Phuket Trip ~ Day03 con't


Enjoying a spectacular sunset at Phrom Thep Cape, a headland viewpoint to the southwest end of Phuket island

also home to the grand Golden Jubilee Lighthouse


flashback Day03 evening during my previous Bali trip; sunset at Tanah Lot.. both island paradise have one thing in common ~ dramatic sunset viewpoints

sawadeekap crew in action

dinner at Patong...

in the tallest building on the island; though the buffet was only so-so

cruising the busy streets of Patong, where tuk-tuks reign supreme & are the beng-mobiles here ~ usually sporting loud colors, even louded sound system & exhaust & neon lights all over... they're like mobile discos! a wee fun to ride in =D


this trip would never be complete without getting a taste of traditional Thai massage...


This is Thai massage, as re-enacted by our not-so professional buddies *kids, don't try this at home*, is a twisty & bendy affair with a some 'bone-cracking' effects... awkward positions? get used to it. I survived being man-handled by a jumbo-sized masseuse! Is very rejuvenating as long as you have some tolerance for a bit of pain =D 5,600baht for a 2-hour full body massage is quite a bargain.


Hitching a ride back to hotel, at the back of an open deck pickup truck; cruising through the glitzy-lit streets of vibrant Patong, cool breeze blowing through our faces ~ so carefree & fun...

Until it started to rain cats & dogs halfway halfway through our journey home. Oh, boy, i have forgotten how good it felt playing in the rain... for once in a long while i felt like a kid having some innocent fun. That was one great ride! =D
*only in phuket... try that here you'll get pulled over by the cops. too bad*

thanks! =)
well, u can go checkout http://www.phuket.com/ ... like Bali, there's much more to it than just the beach & partying. Now that airasia has kch-bali direct, going to bali is much more feasible & cheaper now... already thinking about the next destination, hehe =p
though financial recovery is going to take sometime... =(
