We had a last minute holiday to Phuket for a few days, although low season with the airfares being cheap and also getting a good cheap hotel deal it was worth the trip. There was some rain at times but not too bad and we knew to expect that at this time of year. Phuket was not very busy and we had a relaxing time, we fley with Air Asia, normaly we prefer Nok Air but the Air Asia flights were more conventient.
When Phuket is busy we prefer to stay at the quiter beaches on Phuket but as it was low season we decided to stay in Patong Beach, we stayed at the Burasari Resort Patong Beach which was a bargain at just THB 1,900 including breakfast, that was less than half the higher season price and a very cheap deal for Patong Beach Hotels and it was fine. The Burasari resort in Patong is close to everything so it was easy to walk, better than taking a tuk tuk ! Our room at the Burasari was in the Oasis Wing, it was a very cheap rate. We liked the location of the Burasari, we went to the new shopping mall in Patong which is called Jungceylon, we did not do so much shopping. Restaurant prices we were used to as we know Phuket, we had some OK meals. Although Patong was quiet there were a lot of tourists in the bar areas on Soi Bangla. We went to Surin beach one day which is one of our favorites if we go in the High Season and had a drink at the Manathai where we have stayed before, there were also some good deals but in the rainy season we did not want to have to travel to and from Patong Beach at night.
