Exploring Phuket

A travel blog entry by benned

The final full day in Phuket, so we decided to abandon the relaxation strategy and go exploring.

A 7am pickup from the hotel, and we headed to the Flying Hanuman - a great adventure centre where we spent 2 hours traversing the side of a steep hill on a series of zip lines high up in the tree tops (with a couple of abseil drops for good measure). The longest zip line was 400m long, with speeds apparently up to 60km/hr as you hung, spun and flew narrowly missing the tree ...

When you consider the islands that are so tantalizingly close, it seems like madness to stay in Patong. But I suppose it's a kind of spectacle that's hard to match in its sheer ...

Thailand Escapades

... He also told me why everyone in Thailand has a brand new car. When I was here last year I was so confused about why all these people who live in a poor nation have such nice cars. These people are driving around in brand new Toyota hiluxes and Honda CRV's, all nice and shiny. He told me that the Thai government offered everyone 100,000 baht, which is about 3000 Aussie dollars, to people who purchased a brand new car. Pretty ...
