Feels like forever (I'm sorry for procrastinating alot) but I have finally completed writing about the six days we've spent in Phuket! Here's an overview of who, what, where, when, why and how of the whole trip - based on the preps for Phuket post. Hope it helps anyone who's going over to this pretty awesome country :)

Expenditures
Here's a consolidated list of all of our expenditures throughout the trip. SGD710 for two people (inclusive of flight and accommodation) is freaking little, if you ask me. I don't know how much one would spend on a six day trip to Phuket but we definitely planned to spend more than a thousand together. We brought SGD400 per person to spend solely on food, activities and souvenirs while we're there, but I lost my wallet on the first day so Hafiz's share had to be divided into two. Thank god we paid for our accommodation through credit before arriving - our back up plan was to find some cheap sleeping bags and overnight by the beach every night.

Ruthless driving. Horrible road maintenance. Uncertified Halal restaurants. Bangla Road. Jungceylon. Wifi at the Airport 24/7 Hotel. Unsanitized snorkelling gear. Dead corals. Dropping both our cameras. Airport transfers. Pushy to tour agencies.


Goodbye Phuket

Horrible cinematography, I know - but for memories sake - here's a video compilation of our trip. Dropped both our cameras on the third day so pardon the spec on the lens please. Places covered were the likes of Karon, Soi Patak, Patong, Bangla Road, Jungceylon, Phi Phi Island, Maya Bay and Thalang District. Thank you for taking your time to read up on all the Phuket posts if you have. (:
