    Dive holiday travel advice reqd

    Looking for a spot of advice from all you seasoned LOS chaps

    Ive got 2 weeks in Phuket booked for mid feb

    First week with a non diving mate and end of second week meeting another pal and doing the Hin Daeng liveaboard.

    I cant do Patong for 10 days or i will die, so was thinking of Samui after a few nights but now considering Phi Phi as my freind only has 1 week.

    Where to stay in Phi Phi, any dive recomendations, remember that the liveaboard stops there for 1 day, nightlife?

    Or anywhere else that is easily accesable from Patong and will get me out of that madhouse for a few days?

    An evening at Surin beach would be nice?

    Cheers

    I like Kata, it's far slower and more relaxed than Patong. I don't really care for Phi Phi myself but different folks etc. A lot of the guys seem to like Kamala as well which is a decent alternative.

    I don't care for the backpacker scene, all that 'Bucket of Joy' drinking and right-on kids wearing tie-died floaty clothes and 'finding themselves' whilst looking down their noses at any bloke who has a Thai woman with him.

    It does feel a bit claustrophobic to me as well.
    LivinLOS, Dkdude and soupdragon like this.

    Kata for me, laid back vibe with nice beaches and good food options.
