Well having woken up looking like a chipmunk and realising that it really wasnt gonna be possible for me to dive, we decided to miss Koh Tao and go on to Phuket. Journey wasnt too bad til i had to sit next to an aussie who obviously had no concept of deodorant!
*****Having lost the will to live on a crappy computer i ended this entry a while ago as my avid fans may have realised. However I have since recovered and will resume once more....******
We arrived in Patong and soon realised it was the centre of the Thai ladyboy and sex trade of the country!
We went out on one or 2 eves, even braved one of the ladyboy shows. Have to say i was horrified when one tried to put a boob in my face. Think he/she/it was more horrified when i said no thanks!!!
Days were spent lazing on the beaches and finding cheap places to eat (wasnt difficult!) The sea wasnt the cleanest looking though so i think i ventured as far as my knees! We then moved 12km down the coast to Kata, a much quieter, more family orientated location for a night which was beautiful. Very much the contrast to Patong. Then is was off to Krabi.....
