Phuket, Thailand: Take 1

An Unexpected Stop..

View NUS Exchange on Cassi's travel map.


I had one day of laundry, packing my room, moving my stuff out, and getting ready for Thailand after I ended exams. My room went from a disaster zone to only 4 bags, and soon I was ready to leave NUS for the last time.

I left NUS early in the morning on Friday, December 2nd, with a flight direct to Phuket, Thailand. I was planning to meet up with a group of NUS Students on the island of Koh Phi Phi on Friday afternoon, but my flight was delayed and I ended up missing the last ferry out to the island. Luckily there were two other NUS students on my flight with me, who were also hoping to head to Koh Phi Phi, and the three of us got a room for the night in Patong (a town on the island of Phuket).

Patong is a place hard to describe. The town never stops, with bars and clubs open until sunrise and music blasting from every open window. There are more strip clubs, prostitutes and 'ladyboys' walking around than you could imagine. With just one night to spend there, we wandered the streets in amazement. We eventually found a night club that wasn't too scary and stayed there for most of the night, we had a blast. Although this was an unexpected stop we had a surprisingly good time exploring Patong.

The next morning we got up and caught the 8am ferry to Koh Phi Phi.
