We just returned from Phuket, Thailand. Our vacation was great and we thoroughly enjoyed time in the sun, and well, basically, a lot of time in the sun and around the water.
We were beach-tired every day.
And they had a National Geographic Channel.
Does it get any better?
We only took pictures the first couple days. Most were from our evening at "PHUKET FANTASEA." Here's some memories from our time at Thailand's Best Cultural Attraction of 2002-2003.
Wai-ing in front of the Palace of the Elephants- inside there was a Las-Vegas (Family style!) type show about Thailand. Very well done.
The whole place was decorated with lights and carnival type games. These were my favorite lights . They were in front of the Elephant Palace and the Golden Cafeteria (Still can't remember the name...but it was big and golden)
Take a look.....
There were also costume creatures wandering around. The one with Anthony is wai-ing, but its fingers are a bit tangled.
Here's me with a....um...not sure, but I think its fun that the picture captured the person inside...you can tell from their eyes that they were smiling inside the costume.
Costume person, you deserve a raise for going above and beyond your duties as a costume creature!
It was neat to pose with the animals there. For 100Baht we posed with Mr.Elephant...
And the coolest one was a BABY TIGER! It was purring and everything! This was totally worth the 300Baht ($9?) We even got a classy cardboard frame to put it in. Be jealous. I would be if you were me.
The rest of the time was us laying on lounge chairs either by the beach or by the pool, or swimming in sea or pool. Wonderful.
