Sawasdee Krub! I am here once again. Today, I am going to take you to Phuket. My trip is at the end of April and it gets started by flying there with Thai Airways from Bangkok.
This is a spectacular view I see before arriving in Phuket. I can't help but take a photo right away.
And I have finally arrived at Phuket International Airport.
After getting my luggage from the baggage claim area, I am here to get the car from the car rental service. It is Honda Jazz that will be taking me all around this time.
The car has been checked carefully and I am now ready to rock Phuket. The very first program is to go to Wat Phra Thong (Wat Phra Pud) in order to start off the trip well with the blessing.
After that, I am going to Laemhin Seafood Restaurant for lunch.
I order some foods right away. I have some iced coffee and watermelon smoothies while waiting for the foods to be served.
Then the foods start to come one after another. The first one is Laemhin-style Fried Rice.
Casseroled Shrimps with Glass Noodles is next.
Thai Coconut Chicken Soup comes third.
My stomach is filled up so it is time to go to the resort. I will be staying at Kalima Resort & Spa on this trip.
This is the Lobby area (photos of the resort's sign and Lobby area are taken at night).
Welcome Drink and cold towels are promptly served upon arrival.
Then it is time to check the room out and rest for a bit.
I choose to have dinner here in the resort for tonight.
The first dish for dinner is this Chicken Massaman Curry served with Roti and freshly cooked White Steamed Rice. It is very delicious.
Prawn Pad Thai is up next.
Dinner is done and it is time to recharge my energy to get ready for tomorrow. This is the view from my balcony.
The second day of my trip has come. I am going to Koh Mai Thon with Love Andaman today. Well, I didn't take a lot of photos at the pier because there are way too many people.
This is the speedboat that will take me to Koh Mai Thon.
The ride takes only 15 minutes to get to the island. Koh Mai Thon is as beautiful as it is known for but I like Koh Tachai more. Beaches at Koh Tachai is prettier as well from my point of view.
After being out snorkeling for a while, I am back on the island for lunch (I didn't take a lot of photos during this time either due to the same reason, too many people).
I still have time to chill on the beach for a bit before going back to the mainland.
I come back to the resort directly after a trip to Koh Mai Thon. I spend sometimes at the pool as well before dinner.
It is time for dinner and I am going to Raya Restaurant for that. Raya is a local restaurant famous for its local foods. If you eat here, don't miss Moo Hong, a slow braised Phuket pork dish.
The first signature menu of Raya is this Crabmeat Coconut Curry with Chaplo. All tables normally order this menu always. It is very tasty, I am telling you.
The second signature menu is Moo Hong. It is so good and flavorful. The meat is also totally tender.
Dip with Dried Shrimp Phuket Style is the next one.
The last menu is Fried Yellow Noodle. It comes in a big portion. I could barely finish it.
I drive back to the resort after dinner and I guess it is a good idea to have some beer before going to bed.
The second day has ended and tomorrow will be my third day here. The third day is started with some breakfast at the resort.
Today's main program is to go for the sunset apart from chilling at the pool.
This is the pool in the resort.
I have early dinner at Pak Nam Seafood Restaurant before going to Karon View Point or known as Three Bay Viewpoint and Phromthep Cape.
These are what I have ordered. The famous local menu, Dip with Dried Shrimp Phuket Style is the first dish.
Hot and Sour Curry with Shrimps and Acacia Omelette is the second one.
Fried Rice with Crab Meat is the third.
The last dish is this Fried Prawn with Tamarind Sauce which is delicious. It is perfectly sweet and sour.
I drive to Three Bay Viewpoint firstly after the dinner.
Then I am here at Phromthep Cape for the sunset.
The sun is saying goodbye to today.
There is a couple doing a pre-wedding photo shoot here during this time as well. This is so sweet.
My third day has ended. Tomorrow will be my last day here and my program is to do nothing but go to temple before going back to Bangkok.
I just checked out from the resort and I am heading to Wat Chaitharam (Wat Chalong).
After that, I drive up to the top of Khao Nak-Kerd to pay homage to Phra Phutthamingmongkol Eaknakakeeree (Phra Yai), the principal Buddha image of Phuket.
All of my travel programs of this trip have been successfully completed. Then I drive back to the airport to return the car before flying back to Bangkok. This is where my trip is ended. Well, if there are any mistakes in my travel review, I would like to take this opportunity to apologize.
