S.A.D. Season Adjustment Disorder
I have just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks holiday in my favourite place in the world. Thailand !
With my wife been Thai it gave her the chance to catch back up with family in Patong Beach. Phuket. Me it gave me plenty of time for massages !
First Massage of My Holiday
After 2 long flights it was time for a shower a little bit of food & find our first place for massage.
We walked down the seafront road. But found no place of interest to us.
Then we walked down the road that runs parallel with the beach road, we came across EMOTIONS DAY SPA MASSAGE (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Emotion-Day-Spa-Phuket/126594730750483 ). With it been a long day we took a 1 hour Thai massage followed by a 1 hour Oil massage, at 450 baht ( 42.40 baht to the pound at this time ) it was very acceptable thank you very much. The young man who massaged me was very experienced at both types of massage, the work he did with knees and elbows on my back made all the long flight aches & pains disappear !
We used this place 3 times over our trip. Never once was we disappointed, the price was also one of the best around.
It can get rather busy in the evening, wise to go in the afternoon.
Good Food & Welcoming Staff
I would like to also give anyone travelling to Patong Beach area a little eating place to try.
GRILL BILL (https://www.facebook.com/GRILL-BILL-KAMALA-108927389157303/)can be found in Kamala. Sunny & Bum the owners are so friendly you can check some of there vlogs out on youtube at : https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=sunny+in+thailand .
they open after 5pm, but the meal was fantastic & plenty of it ! I tried the bbq pork mixed, I couldn’t finish all the meal ! too full ! the meats were cooked on a open grill bbq in front of the restaurant. The meat on the spare ribs just fell away. My mouth is watering now just from the memory of eating here.
If you go in the day time to Kamala you can have a lovely walk down the beach. We was there in early September & the beach was empty & so lovely to walk on, even in 31oC !
Boat Trip to James Bond Island
This year was the first time I have done the boat trip to James bond island.
This included 2 kayaking adventures as well as lunch. Plus the famous James bond island itself.
This is a full day trip. We was picked up at 7am not returning until 6.30pm. We was the last to be picked up & first to be dropped off, it was even longer day for others in the minibus !
James bond island was busy, even though it’s low season, don’t know what it would be like in high season ?
The guides kayak you around the caves and lagoons, but me been me, got my chance to kayak my own inflatable a couple of times !
The people running the show on the boats really work hard to make the full trip enjoyable. It was a long day but very memorable.
I won’t give too much away, but I would recommend this trip. But do remember I did it in low season, so can’t say how busy it will be in high season.
Another place that is worth a visit is Phuket town itself. Some really nice buildings, even a cat café !
I also found a shop selling weapons ! Sorry massage tools . I also found plenty of balms here !
As you can see I bought a few balms ! But only one new massage tool !
Now it’s time to plan next years trip. Maybe April ? When it’s Songkran (Thai New Year).
Have very fond memories from Songkran 2010 when I was covered in water within 5 minutes of leaving the hotel !
Any comments much appreciated
