Phuket

THAILAND | Wednesday, 6 May 2009 | Views [271]

After a long flight, long wait in Hong Kong airport, flight to Phuket (where I passed time pretending to cough and watching peopel freak out in paranoia about swine flu spreading), customs, swine flu screening etc I finally arrived in Phuket and caught a bus to Patong, the main beach. Patong is a total hole! I mean a total hole! Really trashy, so i passed my time by checking into a cheap hotel, drinking cheap beer and trying to avoid the screams of "tuk tuk, taxi, ama yopu want taxi, chocolate, cigarettes, beer, lady boy". After hours of sleeping in especially designed worlds most uncomfortable seats thanks very much Cathay Pacific, it was heavenly to sleep horizontally. Next morning Team trouble were reunited when I Aelx caught the early morning ferry from Phi phi to meet me and now the fun will really begin...
