Arriving in Phuket, Thailand was so exciting! When we finally got out of the airport (the customs took forever) we got in the bus and headed to our beautiful resort 'Katathani Phuket Beach Resort'. The drive to the resort was eye opening to say the least. We drove through all of the shanty towns and saw the REAL side of Phuket that you don't see on the internet. The electrical wiring was all tangled and really crazy to see. It was really sad to see all the people selling things from their front yards and the lives that these people live.
When we finally arrived at the hotel after a long plain flight and drive it was wonderful to be greeted with cold towels and lychee juice. The resort was BEAUTIFUL! There were stunning pools and beautiful facilities and our room was lovely. It was a real tropical paradise! We had our own beach and were only a short walk away from some restaurants and shops. We were about a twenty minute tuk tuk ride away from Patong and Kata beach. It was good to be a bit away from all of the action as the town was WILD as you will read about in one of my next blog posts! We had a nice dinner not far from the resort and a much needed quiet night in.
Stay tuned for more Phuket adventures.
