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 …

... all had different numbers or exactly where to go. My experience of herding cats is limited, generally I try and chase them away, but if I were to herd cats I expect it would be like the scene before us as hundreds of people went in all directions and were distracted by things along the way. Whilst we all set out at the same time there was about a 20 minute gap between the first and last to arrive at the boat. Mum and dad got side tracked at a market stall, ...

... however, lay not in the rapids but in the traffic
created by the several hundred boats trying to white water raft at once. It turns out that several other groups went
rafting that same day. Whenever one boat
would get stuck, everyone behind would crash, and huge traffic jams
ensued. I’m convinced that traffic
lights would have been beneficial that day.

... traffic, housing, scenery, roadside stalls. It's a bit of a sensory overload.

Arrived at the hotel and it's beautiful. Had a quick cocktail and regrouped for a while and then off adventuring. Walked into the village at Nai Thon beach. This is their off season, so not many people around - especially on a rainy day. All the shop owners are out front trying to coax you inside with offers of discounts on their wares. ...

... an island only accessible through a cave. Here we checked out the Mangrove forest and had fun looking at the local mudskippers (aka walking fishes) moving around. After these three sights, our day was over, but enjoyed a great dinner in town and drinks on the beach to cap of the night.
The next day, we set sailed for Ko Phi Phi, famously known as the sight for the movie "The Beach" starring a young Leonardo DiCaprio. Ko ...

    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 ..
