It's an quondam surface area of Phuket amongst lots of history, where the Phuket Vegetarian Festival originated as well as was the ticker of the tin mining manufacture inwards Phuket for 200 years. And it's where nosotros live, every bit practise thousands of other people. There are older streets as well as lots of novel housing inwards Kathu. Lots of shops, schools, hairdressers, temples as well as the strange aircon dealer as well as vet. You know, normal everyday life. From Patong to Kathu takes 10 - xv minutes past times car. Patong is tourism central. Kathu is where people genuinely live!

On the agency domicile from operate final week, I had noticed tents as well as a modest phase beingness erected along the route betwixt Ket Ho junction as well as Kathu village. So on Fri nighttime nosotros went to await at what was going on. This was a real modest local fair for the local community, the municipality basically blocked off one-half the route for a few hundred metres as well as inwards came nutrient stalls, games for kids, as well as the start affair nosotros saw, trip the low-cal fantastic toe performances past times kids from the local schools.

We watched a few of the dances as well as and hence took a niggling walk along the street. It was pretty crowded, given that everything was packed onto 1 side of the route as well as at that topographic point were stalls lining both sides. The kids had already seen that they could practise some painting, hence nosotros dropped them at the icon stall where they could entertain themselves for twenty Baht as well as acquire a canvass as well as paint, sit down downwardly as well as practise a masterpiece.

It was a fun thing.. real Thai... "Oh what the heck, lets unopen off the route as well as receive got a party!". And a LOT of people were there, or it seemed similar a lot inwards the narrow space. I liked this bunch of kids all dressed upward as well as painted dancing amongst bamboo poles.. I intend this is a Northern Thai tradition actually, but given the break of immigrant workers inwards Phuket, no surprise to encounter it here.

Meanwhile, our boy had completed his Ultraman painting, as well as our missy had done a cute cat. Our kids similar these events, inwards fact they appear to bask doing pretty much whatever nosotros do. I am thinking of writing a "Phuket for Kids" page, but from my indicate of view, I tell only receive got your kids along to whatever you lot do, except perhaps shopping as well as massage. It's dissimilar every bit residents but wherever nosotros go, our kids encounter something new, as well as larn something I hope. On Sabbatum nosotros took a niggling detour as well as drove circular some dorsum roads inwards the ticker of the isle passing huge fields of pineapples. We stopped to demo the kids - this is what pineapples await similar when they're growing. Now they know, as well as I tell you, kids bask knowing things. I had no thought how pineapples grew until I saw them here! Anyway, here's Ultraman:

And a quick discussion for our sponsors... it needed a proficient flake of back upward past times the local constabulary to run the event, to buy the farm along traffic flowing since the fair took upward one-half the road! This guy below is a local police officer who nosotros encounter often, sometimes on duty, sometimes inwards local restaurants.
