Phuket Trip 2013 - Holiday Inn Express Patong Beach Phuket Part 1
PLEASE ASK PERMISSION BEFORE YOU RE POST MY PHOTOS ON TO YOUR BLOG. THERE ARE SOME BLOGGERS WHO DID NOT ASK MY PERMISSION AND REPOST MY PHOTOS WITHOUT THE COURTESY OF LINKING BACK TO MY BLOG. THIS IS LIKE STEALING. PEOPLE, I HAVE SPEND MUCH TIME TAKING PHOTOS AND DOING HOMEWORK ON MY TRAVELLING INFORMATION AND KINDLY SHARE THESE INFORMATION TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN THEM. IF NECESSARY I WILL POST SCREEN SHOT OF YOUR BLOG TO SHOW YOUR BAD MANNERS OF STEALING MY PHOTOS. THE MOST DISGUSTING THING THEY DID WAS TO SCREEN SHOT MY PHOTO AND CORP OFF MY BLOG TITLE AND REPOST IN THEIR BLOG. We decided to stay at Holiday Inn Express at Patong Beach (not to be confused with Holiday Inn Resort also at Patong Beach), cause it was a new hotel that just opened beginning of this year. As it was so new, the taxi driver did not know its location so best to print out the address and telephone number of the hotel. Great thing about the new hotel was that the room was very clean and it was only less than 5 mins walk to the beach. But took us about 15 to 20 minutes walk to Jungceylon Mall and also 15 minutes walk to Bangla Road. Forget about taking the tuk tuk cause they charge very high rates for a short distance unless you are in a group of four or six if not it was not worth the fare. The swimming pool was not very big but great for some swimming. The first room assigned to us was bad cause of the leaking air conditioner but they later changed us to a better room (I was hoping they upgrade us to a suite for all the inconveniece lol). Front Office Laundry Room - 100 baht for washing with detergent and another 100 baht for drying. Of couse hubby and me make use of the washing machine services. They even comes with ironing board. Two glass bottles of mineral water per day.
