Notes by traveldiary007 on Sunday, July 21st, 2013 under Phuket
I booked the tour at my favorite tour agency in Phuket, http://www.phuketthailand-travel.com for only 2,100 THB (US86.00) for the two of us. The travel includes 2 way pick-up from and to hotel at 7:45AM; visit to Suwannakuha Temple inside a cave, James Bond Island, free lunch at Muslim Village and Cashew Nut Factory. The tour will end at 5PM.
Suwannakuha Temple and its Buddhas:
There was an entrance fee of 20THB (US0.90) to be able to enter the cave. We stayed here for around 40 minutes and we headed to the pier for the long tail boat to send us to James Bond Island. It was raining, not that hard but enough for us to get wet.
Going to James Bond Island:
After at James Bond Island, they tour us to Gems Gallery when it should be the Cashew Nuts Factory. It is the world’s biggest jewellery store. You can see the worker inside moulding the gems into jewellery and it is open for public.
After the tour, the driver dropped us near the hotel, not in front of the hotel so we have to walk back going there. We saw a tour agency on our way and decided to book something for tomorrow’s activity. We decided the Elephant ride tour since Jill haven’t experience it yet. We bought the tour for only 55oTHB (USD23.00) per person instead of the normal 850THB (USD35.00). I wonder why it was so cheap that when I booked the tour before it was the normal 850THB. The tour that we booked runs for 45 minutes. Well, let’s see what’s in store for us tomorrow.
