Saturday 2 April at 1.30 we flew from OR Tambo to Bankok, Thailand. We landed early on Sunday morning their time... they are 5 hours ahead of us. We then caught a connecting flight to Phuket.
First sightings of Thailand from the air.... so cool.
We were picked up at the airport and transported to the hotel by one of these pimped up taxi's, the boys were in their element with these vehicles. About a 30 - 40 minute drive.
This is the entrance walkway to our hotel. This was my third trip to Phuket and we have always stayed at the Patong Beach Hotel. It is right in the center of everything, right across the road from the beach and just a really nice hotel.
This was the view from our balcony up on the 8th floor. Just stunning.
First on the agenda was a long cool cocktail by the pool.
And then down to the beach.
