Thailand has become one of my most favorite places to visit. I have been there three times in a year; last year to be exact (LOL), and it’ll never be enough! I have visited quite a few provinces and cities, such as Bangkok, Phuket, and Ayutthaya. I wish to visit more (Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Hua Hin or Pattaya) later. I’ve just never get bored going to visit Thailand.
First, let me introduce who joint me on my trip this time! => Miss Kisscie! Yay~! We have another trip together again! LOL
Okay! Without further babbling around, let’s get started!
Day 1: Flying from Phnom Penh to Bangkok
For the first day, we traveled from PNH to DMK by flying with Air Asia. It costed us 64.84 USD each for all-in round trip flight (PNH-BKK 10-17 May, 2018). We left from PNH in the evening around 5 PM since we worked that day, and we arrived BKK around 6:40 PM. Later, we grabbed a taxi and headed to our hostel. Unfortunately, we didn’t do much the first day we were in Bangkok because we were stuck in the airport for almost two hours (annoying af).
Day 2: Getting to Phuket from Bangkok
It’s another flying day. We traveled from DMK to HKT (Phuket) by flying with Thai Lion Air. It costed us 28.98 USD all-in one way trip (checked baggage as well). I were amazed by the flight itself. Thai Lion Air use Airbus A330-300 for this destination. The aircraft is big and it’s equipped with in-flight entertainment; I love it. That was my first time taking A330; previously, I usually fly with A320 family only. We left at 12:25 PM and arrived at 13:50 PM. After landed, we took minibus which can easily be found at the gate of the airport. It’s a shuttle from the airport to any point in Phuket. It costed us 180 THB (around 6 USD) to our hotel. Riding that shuttle, we were stopped at somewhere along the way. We were asked out to listen to them promoting their other services including: day trip to Phi Phi Island… etc. I didn’t choose their services because I had already booked online which was much cheaper. I highly suggest you book any trip or transportation means online since it’s much cheaper and you don’t need to carry a lot of money on your trip (or if so, you may use on shopping instead… lol) – in short, hassle-free! We arrived our hotel at around 3 PM. Then, we rested a bit and headed out to explore the city.
Although night life in Phuket is not as vibrant as in Bangkok, you can still enjoy it to the max! There are many places to get wild, just be careful.
