Damn fine stay, decent value at GBP35 for room and brekkie, friendly staff, very nice rooms, although on a small steep hill. Good location for Kata yai and Noi beaches and out of the way of the razzamataz.

... to where they filmed James Bond's 'The man with the golden gun' in 1974 today. It was paradise. Then we had our own private kayaks take us around the islands. Last stop was a deserted beach which felt like Castaway and was lovely. The poor Aussie blokes have been piggy backing me all day on and off the boats due to the knee-high water! Tonight we are going to a Thai boxing match which should be ...
... again and we were on Phuket and then had to get transport to Kata Beach. This is a free for all as no metered taxis just minbuses and private taxis which cost a 1000 Baht a total rip off. The minibuses will not leave until full and lucky for uswe filled up and left within 20 minutes and fare was reasonable. First stop was Patong, thank god we are not staying there, it is built up and just bar after bar. We are 20km farther on and what a great surprise when we ...
