The highlight of any visit to Patong Beach in Phuket is the weekly island gay tour. For an all-inclusive fee of 1,950 baht per person, you are brought by minibus and speedboat to an unspoiled island to the east of Phuket. When you emerge from the water, a tempting barbecue lunch will have been prepared for you. As well as a wide choice of meats and sauces, there is plenty of fresh fruit. All of these items can be washed down by a vast supply of free drink, ranging from water and fruit juices to different beers. Any special dietary needs will be met upon request. With up to 13 different nationalities taking part on these trips, they present an ideal occasion to make new friends, which you might not otherwise meet during your stay. After that, all go home tired and happy! The trip starts every saturday at 11.00 from Connect and returns again to Connect around 19.00 Total transport time each way is around 1 hour -- 30 minutes by air conditioned minibus and 30 minutes by speedboat. Please book your trip in advance at Connect, in person or by email. Note that the trip may be cancelled in stormy weather. The all-inclusive fee is 1950 baht per person.

SafeTips of the Week
-- Safety at the Beach
Protect your skin: Sunlight contains two kinds of UV rays -- UVA increases the risk of skin cancer, skin aging, and other skin diseases. UVB causes sunburn and can lead to skin cancer. Limit the amount of direct sunlight you receive between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and wear a sunscreen with a sun protection factor containing a high rating such as 15.
Drink plenty of water regularly and often even if you do not feel thirsty. Your body needs water to keep cool. Avoid drinks with alcohol or caffeine in them. They can make you feel good briefly but make the heat's effects on your body worse. This is especially true with alcoholic beverages, which dehydrates the body.
Watch for signs of heat stroke: Heat stroke is life-threatening. The victim's temperature control system, which produces sweating to cool the body, stops working. The body temperature can rise so high that brain damage and death may result if the body is not cooled quickly. Signals include hot, red, and dry skin; changes in consciousness, rapid, weak pulse, and rapid, shallow breathing. Move the person to a cooler place. Quickly cool the body by wrapping wet sheets around the body and fan it. If you have ice packs or cold packs, place them on each of the victim's wrists and ankles, in the armpits and on the neck to cool the large blood vessels. Watch for signals of breathing problems and make sure the airway is clear. Keep the person lying down.
Wear eye protection: Sunglasses are like sunscreen for your eyes and protect against damage that can occur from UV rays. Be sure to wear sunglasses with labels that indicate that they absorb at least 90 percent of UV sunlight.
Wear foot protection: Many times, people's feet can get burned from the sand or cut from glass in the sand.
Spinal Injury Prevention
Don't dive headfirst into any unknown water. Remember, the beach ocean floor may change its shape constantly.
In shallow water, don't dive headfirst toward the bottom into oncoming waves.
In shallow water, don't stand with your back to the waves.
Don't jump or dive from a cliff, pier, jetty or bridge.
Don't swim near piers or breakwaters. The currents here may be very strong, even for the best of swimmers.
Stay clear of boats. They take time to change direction, and they may not even see you.
Swim parallel to the shore. If you swim out too far, you may be too tired to swim back.

This day trip starts at 11.00 AM from Connect when we will go by mini bus to Sire Island (just outside Phuket town) where we jump into the speedboat taking us to Koh Kai island. The bus ride is around 30 minutes and the boat trip 30 minutes. The lunch on the island will be a beach barbecue with chicken and pork satay, sausage, different dipping sauces, bread and fresh fruit. There will also be plenty of free drinks, fruit juice, beer, soft drinks and water. If you have any special requests for food and drinks please let us know.

For reservations send email to or contact Connect Guesthouse in Paradise complex. 

The price for transport, food and drinks is1950 baht/person. Reservations required. Groups minimum 10 persons. The trip might be cancelled in case of bad weather conditions

Please observe
This tour to this deserted Island includes certain risks. We are far away from civilization and accidents might happen. If you have a medical condition please let the staff know in advance. If you go swimming or snorkeling please use a life jacket provided even if you are a good swimmer. Use protective footwear when wading in shallow waters to prevent cuts from corals or Sea Urchins. Do never swim alone. Common sense should prevail.
