When we went to Phuket, the rain came as well. The heavy downpours actually caused flooding on the journey there. We decided to stay in Phuket town, and we were really pleased to see how Thai it was, as we hadn't exactly heard good things about Phuket from other travellers We decided to go to the cheapest guest house in the book for a room, and we really surprised when we booked in to it that it was the same hotel that Leonardo DiCaprio stays in, in The Beach. It was called On On Hotel, and despite the rain leaking on our bed, and the musty smells, we were really excited to be staying there as nothing at all had changed since the film was brought out!
Hi there, we are Rob and Suez from Blackpool, North West England, UK.
From the 2nd June 2009 we're off on a bit of an adventure consisting of 2 months in India then 4 months round South East Asia.
We've been on a few mini adventures before but nothing quite as big as this! Our general idea is to meet a lot of people, see a lot of things and take as many pics as possible.
We'll try to keep you updated with our latest stories and pics, if you have any messages or travelling tips don't be afraid to get in touch.
Adios Amigos!... full info
