After months of planning, I with my wife travelled to Thailand for our wedding anniversary. Well it was our first international trip and we were quite excited:) Our flight from Chennai landed at DMK Airport Bangkok @ 4 am local time. It took around 2 hours for us for Visa on Arrival as airport was flooded by tourists. We had our flight to Phuket @ 8 am. When we were about to reach Phuket,we saw so many beautiful islands below from our flight window. We reached Phuket @ 9:30 am. We took mini van which drops you at your hotel.
We stayed for 3N/4D @ Amici Miei Hotel,Phuket. The location was extremely good and was near to bangla road, patong beach and shopping centre. The staffs were helpful and friendly too.After relaxing a bit we went to explore nearby area for the remaining day. To our surprise the famous Jungceylon Mall, Banzaan Fresh Market and Bangla Street were very close . We roamed around Markets and Mall. Outside Banzaan Fresh Market there are lots of street food available, but for vegetarians very less options (infact only coconut ice cream and fruits). It's best place for sea food lovers and BBQ meat eaters. In the evening we went to Patong Beach , relaxed a bit there and then enjoyed the Bangla Road. This place was crazy and insane, as they say Bangla awakens when the sun sets. It was full of bars , ladies dancing on poles and shops. You can also enjoy live musical performances by artists/bands , Street Performers , Jugglers.
There are many options for street shopping as well. This ends our first day in Phuket!
