Thailand is beautiful. Even despite the fact that 90% of tourists in this country, it is our countrymen (and on vacation so I want to take a break from all of them), here you can find more secluded places. We conducted in Thailand (Phuket), 8 days, and had four more in Singapore and Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur). Today I will talk about his impressions of Thailand and show almost all the beaches of Phuket, making their ratings.
The most expensive train in Thailand - this flight. Accommodation and meals there almost as in the Soviet Union for the first :) When lunch in a restaurant on the beach brought us through to 1200 rubles for four, we metropolitan residents, long laugh;) Thai beautiful. I do not like spicy food and wondered before the trip, as the bear is a gastronomic challenge. But it turned out that in Tae huge number of delicious dishes and quite sharp. For all the time we have never been disappointed in the meal, which would not have visited. Particularly impressed by the magnificent fruit, valued at 30-70 rubles per kilogram. In general, in terms of food everything is wonderful. The movement then left hand, most tourists take scooters, and for many it does not end very well. If one more to go normally, without training together so not really. So we took the car for four, the easiest with a gun costs 1 000 - 1 300 rubles per day. Gasoline about 45 cents per liter. Go all they want, I quickly mastered and dissected on an opposite, turned where I wanted through the solid, as do absolutely everything;) accommodation Tae too is not expensive. We lived in a small hotel Kata Lucky Villa. It's all one-storey and large, no fuss, quietly and calmly, as we like. Our house and pool.
Almost all the beaches of Phuket are on the western side of the island, coming from us - Kata and Kata Noi. This Kata, on it too much people, and not much comfort.
Neighboring Kata Noi much nicer, even he first got into my top, but then lost his third place :) Of course, we were at the beginning of the low season, in May, the rainy season begins, and the number of tourists is decreasing.
That Phuket is really cool, so is the sea and the waves. I do not even know whether I liked to swim without waves :)
So I entered the water)
And so the real pros)
There is not far from the equator, so the sun almost exactly hanging over his head. Very unusual sensations)
Thunderstorm! In principle, we are not particularly bothered that sometimes rain in the afternoon passed. Usually everything is dissipated through the hour and a half, and the sun was shining again. It is said that after May everything is much more serious, the rain can go almost the whole day.
Moving further south we get to the observation deck overlooking the north and three beaches: the first Kata Noi, Kata and then Karon. For Caron is most like this place - Patong, for me so it's a dump, as the city and the beach. I do not understand why people stay in such places.
Kata Noi top.
More here cool to meet the sunset. He is short, but very beautiful!
And now fly in the ointment! All busiest beaches at low tide on the beach and in the sea is going to an incredible amount of debris. Basically it is different plastic. Nobody cleans, enter the sea and generally unpleasant to be on the beach. That we have not seen on the beaches, got in my ranking of the best. But this does not apply to Kata, Kata Noi, Karon and Patong. Here, for example, looks like the best of these - Kata Noi. All this garbage.
Here Karon. In general, it is not bad, but I like more intimate and solitary places.
But here, too, beautiful sunset, like everywhere else)
Go further south to the beach Nai Harn, which ranks third in my rankings. Along the way there are elephant farms and fishing villages.
But first we looked at it from above, before reaching the southernmost point of Phuket, which offers excellent views and is located some sight-seeing with the elephants. Local come here to pray.
Renowned Cape Promthep Cape
Hence seen our Nai Harn, cozy and clean beach.
I do not know what kind of hotel, but living here is very cool!
And now we have poisoned the beach Surin, ranked second in my ranking. The path to it lies to the north, and along the way you can look here in this paradise and wild place.
At Surin we spent most of the time. Here I got to surf! The truth is almost drowned, because the first time turned out to be a four-foot waves. It turned out that it is not very easy.
More north are other beaches. But none of them we did not like. Bang Tao.
On the road met a rest buffalo.
More to the north two beaches - wildly Nai Thon
И грязноватый Nai Yang
Then only long and deserted beaches and Mai Khao Sai Kaeo at Phuket Airport. View to the north during takeoff.
Well, in the first place, after Nai Harn and Surin I would put private beach at Le Meridien - Karon Noi. Friendly and quiet beach for hotel guests. However, if you stop it, you will not want to go to other beaches. Guest input costs 1500 rubles per person per day, includes lunch, use of sun beds, swimming pools, saunas, sports grounds. Here we had a wonderful last day of our holiday.
In general, Thailand very much. We will definitely's go here again, but now likely to Samui.
