this is one of my most memorable cities of thailand and one can do a great deal here. the city has got a lot of detail.arriving at the bus station one is accosted by a lot of private taxi drivers and stuff but we got ourselves exhused since we didnt have any money(LOLZ) we just travelled on the big open taxis which are cheap.
anyways stayin at patong beach in patong inn was a good experience . the place was clean and not smelly and reasonbaly priced besides being just on the beach. other than goin to the beach i also indulged in go karting in phuket they have an internaional standard track there. besides bungee jumpin could be attempted which is reasonably priced. i got a motor bike rented so it was easy to go to different places and thus it was much cheaper the travellin since the distances between places can be huge. the main city doesnt have a lot to offer but the beach area compensates it. there is this huge market along the beach i mean patong beach where they have amazing things to sell but pls evyone you have to be on your toes coz the stuff they sel is knowcked down and initialll they demand a lot of money. i bought a wooden table with some carving on it and the lady started with 4000 bhat but ended up givin to me for 400 bhat i initially started with 100 bhat ( the look on her face was of amazement and i was chuckling as well)!!! and she was of indian descent. so meanin you can get amazin deals just dont think of sayin half of what they ask coz they will immediately ask you to buy the stuff
the beach has a lot to offer from jet skis, to paraglidin to the banana ride all of them are a treat.
