    Cool Hello...new member here

    Hi all,

    I've just found this forum....
    I'm jetting off on my 4th trip to Phuket tonight.... (first since 2012) so I'm interested in seeing what's changed over the years.
    I'm doing a bit of resort hopping around Patong/Karon beach areas.....

    Main goal of this holiday is to just chill out...sit on a beach...drink beer....nothing terribly exciting

    Cheers,
    Nelson

    Welcome to the board.

    You're probably going to be surprised as a lot has changed. The beaches are much cleaner though, with much of the vendors and umbrellas gone(some like it that way, others don't). Not sure if it has stayed like that or not. I haven't been in over a year.

    Let us know what you reckon when you get there.
    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards.

    Welcome Nelson... look out for your sweet-mouthed namesake... and good to see you aren't obsessed with Thailand. Four trips since 2012 is plausible... 55

    How about updates on your trip for us.

    What you see as being different. Musings about changes and the feel of things now compared to previous visits.

    Cheers

    Add my well wishes to the others here. And, like others have said, stay in touch and give us a report from time to time. I leave for Thailand in Two weeks, but I'm not sure if I'll make it down south or not. I make Chiang Mai my second home for 5 months, and take trips out from there.

    And remember, you only get out of a forum what you put into it.

    Welcome here,

    Phuket or Koa Samui would be the destinations for a quiet beach holiday so you chose well.

    I like this forum as it is less aggressive than other forums.

    Enjoy your holiday Nelson.
    Cheers

    Scottie
