After landing we had to take our visa and other process, due to some reason it was not crowded much so we decided to go for free visa approval line and the whole process took an hour. The fun part was that our whole flight was filled with gujjus (Gujarati) so we could not feel for a long time that we were out of India .... Lol jokes apart !!
After visa process we tried to find the cheapest mode to commute to our pre booked hotel at Patong beach..., So after all the discussion between four of us , the best way was private cab which cost 800 baht.
After reaching to our hotel, we had ample of time before check in so we changed and immediately headed towards Patong beach and after 2 hours we came and checked in and met one tourist guide in the hotel only, who gave us 3 days offer - 1st day was for half day tour because the tour either starts at 7.30 am in the morning or 1.30 pm as half day tour. So for 1st day we chose to go for half day citi visit tour where they had covered many tourist spot
1. Tambon Caron
2. Tambon Rawai
3. Big Buddha
4. Laung pho chaem road
5. Diamond museum
6. Cashewnut factory
The last visit was night Saturday market. There were some more places but I can't recollect. (Tip : If you are a person not in the habit of total exertion, then don't start immediately, because you may get sick or drained because that is what happened with two of my friends, as we did not take enough rest before starting our local site seeing)
Out of 4, 2 fell little sick so I and one of my friend who accompanied me and went for massage 😉 (it's like kind off mandatory activity, if you are in Thailand and did not try massages their) after the massage a glass of wine in hot Jacuzzi was the best therapy to relax your two day travel tiredness and our second day of the trip ended.
