Initially, we're planning to go for snorkeling trip during our Day 2, but due to bad weather. our plan was cancelled. Therefore, we proceed with alternative.
We've decided to visit Phuket Town instead

On the way over, there is a S-turn hill slopes, Indeed, It is not very safe to ride a bike and especially during raining season.
Here we are at Phuket Town!
It is a town that is filled with historical architecture
I felt that I am back to the 1980s
It's Lunch Time!
We want to try some local delicacies, hence, we saw good recommendation from Tripadvisor that Lock Tien Food Court have cheap and localized Phuket food
I have ordered Mee Nan Tom Yam Noodle, and it was indeed delicious,
but the portion is not very big, so do prepare to order a few more bowls if you are big eater.
After lunch, we decided to explore nice cafes since it is still raining
We've found some nice cafes along the street.
a.k.a Baan Teelanka is open daily 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.
It consists of 2 main activities that you can play for at least half a day.
Upside down house: Adult 350 Baht, Kids 190 Baht (4 to 11 years old)
There's other activities as well, such as:
Live room escape, Tuk Tuk adventure and 3D virtual cinemas
(do click the link for more info)
The Maze @ Tree House
The Maze is located beside the upside down house, As it is drizzling and the place is for outdoor activity. hence, we didn't go for it
However, it seems to be nice raining around, especially for kids
Upside Down House
Welcome to the world of anti-gravity!
*Rudy saw a bra on the floor
What happened when Rudy was hungry while waited too long for my cooking...
when we saw a something on the floor
Spider man and spider women on the wall
enjoying our wonderful time
Just outside of upside down house, there is a 3D art street
Round 1! Fight!
*Take note, It will be best to arrange with your taxi/tuk tuk driver who bought you over to fetch you back later again. As it was not easy to flap for a taxi here.
There is free wifi in the premises but was very slow and always disconnected. hence, we are not able to access to our Grab App in our mobile. Thus, we asked the counter lady to help us contact the taxi driver who bought us here to pick us up again.
