Flight from Bangkok to Phuket today, we ended up arriving in Phuket at about 6:30pm and were then trasnferred to  our resot in Patong Beach.

Our resort is GORGEOUS! We stayed at the Banthai Resort, and it's breathtaking. It is right near the beach (not that you can see the beach, but you just walk out across the road and you're there). Staff could be a little more friendly at times, but apart from that - it's LOVE!

We were all tired but thought we must make it out to the main street of goings on here in Patong Beach. Well... it was an experience to say the least! We were looking around everywhere so unfortunly made it pretty obvious we hadn't been here before so we had a lot of people come up and shake our hands and try to make conversation just so they could try to get us to come into their shops and sell us stuff. REALLY really annoying. People with lizards, lady-boys, whores, boxers, lights, music - it's all happening on this little yet busy street. It reminded me of a circus to be honest but it was pretty cool thinking back on it. At the time we were all pretty pissed off with the amount of people annoying us, they would just come up to Nathan mostly and hold his hand like he was shaking it and say "Hello my friend, where are you from?" etc and kept holding his hand, whil we're all saying "No, nothing please!" They really get on your nerves. We got over it all in a few days.
