Day 35/36 Thailand: Phuket

Our last two days in Thailand were again beach days. Honestly we had not planned to be lazy, not at all because we acutally do not like vacations with nothing else planned but going to the beach. I had all kinds of idea where to go, what to do. But after years of having very active vacations we kind of slit into being lazy for once. And guess what, this time it suited us just fine and it felt like heaven. Enjoying to listen to the waves cruishing to the shore, the birds singing, enjoying good food and fresh fruits. What a bliss!

Before going to dinner we liked to walk along Karon Beach and watch the sunset. On our last evening in Thailand the sunset was just spectacular, but see for yourselfes below.

Day 33 Thailand: Phuket – Big Buddha 

Yesterday was quite a day 🙂 much more active than the relaxed beach. We decided to hike to Big Buddha. From Kata Beach it is a ca. 10km roundtrip with approx.360m elevation change. Now add about 85% humidity, sunny weather and 30° and you have got the absolute not perfect hiking weather 😎 Continue reading

Day 32 Thailand: Kata Beach and Karon Temple Market

Yesterday we…surprise, surprice…went to the beach 🙂 But not only did we do that, no we ventured out and went to Karon Temple Market, also called Karon Night Market. The market is only twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays from 4pm to 10m. There is food, clothes, souvenirs and almost everything else that you can think of. Find some pictures below.

Day 29 Dubai to Phuket, Thailand 

After a very relaxing 6 hour flight with Emirates from Dubai to Phuket, we arrived right on time at 8am on Saturday morning. As I had heard and read a lot about the Taxi Mafia in Phuket we booked a private transfer to our hotel for about 20€. For Thailand standards this is alot of money but for a 1hour drive and my standard it was a very good deal which I can highly recommend (www.phuketastik.com).  Continue reading

Day 28 Dubai: Dubai Mall and At the Top Burj Khalifa 

Our last day in Dubai was dedicated to Dubai Mall and the At the Top Burj Khalifa experience. We headed to the mall at around noon and had about 4 hours until our pre-booked (highly recommended as the tickets for at the top were sold out for 11/03 and 11/04) time slot to go up on the 124th floor of the tallest building in the world.

Burj Khalifa
