AHHHH Thailand, Thailand, Thailand!
Thailand is easily one of the best country's I have had the honor of visiting!
We stayed for a week, and let me tell you it was not long enough at all. I have already booked to go back in October!
Phi Phi Island tour:
I cannot remember the name of the company, they were good however the …
... the stage and knew exactly where to go. It is funny to us because chickens are inherently stupid and they look special when they run on a slick stage. I don't support the enslavement of any of the peformers (people or animals...especially the animals) but it was an entertaining show. As we walk out of the front gate Cody looks over his shoulder and yells, "we'll come back for you, we'll save you!" I go to bed smiling, thinking about elephants and how I still smell. I might never bathe ...
... a local and it was two doors down, embarrassing! This hostel is a lot worse than our Bangkok one, weird vibes. Me and Donna went and Sussed out Phuket, walking down to the beach and around town, a lot more tourists here and it feels a bit seedy, this was proven when at lunch our drinks came in a glass the shape of a naked lady! We're in Phuket or a while but decided tonight was the best night to experience the nightlife! In our hostel bar we met ...
... We then decided maybe the other one would be the same and decided to go shopping instead. We asked 'Q' to take us to the Premium Outlet stores. After walking around for a little while, spending $1200THB ($40AUD) on a shirt really wasn't what u was here to do. Returned to the hotel for lunch and decided a foot massage and pedicure was what we needed. So here we are relaxing getting our feet massaged, rather then the happy ending we were laughing ...
... of. But as we wandered about the place we came directly to a bar and if we paid 150 baht for a drink we could go inside. It was a far better deal than any of the touts were offering.
Now, my parents and grandmother read this blog so I wont go into any detail but it was interesting to note that the patrons of this bar were mostly mixed gender groups of friends like us and that there wasn’t really anything sexual about the show itself. We were at a very mild show though ...

This hotel is fantastic. I was traveling to Thailand for my 21st Birthday and had heard great reviews about this hotel.
I traveled with my boyfriend and another couple, on our arrival the other couple were put downstairs and us upstairs. there room was a lot better and I was a little upset that they had the better room and it was my birthday. I went and told reception and without any hassle they changed us to a downstairs room that was also set up for a honeymoon and it was lovely.
The pool, the staff, the service were wonderful I could not fault if I wanted to. Right in the middle of all the action, 10 minutes to the beach, 5 to Bangala night strip.
This hotel is great if your looking for something very central, great service and a really nice hotel, looks better than a lot of other 3 star hotels in Patong :)
The only advise I have to make your stay a little better ask for a downstairs room, which have a separate rainforest shower, the upstairs rooms have the shower and toilet together and the shower Is not great.
