Phuket Trip I

Monday, January 14, 2013

Ohai people! This post was totally a back dated ones, where I'll be blogging about my last year's September trip to Phuket. Well, at least there's a post rather than nothing right? Okay. This maybe not the only post as we (me, Fan Su & friends) went there for a 4 days 3 nights trip. Today I'll be just blogging about our Day One in Phuket.

Something we did before this trip, where most of the others will do too - do research on which, when, where, how to go. For our trip, most of our trips: airport transfers, Island hoping, Phuket Town tour etc. being arranged by Phuketpickup and Tour Company Ltd. One thing I really want to say is that, they really give a very good hospitality and services throughout the whole trip. They are totally in time, never late, and friendly too! And another thing is that, when you're going in a bunch of people, like us, you can consider them too as they give you all a special rate too! Special rate as in much more cheaper than the rate they posted online! Highly recommended.

Our picture in plane. We went there on September, a rainy season in Phuket. We landed in Phuket few hours later than scheduled due to the rainy weather which caused the plane cannot land. (==") So, we ended up landed at Krabi (I think should be Krabi! Hehe!) Hatyai to refuel the plane then heading to Phuket again.

So there we landed in Phuket and reached Patong, where we'll stay for the whole trip. Staying at Patong is a better choice where most of the highlights and nightlife are all in Patong!

Our hotel for the trip. @White Patong Boutique Hotel Highly Recommended by me. 
Strategic location (few minutes walk to mall, the nightlife, and beach), people were friendly...

.. rooms were very clean and spacious. And most important of all, the rates are just THB700 (RM70) per night only! A good thing about visiting on low peak season.

After checked in, getting ready, we're heading to Jungceylon (largest shopping mall in Phuket) 
Just few minutes walk from our hotel.

First stop in the mall, Lunch! Burger King. I'm not a Burger King lover, but I can tell you I'm in love with their burger! Tremendous delicious I tell you. A lot better than the ones in Malaysia.

Later in the evening, we went to Phuket FantaSea. A must go when you're in Phuket. Is a Nighttime Cultural Theme Park. More info and the rates available in the website.
*ps We got a cheaper rates from the tour. Around THB2000 (RM200) for transport, dinner & show

One thing special about this theme park is that each and every corner has different themes with different things for sale.

And a must tried buffet, with different variates of foods. Really alot of foods I tell you.
Just look at their buffet place. Very grand!

There's this place inside the theme park too...

.. where there's animals inside. Spot the white tiger!

The highlight of the Theme Park. The show inside the theater which starts on 9pm.
The crowds started to gather there around 8.30pm for the security check, as phones and cameras are not allowed inside the theater. Although they speak Thai, but is a great experience: a good storyline, unique show with a lot of elephants and other animals shows.

That sums up my Phuket Day 1 trip. More post soon. Have a nice day y'all~
