Rain on Phuket
Few hour by boat from Krabi is Phuket - a place where we decidec to dive in polish divers school.(Diving Scool)
It was raining during all journey  to Phuket. We were on big boat which take tourist from one place to another.
I read the "Rio anaconda" written by Wojciech Cejrowski all the time. I had to move many times because sometimes rain tailed off and after a while it started heavily fell down.

When we came to the Phuket it was evening. We took a room in the hostel near the roundabout in the old city.
We paid 380 BHT fora dumb FAN room. It was average price, the hostel had shared bathroom, very clean, but rooms without windows are too depressive.  

Near the centre there is a night market with food.
On the boat to Phuket
Do not choose the food service with menu because they are much more expensive. Go to the typical where you show by your fingers what you want. Do not try sea food in Thailand - it is not so good prepared as in Europe - it is better to taste the typical Thai food. Take what Thais eat.

We went early sleep because we had an appointment with Gosia from diving school. She picked us up to her house where other diving students waited for her. We met 4 people from Poland (the young one who started to travel after finishing studies), one polish instructor,2 other guys who were travelling around Asia ( from Turkey where they bought motorbikes, India, Nepal  etc.).

Next day we took a room on ON ON Hostel in the Old Town (the cheapest hostel on Phuket), because there stayed our friends from diving school. With one guy - Adam - we decided on a trip to PHANG- NGA by boats and canoe. See my reviews.

Phuket Hotels & Accommodations review
The cheapest hotel on Phuket
It is one of the cheapest hotels on Phuket. Probably because it is in the town and it is kept by Chinese people or Thai people with Chinese roots. … read entire review
