Some observations from travels

Phuket on my mind

This was our second time to visit Phuket.  Previously we stayed at Hat Kata on the South Western side of the island.  This time we stayed at Hat Patong on the Western side.  Our hotel was old and seemed like it had seen better days.  Excellent location, though, right across from the beach and perfect view of the sunset.  But I would have to say Kata is still top on my list of the Phuket beaches.  Patong is much too crowded and messy compared to Kata.

Patong Beach

These colourful shrines are everywhere and they present with so much detail in them.

And then we chanced upon this Wishu Center which seemed deserted and neglected, but still showed its intricate details.

And some other interesting sights around the beach area.

As another day ends you’ll realise that the maddening crowd that you bumped into whilst walking around were probably here for the same reason…Phuket has its own appeal.  The Thai people are warm and friendly, the food is great and then you are shown some of nature’s best.

And it’s images such as these that stays on my mind about Phuket.

  1. The beaches are beautiful, I’ve never been but have always wanted to visit. It looks similar to Boracay, Philippines.

    • I’m originally from Cebu! and, if I must say so myself, Philippines still has the best white sand beaches!
