We explored Phuket market (our shopping spree had begun!), Jungceylon Mall (don't miss this huge mall!), Walking street (safe and full of firangs!), Patong Beach (loved the beach vibes!) and our nightlife at Famous Roof top bar was not the one to miss! They have various parties like foam party, bubbles party etc. They offer free champagne to ladies from 12am-1am! This club is very different from Seduction or Tiger's Pub on Walking street in Phuket. We visited many clubs on Walking Street in Phuket! We truly had amazing time in Phuket without any inhibitions or fear of being judged. We enjoyed it just the day we wanted to! One of the best nightlife it has! We also did ATV Riding, visited Wat Phra Nang Sang Buddhist Temple etc.We went to Phi Phi Islands to snorkel in the sea by a ferry which took 2 hours to reach the island, on our Day 2 in Phuket. The ferry ride was fun. The Phi Phi Island beach was too good, very picturesque. Straight out of a movie kinda beach. Blue skies, white sand, blue waters! We took lot of pictures at Ao Tonsai Pier where we landed from ferry. The beach at the pier called as Ko Phi Phi Don is a beach that shouldn't be missed. This hotel pick up and drop day tour can be arranged from Phuket itself and is worth a single dime! You can bargain if you are in big group.Skip Pattaya by all means. Pattaya is strictly for boys/men who come to Thailand for their type of fun. Alcazar show in Pattaya is good, but it can be seen on YouTube too! Walking Street was just meh. Too many cheap people and loads of staring eyes, unlike Phuket! We regretted coming to Pattaya and only wished if we could have instead hopped on to Krabi or Koh Samui Island, nevertheless, there's always the next time!Think twice before you want to click your pictures with fancy dressed ladies (trans-gender or She-males actually!). Every picture clicked with them is charged. Even when you go to ping-pong shows, don't indulge yourself into any activity even if model approaches you. At the end you may realize, you could have coughed up hundreds of baths just to hold a balloon :P (just the way I had to..#@#!#)We had the gala time in Phuket. It is like a paradise. It had awesome nightlife! Most of the times, in clubs or bars, I, and my friend would be the only Indians with the rest of the firangs! There was no awkwardness when we went into ping-pong shows in Phuket but in Pattaya, we were literally stalked!
Much more spectacular than Phuket or Pattaya ... Still very virgin. Must travel around to see Railey Beach and Maya Bay. Hot Water Springs, The Emerald Lake and Blue Lake are sheerly hidden treasures of Krabi. Certainly a treat for anyone who loves nature and peace!
Here I was at the Sea Farm Model Royal Project, gazing in disbelief at the massive eels, salt pans and freshly-prepared spa salt. Then came the moment of truth, when I was told to taste the fresh sea weed.
Koh Libong is the perfect antidote to the more popular Thai islands. At only 35km2 there isn’t much ground to cover here, but the island still offers an abundance of gorgeous natural scenery and wildlife. In fact, this island is one of the few places where you can spot the rare sea mammal the dugong (often referred to as a sea cow) in its natural habitat. Accommodation is sparse but what they do have is environmentally friendly and has been built with respect for its surroundings. If you want to feel like the only farang on the island then Koh Libong should be right up your street.
