An early start and time to head from Koh Phi Phi to Phuket. Looking back we should have spend more time in Koh Phi Phi but with plenty of other places to see we decided to move on. We decided against staying on the beaches in Phuket and headed to Phuket town. We checked in and stayed at Sleep Sheep Phuket Hostel which was clean and pretty nice but a little on the quiet side.
We headed out for lunch just down the road to a small place (which due to the amazing Google maps and John’s crazy memory was this place). We ordered some drinks which we think had been in the fridge for a few years. To eat, we had a couple of dished included tofu with mint pork.
We were really surprised to find mint pork, as mint isn’t generally used in Thai cooking. Turned out it was a typo on the menu and it was mince pork. It didn’t matter as it was really really nice.
After the meal we walked around the town admiring the architecture in the old town which was really nice. On our walk, we came across a huge book shop and tried to find some decent books.
We headed back to the hostel and spent the afternoon chilling out, uploading photos and skyping home.
In the evening we headed back into the old town and ate at China Inn Cafe Restaurant. A little more expensive than the street food or local places but the food was really good.
After the meal we headed over to Lard Yai Bar just over the road which was filled with kids toys, many we remember from our childhood. We sat back, drank and listed to Jimi Hendrix!
After a few beers we strolled back to the hostel, passing a temperature sign – 31 degrees at night!
