Arrival into Thailand!

If you are thinking of going to Thailand.....I have one word: GO! Beautiful Beaches, Friendly Faces...and best of All your money goes far!

There are many places to stay in Phuket. We choose Patang Beach. The main strip is lined with shops galore. Lots of tailor shops to have a dress or suit tailor-made. My boyfriend had a gorgeous lined suit made in less than 2 days for under $100.00 US! Be prepared to bargain with the Thais. They are hard-working and polite people and bargaining with a sense of humor reaps the best results we found.
We stayed at Boa Baan Resort Hotel, it was a great location, clean and very appealing with a swimming pool flanked with elephant statues with water flowing from the trunks. The price {off-season} was incredible at approx. $30 US which included breakfast!
All the hotels and shops are located across the street from the beach. Patong Beach has everything from massages on the beach, approx. $7 US {get one everyday!} colds drinks, fresh fruit, ice cream and souvineers come right to you via the friendly local vendors.
Longtail boats will take you to Phi Phi Islands to explore and take in the tranquil beauty that is Southern Thailand.
