Phuket in July/August = Resorts?
Have read a fair amount but would appreciate some up to date info on where to stay while there for 5 days. My buddy and I are both experienced divers and will go out every day when weather allows.
We would also like to take in the nightlife and have access to great restaurants and bars.
I realize its a long car ride each day but is Patong the place to stay? If so, or not, I'd appreciate recommendations on resorts/operators...really don't want to deal with a wholesaler...I want to dive with the shop that owns the boat. . Maybe we should stay in Kata and cab it into town 1-2 nights?
