First stop: a spa. The one we ended up (randomly) choosing was very nice. Inside, the decor reminded me of any nice US day spa, and for only 250 Baht (which is just over $7 US) each, we got hour-long massages. Che opted for the Thai massage, I chose (of course) a foot massage. SO nice. We are definitely going back at least once, maybe twice, before the end of the week. When you consider we spent more than that just to look at some butterflies, it was definitely a great value. After the spa, we grabbed delicious cheap food at a random restaurant in Phuket Town and headed back to get a good night's rest for our big snorkeling trip the next day.
