    Paulie's Trip Report

    I wasn't going to write a TR but might as well.

    My itinerary is:

    1 night BKK.....met up with Dupree, Chob and Nomad. Had a great time......got a bit too drunk and was way hungover the next day.

    4 nights in Lamai......hung out with Nels and Dopey. Lamai is dead quiet, one night we went out and Dopey could have his pick if any BG he wanted!
    Despite being quiet I still absolutely love the place. We stay in the next beach over from Lamai.....Hua Thanon, it's very local and just real laid back.

    1 night Patong/2 nights Kamala.....Phuket airport chaos and the horrible drive to Patong had me questioning why we decided to come back to Phuket for the 1st time in 6 years but once we settled in Patong, we were happy to be back.

    We had US Thanksgiving dinner at Summer Breeze and it was fantastic! The spread was varied and top quality and the girls were very attentive for drink orders.

    After, Ao and I went down to Bangla. Bangla has changed a ton, so many touts every 2 feet.....mostly young farang.
    But we went down to Soi Freedom(old Soi Eric) and it was oretnuxh the same as before. I would have to say there were a lot of pretty girls down that Soi. We sat with Dao who used to waitress at MTB and had a lot of fun chatting.

    We are now in Kamala at a Villa we rented. It's a bit showing it's age but still very nice

    Well Paulie most trip reports start at least two weeks before leaving. They post most days but your trip is almost over. Not up to scratch mate and you try to add almost all of it in one post? get your shit together. 555

    You got any pics on Hua Thanon and the place you stayed? We are planning Samui in March never been to Sumui and a layback local type place would suit us.

    Sometimes reading a great report from start to end takes awhile Sydney but well worth the time spent.

    yeat,THAT drive.
    thinking back to my first time along there from the airport. absolutely nothing like the mental pic i had of Phuket or what a sparsely populated,tropical island should look like 55 ckokas with thais,cars and MB's... and hardly a beach or coconut to be seen.

    I will post some later of Hua Thanon.
    It's only a 5-10minute scooter ride from Lamai center but usually I am one of a few farang I see down there.
    There is all little Thai shops, people are very friendly.
    If you are an early riser like me......you see all the street stalls starting cooking their specialities at 5-5:30am

    Our cat

    We stay in a very nice 4 star small resort......they always have a nice dog but this time they had a really great black cat, he was so playful that I think may have still been a kitten.
    And he adopted us......spending most days in our room and sleeping in our bed the last 2 nights......sprawled out between Ao and I 5555
    I love in Thailand, you book a nice resort and it comes with a free cat!!

    The last night was real funny......He was getting super playful and pawing at both of us and knocking the back of Ao's book as she read.
    So she kicked him out and I dozed off.
    20-30 minutes later she said "hey, your cat is back"
    He found a little opening in the window and snuck back in and was crawling on top of the headboard and his tail whacked out in the face and scared the crap out of her.

    Honestly......if I lived in Thailand, that cat would be coming home with me......I absolutely adored him

    That village is on the way to Hin Ta & hin Yai, grandfather and grandmother rocks, so it may come from that?

    Ha
    Actually I was hoping we could walk to there and back right on the beach but in high tide the water blocks off our section of the beach.

    Funny enough I could have convinced Ao of the long walk because she is such a wimp that she'd do the wrong walk rather than the small drive in the dark

    Villa Nalinnadda

    This is our 2nd time staying in Villa Nalinnadda and it was just as good as last time.
    It is a small white washed Mediterranean style hotel with only 8-9 rooms
    Breakfast is brought to your room each morning at the time you choose the night before. You have a bunch of different chooses you can order each day and since it is cooked to order the food is top notch and you can order multiple dishes on the menu each day...

    A daily 1 hour spa is included in the room rate.

    If you go in low season, and March would be.......the hotel is usually only half the resort is full and it's always young Japanese or Korean girls and they fxuk off all day so you have the resort basically as your own private resort.

    The staff, especially Boom the manager, is wonderful.

    We got an amazing rate of about 2k baht a night this time. With the breakfast and massage included in that price.....it is absolute bargain.

    The 1st pic was our actual room.
