The following hotels are bear friendly the hotels are fairly priced, just a quick note that it’s high season in Phuket so the hotels will be a little more expensive and will be booked up quickly –

Hotels Combined is a great resource when looking for a hotel as it checks across all the major hotel booking websites: http://www.hotelscombined.com/

For anyone looking at the best flight options, we would also recommend checking out Skyscanner as it again compares prices across all the airlines and doesn’t add any commission, so the price you see is the same as the airline price: http://www.skyscanner.net/

As for Phuket itself, TripAdvisor will give you the low-down on all the different areas of the island as well as hotel reviews – always worth a look before booking:

This is the main Gala Dinner of the 2015 ORSA Convention.
We will be joined on the evening by our special guests Marco Negri, John “Bomber” Brown, Andy Goram & ex-Scottish Football referee Bobby Tait where we will hear some great tales in the company of some true Rangers Legends. You will also get the chance to ask some questions, plus get some photos and autographs!
A buffet dinner will be provided with selected beers, wines, spirits & non-alcoholic drinks. The dress code is very casual…..it is Thailand after all!
The price of the event is 3,000 Thai Baht (half-price for kids), which is approximately AUS$100, GBP60 HK$700, US$90 – this is the same price as the most recent few ORSA Convention Gala Dinners!
