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 ..

Afterwards we went to Mario Land which was actually a pretty cute arcade where we played Mario Racing which was fun aha. As we got back to the hotel Jord decided that he was going to go for a 30 minute massage which was fine but I decided to head back to the room because ...
... was 10B so we got one and fed the monkeys out our hands! They would stand right up and hold onto your hand and then either lift the nuts with their hands or just stick their faces in your hand. It was the cutest thing we both agreed with many "Awws!!!" from each of us! There were all ages of monkeys, including some tiny babies that were just learning to jump into the low bushes. One lady from the Chinese tour bus decided to go near a baby for ...
As we quietly rode Rainbow through forests and fields, she would occasionally stop to find some tasty vegetation or drink some water from a stream. She would also frequently perform a variety of other bodily functions. Her handler, Pu Get, would remark jokingly "oh! Hamburger patty!" or "Chang Beer!". English clearly wasn't his forte, but it just goes to show you that a little language barrier is no match for some ...
