we're just wondering where is the best place to stay in phuket? We know not much about the place so where is an area where it is close to most of the main tourist sites/attractions and the 'main' area where most people stay. We so far have narrowed down to two hotels - club andaman and burasari resort. is patong the 'main' and best place to stay?

We don't want to be far away from the main areas, but also don't want it too noisy/loud (can you hear the noise from inside the hotel?).

anyway, also things to do would be great! as well as does the phi phi island ferry make you seasick?

thanks!!
