We are a young couple coming down towards the end of December around NYE (leaving on NYE). I'm not sure where to stay exactly. We're in our mid 20s, I would like a room with a private pool if possible, great location where we can walk to multiple restaurants/bars.
Also, I know we would like to go to Phi Phi Island and Phang Nga Bay. We're going on a cruise that stops in Phuket during our 3 week vacation and not sure which one to do on the cruise day, and which one to do while we're actually staying in Phuket.
We're also going to Bangkok after. Should we do the elephant excursion during this time? What about the Tiger temple?
Thanks for your assistance in advance
