Singing In The Rain - With Promaster and GoPro
Well, there's no need for that sort of thing - you might be discouraged but you can still be civil...Oh, wait...I didn't see the spelling. You're GOING to Phuket, eh? Ahh.
Rainy up there, I daresay. Like Queensland*. Or Tasmania*. You'll need something to keep the camera dry. Promaster Rain jacket has two arm-sleeves, a lens sleeve, and a clear plastic back to let you see through the finder - and all for $ 69. Better than pouring water out of your DSLR after a day out.
If you want to do it in style...trendy modern cutting edge hip hop hep style...take a GoPro Silver for $ 395. It can do movies, stills, coronial enquiry evidence, etc. and as it is in a waterproof housing anyway you can splash about happily in the rain forest or on the beach. there are about a million accessories to mount it on anything fixed or movable and they are surprisingly inexpensive.
