Phuket Day 1 (II) - Sabai Sabai Restaurant / Premium Outlet

It was almost lunch time after checked in so we went nearby for lunch. This cosy little restaurant that serve simple Thai fares are quite popular among tourists. This kind of restaurants are commonly found all over Patong that cater all day dining and pricing usually very cheap as compared to dining in the hotels.

Almost half a day gone after lunch and we decided to just laze around the street of Patong and planned our itinerary. At the same time, checking out various tour agents along the street for best bargain Island tour packages.

Phuket's Tuk Tuk & Street of Patong Beach

There are many small travel agent booths along the street and we finally settled on one of them. Hopefully we had the best deals. With our itinerary well plan for the next few days, we decided to do some shopping for the rest of day. We took one of these tuk tuk (a form of taxi in Phuket, a bigger version of tuk tuk as compared to those in Bangkok) to the Premium Outlet. It was surprisingly costly too, another THB600 (SGD26) gone. Some of them even wanted THB800. Most of the taxi in Phuket don't run by meter so have to bargain for best price. The fare includes sending us there and fetch us back to Patong.

The premium outlet is located near the airport about 20 mins car ride from Patong. The mall was very quiet and seem liked we were the only shoppers. Either was off peak season or still very new so not many people know about it. The stuff here are not as cheap as expected so we also didn't buy much. Just bought some sport apparels.

Afternoon Snack Time...

Since the shops were not very interesting, we ate again! These snack bars are located in center of the outlet mall.

Phuket in Thailand is also the best choice for a tropical beach vacation and this is affordable 
and wonder place for enjoying holidays.
