We had booked the flight for the day From Phuket, Thailand to Penang, Malaysia. Unfortunately there were only two flights to choose between, and when thinking too long, only one choice was left, namely late departure at 9.00 pm local time. When we knew the fact, we bought some extra time from the hotel.
We had breakfast, and aimed to walk along the beach after that, but the water level was high, so we didn’t get that far. We just decided to take it easy, and the hotel pool was great place for that.
When final packing was done and luckages were left to the reseption, we still had time to eat dinner in hotel restaurant before the taxi would take us to the airport.
The trip to the airport was very interesting. It was rush hour, so the driver tried to be smart and drove along smaller streets. We got true general view of how ordinary Phuket looks like. And that is totally fine, but when you have the plane to catch, it is not that enjoyable. Fortunately everything went well after all, and we arrived Penang as planned.
Time in Maleysia is one hour ahead Thailand’s time, so even if the flight time was just one hour, our arrival time was 11.10 pm. Short visit to the ATM and then to taxi, which took us to the hotel. We checked us in and entered the room just before midnight. Bed time was passed couple of hours ago, so no need to think what to do next.
