Phuket Town

Day 9

Today will be our last day/night in Phuket and in Thailand for tomorrow we will be saying good bye. We woke early and decided to spend the day shopping, site seeing, and exploring Phuket Town. We first went to visit the weekend market where we picked up a stylish Thai umbrella. Jamie bought a green one with white flowers and I picked up a blue one with decorative trees and flowers. We also sample a lot of delicious boiled buttered corn on the cob, spicy sausages, grilled chicken, fishcakes, exotic fruit and even deep-fried insects which was definitely interesting but not a good idea… We then made our way to Monkey Hill where we heard this is the closest you can come to macaques. We enjoyed a show that was brought on by one of the locals and all he really did was call out to the named macaques and feed them various fruits. He assured us that these macaques are not aggressive and will not approach you however the macaques down at the temple will approach you so we’ve been told. We finished our day here at the Monkey Hill and headed back towards our hotel where we decided to absorb the last bit of sun down by the pool and relax before the flight home tomorrow. So much to do… so little time.
