What's up with Phuket hotel prices?!

Recommended Posts

Update: Made it to Kata. Ibis was indeed open and received us with extra temp checks and hand sanitizer. Looking at the hotel from the outside at night, looks like there is one other room populated other than ours. 

 

If you want to see Kata Beach as it would be after the apocalypse, come now. Dead. Zero restaurants open. Zero. Only businesses all the way up and down the beach road open (at 8:00 p.m.) are 7-11 and Family Mart.

During the day massage shops are open, and I'm in the shop as well sometimes.

 

Yes, that road is dead.

This is my wife's dream as she would ideally like to be on a deserted island with no other people. Me, on the other hand has historically come to Kata about 50% for the beautiful beach (with Thai food actually available) and the other 50% for the cute Russian girls in thongs on the beach. Oh well. At least one of us is happy. Now switching to the beer and pistachios diet for a few days until we return to BKK.

Buy your misses a thong, and you can both be happy.

Yeah when i said Bangtao that's what I meant (Laguna), for a hotel tourist. A good range of restaurants, Villa, Central,  and the long beach

Lot of expats in Rawai and not as touristy as say Kata/Karon.
