Asia > Thailand > Phuket > Patong

Thailand is the best country when it comes to offer a variety of places, temples, beaches... One of them is Phuket. I never imagined that I'll be able to see the beauty of Phuket. I booked my flight from Manila to Bangkok. then flew again to Phuket. And almost two hours later, I arrived at Phuket International Airport.

Note that inside the airport at the exit door there are a lot of cab men or taxi men offering a cab, taxi or van. The best option is a joiners van, it's cheaper and safer. If you take a taxi it will cost you around 1500 baht... Not cheap, not wise. Joiners van cost you only *150 bah*t or 200 baht. Check the difference and make sure it's the cheaper way.

This joiners van will take you to Patong. Make sure you booked your hotels or room, although for all we know DIY is always something new to us so yes! Around patong area there are a lot of motels hotels, airbnb, etc. You can choose. I stayed at Bayshore hotel not cheap but it's very quite have pool so clean nice view on top.

Transportation is really easy, they have cab, taxi everywhere and motorcycle for only 25baht so cheap. But for me it's best to walk so I can enjoy the view on every streets of Patong.

Food? They have all the food you want, they have seafoods, italian, café, night life all the things about leisure. Malls also have restaurants and you can also buy some souvenirs, clothes, swimsuits...

Tours? When you walk around Patong area or by the streets you can see boots that offer tours to Phiphi island, banana island, monkey island, Phuket.

Folks, you can enjoy a week or 5 days in Phuket, you can make a tour on a sanctuary to see elephant. well that's another 1 day you better booked when you arrived at your place. It cost like 2500baht/2800 per pax. It will take 2 hours so make sure you wake up early as possible. I didn't make it to my tour but i will next time. This is the Sanctuary that you can see the elephants around Phuket. This could help you to book a tour to see this amazing creature.

Take note guys, when you go to a tour make sure you wake up early and ready your things. Don't forget to bring an extra shirt, sunscreen, sunglasses, extra money, ID or passport would be okay too. Camera or GoPro, make sure you bring all the stuff with you. Wake up early pack your thing, coffee and ready yourself!!
