As a previous visitor to Thailand and one who enjoy's their beaches, i.e. Phuket/Samui/Krabbe/Pattaya/Ao Nang, I feel that perhaps on this occasion I should venture a little wider and discover what else is available in that particular part of Asia.
I appreciate the difficulty of the question but, having seen my usual haunts, any suggestions on where is reasonably accessible for a short two week break from London in January?
I tend to book flights and just wing it whilst there rather than do the package thing. There's nowt like stumbling across your place of rest by chance and simply because that's where your nose led you.
I could do a city for a week if need be (Ho Chi Minh?), and budget is loosely £20-50pd for accommodation. I'm also a fan of flushing toilets as was caught off guard in Samui a couple of years ago when that particular facility proved most welcome.
I will be posting a similar question on the Vietnam forum as this is also an area that I have so far not visited.
Appreciate any advice you can give.
