There is a certain amount of fun in planning out your own itineraries. You can choose what you want to do, where you want to stay, what you want to eat and most importantly how you want to go about doing these things. Let me tell you, first of all it saves a lot of cost, if it is compared to the trip planned out with a travel agency and secondly, you don't have to be dependent on them for your own trip. Phuket 2016 was one such trip which had no planning whatsoever except the flight tickets from Kolkata to Phuket via Bangkok and hostel reservations. It was the first occasion where I relied much more on my spontneous planning skills and that of my extremely annoying but travel-seeking friend Abbas Juzer, who apparently had to spend double the amount on flight tickets coming from Dubai. This was supposedly our stress buster trip after being completely saturated at our corporate jobs and our only objective was to relax, explore, party and have a whole lot of fun. "Two bacheors, Phuket, Thailand, fun", sound fishy eh? You are left to your own imaginations in trying to interpret what that means :P

The craziest and costliest part of Phuket (and maybe all Thailand). The infamous Bangla Road and areas around never really sleep. They only black out ;) .

After doing a lot of research work we finally decided to put up in Ao nang Villa Resort. First day was spent exploring the lively town of Ao Nang and soaking its relaxed atmosphere. We strolled and relaxed over the Ao Nang beach and were in awe with that beautiful picturesque white sand and limestone cliffs beach view.
