No time to updatig my blog but now here i am! My very first post in year 2015! Not too late wishing all of you Happy New Year! (^__^)
Start! On 1 January 2015 me & my buddies spent time 5 days 4 nights at Patong, Phuket. It was a new year gateway by giving ourselves a new year trip by having such a beautiful view in Phuket. We reached at Phuket International Airport (HKT) in the afternoon around 12 o'clock. It just take only 1 hour 20 minutes to reached Phuket from Kuala Lumpir International Airport 2 (KLIA 2). We were going by Air Asia. Alhamdulillah, the journey went well & smoothly arrived. As your information, sim card is free given once you arrive after take the luggage. So far, we don't take the sim card on because at the hotel free wifi was provided so no need to have a new sim card. I just calling my parent using hotel phone services only charges in RM 0.60. Hehe.

As usual, once arriving at the destination, we are looking for Phuket travel agency immediately & yes, we founded one & all the packages we purchased from the agency. The price worth to paid as the services we satisfied but to compared the price at the airport & out side it might have a little bit gap plus is okey if you know how to deal. For me & my friends, we just accepted what price given to us after dealing & worth or not it just already happened. Haha. (but it worth). The taxi services pick up us to the Bauman Residence Hotel at Patong. I am wondering if it was a taxi because the car is quite luxury. Wuuu... Lucky us because the driver can speak in Malay because he is from Pattani. =)
Then, we checked in at Bauman Residence hotel & checked up our room. The room was comfortable & we enjoyed all the hotel already provided.
Since my friend & i arrived early in the afternoon we spending our new year eve at the hotel by releasing ourselves at pool. The hotel was quite good.

We spend our long evening at the hotel & rest before we started our exploring in next few days in Phuket. Before we came to Phuket we already heard about the beautiful island such as 7 island, 4 island & many more islands. What we heard, Phuket nightlife was really alive at Patong. The town was not sleep at all. As usual the foreigner from european conquer the street is just like you are in New York City in summer. Haha. Some other side, we exploring the place that gave tragic memories to the whole world regarding to the disastrous tsunami. Alhamdulillah, on that time the weather was so good! Thank God! =)
As it was our first day in Phuket, after we got enough rest we walked at Patong street to searching our food to ate as our dinner. In first day, we bought nasi pulut! Nasi pulut was popular in Thailand & the taste was damn good! I ate 2 set for my self each. It might look like a simple menu but once you try one is not enough. Hehe... Be in Thailand, should try!

We end our day 1 by having our dinner & went back hotel to get enough sleep for the next day activities.

Our second day, we were having our fun date at Island Safari Phang Nga. The place is like you are in jungle. Once we arrived at island safari one boy already waiting & called my friend named, Amira. Haha.

After that, i got a strength on that time to ride a buffalo. Never imagine! Just to take a shot of picture. Haha.
And yess.... everything was in a man made clearing. The monkey show keep represent. The monkey shows us a variety of stuff that he can do. The monkey can riding bicycle, playing basketball & snap picture with the visitors. Friendly monkey!
After monkey represent the show, we shoot the elephant session. The show from baby elephant was so cute. The music comes out then, the elephant shaking their head left & right. Haha. We just enjoyed the show from the beginning untill we rede the elephant. It was my second experienced ride elephant & still i am afraid to handling it.

We end up our animals date by having fruits after finished all the island safari activites. Next, we still have time so we decided head to Bangla Street located at Patong. We walked about half of the street & there's lot of peoples hang off at bangla street.
After walked around the street, we searching for halal food & we heard there's one famous restaurant that served halal food known as Saveena Halal food! And yesss... the food taste just like you are in your own country. Almost Malay people will had their lunch or dinner at Saveena Halal Food. Highly recommended if you come to Phuket. It was in Patong area & easy to find. The price was so affordable! =)
We end our day by going back to our hotel.
3 January (Third day)
Our third day begins! The driver picked up us at hotel & we were ready by 8 am. We went for another tour which was 4 island. Before, when I was at Krabi last year, i already went to 4 island at Phi Phi leh, Maya Bay, Monkey Island & Bambo Island. So, this vacation me & my friends decided went to Hong island, Phanga, Koh Panak, James Bond islands & Lawa Island. Suppose after Lawa Island we should visit Naka Island or famously known as Naked Island but it was not in timing regarding the waves was not stable late in evening. Almost about 9 hours we took off by cruise. Goodness, it was really tiring day ever! Seriously! Me & my friend were not in a good condition on that time. Tssk...
First island we went to Hong Island, Phang Nga. The view was so beautiful & amazing. Then, our boat stopped at one spot because we must get ready to have our own experienced exploring the island by canoe. It was an exciting island trip when the journey was shown into the scenic world of the mysterious island by canoeing along the amazing landscape of Phang Nga bay. We were so admire to the beauty of the view & nature by showing spectacular atmosphere. Additional, during the canoeing into the bat cave the surrounding was so fantastic which the nature personally i had never imagine to grap the best moment by knowing the historic of the cave for over hundred of years. Amazing! Alhamdulillah...

