“I need holidays!!” , my little heart screamed.

The day we reached Phuket airport, it was already 3.15pm. As I walked out the airport, there are alot of local Thais approached us, offering car rental services from tuk-tuk, taxi, van or even renting a car or motorbike.
We didn’t really worry about transportation in Phuket island. You can probably see “cars-for-rent” signs all over the places. Prices ranging from 600 bath to 1200 bath. We rented a lousy car that costed us 750 bath a day. The next day, we rented a motorbike for just 200 bath a day.
very lousy car
The petrol stations @ Phuket are different from what we have in our country..
We took a whole Free & Easy package thru AirAsia that provided us accomodation @ Best Western Phuket Ocean Hotel, inclusive breakfast for 2. Clean, facing seaview, friendly staffs, good services. And btw, breakfast was delicious.

The hotel we rented was located at Karon beach. A very prestint place for relaxation, although I was a bit freak out to see the big waves.
tourists can relax on the chairs provided along the beach
the history keep hunting my mind
i love this pic
Located less than 20km from Karon beach, is the famous Patong beach.
So many activities to choose from… Thai or even oil massage at only 300 bath. Remember to bargain. I did so, and managed to get the massage at 250 baht per pax. If you’re lucky, you might get a massage at just 200 baht. For gals, remember to wear bikini if you wanna go for massage, cos they require you to take off your cloths.

Through out my 4 days in Phuket, I met most foreigners than local Thais.
There were times I felt as if I was in western country than I was in Thai.
We went to JungCeylon, a shopping centre located at the heart of Patong town. Like other shopping centres we can find, it offers shops that sell cloths, shoes etc. Not forgetting fast food shops, cafe and pubs.

absolute ceylon pub
I love this part. I was walking in JungCeylon and I saw a facial treatment promotion. 359 bath including facial treatment and 45 mins massage. So worth! That made up two times massage in a day!
If you don’t like modern shopping mall, you can walk around town and will find alot shops selling cloths at cheaper price.
from Dior to LV
THE FOODS & DRINKS
Beers are cheap in Phuket, selling from 20 bath onwards.
We couldn’t resist trying out seafood @ Phuket.

We even tried out some local delicacies.

Unlucky. Raining season. I was forced to wear rain-coat….
looked so silly in that 30 bath raincoat
Influenced by movies, I wanted to go for some muay thai boxing or at least a THAI GIRL (not TIGER) show.
muay thai boxing @ 1200 baht
It was very happening at nite @ Patong town. We found pubs ( more than 50) along the road.
A lady approached us with a paper on her hand, saying “cheap cheap show”. I looked at the paper, it was a list of shows to pick from. Thai Girl Show, Lesbian Show, Sexy Show, Tiger Show, Crawling Show, Slicking Show, Cat Show and other weird names. 300 bath, worth trying. So we followed her into a pub. As I entered the pub, I couldn’t even open my eyes. Too smoky. As soon as my vision got better, the only thing I saw was….. 12 girls wearing bikini dancing on stage, each of them holding poles. My 1st reaction was…. ran out.
If you ask me, yes… I regret I didn’t stay for that show.
