Phuket - Premium Outlet

Cashew Nut Factory and before heading to Phuket Premium Outlet, we had a stop at Wang Talang Lapidary Gem Factory. Wonder why? Oh, oh, I forgot, of course, for luring us to shop. Honestly, really and sincerely, I hate, I really hate such stops. Basically, like we all don't know? As I have already said, whether directly or indirectly, for you to shop. Cash, I don't think will do the shopping in Wang Talang Lapidary Gem Factory. So, better get ready to swipe your card. Look, we are talking about gemstones. Gemstones. Yes. Unless if you are one person who carry stags of cash? Now, I could have opted out from visiting this gem factory by sitting in the coach, then again, no harm down, albeit let me tell you that I have visited a couple of such factories before.

Our visit in Wang Talang Lapidary Gem Factory started off promisingly. A different kind of kick start, potentially, we sat through, lets say for 10 minutes, in the small studio to watch the documentary. Gemstones dug out, harvested, and gemcutting for shininess and sparkliness. Actually, quite an interesting documentary, but like I didn't know. Never mind, I suppose extra knowledge is another bag of common sense. I believe so. Once documentary was over, we were ushered into the large showroom. Buy if you are tempted, please do, opt between the various shapes and sizes of beautiful attractive gemstones.     

Photos are strictly prohibited inside, but sure, take as many shots outside. Within less than 5 minutes, I was out of the showroom. What for? I am not a gemstone collector, I rather save my money for "travelling around the world". I waited for about 15 minutes, and once the rest returned to entrance, we departed to arrive in Phuket premium outlet. Premium?? Tell me please, unless we are talking about Gucci, Prada, LV or even Coach, how can mid range brands be branded as premium? I don't know, I am really confused on this whole concept of such, I also call as factory outlet shopping.

Of course, nothing should potentially stop you from shopping, Please, go ahead. Your money, your call, your shopping deal. I, honestly, I have long given up on this madness, so called as premium shopping (Franciacorta Outlet Village Milan). Therefore, if you are expecting me to advice you on whether its worth shopping in Phuket Premium Outlet, sorry people, I can't. But, I can certainly give you an overview on what is like, in most factory or premium outlets. Two clues. Two. One is currency exchange, please do consider, if you have to, calculate before buying to find out whether it will be cheaper to shop back home, the other is, if you are fine with clearance sales or stock clearance. 

Are you now asking me what I did in Phuket Premium Outlet? Half an hour of walking around, for the next 1 1/2 hours, I sat at one of the benches while slowly sipping a drink. Boredomness! But once we departed to Patong, I literally jumped to happy days. Oh-no, hack again. Albeit rain lashing massively, we walked to the beach, while simultaneously, slyly trying to pip into the "boozy and women fun" night joints. Rain continued lashing, we gave up on battling it, we quickly walked to the nearest shopping mall, and had dinner in the food court. Nothing else, sadly, except returning back to Super Star Libra Cruise  
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support is utterly my pride and joy. Thank you everyone.
