I thought I would start a “here now” thread to update on weather and general goings on.
Arrived at just after 8pm at Phuket airport with Jetstar direct flight from Melbourne. Everything went very smoothly - we landed, went through immigration and customs, bathroom stop and changing a small amount of currency and were out of the airport and in the car within 30 minutes.
Yesterday’s weather was mixed. Lovely sunny and clear until about midday then it clouded over and was very windy for a few hours. There were a few drops of rain but not enough to get wet walking around the market. It cleared to a lovely evening. We were all tired so went for an early dinner at Madam Thai not far from Nang Thong supermarket. There were 7 adults - we had 7 mains plus 8 cocktails for 1560 baht! Very good food apart from a garlic and pepper chicken which was deep fried and very dry.
It was very sunny and clear this morning. Today at midday it is cloudy but warm and perfect for sitting by the pool without frying (but definitely need high factor sunscreen).
We are all having a few quiet days before looking at doing any tours etc, it has been a very busy leadup to the holiday so we want to recharge the batteries.
I’ll update daily and if anyone wants to know anything I’ll try to help.
