Is it advisable to make reservations for a dorm or a guesthouse in Phuket Town or Kamala (staying both places) week between Christmas and New Year's ? It would seem so, as it is the high season. But, one guidebook I read said not to reserve at guesthouses since each room is different and should be inspected, as they will not give refunds. Same book discouraged giving credit card online to hold room or for deposit. I do not want to spend my time wandering around looking for a vacancy. Any advice?
