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 ..

Our bus from our guesthouse arrived on time and we got dropped outside a hotel to await our bigger bus that we believed was an all night one so we could sleep. However like most things so far not much is what it seems. So we get on the bus at 10.30 pm , Soph pops a diazepam, we huddle under our blankets and doze off. The bus stopped around midnight …
... t know cashews grew on trees and 1 fruit only gave 1 nut! Which had to be removed by hand. So much work! No wonder so ex.
Ok so the tendering felt ok when it wasn't raining. But was really ridiculous when it did! It wasn't fully sheltered and the rain was coming into the boat as everybody squeezed under the shelter like some fugitive!
After a warm shower went for dinner and once again - another show! It was local magic act - jc sum and babe ning. Not impressed at all ...
... our destination and spent the rest of the day walking around the town and admirring the beautiful sino-portuguese architecture. On our last day, we went to visit the Phuket Aquarium, the gibbon rehabilitation center and finally, a quaint little museum located in downtown Phuket.
Overall we had a fantastic week! I really enjoyed the beautiful islands and the exquisite food of the Andaman coast. I would love to go back again! Maybe one day...... :)
... a Dutch guy who also wanted to go to Krabi for a taxi. And we went to the bus station and got a ticket for the next minibus to Krabi. We almost lost a backpack, which were on the roof and after shouting and with the help of Thai woman in the bus they stopped and fixed the luggage an then we continued to the main bus station outside of Krabi. In Phuket am Flughafe hbei mir eus nachem Schuttelbus in d'Stadt umegluegt. Natuerlich si e hufe Taxifahrer zu uns ...
There are also a couple of massage shops here as well as a great shop where we bought t-shirts, hats, boardies etc. There didn’t appear to be any bartering, it was a fixed price shop, but I only paid 300 baht for D and G and Von Dutch tops, it was air conditioned and with a big changing room, so I was happy to pay a bit extra. There is also a 7/11 with an ATM, which we made good use of.
