Thailand Chronicles 9: Hat Rawai, Hat Kata & Hat Karon

Well, we never made it to Hat Patong.

However, we saw Kata and Karon as well as Rawai in Phuket. It was a busy day, motorcycling around the island after our usual stop at an internet cafe in the mid-afternoon.

Towards the evening, we wanted to take pictures of a sunset. We drove around trying to find the best stop. To our dismay, most of the beaches that we knew were on the wrong side of the island. So we drove and found Promthep Cape, the “best sunset in Phuket”.

As promised, the sunset was pretty damn good. I took loads of pictures. The best ones have the sunset and the moon in them as well. I was surprised to see a Japanese woman with the same setup as me, a Nikon D200 and a 18-200mm VR lens. It is the second time that I have seen someone with the same photographic equipment on this trip.

I must have taken about 300 photos of the sunset. It was great, however a strange cloud blocked the end of the sunset and obscured some of the colors. Ah well, can’t have everything I guess.

The air-con broke down in our hotel room. At 900BHT per night, it isn’t the best deal, but lets us stay close to our friends. Still, I will make a bit of a fuss tomorrow morning, because sleeping without aircon in Thailand is really hard.

It is 11PM in Thailand right now, and we had to drive around on the main highway for a few minutes before finding a internet cafe. The word cafe is a tangent, because it’s just a place with PCs to surf the net. I can’t seem to upload any pics, so that will have to wait until this weekend.
