We got an AC van to Phuket, luckily we got the front seats so we were pretty comfortable. The journey took us about 3 hours. Our resort in Karon Phuket is a shock to the system after our bungalow in Krabi. It had a massive long drive, GARDENERS, and we were greeted at the entrance and escorted to a comfy booth where we sipped on juice upon arrival. Our resort has the perfect location, you can’t get any closer to the beach! I love our room and it’s great to get free stuff in the bathroom because it means I don’t have to go out and buy any toiletries. We’re on the 2nd floor and can see the beach from our balcony. After settling in we swam around in the FIVE SWIMMING POOLS and swam up to the bar in the middle of one of the pools! I love this place!
After a shower (oh my goodness the shower pressure is heaven) we caught a tuk tuk to the temple market. The tuk tuks arn’t as cute looking down here (they’re little red vans). They had some pretty cheap stuff there. P.S. tuk tuk prices here are ridiculously stupid. I bought some cheap nail polish. We walked back from the market which took quite a while. On the way back we found some markets in Karon. I find it really annoying when you try to look at something when you have shop owners breathing down your neck.
