I admit that at on first sight I was a little disappointed with the B-Lay Tong. I had not been to Phuket before and I was hoping for something more elegant, more Ibiza like I guess. The lobby was mix of garish and tasteful. It was frustrating because it could so easily be stunning. On the plus side, the pool was fantastic and the rooms were large and comfortable. My opinion on the B-lay Tong changed rapidly though when I saw the other hotels in the Patong area -- most of them were dumps. Patong seems to be the Las Vegas on Phuket, actually, maybe it's the Reno of Phuket, it's not a place of sophisticated elegance. It's a place to get drunk and find cheap sex, and I guess if that's your thing your not looking for elegant. The B-Lay was the best of a bad lot. And as it turns out, I had a lot of fun. Getting drunk helped. I passed on the cheap sex though, but it took some work, you can't walk two feet without being propositioned by a lady or lady boy. There are not enough antibiotic in Thailand for that. Some of those Lady boys though... you would have no idea.
