Bangkokista Kata beachin surffisirkukseen.

Uuvuttavalta kuullostava 12 tunnin bussimatka sujui yllättävänkin kevyesti. Jalkatilaa oli tarpeeksi, bussin ilmastointi oli ihme kyllä plussan puolella, eikä kuskikaan yrittänyt kellottaa uutta ennätystä kyseiselle etapille. Tosin olimme puolituntia myöhässä, mutta se nyt on aivan ymmärrettävää tämän mittaiselle matkalle.

Phuket towniin päästyämme oli tarkoitus mennä vain lepäämään matkan päätteeksi. Tapasimme kuitenkin majatalon alakerran baarissa kolme brittiä. He olivat opettamassa englantia täällä paikallisille lapsille ja nuorille. Ilta venyikin aamun pikkutunneille saakka uusien ystäviemme seurassa. Lyhyeksi jääneen yön jälkeen, oli aika suunnata kohti rantoja.

Phuket on tunnettu paitsi upeista rannoista, mutta myös villistä yöelämästä. Patong on rannoista tunnetuin ja samalla myös kehittynein. Haittapuolena on varsinkin sesonkiaikana turistien määrä sekä päällekäyvät kauppiaat. Phuketissa valikoimaa löytyy onneksi joka lähtöön. Miksi siis valita Kata beach?

Kata beach tarjoaa varsinkin näin sadekauden aikaan otolliset mahdollisuudet surffaukseen. Ranta sopii hyvin myös kaltaisilleni ajoittelijoille. Aallot murtuvat rannan läheisyydessä, löytyy hiekkapohja, ei kiviä tai koralleja eikä aallot kasva liian suuriksi. Tuulisella säällä aaltojen korkeus oli 1,5-2 metrin välissä muuten vain noin metrin korkuisia. Huhu kertoi, että parhaillaan aallot ovat yli 4 metrisiä. Aaltojen säännöllisyys voisi tosin olla parempi. Varsinkin tyynellä kelillä sitä oikeaa aaltoa sai välillä odottaa tuskastuttavan kauan.

Surffauksen ohella parasta antia oli kierrellä skootterin selässä ympäri saarta. Viikon aikana tulikin ajeltua päämäärättömästi yli 300km. Vuokrauksen hinta oli 200 bahtia / päivä, mutta pidemmäksi ajaksi vuokraamalla hinnasta voi aina tinkiä. Bensiini kustantaa noin kolmekymmentä bahtia per litra. Varsinaisia nähtävyyksiä ei saarelta oikein löydy rantoja lukuun ottamatta. Yksi jos pitäisi mainita niin, korkean kukkulan päällä sijaitseva suuri Buddha patsas on näkemisen arvoinen ja kaiken lisäksi vielä ilmainen. Saaren eteläkärjestä löytyy hieno niemimaa promthep cape.

Tekemistä Phuketista löytyy sitäkin enemmän. Voi esimerkiksi: surffata, sukeltaa, snorklata, riippuvarjoilla, ajaa vesijetillä, osallistua viidakkosafarille, harrastaa muay thaita, pelata golffia. Lisäksi löytyy mikroautorata sekä ampumarata. Näihin harrastuksiin ja aktiviteetteihin kannattaa sitten varata rahaa, koska aivan ilmaisia ne eivät kuitenkaan ole.

Jos saavut tänne syys – lokakuun vaihteessa niin silloin järjestettävä viikon kestävä kasvissyöjä festivaali on todella ainutlaatuinen ja mielenkiintoinen juhla. Tästä lisää seuraavassa postauksessa. Varoitan jo valmiiksi, että kuvat voivat olla aika raakoja.

Phuket tuntuu olevan reppureissaaja piireissä melkeinpä kirosana. Itselle tulikin positiivisena yllätyksenä, ettei paikka ainakaan näin sadekauden aikana ole ammuttu täyteen turisteja. Paikka oli ennakko-odotuksiini nähden hyvinkin rauhallinen ja siksi sitä voikin hyvin mielin suositella matkakohteeksi. Huippu sesongin aikaan mielipiteeni saattaisi olla toinen.

Yksi asia mikä pisti erityisesti silmään oli venäjän-kielen määrä täällä. Lähes joka ravintolassa oli ruokalistat englanniksi sekä venäjäksi. Käytännössä kolmas virallinen kieli täällä. Venäläis-turisteja oli myös varmaan joka kolmas vastaantulija. Tämä johtuu kuulemma todella halvoista pakettimatkoista, mitä heille myydään tukkukaupalla vuosittain. Tämä invaasio tuo mieleeni Goan ilmapiirin. Samanlainen uudisrakentaminen ollut siellä jo pitkään käynnissä.

No nyt on ne ensimmäiset aallot korkattu. Tämä tulikin hyvänä harjoituksena ennen siirtymistä Indonesian väljemmille vesille. Viikon harjoittelun jälkeen homma alkaa sujua jo jotenkuten. Vielä on toki paljon petrattavaa, mutta ei sitä opi muuta kuin kokeilemalla. Viikon jälkeen on myös kroppa täynnä pieniä mustelmia ja hiertymiä, mutta olo on kuitenkin onnellinen kun sen kuparisen sai vihdoin rikottua.
