Phuket Island
As you can see (photo right), the west side of Phuket Island on the Andaman Sea is a series of coves with the surrounding area containing lush tropical vegetation and lots of hills and mountains. Nestled on the beaches of the coves you might find one or more hotels ranging from the nondescript to the luxurious. The beaches are beautiful and the waves lap ashore gently.

On our tour around the island our driver stopped at many of these beautiful coves and several hilltop observation areas for us to see the splendid beauty of the island. Enjoy these pictures of the beaches and coves around Phuket Island.

Our visit to Phuket would be a week long respite from the weary touring we'd done in Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and Bangkok. A chance to rejuvenate the batteries and prepare ourselves for the last week in Japan. During the beginning of the week Anne, Ken, Darla and I went on several dive trips offered by Marina Divers of Phuket. We enjoyed the water, but by the fourth day we were ready to get out and take a look at the island. Ken, Darla, Derek and Rose made arrangements for a one day excursion to the island where one of the James Bond movies was shot. Anne and I decided to just hire a private car and tour Phuket Island. These pictures were taken during that tour. I should add, the entire day with a private car and driver was extremely inexpensive.

While shopping was not necessarily on our agenda our driver, as you might expect, had a few places that he recommended we stop. Having just celebrated Anne's birthday with no present in hand I thought we might find something she'd like, and we did. I also had a silk jacket custom made and was happy with both the price and quality of work
