The Second Surprise Destination is Phuket, Thailand!

We just got off our Bali to Bangkok flight on Thai Airways and are currently waiting in the Royal Silk lounge for our flight to the final surprise destination – Phuket, Thailand! I can say with certainly my first surprise destination on this trip of Bali, Indonesia was a GREAT success!

We will be spending 3 nights at the Le Meridien Phuket (should have been 4 nights but thanks to a Thai Airways schedule change it is now only 3) which is one of the few resorts that has a “private beach”. In Phuket, all beaches are public but due to the location of the Le Meridien, the beach is walled off by nature on each side so its acts as a private beach for hotel guests.

Even though we only have 3 days in Phuket, we plan to make the most of them with a day trip to Phang Nga and an opportunity to see the famous James Bond Island from the movie The Man with the Golden Gun. We will also see some cute baby elephants, which Andrea is beyond excited for.

As I suggested in my last post, make sure you are tuned in to my Twitter and Instagram accounts for pictures of our adventures. There are some great shots of Bali but you can expect a full trip report covering flights, hotels and activities on the blog when we return.
