3D 2N Patong Beach, Phuket, Thailand TripWe went to Phuket, Thailand in late March 2012 for 3 days 2 nights. It was a trip with mixed experience, hence, we didn’t really feel like it was a holiday.
It wasn’t sunshine all day long like our Queensland trip even though February to April is typically a dry season in Phuket. Unexpectedly, there were downpours the two evenings we were there.
Furthermore, the experience was further made worse by the touts which never stopped soliciting from the airport to the streets of Patong and even at the beach!
Here’s the short roundup of the trip: -
Day 1 (Monday)
After arriving in Phuket, we took a cab to Jungceylon for our first meal in Phuket at McDonald’s. Although the flight took less than 2 hours from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; it was another one hour journey from Phuket International Airport to Patong.
After some light shopping and strolling of the mall, we checked in to our hotel at Courtyard by Marriott Phuket at Patong Beach.
