Following T's itinerary, we will be staying at Kata area in Phuket. There are two different transportation available - THB 200/pax by minibus where you will share with other tourists or THB 1000 per taxi. Taxi from Phuket International Airport to Kata will take around 1.5 hours and the minibus will take 2 hours. LQ and I took the cheaper option and were told to be the last to alight as everyone else stays at Patong area.

Big Buddha Phuket
Address: Yot Sane 1, ตำบล กะรน อำเภอเมืองภูเก็ต ภูเก็ต 83100, Thailand
You can easily spot the Big Buddha from far far away as it is really big. Lol. This reminds me of my trip to Lantau Island in Hong Kong last year 2014.

We passed by this tourist spot and saw elephants of different sizes. Look at this little angel who's being chained up!!! She has been constantly struggling out of the chain and repeatedly moving back and forth which you can see from the picture below. Urghhhh, so pissed!

Initially, LQ and I booked a private room at Fin Hostel. When we got to Fin Hostel, the receptionist offered us an upgrade to the hotel next door. We took a look at the room and gladly accepted the offer!
Throughout our stay at this hotel, the only thing to note that there is a nightclub next door and you will be hearing some club music up till late at night. We didn't find that a nuisance as it wasn't really loud.
Check out our cozy room below:

HUNGRY - we had our lunch before boarding our flight before noon. T is taking another flight and thus she will be arriving later. LQ and I charged out of our hotel to look for a place for dinner.
Can't recall the name of the restaurant but the food was disappointing. It's located right at the end of the food street in Kata.
|LQ while waiting for food|
|Nah, no need for close up of the food as they tasted really average and NOT spicy at all.|
|T couldn't handle her spicy padthai! Though it's not that spicy to us. Haha!|
|First Wefie of the trip for LQ, me and T|
|Andddd we went to the beach when it's dark, there's nothing much we could see|
