    New member - sort of ex-PI

    Hi everyone,

    I joined Phuket info several months back because I'm spending 6 weeks in Phuket later this year (very excited, first visit since an extended stay in Kamala Beach around ten years ago).

    Everyone on PI gave me loads of great advice about for example, places to stay in Kamala (I originally stayed at 'The Cub' ten years back) but now all that good advice has disappeared into cyberspace.

    So, back to square one - any recommendations for good GF accommodation in Kamala?
    Cheers,
    Bludger

    Wttb, Bludger! Are you looking for bit of the ol "in-out, in-out?" 55
    Hopefully not for a bit of "ultra-violence"...

    Hahahaha - even more of a bludger than a bar owner Zablive - I work for local government in Oz

    A bit of of the ol "in-out, in-out" with a tasty young Devotchka wouldn't go amiss slampay!

    The original definition - hence the bar question 555!

    Hey I remember that avatar.

    After ten years, you're gonna want to bludge for 6 weeks straight mate. Should be a good trip report. What month you heading there?

    And welcome to TD.

    Thanks Bacon - I'll be landing on the 30th October mate. Although I should point out although it's my first trip to Phuket in ten years, since then I've probably spent two of the last ten years in Pattaya. I just got lazy, and kept going back to Pattaya, even though I knew deep down that the time I spent in Phuket ten years ago was without a shadow of a doubt the best time I ever had in Thailand.

    Well I never knew that's where the word 'bludger' came from Zablive - you learn something everyday!

    wttb Bludger ... must admit, I didn't know the meaning of that word ...never even heard of it before.

    I noticed a *lot* of changes in Patong Beach in just 5 years, so you won't recognise the place after 10 years away. I would advise that you find something brown eyed/black haired to act as a guide until you get your bearings.

    Thanks for the tip Meese - I'll probably stay a few nights in Patong at some point so will check out 'White Patong'. You're right, no tips for Kamala accommodation yet - maybe I'll try another section of the forum.

    Yeah I'm sure it's changed a lot, and another thing is last time I was over there was just before the tsunami. Not sure how much rebuilding went on around Kamala/Patong after that, probably quite a bit I would imagine. Had a bit of a GFE with a girl who used to do massage on the beach at Kamala - I'd like to find out if she was OK, she was a lovely girl. No GFE this time around though, I've learnt my lesson. The minute you've got a Thai girl in tow, that's when you see the girl of your dreams at every turn - sod's law Very frustrating, I'm sure you've all been there

    Joining this forum and planning my forthcoming Phuket trip got me to thinking a lot about my first trip to Phuket in 2003. As I've got a very good memory for detail, I reckon I could have a pretty good crack at a retrospective trip report - it was a hell of a trip and I was a complete newbie at the time, so a very steep learning curve. I have plenty of photos to jog my memory although as I did not have a digital camera at the time, someone would have to tell me the best way to get them scanned and onto the trip report. Anyone interested? If so, I'll get cracking on it. Cheers, Bludge
