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 ..

After the boys finding their own lunch, we headed off on a tour of the island to get a better sense of the layout of the island.... or so we thought. Despite having instructions from the travel agent we have here ...
... and so is pitch black in the middle. You have to swim through it (or you can just squeeze through in a sea kayak) to get to the other side. The reward is the most amazing cove, completely sealed by a towering ring of limestone cliffs with a perfect white sand beach at the base. Hundreds of tourists are boated in every day from surrounding islands but we arrived in late afternoon specifically because that's when all the tourists start heading out. As we pulled up to the cave ...
Phuket Day 3 was a full day outing at the Phang Nga. Phang Nga are large limestone rocks in the seas off Krabi province, a bit like Utah's Momument Valley.
We started off the day with a bus that pick us up at 8:30 in the morning from the hotel lobby. The bus picked up a few other guests as well from hotels nearby as dropped us off to the Jetty. Here, our tour guides arrived with one of us spending he next few minutes boring ...
