Phuket Trip • Day One

Well, just got back from Phuket yesterday night. I was pretty exhausted for the 4d3n trip in Phuket.


Back in M'sia, familiar places, familiar faces and not to mention familiar languages.Lol. Anyway gonna update my Phuket Trip blogpost with the photos uploaded in my facebook, still haven't got the photo from Elaine's camera.


Back to the topic. Many people has been asking me how was the trip.. i'm gonna summarized it here. Here's day one :)


Never slept for the night as i was extremely excited. Look at my eye bags babeh.

We reached Lcct at 5am in the morning and our flight was at 6.55am. Flight from Kuala Lumpur to Phuket only took around 1 hour and 20 minutes. Please be reminded that the time zone in Thailand is SLOWER than Malaysia, for approximately 1 hour. Don't forget to switch the time once you landed in Thailand!

Once you landed in the airport, do not worry about the transportation cause there will be numerous taxi there. Don't forget to bargain with the taxi driver for the taxi fare! It still can reduced although you tot it might be cheap already. All taxi there are Toyota! Luxurious huh.


Mini TV attached behind the seat so you could ease your boredom. How sweet :)

Kids there took tuk-tuk to school every morning.

Anyway the distance between airport to our hotel (somewhere in Patong) is quite far away, the journey to there took almost an hour.


The driver cheated our feeling, he said he wanted to go for toilet and stopped by a shop. In fact the shop is a travel agency. Hahaha. Anyway, we signed a few packages from them. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET to bargain with them.

We signed a Fantasea Theme Park (Buffet included) for 1600 baht and island hopping to Phi Phi Island and other island for 1600 baht. The boss of this travel agency is owned by Malaysian as told by the promoters, we were first doubt about it but found out it was true after all. Hahaha.

And there is an uncle working there is from M'sia too! He was our tour guide yesterday, and it was too good to be true to found someone who can speak language that you can understand there.


Went straight to our hotel to check in. We reserved our hotel months earlier at Agoda.com for only RM350++ for 3Nights. (Correction: RM350++ for per pax, around RM 600-700 each room for two)


Aspery Hotel never failed to impress me with their service and cleanliness. The room was pretty much alike with the photo shown on the net, i was satisfied :) On additional, a few desktop are provided in the lobby so that you can go online even though you're in overseas. Wifi available in the room too! Awesomeness.


By the way, a swimming pool is provided on the top roof of the hotel. Just a mini pool :)

Took a nap for like 4 hours then we went out for a walk nearby. Gosh, the weather in Patong is really "sizzling" Hot. I know this is to describe food that is hot but cereasly i feel my skin were sizzling all the time. Headache due to the unbearable weather :(


We headed to Jungceylon mall, which is the only mall in Patong area by tuk tuk. 200baht for four person. The price are fixed to travel around Patong area, either tuk tuk or taxi.

Walked around the mall and also had some street food opposite the mall. Bought a maxi there :D


In the tuk tuk with Elaine.

The mall looking good.

We rided another tuk tuk back to our hotel to get ready for upcoming event in the night. We were going to Fantasea Phuket! The travel agency promised to pick us up at 5.45pm. I was kind of feeling unwell already, most prolly due to insufficient sleep and the weather -.-


Photobucket



Reached there and witnessed lots of crowd.

Somewhere we had our buffet dinner - Kinnaree Buffet Restaurant
Photobucket


The dining hall was really huge and awesome. Variety of food provided but the taste were just Okay... And believe me i just ate not more than 200baht. Lol. Good thing about that was, table number was provided so that you do not need to squizee with others just to reserve your seat. It was well-organized.


This is where we watched the performance at 9pm - Palace of Elephant
Photobucket


There was a theatre hall inside which can accomodate up to 4000 audiences! Amazingly huge and same thing in the dining hall, seat number was provided. First come first basis, so if you booked the tix earlier or exchanged the tix earlier you could get a front seat.


Talking about the performance, it was all about the Thailand culture and a story about a legandary elephant - Kamala. The performance was around 1 hour and the half, no camera and handphone allowed in the hall. The story line was a little bit dull, partly due to i was sick that i couldn't focus.. Some performance are hilariuous, some performance are rawrsome.


"ASIAN" - the word i could think of when i watched one of the performance. You will get it if you read 9gag alot. :P


Apart from the Kinnaree Buffet Restaurant and The Palace of Elepant, there were plenty of souvenirs shop, museum, and mini indoor theme park inside Fantasea Phuket. Some kind of like Universal Studio Singapore but much smaller. The price there was overrated.. Didn't get to spent single cent for anything there.

Lastly, a pic of me with the prince! Teehee.

I will update the following days as fast as possible, i knew that i wouldn't have much time to do this cause internship starting soon.... :(


Signing off here, xo.

  7. Nice post.
    Phuket in Thailand is also the best choice for a tropical beach vacation and this is affordable and wonder place for enjoying holidays.

  8. 1,600THB./person for Phi Phi island tour by speedboat is a reasonable price.
    Do not recommend you to choose cheaper than this price with low quality of service ;)

  11. Nice article! On my experience, I find it hard to find the Cheapest Hotels in Phuket even searching the web. I’m fortunate that I know someone who went there before and gave me some recommendations.
