On the morning of day 6 we hopped on a tinder to explore the beachfront and adjoining streets of Patong Beach before the ship’s midday departure.
It may seem odd but we always enjoy visiting local convenience stores and markets to discover the local treats. One common thread has emerged during the trip, shrimp based snacks and variations on the Kit Kat candy bar. We did not fall for the shrimp chips this time nor the lasagna flavored Lays chips.
Having had our fill of back alley taxi and massage hustlers we said goodbye to Phuket and made our way back onboard. The rest of our day was filled with a wine tasting event (a surprisingly informative one at that) and the usual evening dining activities.
Off we were to Malaysia with our first stop in Penang.
