    I am going to Thailand in November and am planning 2 days in Bangkok before flying to Chang Mai to hopefully do a cookery course and a trek. I am then thinking of flying down to Phuket. I was hoping to get some recommendations for places to stay and things to do. In particular I am worried about Phuket/Phi Phi - are there quiet places that are not so touristy? Or would it be better to go elsewhere?

    One in every three tourists to Thailand go to Phuket, so it's a bit of a challenge dodging the hordes there. If you're happy with backpacker comfort, Yu Nui Beach could be the trick.

    On Ko Phi Phi the back beaches on the east coast of the island are your best bet -- she our respective accommodation sections for detailed recommendations.

    I find Kata not too bad. It still has local restaurants and, of course, a few bars. Although prices start to increase late November/December, it is still possible to find a place around 500 baht away from the beach.

    Best to rent a bike to see the island; Sunday lunch at Rawai beach and sunset from view point are worthwhile, and a drive around the islands coast road produces some plesent surprises
