Surprise! We are in Thailand!

20130119-113140.jpgWe made it to our final destination… Phuket, Thailand. Sawatdee!! Hello

Woke up to a 90 degree weather, nice light breeze and a huge beach…

Taking a cab from the airport was an experience in itself; the chaos of tourists ripe for picking by the smart locals is a scene. So stay on course to go and just get in line for Taxi Meter. Don’t talk to hawkers who will try to bargain with you unless you mean it an you can drive a hard bargain.

Let the exchange rate sink in… last night our first dinner here was a large plate of fresh grilled seafood and veggies for two – it was amazing. We paid 500 Baht which is about $17 USD. Hard to believe…

Activities for today will include a Thai massage and fully exploring the Andaman sea.

  1. Sawasdee ka…I hope you enjoy Thailand. Interesting blog you have and I just hit it right when you are in my home country. Don’t miss the national favorite dish there “Kao Kaprow Kai Ra Berd” Or stir-fried meat with holy basil leave and top with fried egg!
    Khob-Koon naka for blogging about my beloved country.
