Day 14: After finally arriving in Phuket at around 5.30pm we caught a shuttle bus into town which we thought would take 30mins or so from the airport. 2 and a half hours later we finally arrived at what we thought was going to be our normal 3 star hotel but turned out to be a pretty decent resort which was definitely one of the best we have stayed …

... a drug deal take place. Perfect. I also had managed to block the toilet so the hut was stinking and a floaty poo just keep spinning round the bowl. And jack insisted on fixing it for us! NOOOO we had to hide the keys from him. After our night out with jack and Anna a hangover in the stinking hut was foul. The next day we decided to take a boat trip to THE beach. Where the movie was filmed. We decided to go 15 min before the boat left so we didn't have the basics with us like sun ...

Stag and Hen do

So i was pretty apprehensive and what today had in store for me, the experience wasn't quite as 'laddy' as i'd expected but was still a unique experience for me. We joined the group about half 9 for breakfast and then I was escorted away with the boys on a minibus down to the marina where a speedboat was waiting to take us to the island wear the James Bond film, the man with the golden gun was shot. The speedboat ride was very bumpy ...

... sense of humour is also thankfully the same and much entertainment was to be had over the next few days as customers came to terms (or not) with the mission statement of the establishment: “If you don’t like it, you can f**k off.” There are eight beach huts, four linked by a raised wooden walkway, and an open-sided thatched roof restaurant which is the focal point of activities from 8am til 8pm. We are 20 seconds walk from the tropically warm surf, cute little ...

... for the next hour. I usually give in.

Another interesting sight on the beach are men in thongs and topless women. I mean, I know that's common in other parts of the world, but Thai's are so conservative I don't think it is appropriate here. I'll just be hanging out on my towel, flip over onto my stomach, look up, and theres a naked women sitting 10 feet in front of me. No big deal. The men in thongs crack me up. There was even a man who weighed about 450 lbs ...

    The Old Phuket is tired,run down and in need of maintenence. The rooms are large ,Queensize bed,day bed,single. the whole room is painted white including the floor -which makes it difficult to clean as the floor and walls are grubby . The towels and linen are a delicate shade of grey and stained . The only room make up is the beds made -the bathroom has not been cleaned in 5 days . The staff are offhand and unhelpful at reception .The breakfast buffet is ok if you get there early before the food has been sitting for 4 hours or so . .Pity the fruit wasn't fresh and more variety ..
