Hi I am going to Phuket for the first time next month and staying at Karon Beach. I have been reading alot recently about all these violent incidents in Phuket lately and has me a little worried. They seem to be have taken place around Patong the vast majority of them. Does anyone have any DO's and DONT's about being in Phuket. I was in BKK last year and yes there were scammers around but I never felt really in any sort of harm or danger. I know one DO is to agree to taxi price before getting in. Is it a bad idea to carry around my iphone/credit cards around as it seems most of these incidents stem from theft. Should I just carry around cash and leave all my valuables in the hotel safe?
