Tee Shirt Heaven
Tee shirt shops are everywhere, here you will buy from all the leading brands, don't think there orginal but at 100 to 200 baht batt a shirt who cares.
Once you have decided on your style of shirt, check the size, try it on, coz there not allways the size they say they are.
Its now been two years since my first visit to Patong and i can say my tee shirts are still going strong, they have kept there shape and color. So i would say they have been good value for money.
So buy a few and take them home for the family. Tee Shirts, addias, nike, No Fear, loads of diffrent brands to pick from and a huge range of colors and designs too. Depending on your bartering skills but somewhere between 60 and 200 batt.
If you are after larger size's like XXL they tend to try to charge you more, just have fun with them when barttering.
We found this little bar on our first night in Phuket, its called the Friends Bar and thats what it became. The owner's name was Boonsong and she was a great host. Tyler had his birthday while on this trip and Boonsong and her staff decorated the bar with ballons etc and also a birthday cake. It was a great night, its the kind of bar that you can go to during the day for a cold beer or after dinner and not get hassled by the girls, there's girls there if your so inclined but its up too you.
If you happen to go there please give Boonsong a kiss and hug from me ok.. THANKS Dress code, just turn up in shorts and tee shirts
Whenever we are in Phuket we use the services of a driver who has a clean, air-conditioned car which can seat up to 8 passengers (at a squeeze - 4 is best). He is prompt, reliable and speaks English well. He helps us with everything you can think of, from great meals at the most incredibly cheap prices to picking up things for us, picks up and drops off our laundry which he gets done at bargain prices, shopping on our behalf to give us new tastes and experiences at the markets or festivals. He also gets us 'Thai prices' when we're out shopping.
He is friendly, fun and incredibly helpful. Having him makes Phuket like a second home for us because we have easy access to anything at any time with local knowledge.
Mai is available for airport transfers at a quoted price, but usually 600 baht, then usually 1,500 baht per day, as fuel costs have risen and he now drives a large commuter van. Longer distances may incur a little extra, but Mai will give you a price up front.
Mai's wife, Nuch (pronounced Nooch) has an email address which she checks every few days. It is listed below. I will include her telephone number as well, as she takes the bookings. If you call Thailand, be prepared to hear a beeping sound, the phone does not make a ringing sound that you are probably familiar with. It does not mean the phone is disconnected or engaged, just hang on.
Mai now has two vehicles, as he has purchased a minibus which can seat 11-12 passengers so he can accommodate group bookings or smaller ones.
Please note the change of email address, the other account no longer works.
