We got dropped to our accommodation called at home. The room was nice, staff didn't have a clue, breakfast was hard work but we liked it here. The location was quite a bit of a walk into patong centre but we coped for about 7 days before changing to one closer. We liked patong even though it rained about 5 times every day real heavy downpours but still hot. We checked out the beach went to a few beach bars and had decent food around town. In the evenings you go to Bangla road which had loads of bars with woman working in them targeting western men for sex/ money etc we met some of the girls who we really liked hung out with them at the bar and then had a brilliant night out in Hollywood nightclub with them. So much fun. Also down that road were loads of ladyboys working the cabaret shows and pole dancing aswell as seducing men. It was crazy an interesting to watch. Some didn't look like women but some you wouldn't be able to tell they had curvy bodies, long hair, womanly features etc. we went to Phuket down one day and checked out their weekend market which had loads of stalls clothes food etc we loved the food. While we were in Phuket I also won a free 7 night stay for another time which is good. We met a lot of people while we were there too with loads of funny stories to tell. We stayed here for about 9 days then we were ready for Indonesia.
