12 Weeks today :)

I'm getting excited now, 12 weeks today or even better still 44 shifts to work (12hrs shifts)

This will be our 3rd time to Phuket, but after reading lots of reviews, it seems we have missed out on lots, as we tend to spend most of the time diving, so my question; what is a must and what is a miss?

I would say a trip to Surin Beach, lunch on the beach, jumping off the pontoon - simple but so much fun! Also a trip to the temple and the Budda - amazing.

Hi Eileen,

Definitely go see the Big Buddha and Wat Chalong. They're close to one another so make a half-day trip of it.

You also have to take a drive to the south of the island, past Rawaii and go watch the sunset at Promthep Cape. Maybe eat supper at one of the lovely little resaurants in Rawaii on your way back.

We had a fantastic evening one night at Dino Park Mini-Golf (between Karon & Kata beaches). It was definitely worth the 240b.
