Today we arrived in Phuket after leaving Phi Phi Island behind. Spent the morning sunbaking by the pool. Met a nice group of British tourists who had just come from Phuket and who were travelling to Australia after Thailand. We then said goodbye to our hotel and boarded the ferry back to Phuket pier. After another 2 and a half hour boat ride we caught a bus to our hotel which took another hour but we finally got there. The hotel is really nice (Comfort Resort)and our room is extremely spacious. We are basically right on the beach - only a road seperates us and we have a view of the beach from our balcony.
We went out to dinner and had some excellent thai food. Went to bed realtively early tonight as we were so tired from all the moving about. There a heaps of shops near us but we will try our bargaining skills out tomorrow. Tomorrow we will go exploring and hopefully find a few bargains!. Went out for a drink but we seemed to be the only ones under 30 there so our night ended pretty early.
