Asia is sweeter the second time around. I picked Phuket, Thailand to be my next destination in Asia for this year. From London to Dubai to Phuket, it was about 16 hours in total. Really enjoying the view from above. Spectacular!
After the long flight and an hour drive from the airport to my hotel, I decided to have a quick dip and a fresh cold drink before I explored the famous Patong Beach.
This place offers a lot of activities and services in the morning like parasailing, cable skiing, tattoo and massage. At night, it turns into a party district full of bars, night clubs and other events such as Muay Thai boxing. Never a dull moment here!
TRI TRANG BEACH
A good friend of mine informed me about this quiet beach nearby. I took a cab and paid 300 Baht. In my experience, air-conditioned cab and tuktuk has the same price where the starting point is both 200 Baht.
There was a private resort and a restaurant and to my surprise… adorable baby elephants!
It was really a hidden paradise. The sea was very calm and perfect for snorkeling.
