My 5D4N Trip to Phuket!Friday, May 25, 2012
Anyway, went back to the hotel, and we didn't manage to upgrade to deluxe and jacuzzi because it was way more expensive that I'd expected :(
But still, our room was beautiful!!
But there weren't much things to see there.. The things around Patong area is like the same -_- It's expensive and common!!
Time for dinner!!
Continued walking.. We decided to go Bangla Road since it is the ultimate clubbing area!!!! hahaha!
We walked past a few bars and they had these show case girls dancing above.. They were like Russian hot girls and what the hell were they doing? I'm sure it'
s better in their own country..
After that, we headed back to our hotel since tomorrow we had a full day at Phi Phi Island :)
Along the way, bought some supper back!
Apparently, we were really tired since we slept kinda late.. So woke up feeling a little hungry and groggy :(
Rushed like mad and waited at the entrance of our hotel for our bus!
Luckily, they came in time and picked us up and we went to the departure area, which was FILLED with people. Freaking hot too!
After awhile, we set off!!!!!!
Enjoy some of the pictures we took over there!:)
Our next stop- Monkey island!
Next stop was Raya something? Lol
They offered snorkelling there and there were many pretty huge fishes!!!!!!!!
After that, we were sent back to our hotel and had a quick shower before heading out for some Thai food!
We were outside Banzaan Market and there was a food night market just right outside!
It was just okay.. But not up to our expectations since it just tasted like what I always have in Singapore ? -_-
Some snacks to go with our dinner!
3rd DAY!: Bungee Jump, Freedom Beach, The Huntdown for Authentic Thai Food
YES! We were so deprived of the local authentic food that we decided to hunt down the entire streets of Patong!
Finally, we found this shabby stall which was merely sheltered by some cloths but the food looked pretty appealing so we tried it out!
Well ,it definitely didn't disappoint us!
Went back to eat supper - our banana pancake!!!!!
This time, we added egg in it :)
After that, we went SHOPPING - yes again! This was how addicted we were. It was so fun to bargain!!!!!! Bought a hat, I Love Phuket shirt, top, and some other miscellaneous stuffs.
Decided to sit down for a drink!
And guess what! He bought a waterproof casing for my camera so we could take photos underwater :)
Finally we had GOOD, AUTHENTIC THAI FOOD FOR DINNER :)
I forgot the name of the restaurant, but the service was pretty good too. And not to mention, the food! There were many asians dining there, and everyone seemed to be drinking their tom yum soup, haha!
After that, caricature for 200baht for 2 people!!!!!!
At the end of this trip, I would like to wrap it up by advising people who are travelling to Phuket for the first-time.
- When they prompt you to sign up for islands tours by speedboat, normal boat etc, don't take their word. Just go for the cheaper option. When I signed up, they told me mine was VIP which we need not squeeze with others. And see? Everyone who paid for the boat fare ended up in the same boat as the ones who paid for the VIP? Zzz. Dishonesty.
- Change your money..... at Patong area. Not at the airport area. We found quite a lot of areas with good exchange rates.
- Always have money with you before you check in to your hotel. We changed $100 which wasn't enough for our room deposit. Wtf
- Always bargain!!!!!
