The Beach Bar, Bang Tao Beach, Phuket

One of my favourite things about visiting phuket before had been the location of or hotel on Bang Tao beach as it was bursting with great value beach bars and restaurants all within walking distance of our hotel.

I spent a few days at the beginning of October in Phuket, relaxing and recovering from the F1 madness. I last visited Phuket 5 years ago for the wedding of one of my closest friends and was looking forward to going back a second time.
