Destination: Phuket

Why hello there! First and foremost, Happy New Year. I believe many have been looking forward to 2011, myself included. To kick start 2011, here is the first post, a 4D2N trip to Phuket.

Upon arriving at Phuket Airport, we grabbed a cab, had an one hour journey to the resort.

The resort is located somewhere on a hill, 5 minutes drive away from Patong Beach. The other areas on the hill look quite run down, thank god the resort does not disappoint. Booked the hotel online on a very very last minute basis and it was randomly selected because at that point of time(holiday season), out of 5, 4 hotels would be fully booked. Thank god indeed!

The first pool

I can haz Katy Perry-ish shades

All set to explore the place. Loaded up on sunscreen, the sun there was scorching hot, hotter than Malaysia, probably because there were very little clouds.

Went to chill at the lobby

Cantaloupe juice

Lunch time(I see something else in the picture)

The second pool. I think they have 3 or 4 pools in total. 

Well, this one has a swim up bar right in the middle.

Chilling at the bar.

Sex on the beach (:

At night, buffet dinner by the beach.

Christmas themed! Well, it was Christmas day after all.

Christmas pudding and stuffs, nomnomnom (:

After dinner, a walk on the private beach.

Almost-middle parting. Eeeeks, super no-go.

That's for the first day in Phuket, mostly just chilling and exploring the resort. Even slept for hours in the room during noon, tired from the night before I suppose. One thing I noticed on the first day, there was hardly any Asians in sight except for the locals working there.

So, Asian hunting on the second day perhaps?
