Hubby and I enjoyed and preferred the easy paced Phuket for a short getaway before my birthday. Sun, sea and seafood galore... what more can I asked for?!!! All in all, I've totally enjoyed this relaxing holiday and wished that it could be longer... but then work beckons... sigh!
Anyway, here's a recap of our first day in Phuket...
|Early breakfast at Subway KLIA2|
TIP 2: If you can't decide to take either the minibus or taxi to your hotel, just multiply the headcount. For example, it costs THB 800 for a taxi to Patong and THB 180 per pax for minibus. So if you have 2 pax, it's more cost efficient to take the minibus. Either way, you will still have to stop over their mid point sales centre to listen to their 'short sales speech'.
We have checked into the same hotel which we favoured, Forty Winks Hotel, as we liked their customer service and room service... friendly and clean. No photos of the room here as we were too anxious to freshen up and go out! The weather was so sunny and perfect! You can view the photos of the room from my previous post here.
As always without fail, our sumptuous seafood gourmet lunch at Banzaan Market. Unfortunately, the price of live seafood has increased by +- THB500 compared to our last trip in December last year. Apparently, according to the seller, the lobsters are from Australia and not local hence the steep pricing. Well, it looked the same to me so I would not have known if he had lied...
|Our lunch was less than THB 2,000 in total|
|Tea time at Food Bazaar!|
|A must: Khao Kang Moo!!! Plus some yummy grilled marinated meat LOL!|
Next: day 2 stuck in the mall
