Terrific Thailand – Part 1: Patong

 

Start of Bangla Road – reknown party street in Patong, Phuket

 

Sawadee Ka everyone! That’s hello in Thai.

Let me start off this post by saying that this is NOT a sponsored post at all. I saved, hustled, waited, done my research and eventually we travelled to Thailand earlier this year. I have divided this post into 3 parts as we had the privilege of visiting 3 locations in Thailand. I researched quite a bit and eventually got a terrific deal via Holiday Factory. It was about R12 000 (ZAR) each for the Etihad return flights to Thailand, including all private car transfers and water transfers, accommodation for 10 nights including breakfast, and we stayed in Patong, Phi Phi Islands and Krabi. I paid for the booking in March 2018 and we flew in September 2018.

I am mentioning the costs because:

a) It was a really good deal

b) People always ask me how much it all cost

c) Sharing is caring 🙂

d) Once you do some research online, one can still find good travel packages, in this case it was via Holidayfactory.co.za

And with Oh Ship! the cherry on top is that you get 72 hours of some of South Africa’s top DJs and comedians, to keep you entertained, while you sip on our sangria.
