We have never been to Phuket and would love to stay somewhere that had the feel of luxury without the true 5 star price tag. I would like to stay somewhere that has a shuttle into Patong and all the bustle but was not located right in it. We will be taking out 12 year old and wondering if the beaches are nice to swim in i.e. are they warm like the south pacific islands?
Also we would like a week in Cambodia to visit Ankor Wat would it be best to go first and then finish in Phuket or Phuket then Cambodia? Does anyone know what airlines to use or logical travel itinerary?
Thanks in advance.
