Phuket (Thailand) March 2001
Phuket is another nice place in Thailand. It can be a bit
too 'touristic' for my taste though. I get a little stressed when too
many people try to sell things (or themselves) to me all the time. I
stayed on Kata Beach which is still not as crazy as the infamous
Patong Beach which is one of the worse places I've been to in
Thailand so far. If you are a guy and feel a desperate need for company
then go to Patong beach. You will not be lonely for long.
In Phuket I had company by my friends Olle and Vannessa. Then they
went on to Krabi and I went to Phi-Phi
Islands. We played a lot of pool and we rented bikes and went on
sightseeing across Phuket. The best with Phuket is that you can easily
leave and go to other nice places like Phi-Phi
Islands or Similan Islands. I went to
both these places for some snorkling and diving.
