My first holiday trip in Thailand – Day One Free and Easy
4-7 Jan 2013: Yee pee, a terrific holiday again! This time round, I went for a holiday at my neighborhood country – Thailand, for a free and easy tour. This holiday tour was a lovely Christmas gift from Mr Federico, my beloved and adorable partner.
You must be surprised that I go as far as to Europe country, but not even Thailand or Singapore! Well, guess depends with who and at the most suitable time for a lovely trip! If you ask me to travel alone, no way! Way too boring!
4 Jan 2013 - So we decided to go to Phuket, Thailand with Federico’s best friend, Danielle. We booked Tune Hotel and I must say, thumbs up for Tune Hotel, as the hotel is clean, tidy and affordable price.

Bear in mind that we were there during peak seasons, even the motels, or any backpacker hotels are charging like a four-star hotel price!
Thailand is really full of tourists. You can see almost half of the crowd are foreigners and travelers, guess they love the sunshine in Thailand!
What I don’t really like is the things or souvenirs are being marked up at an unreasonable price due to the high traffic of holiday tourists. Some of the locals even doubled up the original price, especially the tour packages. I believe if you do not ask for a discount, they will just charge you the most expensive price they willing to charge you. You need to be real professional to bargain for the lowest deals.
We stopped by at one of the outdoor bars - Nina Kangaroo Bar, which is located at one whole stretch of road full of mini bars.
Nina: 080 461 3796, address: Patong OTOP shopping paradise, Rat-U-Thit 200 pee Rd. , Patong Kathu Phuket 83150
Well, all bars are just the same, somehow, we feel comfortable to hang out at this bar, where we visited the same old bar everyday.
As for the Thailand food, the price more or less will be the same, but of course, restaurants will be charging higher than the food stalls by the street. Street food pictures? There you go:
(All Thailand food are spicy and hot, drink lots of water or beer if you can't stand the heat and spicy flavours!)
|Salted BBQ fish|
|You can find this anywhere! Cho cho food stalls on the road!|
|Uncle prepares pork noodle soup... (50 thai bhat)|
|Tiny flat noodles/ kuey teow with pork slices, pork ball, dumpling, and vegetables|
|Aunty is preparing Thailand salad|
|Mini crab will be served with the salad....crunchy and crispy!|
|Slices of mango, cucumber, tomatoes, peanut and spicy chilies (50 thai bhat)|
Well, to your surprise, not all restaurants are necessary hygiene, and later let me tell you my tale of the ‘disaster’ happened to me on this trip.
So here are some amazing photos I had taken for my first day in Phuket, Thailand:

And then, we passed by this famous restaurant:
|This is packed! wonder why? we didn't manage to go in though...|
Oh la la, in Bangla street, where all the pubs, bars, and nightclubs were located at here, we went for the famous Ping Pong show, sexy transgender dance show (they are gorgeous), strip dance, girl using their private parts to do some skills, like puffing ciggarette, opening a soft drink can, putting string, pin and needles in their private parts, controlling a pen and write words, pushing a banana, insert a pin and aim at balloons and shooting at the balloons...this is really fun! Of course, no photos are allowed, so you have to be there to see these with your own eyes!
