Phuket's Log: Summary | Day1 | Day2 | Day3 | Day4


Day 1 (05 February, Thursday)

0630hrs: Onboard Tiger Airways

Took the 0630hrs flight from Changi Airport Budget Terminal and arrived at Phuket about 2200hrs (Local time). The flight cost us SGD210/pax.


Casa Jip Hotel (Patong)

The 4 of us paid a total of 550B for a cab that took us safely to our pre-booked hotel –Casa Jip (SGD70/night for twin sharing) located near Patong Beach.

We chose the taxi over the local van because the price is rather steep at 150B/pax and what make it worse was the need stop over at various locations which make it a longer journey.

Bangla Road

After checked in, we took a walked down the most happening street of tong –Bangla Road.

Along Bangla road, you can find A GO GO bar, Muay Thai Stadium, Disco and lots of Pubs! A lot of ang mohs love to hang around this road.

Took a local dinner nearby that consists of tom yam gong, some vegetable and chickens and we paid a total bill of about 600B to 700B.

Hung around Bangla Road and found a lot of local Thai girls standing beside the road waiting to start their Free lance “business”.

P/S: Do not have a second glance at them, if not they will think that you are interested in them and approach you!!



Back to our rooms!!
