Sand Sculpting is here in Phuket - my daughter loved the shark that she found on the beach near where we live - South Phuket.

Where else do they do this?
Who did this?
Can they teach me?

There are some books about it - click here for Amazon.

What's the weather like?

Well I have to admit to not being the purveyor of this - that belongs to Jamie in Phuket.

Don't go fishing where you are not allowed - how do we find out? Please email me if you have any details.

Fined for fishing in a public park - Rama IX - in Phuket Town!

Tales of the park;
 - did you know that a man was found shot in the park 2 days previous to this incident?
 - on August 4th men poisoned the fish in the park (80 kilos)

Buy your flowers at the front of the park - Suan Luan Flowers!

This family paid a lot for their excess luggage. The rates for excess baggage on Thai Airways are printed somewhere - if you can find it please email timinphuket.

All I can say is that you should always dress well, speak well and NOT be rude, may be there will not be any charge? Did they follow all these tips?

Is there a need in Phuket for a HI-Tech Car Wash? 
What is wrong with the boys? - our favourite are the ones in Central carpark.
