Phuket Weather

A sunny Sunday

Saturday afternoon and night was again dry and hot, and this thankfully continued into Sunday - I do like to have nice weather on my day off.

We made a slow, leisurely start to Sunday, went for some cheap food upstairs in Tesco Lotus, then headed down the road about 20 minutes to Chalong Temple (Wat Chalong), which is Phuket's largest temple, and also the most visited by locals and tourists alike.

Chalong Temple, Sunday 6th August

It was a hot day for walking around the temple, which covers a wide area and has several buildings. Had to dive into the nearest 7-11 for refreshments...luckily you can't get more than a couple of hundred meters in Phuket without a 7-11 or a "Family Mart" or a little local shop (for local people, there's nothing for you here). Later in the afternoon, I went with my daughter to see a caged bird competition in Kathu village. Yep, there sure were a lot of birds. All chirping away, which is what they were being judged on.

Monday is another hot one, I've caught the sun today riding the bike down to Chalong, about 20 minutes ride from Patong, but also had to put on my raincoat for a few minutes.
