Visiting Thalang in Phuket, Thailand was a short and sweet. The hotel staff recommended the beach Nai Yang; supposedly the cleanest beach in Thalang. I’m sure it was and the waters were tempting, but the waves were rough that day so I did not dare to test the waters.
Phuket Airport Hotel was actually pretty decent for one night. The staff was very helpful, the pool was nice, and the rooms a bit ugly, but clean. I’m usually fussy, but we paid nearly nothing for this. We wanted to stay near the airport due to an early flight the next morning. Even the beds were comfortable. My rating: ♥♥♥
…Is what it is. If I’d want to stay near the airport then why not (for _one_ night)?! There’s even a pool, and the staff is excellent. The mosquitos not so much.
A taxi to Phuket center cost about 600 THB; so we dined about 5 minutes away from the hotel; at a local pizza restaurant. The salami pizza was good, and you can choose soft or hard crust. My rating: ♥♥♥
…It was food when I was hungry. I had pre-decided to enjoy myself, and I managed to do so, even with all the 34 lizards staring at me like I had stolen something from them.
