Phuket Trip (Part 1)

Our first day at Phuket was spent mainly touring around the streets, shopping malls and the night market. We reached there at about past 10 am in the morning. We could not check into the hotel so we first left our lugguage at the hotel and went in search of tour agencies to book our day tours.
Burasari Resort.

One of the main mode of transport over there is motorcycle. You can just rent a motorbike for a cheap thai baht without any official license and ride all over Phuket, provided if you dare!

I thought my dd looked good in this photo. :P

McFlurry ice-cream! :P

This is where we booked our day tours for the next two days. There were actually lots of such tour agencies all over the streets of Phuket. This Mr Mark was recommended by fellow Singaporeans so we thought it would be safer.

Lunch at Jungceylon Shopping complex. Coconut juice (dd's) and mine was water-melon juice.

dd always order ramen.

This was my set. A healthy brown rice set with grilled salmon, kimchi and side salad.

This trip wasn't a shopping trip so I don't have the mood to shop. This is the only big shopping mall so there wasn't much to shop.
Finally we checked into our hotel. I had been looking forward to this stay cos' it doesnt' really come cheap considering that the rate was USD373 for three nights. To our dismay, the rooms wasn't as nice as what we had expected. No doubt it was rather big, some of the furnishings were rather old. The services was disappointing too, that we felt we had to write a review of it when we were back. You can read more about our reviews at Tripadvisor.

After a good rest in the hotel, we went for a stroll at Patong beach. Patong is one of the busiest and most commercialised beach. As you can see, there are many beach chairs which they chargeable.
We then proceeded to their a weekend night market, known as chatuchak located at Phuket Town.

Mobile van selling donut sticks.

Lots of interesting street food ranging from sushi, sweet snacks, pastries and crabs. We only tried some of them.
Our last meal of the day. A simple bee hoon soup with pork balls. :)
I shall post more about our day tour trips. ;)
