Phuket Happenings - October 2014


October saw the culmination of the Phuket Vegetarian Festival and I managed to not have a visit to the Phuket International Hospital this year. Thousands packed the roads for the Festival.

October started off as a very wet month and what can you do in Phuket when it rains?!


The Worldwide Photowalk was not as previous years but it was fun none the less - next time I really should order a T.Shirt.


Then there was an escape to Australia for a fortnight...

More importantly - should I buy a Drone?


So there was a system of renting out the beach area and it was known about!


Phuket is scared to lose them????

Jet-ski's allowed on Kamala beach 
- what? I thought...
- allowed to park...? 
Jet-ski's are still scamming tourists 
- - what? I thought...

6 illegal elephants to be expelled 
- think that they meant 'unregistered'...

The bypass road collapses again
- they want to build a tunnel?

An incident at Phuket Tiger Kingdom...
- not visiting there again (dad was right)

Phuket Floating Market in 2015
