So I started from Kolkata and Abbas started from Dubai and we met at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International airport. We then had to take a cab to the local airport, Don Meuang International Airport, from where we got very reasonably cheap Air Asia tickets to fly to Phuket, (costing us approximately 3000 Bahts) up and down. However, we had a reasonable gap of 4 hours between our two flights, keeping in mind that the two airports are at a 1-1.5 hour away. One of my local friends had told me that there is no Sky train connecting the two airports, and it would be best to take a cab and ask the driver to take the highway to avoid Bangkok’s super heavy traffic, even though we would have to pay extra road tax (135 Baht). Also, it must be advised to not carry luggage in excess of 15 kg as it costs 250 baht per extra kg.
We landed at Phuket International Airport, located 32 Km north of the main city, and headed straight to Patong through airport buses costing us 400 bahts, taking almost about an hour. I would start off by telling you things which we didn't manage to visit and are hence definitely recommended. The town of Phuket had a quiet feel about it with interesting Sino-Portuguese architecture giving it a colorful bliss. Although a lot of the tourists (including us) never step a foot in the town, but it is what gives you the real feel of actual Thai culture with beautiful temples of Buddha (Wat Chalong being the most important one) and the famous Big Buddha Phuket which I have huge regrets about missing out on. Other important attractions in the town that one must get hold of are Laem Phromthep, a popular spot for watching the sun set over the Andaman Sea, Elephant Nature Park, dedicated to saving elephants, P.P. Birds' NestMuseums and a number of elegantly built shrines.
