Its night out here in Bang Tao. The dark blue night sky is awash with white stars, and dark grey clouds against the dark mountains in the distance.
Its been a whirlwind of a trip, much awaited and looked forward to. I’ve fallen in love with Phuket, and I do believe it represents the best of Thailand, in terms of experiences with food, the beaches and the spirit of the people.
Here are some of the best photos of the trip:
My beloved bike on which I roamed all over Phuket. At 250 baht (INR 500 or US$ 8) day, it was an awesome deal, thanks to Khan and Katy at Bang Tao Kitchen. Tip: Always negotiate on the bike rates, especially if you are travelling with 2 or more people.
Every place has got a street food stall, and for 10-30 Baht (INR 20 or US$ .30), you can get some pretty delicious soya sauce dripping goodies.
Partying at Surin Beach.
Experiencing the famous Thai massage.
Tip: Bargain for the massages as well, and you can usually get a 100-200 Baht cheaper, especially if 2 or more people are getting massages at the same time.
Seeing the famous Ladyboys at Patong Walking Street, Phuket.
Eating grasshoppers in Bangkok!
Having delicious Pad Thai, my most favourite dish in Thailand.
My favourite picture of the beautiful Thai landscape; took this while biking on the road.
But the absolute best part was getting to chill with some of my best friends.
Will definitely recommend going to Thailand for a vacation. It provides a glorious experience, and its pretty easy to get around.
I’m inclined to post a special how to guide for people looking to party and chill in Thailand, especially on a budget :).
