I'm thinking of traveling to Phuket next January and I'm looking for a bit of advice on which part/side is best to stay on. We will be going for around 6 days so any advice from residents and from those who have been before will be appreciated.

i thought this was a challenge topic, it seems to be the way Langdon is choosing these topics lately.

I'll be there in August. It's a family trip so my experience might be limited. I was there two years ago but again did not explore much and still loved it. Got my scuba diving certificate

Never been there, after a few days in Bangkok, I thought about it, but said... Phuket!

Can't add anything useful, other than a bump, and the lame humor ;-)

You could send email to some of the hotels on either side. I went in August last year and was staying at the Manathai Hotel, was great. The beach had to many waves for actual swimming, which means we were on the 'wrong' side. But we ended up going to the smaller islands for snorkeling which made up for it. Also, with the hotel we stayed at, it was a 3 minutes walk to the beach and perfect in every way. I want to go back.

Sometimes you just have to say, "Phuket!"

If we did decide on a hotel on one of the islands how accessible are they?

if not it looks like the "right" side of Phuket by all the islands is "better" than the left side?

I knew that was the word in the last line of the "Man from Nantucket" limerick!

Yeah, +1 for Koh Samui. I was there about 15 years ago, so hopefully it hasn't changed much.
