Ping pong shows aren’t as fun as you think because in the name of a show “travel experience”, the performers are forced to shoot out Ping Pong balls, razors, darts and even a live bird from their body parts which feels more somber than silly.
There are many Elephants in Phuket, but they are often mistreated or abused as both physically and mentally, tourist rides are really damaging on elephants.
The local markets have jacked-up prices, as do the local tuk-tuks, which are usually the cheapest way to get around in Thai cities.

Except be hounded by the many hawkers who patrol the area, there’s not much to do here. The other bad part of this is that it’s a long journey.
