***This was a little lazy kind of Trip as both of us are full time working in Singapore so just wanted to chill most of the time.***
If you are searching of gorgeous beach destinations in Asia with perfect mix of Culture,luxury, tropical life and a little bold wild nightlife then all you need is a trip to Phuket :)
Phuket is one of the busiest tourist destination in the world so if you are not a big fan of crowd then please plan your trip in OFF SEASON(which is also somewhat crowded though). I don't know why but I always underestimated Thailand as a tourist place because someone like me who prefers serene destinations with exotic nature view but I finally decided to give it a shot and experience one of its magical island. Believe me, Thailand is a lovely place to be especially in a limited budget. The biggest spend of my vacation was the resort, rest everything was all in pocket.
Tips while planning a trips to Phuket-
- Try to book your ticket on Tuesday afternoon and you can also prebook your cab (pay by cash).
- Buy SIM card from Airport only(299 Bht for 8 days). If you are hiring cabs outside, this sim would help you to track your route and explore places.
-You can keep ready-made food packets with you, if you are a pure vegetarian soul like me. It's really tough to
-Visa on arrival process can take long, so please while you are filling form ask your partner to stand in queue for both of you.
-There is no parking fee in most of the tourist areas and don't worry its safe.
-If planning to visit Phi Phi then keep a waterproof pouch for Phone in advance.
-In our case there was no sea urchin there so choose wisely if you really want to buy their 350 bhatt shoe or not(we prefer it with flip-flops only)
-Bargain, Bargain and Bargain!!!!
