Phuket... Again

Round 2

We got to Phuket at 6pm after a long day of traveling. After getting to the hotel we went to meet up with our friend Daniella, who we hung out with in Bangkok. It was great to see her again after about 2 and a half weeks apart. We caught up over dinner, then headed to the markets to shop. I had left all of my shopping for those last couple days in Phuket, which backfired once I realized how expensive the place was. Souvenirs and t-shirts and all the touristy stuff that I needed to buy were about twice the price as in Bangkok, and they had a much smaller selection. Needless to say, I didn't end up buying that much. I'm hoping Cambodia and Hong Kong will have some good shopping, so I can bring back some souvenirs for friends and family. After shopping we had a couple beers, got some pizza, and then went to bed.

Daniella met us at our hotel the next day to relax by the pool. We did that for a couple hours, went to shop some more, and then went back to the pool. We went out for Indian food for dinner and it was amazing! I had lamb rogan josh with garlic naan and I was in heaven. It was a nice break from Thai food. We had an early flight the next morning so we decided not to go out, but instead to grab a couple drinks and sit on the beach to soak in our last night in Thailand. There were fireworks and people lighting these torch things that float up into the sky, which is traditionally done for Chinese new years. That capped off our time in Thailand and we are so sad to leave. The country is so beautiful, the people are so friendly, and everything is laid back. I could have stayed there forever. We are now on to Singapore, where we'll be staying with Grandma's friend's cousin.
