I never thought I would find a place where paleness is reveared instead of pitied... mental! Thai women shouting "Do not ruin your lovely skin" at me when I started turning from a see through colour to pink and then having beach umbrellas sneakily put up next to me!
We caught THE bumpiest bus to Phuket - thank god for sickness tablets eh! Phuket seems like the much seedier Thai version of Benidorm - cool but tacky! We Went on a boat trip to Phi Phi to see the stunning island where 'The Beach' was filmed, so lovely and I got to go snorkeling, which felt so un-natural.
