At last, I have booked a holiday to Thailand Managed to fine somewhere to keep everyone happy Thanks to everyone that helped me during my search.
Are there many 'western type' restaurants there?
spent a day at the Amari with friends who were staying there but this was a while ago (15 years?). Its just a little outside Patong (which is quite a plus point), a walk or short tuk-tuk ride away. Pleasant grounds with a small beach area and jetty access to the sea and some good snorkelling.
The hotel will provide western eating options and there are hundreds of restaurants in Patong for you to choose from.
I have decided the next time we go to Thailand we shall go alone so that we can be flexible to see more.It sounds as if you are very familiar with Thailand.
Thank you for all your help
P. S. First time travelling with Thai Airways, are they good? Any tips i.e. Better seats for longer legs etc...
The Amari is quite a private resort, so you feel like you are away from Patong even though really it is quite close by.
Heading out either at New Year or February\March
Now that you have booked you can phone Thai Airways and pre book your seats at no cost. I have done this with my flights for March 08. Only thing is you cannot book exit seats they are only available when you get to the airport but shouldn't need them with Thai. By the way Thai are excellent to fly with, the service is second to none. Brilliant Airline.
You can view the seat config, follow menu flying with Thai on their website (thaiairways.co.uk)and it will show you their fleet. You will have to phone them to pre book on 0870-606 0911 make sure you have your booking reference. but I agree with ShirleyV if you can get them go for the 2 seats together at the back of the plane, and I think it is rows 68 A and B are the best seats as the row of 3 in front they keep for a stretcher so providing nobody becomes extremely ill the seats in front will be unoccupied.
As one of our group is a tad large, I was trying to find the best option for him but it seems the rest of the seating is all the same. Thai air even suggest booking an extra seat for obese travellers I'm sure he will be fine, not sure about the internal flight from Bangkok to Phuket though. Are the internal flight planes smaller?
