We are now in Thailand at Phuket, Kata Beach. It is a bit of a contrast from our time in Malaysia. We are at a lovely new hotel close to Kata Beach called the Melody. There is not a lot to do that appeals to us here except chill and relax by the pool. The islands do not appeal as I was here in the 80s and prefer to keep those memories and fear if we go it will be like a reenactment of the Normandy landings. Lots of shops and the massages are cheap but not as good as the ones we had in Malaysia.
Food in Thailand is well below par compared with Malaysia. It is not awful just lacks the wow factor. Below some of our foodie experiences from Malaysia.
Our next stop after Thailand in a few days will be Vietnam so hoping the food will get better.
