Airport - Hat Surin
01.03.2012 - 02.03.2012 40 °C
Arrived in Phuket airport, we sort through our luggage and leave the suitcases at the airport to take some smaller bags that could be attached to the mopeds we will rent later on.
We take a taxi to Surin where we had booked the Benyada lodge hotel. Once checked in, we head to the beach and realize it is very very touristy so we stroll along the rocks and invade the Surin phuket private beach...
After a half day at the beach, we get our first monsoon like rain around 9pm.
While at the Surin beach, we ask the reception and realize there is vacancy for the next night and we decide to seize the opportunity. Great bungalow in the 'jungle' with lots of flights of stairs to head to the great beach and black swimming pool (thanks to which my ass will have a bruise for the next 2 weeks!!). Jet ski and snorkeling; again heavy rain at 4pm.
Flo buys his Buddha and monk statues in town in the morning and we take a shuttle to head to the Phuket pier.
