How do you find out what to do whilst you are in Phuket? Well above is the way that Travel Agents and Shops get you to choose! All that paper and this was only one guests collected in 14 days! This is not the only way! 1) Travel Books such as Lonely Planet Guide are still popular - but after the slashing of money that they pay the writers it has led to them not being the best way to find out information. 2) Internet Information is still popular and the website is slowly taking over from the printed version but are still not always accurate. Tripadvisor is slowly becoming more than just a hotel site BUT all reviews should be read
3) Blogs are a relatively new way to get information BUT then there is the fact that some travel bloggers visit places because that they can go for free - so we are back to number 2, the accuracy of the information. Blogs are also open to interpretation - what might be good for them might not be what you are looking for...
A day off in Phuket Town started with my daughter going to school and then my wife wanted her hair done and her nails painted. I went for a walk.
It was time for an iced tea and the waffles looked good - Pang Hom Chui was my first stop.
Then it was time to pay my respects to a roadside Temple - there are a lot around here.
Narrowly missing a motorbike.
Found a restaurant with a toy car and bicycle on the rook - not sure what it means...
Then it was time to find a comfortable place to sit down - this was not easy - I ended at Gluay Nam Wa which was very nice at this time in the morning. (Free WiFi and all those bits).
Then it was time for the bank - finding out that the place for the best Bubble Tea (Mellow Yellow) is temporarily closed!
Onto a journey for lunch and we took a detour to visit a Chinese Shrine - ศาลเจ้ากวนอู บ้านนาบอน - wonderful. So we moved onto to Wine Connection for a bottle of wine - has wine gone up again?
Thai food at Nikita's - I think that the place is best for Pizza's... Then it was time to get our daughter so we could go to the cinema to watch Jurassic World - it was fun. The trailers had no category - they were scary!!
