We woke to a humid and hot day and headed down to the beach to enjoy the morning. We moved to a new spot on the beach and mom and Tess took a walk around the bay while the boys relaxed. It really is a lovely bay, perfect for easy swimming, fun activities and totally kiddie friendly. We were in and out of the water all morning and enjoyed beer and fruit shakes in between. When we were starting to feel crispy we decided to head back to the hotel. We then caught a taxi into Phuket town which was an interesting 30 minute drive. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the town and all that makes Thai towns so unique.
Our destination was Central which we were told was the best spot to find electronics and other present options. Central is a mall with four floors and lots of up market type of stores and stalls inside it. The shops are very modern and the set up is similar to our malls back home however there is a still a distinct Asian flavour. We enjoyed a quick lunch at one of the delis and then started walking around. It's always fun seeing what products are offered in other countries and we took 2 hours to walk the mall buying a few hoodies here and there. We then hopped back into the taxi and headed back to the hotel. After a little rest we decided to take a walk to look for a proper Thai restaurant for the folks last dinner with us.
Yay, the spot we found was perfect and we over indulged on curry, spicy salads, soups and Pad Thai. Delicious. The Thais running the restaurant were also lots of fun so it was a great way to end the day. We all can't believe that the folks holiday is almost over and are feeling sad and happy all at once. We've had an amazing time together and are looking forward to enjoying tomorrow together before saying good bye.
