Wandering around Patong is a curious exercise and I started to wonder if a lot of the Thais in Patong are similar to Dolphins – always smiling but no-one knows for sure if they are really happy. Sure the Thai people we met in Patong seemed happy and genuine but some of the people we didn’t meet had that Dolphin like smile - the Thai people who were working in bars full of drunken Aussies and Brits, or providing foot massages to large bags of old, brown leather that used to be Danish businessmen and Swedish hairdressers.
And as Molly says, haven’t any of these people heard of bras? There really are some people who are free and easy who could do with containing some of their excesses…..
As fun and easy as Patong was, we were glad to head North to investigate the beaches of the Khao Lak area.
