Big rooms, clean, staff helpful. As a party of 7 we stayed in Dorm room and deluxe double with an extra bed. This hotel is ageing, but gracefully. Facilities are good, location in Phuket town fine. We would happily stay here again.

... haze was lifting.
Managed to do the provisioning while we had the hire car & headed out to meet Murrundi in Chang lat a lovely sheltered anchorage. We were just putting the anchor down & the first local boat with prawns arrived yummy! Sorted out & barb & John came over which turned into a big night with their prawns on the Barbie. John managed to take a swim but he saved the ice bucket lid! Did some cruising around & John & Phil had ...

Filthy streets, huge garish nightclubs and more prossies than you could shake a stick at, bizarrely it seemed to be full of fat, unattractive white men!

Unfortunately the boat I was taking was going via Koh Phi Phi which would be a pain but the other options were ridiculously overpriced (even my hotel thought so). I was picked up a lot earlier then I needed to be but that's just what they do apparently. Arriving at the main pier I was told that I could put my bags on the boat and then go back to ...
... could watch. The fighters were likely five or six years old! It looked to me, as a Westerner, so inappropriate. But this for many is a normal sport and part of growing up. The corners were packed for these fights with yelling coaches, family and other children. Before each Muay Thai fight, the fighters bow on the stairs into the ring and now saying what I assume to be a prayer of some kind. I the ring, they walk to each corner and bow and touch the pads. They then do ...
... they dispatched someone to pick us up. About an hour later a hotel representative came to tell us that the taxi that was coming to pick us up had been in a crash and they were trying to find another available driver. We sat in the lobby and eventually they came back again saying there were no taxi’s available. So I ventured again into the chaos to try find a driver. This was weird, every other day we were walking down the street we would be accosted every 20 meters ...
