Last day in Phuket.

We have afternoon flight to Jakarta today, so we still have some times to exploring around the hotel. The choise is between Patong Beach or Fresh Market Banzaan, we choose the last one. This market is located in the night market, so in the morning is wet market, in the night time is night market.

(Hari terakhir di Phuket.
Karena hari ini penerbangan malam ke Jakarta, kami masih punya waktu untuk keliling disekitar hotel. Pilihannya antara Patong beach atau Fresh Market Banzaan, akhirnya kami memilih pasar Banzaan. Banzaan market ini terletak di night market yang kemarin kita pergi, jadi kalau pagi adalah pasar, kalau malam jadi pasar malam.)

Walking to Banzaan Market, we are passing Jungcelyon Mall again. My friend asked me to buy a leather bag but I couldn’t find it. It’s almost Chinese New Year, Jungcelyon Mall is filled with the Bear House. The bears dressed like princes and princess, decorated with lights that add to the beauty of colorful Jungcelyon Mall, although it was still morning.

Around Banzaan Market, there are many shops along the roadside, selling clothes, bags, souvenirs, foods, etc. The price is still negotiable although not much (or I am not good at bargaining?). But the price is already cheap hehehe ..

Enter to Banzaan Market, we seea lot of shops selling Thailand’s snack. We are going more inside and see a wet market selling a variety of fresh food including shrimp, lobster, crab, fish, meats, vegies, etc. Then we go up. There are many food stalls which turned out to provide services to cook fresh foods that we buy below.

Many tourists (mostly Chinese tourists), bought lobsters and crabs from the wet market, then pick one of the food court and tell them to cook it according to what they want. Unfortunately, I didn’t know about that, maybe next time I will buy lobsters and crabs then ask them to cook it with the spicy sauce . Yuuum ..

Finish eating, we are still exploring several clothing store before buy “some” summer clothes which are on sale. 

Back to the hotel (allowed late check out for one room), we pack up and lie down briefly before the driver from Mr. Chia, SRC Travel (http://www.phuketsrctravel.com/) pick us up. One way trip to the airport is 700 Bath (about AUD $ 28 or Rp . 270,000) So long Phuket, wish to see you soon in few years time.)

(Berjalan kaki ke Banzaan Market, melewati Jungcelyon Mall sambil mencari tas kulit pesanan teman (tapi ngak ketemu). Menyambut Tahun Baru Cina, Jungcelyon Mall dipenuhi dekor beruang dengan tema Bear House. Beruang-beruang dipakaikan baju ala prince dan princess, dihiasi lampu-lampu yang warna warni menambah indahnya Jungcelyon Mall walaupun hari masih pagi.

Disekitar Banzaan Market, banyak toko-toko dipinggir jalan yang menjual baju, tas, souvenirs, makanan dll. Harganya masih bisa ditawar walaupun ngak turun banyak (atau saya kurang bisa nawar yaa?). Tapi harganya memang udah murah kok hehehe..

Masuk ke Banzaan Market, kita disambut kedai-kedai makanan kecil khas Thailand. Setelah itu baru pasar basah menjual berbagai bahan makanan termasuk udang, lobster, kepiting, ikan dll. Kemudian kami naik keatas. Disana terdapat banyak food stalls yang ternyata menyediakan jasa memasak bahan makanan segar yang kita beli dibawah.

Banyak turis (sebagian besar turis China), yang membeli lobster dan kepiting dari bawah, kemudian memilih salah satu food stall yang ada diatas sini dan menyuruh mereka memasaknya sesuai dengan apa yang mereka mau. Sayang, saya terlambat tahu, mungkin lain kali saya beli lobster dan kepiting dulu dibawah baru dimasak sambel yang pedas. Yuuum..

Selesai makan, kami masih keliling diatas. Ada beberapa toko baju yang sempat kami masuki sebelum memborong “beberapa” baju musim panas yang lagi sale.

Kembali ke hotel (diperbolehkan late check out untuk 1 kamar), kami beberes dan tiduran sebentar sebelum dijemput supir dari Mr. Chia, SRC Travel (http://www.phuketsrctravel.com/). Perjalanan one way ke airport dikenakan 700 Bath (sekitar AUD$28 atau Rp. 270.000) So long Phuket, wish to see you soon in few years time.)
