This is our 3rd visit to Patong Beach and we have been here now for 3 days and there is about 1/4 the amount of people as there normaly is for this time of year!!!
The locals say that many people have been scared off by the protests and i am sure thats true but there realy is no sign of anything unusual except for the ammount of people. We toured around yesterday and spent time in Phuket town and still nothing is happening there either.
We are having a ball, the weather is very hot and we have had 2 sunny days and one overcast with a little rain.
We ate at Nickys Handle Bar last night (Thanks Cathy & Tiff) and i can't belive we have never been there before, we have a great feed and a few drinks and Nicky even shouted us a couple of drinks ( great guy).
We have had a few sessions at the Quokka Bar already and when David, Gai & Elle found out we were here they came to meet with us even though they are on holidays and off to Bali today. A great night was had by all and they are such wonderfull people.
For anyone that has cancelled or is thinking about canceling becasue of what has happened i urge to to reconsider so these beautiful don't have to suffer any more loss. Life is as usual here.....
