I booked a tour for the day to take me around town. First stop was Karon viewpoint....Karon Beach, Kata Beach, and Kata Noi (baby)
Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the island's most important landmarks on the island. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 metres tall, it is easily seen from far away. The site has the best 360-degree views of the island of Phuket Town, Kata, Karon beaches, Chalong Bay and more.
I cut the tour short because I didn't feel too well. I spent the rest of the day at the pool.
It rained hard all night...finally stopped after breakfast so I decided today was a great day to see Old Phuket Town. I hired a tuk tuk and headed out.
Crazy hair from the tuk tuk ride.
The tuk tuk driver dropped me off on Thalang Road the main central street of Phuket’s Old Town. This narrow boulevard is studded with lots of attractions, great shops, a mix of restaurants, several small guesthouses. All set in beautiful Sino-Portuguese architecture which makes Phuket Town so beautiful. As well as being one of the oldest streets in Phuket, it remains one of the busiest. It is still a major route for road traffic, except for on Sunday evenings when it becomes Phuket’s own Walking Street Market.
Found some great art on the side of buildings
Started to,rain on the way back
I headed to the beach for the rest of the day. Headed back before the rain storm started again.
So tonight is my last night in Thailand. I absolutely loved Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta....Lanta is definitely my favourite place and I would love to go back one day, Krabi and Phuket are just too busy for me. I found so many Europeans travelling in Thailand...especially Russians. Loved that I had a chance to meet up with Tira, Glenn and family....funny we had to meet in Thailand for dinner. I'm off to Denpasar, Bali tomorrow.
