Phuket Day 5 (I) - Phuket Town Shopping

26th Sep 2010

Our itinerary for the last night in Phuket was shopping! After breakfast at The Orchids which is along the same street as Lair Lay Tong Restaurant, we took the free shuttle service from the hotel to Phuket Town.

The hotel free shuttle dropped us at one of the open air carpark in Phuket Town. From there we hired a cab to bring us around. The first stop was to Ocean Shopping Mall. We managed to grab some cheap T-shirts and shorts at The Export/Warehouse shops.

Next, the cabby brought us to Pornthip to buy some local food souvneirs.

Our last stop was to the Central Festival. We paid about THB 300 for the taxi fare (from Ocean - Pornthip - Central). We reached around lunch time so went for lunch first before shopping around. We had Japanese food at Zen which will be featured in my next post. The mall is huge and has our favourite store - Central Department Store.

After few hours of shopping, we were tired and had some coffee at the Black Canyon Coffee before going back to the hotel as some of my friends were going for the Spa in Banthai.

As I mentioned from the first day of my trip, taxi fares in Phuket are really expensive. We spend another THB500 to go back to the hotel from Central Festival.

Phuket island has so many fantastic beaches which will make a lot of attention from the tourists who visit the island.

My friend and I were enjoy very much our 4 night 5 days short trip in Phuket last week.
