Gibbon Rehabilitation




We have been here a number of times - so for more information 
please click here for the postings.


Again we had a wonderful time but I was not pleased that there does seem to be a degree of confusion as to whether the monies (however small) actually help the plight of the Gibbons.


I did see a Gibbon on the shoulder of someone in Krabi recently.

Phuket Aquarium and more



We have visited the Phuket Aquarium more than half a dozen times 
and there are previous posts.

 but we always visit the turtle pools behind them.  


Jemma took some friends this time and played on the small playground.

Kata Beach another visit




We dropped off on Kata Beach for an ice cream after a hard game of golf with Jemma at Dino Golf.




After our last visit in January I was surprised at how messy it was.




The weather was windy though and the red flags were out?

Phuket Weekend Market - Talaad Thai-Rot



We sometimes go here but it can be very busy - always fun though.

This starts at approximately 4 pm and finishes at 9 pm and is interesting for tourists but the merchandise on sale is predominantly for the Thai people.
Here are some pics.


This time Jemma played with a snake!
(but it was a small one).

The weekend market is opposite (almost) Wat Naka.

Elephant Ride and Big Buddah



Big Buddah is normally mentioned as the tall hill in South Phuket which has a Buddah built on the very top.




That is not all that is on this hill - a quarter of the way up is also a place where you can go for an elephant ride.  There are a number of places where you can have an elephant ride in Phuket - but this is very convenient.

Butterfly Garden and Insect World (closed April 2015)




Jemma does not tire of visiting here.




This time we were lucky with a proposed 'things to do' sheet for Jemma -as you can tell Jemma loved filling it all in.
