Phuket Thailand – Patong Beach

A final post on Phuket Thailand, tonight we are at Patong Beach and it is a show. This is where most come for a party, prostitution, and to get a glimpse of the beautiful Ladyboys (men) as they prance around the street. We park ourselves at one of the bars on the street, order some drinks and just watch the people, so much fun … ;)ThailandPhuket2013-265

If you want a picture of a Ladyboy you need pay them 100 Baht ($3). If you take their picture and don’t pay them you get chased down the street followed by screeching obscenities. This family did not pay and I thought a fight was about to breakout…ThailandPhuket2013-250

I don’t think this is a place for children but many tourists bring their kids here. After some time of trying to understand what she is looking at I’m sure this poor little girl will have years of enjoyable therapy and an ample supply of mood inhibiting drugs.ThailandPhuket2013-256

This is not legal, this is not okay – I don’t mean the prostitution or the Ladyboys, I’m talking about this guy in the hat with a protected endangered Loris. As cute as they are, resist patronizing the people with gibbons, Loris, or other endangered species.ThailandPhuket2013-248

Well this is enough silicon for me. Phuket is so much more than this and the place and people are very friendly, check out the previous few posts and you will see why. The Thai food, I can’t say enough about it, I’ll be back.
