21st May 2019
Day 1

So this time I planned my trip for phuket and Singapore. This was my 3rd honeymoon international trip and 1st anniversary celebration. My flight timings were 11-30 pm on 20th May.
I booked flights via Air Asia @ 7500 p.p and got my visa through musafir.com @ 1900 p.p.
Tip - Don't get visa from musafir they had very poor service. Also they got spelling error in name which made us anxious regarding immigration.

After all the hustles of check-in finally I had my dinner at plaza premium lounge.

Day 2

The next day we had layover for 5 hours @ Kuala Lumpur. I had my breakfast@ airport through diner's club lounge access. We finally reached Phuket @ 1p.m

There was no problem in immigration even though there was spelling mistake in the name. Tip- If you can spare time opt for visa on arrival as it's free till 31st October otherwise opt for e-visa. I booked my son card through klook @350 and cab for 650 p.p. However one can get this at relatively low prices at the airport

We booked tickets for wake up club @ 500 baht from a local shop. Wake up club is a must watch adult show and is approximately 1 hour show. The prices on klook are higher so it's recommended to book from local shop.
