Great place to stay in Bangkok/Phuket?
I am wrapping up my RTW, and as the motorcycle floats from Korea to Los Angeles, I am flying to meet the girly in Thailand. A few days in Bangkok, and maybe a week in Phuket.
I am sure that some of you have been there before, and I am wondering about great (and cheap!) places to stay. I am looking mainly to chill out for the time there, so away from the screaming city is better. I'm thinking about a little bungalow near the beach...
Thanks for any info...
Go slow, be well.
