My recent trip to Phuket is all I can think about right now. To be honest, I wasn’t completely ecstatic about going to Thailand in the month of April when temperatures are soaring and humidity is at its peak. Yes, it’s an ideal setting for a tan but I didn’t intend on getting scorched! The first thing you need to keep in mind if you are planning to go to Phuket is a good sun screen lotion with a high SPF. This ensures that you only get a tan but no sun burns!
Bangkok airport seems to be quite the run of the mill as far as duty free is concerned. No specialties there (other than it actually looks quite a lot like a storage unit). There are a couple of local treats which tasted yummy and I purchased a few to gift to my friends back home. As soon as I reached Phuket, the humidity greeted me in full force and I thanked my good sense for the anti-frizz serum I was carrying that made my hair stay in place!
During my three day stay in Phuket I didn’t feel bored even for a moment. The Fantasea show in Kamala beach held every night is a delight to watch for all age groups. The Simon Cabaret show is even better. Looking at those gorgeous ladies perform I wondered how on earth could they actually be men! The Phee Phee Island tour is for water babies and I loved every second of it- travelling by ferry, swimming and snorkeling in the wild water was a breathtaking experience. The city tour wasn’t altogether very exciting since there wasn’t much to see apart from the gemstones gallery.
Not being a seafood lover I kind of avoided the local food and stuck to good old Burger King and McDonalds. However, the street sellers had exotic pancake crepes to offer which were filling as well as delicious. Phuket felt like a great short travel destination since the city has lots to offer but soon you’re left admiring just the beaches!
