    OK Flight gets in late after 7.30 on 16th depending on how long it takes etc guessing won’t get there until after 10pm. But at least there for the next day to hang about.

    Wow, it really is all Aussies and Saffas – nothing wrong with that though ;o)

    I don’t have my papers yet but from what I understand we’ll be meeting on the evening of the 17th and all go out together that night…

    I’m also getting to Phuket in the evening on the 16th but am staying somewhere else – want to wake up on the beach :o)

    Bring on December already, looking forward to this trip now!

    Hey Guys, this trip is going to be insane. I’m one of the Saffas traveling with Just Piha. I was doing some research and it looks like it may be a wise idea to go for a Hepatitis A injection at a travel Dr before the trip. The reasoning behind this is because of the water over in Asia. The water is used to clean fruit/food etc as well as if you eat seefood you run the risk of contracting something without getting the injection. Just a thought. Just over 7 weeks to go. Yesss!

    yes i agree should get the following shots :

    Typhoid
    Malaria
    Hep A and B
    Rabies

    also been doing a bit of research just gonna say DONT HIRE JETSKIIS IN PHUKET huge scam there for thsoe who didnt know search “phuket jetski scam” plenty of sites

    You definately need a Hep A injection. And a Hep B just to be safe. Injections are so much fun >.<

    Bronwyn, I’m also staying elsewhere before and after. Its called the Bird Cage Patong. Cheap and ye walking distance to most stuff.
