The Phuket Big Buddha

on Wednesday, 21 July 2010

Today I wake up so tired, after staying up late, that I can’t be bothered to get up and do bodyfit. Something I regret afterwards. Tom goes and does it though. I decide to go to the beach again, and also visit the big Buddha in Phuket, Tom decides to stay at the hotel. I get to the big Buddha, which is fairly impressive, like the Buddha we saw in Lantau, Hong Kong, but made of marble instead of metal. They were doing quite a bit of repairs and construction, so there was a lot of scaffolding and work being done. I then decide to check out some of the other beaches, but after a half hour of riding around, and not finding any decent beach, after checking about 3 others. I head back to the beach we have been going to every other day, but just as I arrive it starts to tip it down, I wait a little bit, until it stops a bit, but there is no sign of it stopping completely, so head back to the hotel, where we chill out at the hotel.
