Phuket | island getaway

And so we went. Our first family oversea getaway. It could be quite trying to bring 3 kids for a vacation but at the end of the day, everyone has good time and we get to spend some family and bonding time together.

We went to Phuket for a 5D4N holiday. It was actually hubby's uni friends get-together vacation. They chosen Phuket as the reunion destination and spouses and kids were welcomed to tag along.

Flew in on 1 December, we reached the beautiful island of Phuket just after 4pm. Our hotel, Capitano Beach Hotel was a budget lodge yet comfy and convenient place that is situated just few minutes walk from the Patong beach.







Not much of a view from the balcony. Surrounding by many eateries, bars, hotels and businesses alike, it was pretty noisy at night. And there was a shrine next my window!



After dumped our bags into our room and took a nice warm shower, we headed to hunt for food as we were hungry by then.  It was after 7pm Thai time.

After getting information from our friendly and helpful landlady, we walked down the road to this roadside food stall. We wanted local hawker food so we got it here.

Mini Thai Restaurant. It served authentic Thai dishes. Not only that, the food was tasty and reasonably priced.

I love Thai food! My Kanowit ex-students are planning their next reunion in Chiengmai - I do hope I would be able to join them when the time comes.

How wonderful to have the whole family on vacation. The food must be very good since you are eating it at the homeland. Looking forwards to more on your activities there.

Good decision to bring the whole family to tag along to your husband's reunion! I guess the children must be very happy enjoying their holiday together with each other overseas. I see tomyum soup, omelette, pad thai and pineapple fried rice, all the food that I like! Enjoy!
