Phromthep Cape and Trickeye Museum

It now feels like our holiday in Southeast Asia is well and truly behind us. June feels like a lifetime ago, as does the hot weather we experienced!

When we first arrived in Phuket the concierge told us we were very fortunate to have missed the rain - which apparently went on for over a week. We did have a lot of sunshine, yes, but we also had a few days when it rained and rained. Luckily (I'm not sure they thought so) our friends were crook (60% of the family) so we hung around at the resort and chilled. But then on day 3 of doing nothing we all decided to hire a driver and a van for the day and go do something. Off we drove in the pouring rain to the bottom of the island, through deserted resort towns and small busy villages. We stopped for picture taking here and there.

Phromthrep Caape

On the top of the hill stands a busy car park, although apparently due to rain it was less busy for us than was usual. The view from the cape is so beautiful, and we were fortunate it had stopped raining while we were there.


Our driver then took us to a "traditional" restaurant - except with tourist price tags. It was nice, but we expected to be able to eat crab and lobster at local prices. So we didn't eat crab and lobster.

Trickeye Museum

This was a fun place to visit. Located in Phuket town it was a bit expensive for entry at 500 baht (~$NZD20.00) per person - easy capturing of tourist $. The museum is more like an art gallery of 3D scenes for picture taking.

It was a good way to spend a rainy afternoon.
