Looking at taking the family to Thailand for a few weeks in winter. That includes an 8 year old and 70 year old mom who is in pretty good shape.
I love the look of some of the resorts around Phuket but they seem isolated. At least one of us in the group will go crazy if he/she can't get off the grounds and wander around.
Also, is transportation easy to get to/from resorts? I don't want to wait forever for buses but I don't want to be taking overpriced taxis everywhere.
And since I have your attention, I'm thinking of the Ren in Bangkok for several days why we do some day trips. I'm assuming I'll be delighted.
Any advice is appreciated.
