best area to stay in phuket?

hi, we're a family of four (2 adults, 1 teenager, 1 child) and we're visiting phuket in January after Bangkok.

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?

    Patong is ok.

    Also try given best answer when you ask a question, not like you done in the past. It's the right thing to do.

    I would say that Patong is probably not the best idea for your family in phuket! Kata is definitely from personal experience the best area for family's. Simply because Patong is full of drunks getting very loud all night and the sex trade is rife around there

    Hope that helps!

    Patong, Kata and Karon Beach is a good place to stay

    but Patong Area is have a lot of entertainment center and maybe noisy in some area

    Bura Sari Resort is a good resort is on south of Patong beach and not noisy

    for Phi Phi Island by Big Cruise i think its not make ur seasick or if u feel that u just walkout to upper desk and watch out to beautiful sea

    any information, feel free to contact me by email:


    i am travel agency and we also have office in Phuket too ;)

    Patong is the main place to be in Phuket but to me it has become very expensive and over crowded/

    For information on what to see and do go to - for good rates on hotels go to - also check out

    You will not get sea sick on ferry.

    If I were you check out - more scenic , less crowded around Ao Nang or surrounding area - easy access to Phi Phi and other Islands

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful time

    Patong is OK if you stay in a resort like the Holiday Inn (perfect for kids)- it seems like a quite island in this busy and also loud,crowded place. Another option is Karon or Kata (better beaches). Main areas don't really exist on Phuket since it depends what one is looking for.

    Sightseeing: the big Buddha (preferably on a sunny clear day), View point for a great sun set, a wat (buddhist temple),local markets etc.

    Patong Beach is Okay for you and your family. You can find cheap accommodation and not faraway from beach.
