Phuket finally was what I expected the whole of thailand to be, tacky tourist central! Bangalar Road in Patong is just like any strip in Ayia Napa or the likes and I was not impressed! Thankfully for my final nights in Thailand I had upgraded to a hotel so I could get away from the constant harassment of street sellers and the worst of brits abroad.
I took a day trip over to Koh Phi Phi and although it was swarming with tourists it was beautiful! Some of the bluest water I’ve ever seen and the prettiest beaches – including the one used by Leonardo Di Caprio in the film – the beach!
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed thailand and the whole of south east Asia, although my bank account hasn’t enjoyed it as much! There has been many highs and very few lows, not once have I been alone and I’ve met some amazing people who will be friends for life.
Goodbye SE Asia, I’ll be back x
