    I have been Phuket, Patong beach and I have to say it is a vast improvement on Pattaya beach. However the night life in Pattaya is better. I like them both but for different reasons. Maybe it’s time to head for Hua Hin?

    I have been to Phuket too last May 2009 and I might say it is the entertainment place to go in Thailand, though me and my friend had a limited time to roam the place.

    Have you been to Krabi, Thailand? Check out my blog site and you can read my Thailand Adventures.
