Going to Phuket Again???

I had my spinal surgery done in October 2007, and since then have not done any travelling.

Well all that changed when it was off to Phuket from 18 to 21st Feb!
First reactions from my staff? "Phuket Again???"
Yup, this would have been my 6th or 7th time there after the tsunami in 2004, i forget really.

But this time it's different. 'Cos it was FREE! ha ha, and with a 5 star hotel to boot.
I'd been 'given' a free trip to act a a guide for a colleague who won the trip at our company 's Dinner and Dance last year.

The hotel? The newly built Millenium Resort Phuket at Patong Beach!
3 days 2 night worth $1500 for the package including airfares!

I won't go into details about the Millenium Resort itself, as you can read my short review at Tripadvisor website. click here to read that:
But here are some pictures you might like.

What's so great about Phuket?
For me it's the spa.
Phuket really is nothing much after a while but the spas there all make up for it.
From top end ones like Banyan Tree to simple setups by the beach,.
My favourite being one called Let's Relax Spa, with 2 branches at Patong.
I would rate this as mid upper range with reasonable prices. To be continued....
