After our adventures in Bangkok, Annie and I wanted to have a little rest from all the hussle and bussle from the big city. We landed in Phuket which is in the southern tip of Thailand. It was a bit overcast but the temperature was still hot and muggy. We stayed in Karon Beach which is a little bit more low key than the more infamous Patong Beach. During our 3 day stay we were able to bask in the little sun that there was on the marine blue beach and roam around the small beach town. We were surprised to see so many European's while we were there. There were many visitors coming from Sweden and Germany. The mixture of Danish-Thai food was also very curious to see. Overall, Phuket is a beautiful city with many beaches and activities. There were not so many iconic things to see so it made it easy for us to just chill and take it easy. The only thing that gave us a bit of trouble was the bug bites and the taxi scams. We made it this far without any major bug bites but when we were in Karon we were eaten up by the local mosquito's. After our last night, Annie and I looked that human dart boards....OUCH. By the way for anyone going to Phuket, there are public buses that take you around town. It is just hard to find them. We had trouble finding them and we got ripped off by the local taxis services. Anyways, we are off to KL Malaysia as our next stop.
