Phuket - Thailand

Fly with Malaysia Airline System (MAS) KLIA- Phuket- KLIA = RM350++** (promotion price)

Me so can't wait to reach Phuket ..

Teerak is filling in the immigration form before going on board
Phuket: gorgeous people, gorgeous culture, gorgeous scenery, gorgeous beach, gorgeous in everything!!! it is so gorgeous until it turned me into a Thai girl.. The local has mistaken me as a Thai girl, SHOULD i blame my tan skin!!
Narak!! Why you look so serious?? <<>.. couldn't decide which offers to take..HELP ME! HELP ME!

Me and my beloved Teerak, took a flight from KLIA to Phuket on that lovely 11th Dec 08 . it was 1 1/2 journey. not that tiring as we were so excited to land on that land of smile.

Once we arrived at Phuket Airport, we were ambushed by the travel agent. the travel agent seems friendly at first but after a while they have turned into monsters.. hunger for customer.. they offered bundle of packages, which they said “CHEAP OFFER ONLY FOR TODAY!!!”. but still- in phuket “cheap offer” is almost everyday-esp to the tourist, as teerak wants us to look for the hotel ourselves at patong, with hope we can get it cheaper there. we then took a cab to patong beach which cost us THB550.

it took about 45 minutes journey from the Phuket airport to Patong. again, we met another travel agent as the taxi driver stopped by at the roadside. which i believe, that travel agent must have got connection with the taxi driver- and i bet the taxi driver has purposely stopped by at the travel agent office. her offer sounds great but still me and teerak have set our mind to look for the hotel room ourselves at Patong.we were looking forward to bargain for the room!! (^o^)/”

The Andaman Resortel, Patong

After an hour walking under the hot sunny day looking and searching for a hotel room which is within our budget, we finally found one which was the ANDAMAN RESORTEL, a few meters from the bangla road and 300 meters from the beach. The room cost us THB1000 per night. We were offered THB1500 per night inclusive 2 breakfasts, after bargained and bargained with the receptionist, i managed to get the room (superior room - single bed - hot and cold shower with bathtub-aircond-mini bar-) for THB1000 per night. they also provide other facilities such as internet, free parking, travel desk, bar and restaurant. we stayed at the andaman resortel for 4 nights, and it was a welcoming hotel room i would say. just imagine you can have a warm “sawasdee” awaits you in the tradition of true Thai hospitality once you’re back from your tiring trip to the islands, safari, and etc.huhuhu, me likey (^o^)

From the moment i entered the lobby we were greeted by the friendly staffs (that explains why, thai is known as the “LAND OF SMILE”).
