17-03-2016 – James Bond Island

In 1974 the James Bond movie “Man with golden gun” was filmed here. Now a touristic chaos!. But when you look around and find a good spot you can make some nice images and have the feeling you’re alone there. Check for yourself:

10-03-2016 – Phuket Sightseeing

It was a long day… Mini-van in, Mini-van out. Walking around for 10 or 20 min then back in the mini-van. Here the list of all destinations:

Kata View Point
Elephant trekking
Monkey Show *
Snake Show *
Big Buddha
Chalong Temple
Cashew Nut Factory
Canoeing Around Mangroves
Bang Pae Waterfall *
Chinese Temple

Most of them where nice to see. Some i din’t like. The money show and Snake show. It seems that the animals like it…. but no. Every hour a person make the snakes angry or afraid to show the tourist how they react. That is not Entertainment. Show a video with this, then walk around and tell something about these snakes.  Later the day we went to the Waterfall and Gibbon Project. Gibbon Project is to get Gibbons who used for tourism industry. Strange that earlier the day you see a monkey show, and later the day a rescue project for Gibbons.

For a visual idea of this Sightseeing see the images. Oh and I don’t have images for the 2 shows, principles:

Patong Tsunami 2004 1

08-03-2016 – Back to 26 December 2004

Suddenly on the beach i remembered something… Why didn’t i see anything about this moment. Nothing… But it happend, Patong was also hit by the tsunami disaster in 2004. There is nothing left thats remember that moment. I checked out and some people told me that it was almost gone in 2005. I don’t go make a whole story about it, we all know what happend that day. But it’s a strange feeling at that moment when you think back what we all have seen on TV, hear on radio, all the amateur video’s on youtube… And now i walking here around and there is nothing left that reflect back to 26 December 2004. Here some images of Patong beach after the disaster.

02-03-2016 – Room at PGS Hotels 360°

This hotel is from a Russian company. I didn’t know that and thats ok. The style of the hotel is how you see some interiors in Russian buildings as well (Never been their, but saw some images). Lots of Russian visitors here and Scandinavian people. The Russians are loud, hard talking, smashing the doors. I cannot say if thats normal for their culture but when you in bed and you hear many sounds in the hallway its annoying. After 23:30-00:00 is almost quiet.

The hotel is clean! And its 5-10min walk from the beach. There is a little swimming pool so when you want cool down at the end of the day. After i went to the beach i goto the pool, lay in shadows and relax then go upstairs to get a shower and put aftersun on my body.

I have a good signal of the WiFi, better then the WiFi connection in Novotel in Shanghai and Beijing… So im very happy because i can upload my images without timeouts!

My view is nice. At the highest floor and see the ocean. The sunset is always nice to see!!

02-03-2016 – Patong Beach, Thailand 360°

So finally have a nice 360° image of the beach of Patong. You see its not crowed with people. Most of the tourists here are Russian and People from Scandinavian. Sometimes you hear French and i didn’t hear any Dutch.

Every day i goto the beach for some hours and rent a bed include a parasol for 100 Bath (2,60 euro) for a whole day. Around 13:00 i walk to the boulevard and there are the street food motorbikes again. Buy some nice lunch an walk back. Have a nice view with nice food and even more nice weather. Even Patong is very touristic its nice.

Maybe i will move to Kata Beach for 1 week, seems a beautifull beach as well and always good to see other locations.

01-03-2016 – Patong by Night

So this evening i went to the streets where it all happen, drinks, beer, shots, ladies, boy’s ,food on the streets … you name it and you will find it here. On every meter they try you to get into their bar and have some drinks. On every corner you see a group of ladies for a massage… At “The Paradise Complex” you see the lady boy’s, and the gays walking around.

Near the beach you will find many restaurants and food on the streets. This is always so difficult, because the food on streets is do delicious but mostly fish, chicken, beef, or something between, without vegetables… When you goto restaurant you will get everything, but its more expensive.

I have made some images only for a little impression what you can expect here:
