We reached Phuket at 8.15am,Thailand time(Malaysia time is 9.15am)
As soon as we met the tour guard, Mr Prasit, our Phuket city tour started immediately.

Our first stop were at T-Shirt factory.

After visitied to T-Shirt factory, we went to a shop that sell local food.

Ini bagus!

Do you know among us, who is the "Champion"/"King" of shopping at this shop??? Look at the picture below.

Look at the building along the road, don't you feel that we are now at Malacca??According to Chinese Calendar, Lunar Month 0f September is one of the God of Buddha - "Jiu Wang Ye"'s (九王爷) birthday. Phuket's Buddist is very concern about this festival. They will be in vagetarian for nine days just to celebrate this festival.
And, we vistited to the biggest Jiu Weng Ye temple at Phuket.
According to Mr prasit, those who wear white shirt and white pants means he/she is in vagetarian within this period.

We prayed there too.

After pryaing, we headed to McDonald to try the McD Pork Burger. (Very sorry to our tour guard who has to accompany us while we were eating the burger but he was in vagetarian at that time!)
We were brought to Honey Factory after that.

Then we visitied to Chasher Nut factory.

This is how the chaser nut looks like.
The biscuits that made from chaser nut.
We tried the ice chaser nut drinks too! (Chaser nut juice mix with soda water) It taste really great!
After that, we visited to wat Chulong.

A place that used to put 舍利子 (Don't know what to call in English)
