Unfortunately it rained everyday we were in Phuket, often raining so hard that the streets flooded. We managed to explore the town some in between downpours though.
|Pretty much the attitude around here|
One day we took a bus to Patong beach. In the morning we were hopeful the sun would hold out. After 5 minutes on the bus the clouds rushed in and we were trapped in a nasty storm. Luckily we had our umbrella. After taking refuge in a KFC, we made it to the beach, which was abandoned due to the weather.
|Thanks KFC, for reminding us it's "So good as you remember it".|
After spending multiple rain filled days in Phuket, we decided to head to Hat Yai, a small town near the border of Malaysia. It finally cleared up enough for us to explore the town and check out some of the small local markets.
|The guidebook said this was the best food in town. Unfortunately, the chicken still had blood on it. We ate it anyway.|

After a couple of nights in Hat Yai, we boarded a train to Malaysia. We'll try to post again soon.
