Situated towards the east of Phuket International Airport on the north-east of Phuket island, Pa Klok is an ideal base to relish in serenity and explore the naturally beautiful and exotic mangrove forests.Paklok is located on the east coast of Phuket heading up towards the Khao Phra Thaew National Park. The small village stretches east from the Heroines monument all the way to the outer eastern coasts. It is home to many of the most rural tourist attractions such as the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre, the Tonsai Waterfall and the Bang Pae Waterfall.The small village that encompasses Paklok is mostly inhabited by locals. There you’ll find a few amenities such as local stores, a Thai school, a gas station and the national park. However, closer towards the monument, you will find several Thai restaurants, a few 7-11 and Super Cheap stores as well as the newly built Precious Gems Museums and Jewelry Store. The roads leading out towards the outer most points of Paklok are very poorly light and quite windy, so caution while driving at night is recommended as there have been many (non fatal) accidents out there..

What'ss the best street food by the RAT VILLA, or around Paklok?
There is so many, but for me that's easy. Around the RAT VILLA, like anywhere around Paklok or Phuket in Thailand, there will be little grilled chicken (Kai Yang) street stalls. The chicken is often eaten with sticky rice (Khao Niaow) and sweet chilli sauce. Yum!. Try it for breakfat. Real goooooood 🙂

Is it OK to drink water from the tap in RAT VILLA, or around Paklok on Phuket island, Thailand?
Personally I do NOT drink water from the tap on Phuket in Thailand, but they say you can? I suggest that you buy 6 pack bottled water from any local Paklok mini market around the RAT VILLA for drinking. The cheap clear, none branded, bottles, to me, are the best. I do though, as with other expats and locals around Paklok, brush my teeth with tap water, and use it for making tea / coffee etc, but only after boiling a few times. If you are unsure when you arrive to the RAT VILLA, stick to the bottled water.
Where is the best locations to watch the sunset on Phuket island, Thailand?
In my view the beach. Around the RAT VILLA is OK but the best places are: Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep), Big Buddha or Kata Rocks. Anywhere around the west / south side of Phuket, Thailand.
How much is a print of beer or larger in around the RAT VILLA or Paklok?
The beer or larger prices around RAT VILLA or Paklok on Phuket island is: Domestic Beer (0.5 liter draught) is around 70 / 90.00฿ while Imported Beer (0.33 liter bottle) will be around 100.00 ฿. Nightclubs, and higher end venues can be a lot more and supermarkets / mini markets will be a bit cheaper. Check out the 'Happy Hour' signs as you walk or drive by. Most bars will have them.

Are flight prices higher on Paklok / Phuket island, Thailand national holidays?
Bottom line is 'Yes'. This goes for national holidays in your own Country also. Try avoid flying in heavy traffic holidays by travelling from / to Paklok or Phuket island, Thailand before or after any major holidays.
Is there a smoking lounge at Phuket International Airport (HKT) in Thailand?
Bottom line is yes. Once you leave the RAT VILLA to go to Phuket International Airport simply go to the departure lounge, after immigration, and its by a small coffee shop. Be warned. The smoking room is very small and even before you lite up it feels like you have already had 5 cigs 🙂 VAPERS BE AWARE! Vaping (e-cigarettes) is still banded in Thailand 'so say' due to health issues, but in reality for import tax issues. 'On the spot' fines, or threats of jail time by local police. IF you do vape, and do get stopped and fined, ask for a police report. That should be fun? Bottom line is to 'just buy cigs' for your holiday. Saves on the flaff. TIT.

Yes. You can get free Wi-Fi at Phuket airport (HKT)' by connecting to the airports access point. Simply log-in to the airport website, which pops up on your mobile/tablet browser once you arrive. As far as I know, or remember, there is also walled computers to use in the departure area also.
