On our first day our taxi driver took us to our hotel - we looked around and it didn't look great, we went into the hotel which was really nice but when we went went around the area, we found out it was a dump - we were in Phuket town which is really not the place to stay, so we did a bit of research and realised we had to be in Patong - that is the tourist part.
The next day we made our way to Patong - was a lot more livelier but full of tourists.
On the second night we went to a show called Fantasea, it was really good - a mini version of a Disney show.
The next day we went to the Phi Phi Island (where they filmed the movie 'Beach') all the islands we visited were beautiful and the beaches were amazing.
We went on a City tour the next day where we went Ox cart riding and elephant trekking and we saw some monkey shows - it's amazing what they train the monkeys to do.
We also went to a lady boys show there - was quite interesting, but was scary that you really couldn't tell which were male and which were female.
