Seat Sales from Airlines come almost every month and you just have to be wise and plan accordingly. When curiosity strikes for a destination, then I check on the rates. At first, I was eyeing for Bali, Indonesia but then ended up for Phuket, Thailand because of the price. Then asked for friends to join me, luckily I managed to convince 2 other girls to join. The trip is on! We booked the flights in February 2014 for a September 2014 flight.
Phuket is one of the southern provinces of Thailand.
On 26 December 2004, Phuket and other nearby areas on Thailand’s western coast suffered extensive damage when they were struck by the Boxing Day tsunami, caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. Almost all of the major beaches on the west coast, especially Kamala, Patong, Karon, and Kata sustained major damage, with some damage caused to resorts and villages on the island’s southern beaches.

By February 2005 many damaged resorts were back to business, and life slowly returned to normal. Following strenuous recovery programs, no tsunami damage can now be seen except on the most remote beaches. (Source: Wikipedia)
