  1. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Well the statistics were wrong then. Weather in Phuket can sometimes be localized so I'm not sure that would be reflected in an overall report for the month. I was in Patong. I've just checked my hotel dates and I was there for 7 days, not 9! Of those days, going through my photos we only had clear skies and sun for 3 days. I know this as I did day trips on all 3 day. All the other days were overcast and heavy showers. I was there btw so that's how I know.

    Not meaning to call you a liar but I wasn't exaggerating when I said it rained a lot for over a week. A lot of people I've spoken to who live on the island say that was a freak month and they have never seen that before. Fingers cross it will be a bit more normal this time.

    Thank you Karen.

    Is it too soon to say how bad it will be in February?
  5. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Ah crap really? I’m all booked now for 3 weeks from the end of Jan and was really hoping for some regular dry season weather. I guess I’ll just wait to see the monthly TMD forecast and see if I need to change any plans.
  6. Heavy rain, cold weather predicted for weekend

    Is this the end of the rainy season lingering on?
  7. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Are there any weather experts here? I was just wondering what the recent La Niña arrival announcement means for weather in Thailand in the coming few months. I was in Thailand last January, and experienced some of the worst weather I’ve ever seen in Phuket. During the 12 days I was there it rained almost non stop for maybe 8 or 9 of them. I’ve been coming to Thailand around the same time of year for around 7 years now and sure you get the odd shower but I’d never seen anything like that.
  8. The referendum was advisory. It took an act of Parliament to take us into the EU and it will take an act of Parliament to take us out. Theresa May, may be bending to the will of the right wing Tories, but there are enough rebel MPs to support tabling an amendment to have a final say on the deal and veto it if necessary. We may leave the EU but it won't be the type of exit people are expecting or think they are getting.
  9. Yes but the 3rd option, and this is the most likely outcome is to not leave.
  10. I've never gone in deeper than waist height at Karon beach as the waves always look a lot more choppy there.
  11. Brexit isn't going to happen folks. There are enough MPs banding together to force through amendments which will mean Parliament votes on a final deal, and we all know the final deal is going to be crap for Britain.
  12. I've always liked the islands and limestone karsks. Obviously if you are not interested in that then that's an influence in your opinion.
  13. It's going to happen. It's just too much of a mess to comprehend. We will 'exit' but the deal will be such that we are still in only it takes a different name. Relax folks we are not going out completely.
  14. It's not boring at all. It's probably the most scenic province and island with plenty of things to do and see. The lack of replies is probably down to the fact that you are the 700th person to start a thread here asking about what to see. If it's really important to you then can I suggest you make an effort to do some research, and asking here what to see is not research. YouTube, instagram, google, trip advisor, lonely planet. There are literally tonnes of sources of information, all of which are free to access and at your fingertips so should you wish to take the time to look. Plus I always found it quite rewarding when I find something super cool and off the beaten track all because I made the effort to research. Or you could just rock up and visit one of the many tour booths along roads and take it from there.
  15. Hang nak hill - overhang

    Tempted to give this a go when I'm there in high season. I'm not an expert on geology or rocks but that overhang looks like it could give way at any time. Still though plenty of people have had a pic taken there so I'm wrestling with the idea of doing it. Anyone have up to date info on if it's still standing?
