How is the schlepp from the airport to Khao Lak? JW Phuket at Mai Khao is all of 20 minutes from the airport which to me (going to be travelling with a 5 year old and a 2 year old) is a BIG plus.

Advice - Car Rental Damage Claim (not another one!!!)

I'll try and keep this short / summarise the succinct points:

Definitely not Tokyo, the overall time + miles + cash economics just don't make sense to spend <12 hours in the city, and those 12 hours aren't even the good part of the day.
