Since our flights were early on Friday, we had to make our way back to Phuket on Thursday and spend another night there. Turns out that the weather was really ******--overcast, rainy, and windy--that day, so we were not too disappointed. We had previously booked a boat directly from Ko Lanta to Phuket (~4 hours), so everything was set. We even had the hotel call and confirm the ticket and everything, so things should have gone smoothly, right? Right?! ...
Our journey to Phuket got off to a rockey start i must say. This was because while being on this tiny little island getting distracted by kitties and drunken northerners we had lost count of the days and were one day behind the rest of the world. The result being that on the morning before (or so we thought) we were rudely awoken by a maid telling us in no uncertain terms to **** off. Ive never packed so fast. And together we ran our little legs ...
... In the afternoon we headed to maya bay which is the beach featured in the Leonard's disc april film "The Beach". Unfortunately the weather was not quite as good but arriving late afternoon and leaving early morning meant we had the usually crowded beach almost to ourselves. Before we knew it the week was over and it was a hectic afternoon for me leaving one trip at midday and having to get to Bangkok in time for another trip at 6! More on that trip ...
This was going to be a long day, an 8 hour excursion. We woke to hazy skies, but humid and warm. Our kind of weather.
We soon boarded buses that would take us to Phang Nga Bay. The ride to the Bay was quite long, but we saw the countryside with lots of small stalls selling anything from food to plasticwares. We saw a large pineapple field, rubber trees.
The boats are called long-tailed boats. There were small, and I mean small ...
... and I sipped on red whilst the big red set behind Karon Beach.
Back to the hotel, got ready for dinner. I rang and booked a table at 'The Royal Kitchen' in Patong. 25 stories high overlooking Patong - a Chinese restaurant. Not bad, had better Chinese at the Shark Fin in Lt Bourke Street. Cost B1,500.
Got a Songthaew back. Kids in bed - all asleep by 2200 hours.
Bit of a relax day.