Again, we were so lucky we meet Malay people abang shamsul who canoeing us & explained about the place that we explored. He can speak malay as he is Malaysian who work at Thailand, Mega lucky! =)
After all........... COLLAPSE
The island tour ended by returning back to Phuket island & its almost a day we were at island. Then, the minivan driver sent us back to the hotel to get enough rest because it was so tiring day on that day. I don't know how to described how the feeling was but, we got so much experienced while exploring all the island. Furthermore, it just you are doing documentary trip. Haha.
4 January (Fouth Day)
Our day 4 begins by visiting attractions place as we already booked tour city packaged. Miss Am who was our tour guide on that day bring us tour the city. We went for sightseeing Karon Beach & Kata beach. The place was very nice to took the picture by viewing the scenery from the top of the hill nearest Kata Beach. The image after we snap was amazingly beautiful!
After we finished snap all the pictures, Miss Am & the driver took us visited Chalong Buddhist Temples There is a historic temples that view like a tower by the building was famous in Phuket.

Then, the driver dropped us at bee farm as we just only took few minutes to arrived. Here, we got an experience to get close with the bees. Plus, we taste the fresh honey & also honey chocolate. Honey ice cream not definitely into my taste but to get a try i just okey to taste it.
After finished at bee farm we shoot to Cashew Nut Factory in order the place we can bought variety of snacks & food testing. Me & my buddies bought snack to bring back home. I don't have time to snap picture inside the shop because busy-ing taste all the snacks. =)
Then, we shops t shirt at one place nearest. So bad i forgot what name of shop i bought the souvenir but it was cheap & reasonable to shopping all those things. On our way travel the city, Miss Am asked us whether we already visit Phuket Fanta Sea or not because as what she informed us Phuket Fanta Sea was a place 'must go' when we were in Phuket. So we decided went to Phuket Fanta Sea at night. Miss Am booked 3 tickets for us to reserved & luckily we got golden seat & we really happy & satisfied!
Tickets & time show start!
The shows start at 9 pm so by 6 pm we just arrived by taking the tickets & walked around the Phuket Fanta Sea before the show start. So our packages including dinner which the buffet served on that night. The buffet for muslim & other religion was separate & it give much easier for us to enjoy the food. All the foods were so delicious & we were full! More we were excited because the dinner was in a big ball room & on that night i gave 5 stars served for our dinner! It was great night to have such a wonderful dinner. =)

While waiting for Fantasy Of Kingdom started we looked around the place. The place really amaze us. The theater Fantasy of Kingdom was very impressive & awesome. We had a good time & the element of surprised really amazing! The acting from all the cast were so unforgettable by putting up the history of the Princess Kamala. The animals were also into the character & it was damn good to watched it on that night. I am so satisfying & enjoying the show. I wanna share what happened inside the theater but unfortunately the camera was not aloud into the show & of course the audience must followed the rules by putting handphone & camera left at a checkpoint & will be collected later after the show done. Before the show start we already took some pictures while walking around the place.
After finished the show we went back to the hotel. Overall the Phuket Fanta Sea once we came there's no regret because everything were so satisfied from the start. We officially thank you to Miss Am even she was only guiding us half day but she's the one recommended us so that we went to Phuket Fanta Sea as our last activities before we were going back home next day. We surely enjoy all the entertainment even it was last minute planning. We had much experienced.
