Phuket Getaway - Down South [Part 6]

25 April 2011 @ Phuket, Thailand

Our third day in Phuket was a dry day. We hired the same taxi driver, Mr Jimmy to take us around Phuket Island for a city tour.

Breakfast - Egg, Pineapple Fried Rice, Pad Thai, Ham and Pork Bacon!

We woke up slightly later than the day before as we wanted to have more rest after a tiring long day. Jimmy picked us up from the hotel at around 9.30am.

We headed down south and the first place we stop at was Kata Beach. It's less crowded compared to Patong beach. It'd be a good place if you prefer more privacy.

kinda like this candid shot

Crazy ideas come by when you put crazy people together... We started doing jumping shots all four of us together, but FAILED. So we gotta take turns to click on the camera.

The sun was unbearably hot at that time, we quickly got into the car to move on to the next stop - Karon View Point.

Karon View Point is sitting high up on a hill. *duh* And both Karon and Kata beaches were clearly visible from up there. The panorama is just amazing.

We didn't stay there for long as there were few more places in our list that we wanted to visit. Further down South we went to the Southern-most point of Phuket Island - Laem Promthep (Promthep Cape) at Rawai District.

There was a flight of stairs to climb up before we could see anything. Once you reach the top, you'll see some statues, a lighthouse and more roads that will eventually lead you to the tip of the island (I guess).

Lighthouse and a memorial

We went into the lighthouse to check it out. It was the nicest thing on earth... because the place was air-conditioned! Ah~~

It's like a little lighthouse museum in there, displaying all sorts of exhibits. And they also sell little souvenirs in there.

all sizes of bulbs

We stayed in there for some time to cool ourselves down before heading to the biggest attraction in town. More on my City Tour will be updated next! Billy, out.
