong. Still would prefer a place which is relatively lively at night time with enough to keep us entertained. Also if you could recommend a good hotel to stay, but one that is reasonable in Price. Thanks!
