Place 28 – Day 1: Karon 🇹🇭 – Free Double Upgrade!


We had a taxi booked for 11:30, so we had a bit of time. We needed to shower and have breakfast as well as pack away the last few things. 

We got all we needed to pack packed and then got in the taxi. The taxi got us there pretty fast so we had a bit of time to kill, but we were able to check our bags whenever we wanted so we did that as soon as we could! 

We went upstairs in the airport to get some food as we were unsure what was through in the departure area, especially as it was domestic and remembering our past experiences it made way more sense to just get something there and then. We got a subway which was actually the same price as it is on the street which is odd! 

We went through security which was very easy and no effort at all. 

We then went to the departure area and relaxed there for a bit and played some UNO & Monopoly Deal. 

We went to board, queued up and all, but it turned out to be the wrong flight! Ours was the next and in just 20 minutes so not a big deal. 

We finally got on a plane and it was about 1 hour of flight time before we landed in Phuket. 

We are still in Thailand, but now on a nice island. We are in the bottom part near a lot of beaches, which is nice! 

We got a pickup to get to our hotel and this took a long time from the airport due to rush hour traffic. 

We finally got to the hotel and it is beautiful! We had to get a golf cart to get to the other part of the hotel where our room was. We have been given what seems to be a double upgrade which is amazing! We are here for a few days only for Curtis’ birthday, so we got somewhere a little nicer! We have a sofa in our room and a huge balcony with an incredible view! 

Desk and a sofa!
Fancy bathroom

Contraption next to the bed for the aircon and lights!

We looked up some places for food and there was a very well rated Thai cheap place just 3 minutes walk from the hotel so to there we went! We got free fruit & garlic bread, too! Kim had a panang curry and Curtis had phad See-Ew. Both were tasty and the free stuff was welcome! 

Now we are back in our room chilling and waiting for the morning where we can sit on the balcony and look at our incredible view in the day time! There is meant to be a storm over the next few days apparently, but we have a couple of swimming pools so no problem there..
