    Been to Phuket twice now, first time was in May 2003, then back at Christmas 2007. What a great holiday spot! It provides for everybody: if your looking for amicable Thai people there is plenty of them, if you want better off thai food there is quite a little and nightlife is astonishing. If you want a low-budget vacation, you can have it – if you need a pricey vacation, you can have it also. My friend is really in love with the place and has just bought into a resort over there. My kids love it as well. What a fantastic place to celebrate New Year!
