Phuket Trip - Patong Beach - The Aim Patong Hotel - Banzaan Night Markets
Our first holiday of the year
4D3N Phuket Trip
Neither did we know that early January is the month of monsoon season in Thailand, almost raining every day, on and off. Thus, our initial snorkeling trip was cancelled due to bad weather.
Hopeless Not! We have found some exciting activities to do during raining season. Thank God!
(read until the end).
But before that, let me review the hotel we've stayed
$86++/night for 2 paxs without breakfast
*Tip: book the hotel 1-2 week before your departure date, the price will start to drop. But if it is public holiday in Thailand, the price might not change. I have checked that the highest price is $200/night during peak season
They serve breakfast set menu selection rather than the usual buffet style, Saw some people having it and the portion was petite.
However, if you are going for day trip, it will be best to purchase room rate inclusive of breakfast, as the shop nearby only open around 10am. There's a morning market nearby but no ready food. Usually, those day trip will depart from your hotel around 7am - 7.45am.
Or alternative, Buy in advance! you can get some loaves and takeaway Salad in Junceylon Supermarket (Big C).
Room & Service
Got a great deal!
The room is awesome

Even though, the hotel is not located along Patong beach but I felt that it is near to most of the main vicinity in Patong.
1. Night Market (Just next to our hotel)
2. Banzaan fresh Market (2 mins walk)
3. Junceylon (5 mins walk)
4. Bangla Boxing Stadium (Opp our hotel and our hotel room can have secret free viewing:P)
5. Patong Beach ( 10-15 mins walk)
Almost all the Thais staffs that I have met in Phuket is able to communicate in English.
Similarly, our hotel reception is able to speak English and is very friendly whenever we ask them about enquirers. Some may hesitate awhile but speak slowly to them and they will understand your meaning.
Rating - 4/5
Banzaan Night Market
