What'ss the best street food by the Rung Tawan Hostel, or around Karon?

There is so many, but for me that's easy. Around the Rung Tawan Hostel, like anywhere around Karon or Phuket, there will be little grilled chicken (Kai Yang) street stalls. The chicken is often eaten with sticky rice (Khao Niaow) and sweet chilli sauce. Yum!. Try it for breakfat. Real goooooood 🙂

Is it OK to drink water from the tap in Rung Tawan Hostel, or around Karon on Phuket?

Personally I do NOT drink water from the tap on Phuket, but they say you can? I suggest that you buy 6 pack bottled water from any local Karon mini market around the Rung Tawan Hostel for drinking. The cheap clear, none branded, bottles, to me, are the best. I do though, as with other expats and locals around Karon, brush my teeth with tap water, and use it for making tea / coffee etc, but only after boiling a few times. If you are unsure when you arrive to the Rung Tawan Hostel, stick to the bottled water.

Where is the best locations to watch the sunset on Phuket?

In my view the beach. Around the Rung Tawan Hostel is OK but the best places are: Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep), Big Buddha or Kata Rocks. Anywhere around the west / south side of Phuket island.

How much is a beer or larger in around the Rung Tawan Hostel or Karon?

The beer or larger prices around Rung Tawan Hostel or Karon on the island of Phuket is: Domestic Beer is around 70฿ to 90฿ now, while Imported beer or lagers, like San Miguel or Heineken, will be around 100฿ to 120฿. Nightclubs, and higher end venues can be a lot more and supermarkets / mini markets will be a bit cheaper. Check out the 'Happy Hour' signs as you walk or drive by. Most bars will have them. I have known people on Phuket island who only track these events and save a load of money. Everyone to his/her/their own right 🙂

Bottom line is 'Yes'. This goes for national holidays in your own Country also. Try avoid flying in heavy traffic holidays by travelling from / to Karon or Phuket before or after any major holidays.

Is there a smoking lounge at Phuket International Airport?

Bottom line is yes. Once you leave the Rung Tawan Hostel to go to Phuket airport simply go to the departure lounge, after immigration, and its by a small coffee shop. Be warned. The smoking room is very small and even before you lite up it feels like you have already had 5 cigs 🙂 VAPERS BE AWARE! Vaping (e-cigarettes) is still banded in Thailand 'so say' due to health issues, but in reality for import tax issues. 'On the spot' fines, or threats of jail time by local police. IF you do vape, and do get stopped and fined, ask for a police report. That should be fun? Bottom line is to 'just buy cigs' for your holiday. Saves on the flaff. TIT.

Yes. You can get free Wi-Fi at Phuket International Airport' by connecting to the airports access point.
