Phuket gets a bad rap as being overrun with Aussie spring break crowd but

as long as you avoid Patong, basically, you'd never know that's the reputation of the area. There's a resort we love in the northern part of the island, though for a family of six, it'd be outrageously expensive unless everyone is comfortable in a single king bed.

Honestly can't answer your questions as for me the reason to be halfway around the world is so that nobody can bother me, so I pretty much arrive and try my best to stay within a 50 yard radius for a couple weeks--breakfast and the beach is about as far as I go from the room. We've been to Thailand 4 or 5 times but never really did the excursion stuff. We did do Bangkok once, though cheap massages and custom suits is really what I remember more than any specific tourist sites--but again we're not really sightseers, so 🤷🏻‍♂️. Magnifique Tailor in Phuket is actually great, too. They're in Patong, but if you commit to buying a couple suits, they'll come to you anywhere on the island.

Enjoy the trip!
