    Any advice on good prepaid SIM cards for traveling around Europe and UK?

    In the UK Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and 3 all have pre-paid or Pay As You Go sims for local calls but if you're travelling with a laptop then I'd say Skype would be your best bet for calling home. over 8 years ago

    Where to take a girl on a date?

    Trafford or Arndale Centre, give her your credit card and meet her in about 3 hours. You'll be married (but broke) within a week! ;) Seriously though there's so uch to do. A good date bar is the Bluu Bar in the Northern Quarter. It's very chilled with intimate spaces and a good Brasserie attached for food. There's a great Tapas place on Deans Gate. Although a word of advice from experience. If you go there on a date, make sure its not while Spain are playing in football match and if they are certainly don't abandon the girl in favour of sitting in the kitchen with the chefs watching the match. It doesnt go down well although you do get free chorizo.... Another good place is Cloud 23 on the 23rd floor of the Hilton Tower with great views of the city. If its a sunny day you could also go down to a place called Dukes 92 which is right next to the Canal and great for alfresco weekend relaxing over 8 years ago

    places to go and see at Karon

    There's not a huge amount in Karon itself apart from the beach, it's a lovely beach though. Right now it's quite quiet so you'll have a couple of miles of pristine white sand pretty much to yourself/ You could use the facilities at the Hilton (Pools, Tennis, Gym, Bar's) for a day fee which is about half way down Karon beach towards Kata. There is a Wat or Temple which has a market a couple of days a week which is on the main road from Karon Circle to Chalong (Patak Road) which is worth a visit. At the southern most end of Karon as you go into Kata there is a Mini Golf actuvity with a Dinosaur Theme which is actually pretty good. About 10 minutes drive north is the main tourist area of Patong, between th 2 there is so interesting Nightlife to check out. There is the late, late open air nightclub called Safari where everyone goes after the main bars and clubs shut. They have some pretty strange offerings such as "Dunk The Lady Boy" and a climbing wall along with a huge screen you can sometimes watch sports on. There is also the Phuket Fantasea which is also apparently well worth the visit although I havent made it down yet. You can do fishing trips from Chalong Pier, about 15 minutes drive, or for the nicest beach in Southern Phuket, head to Nai Harn, along the waythere are a couple of Elephant Trek / Sanctuarys. Enjoy and e4mail me if you want anything specific or more details. I live in Kata so just next door. over 8 years ago
