Top 3 Things to Do in Phuket

I previously said Hawaii is my number one beach destination (read my hawaii post) but Phuket is also undeniably beautiful. Here are my top 3 things to do in Phuket:

1. Kata Beach

Although Patong beach is the most famous beach in Phuket, I really enjoyed staying at Kata beach as it was secluded and quieter. The soft white sand and the crystal clear blue water makes this beach one of the best beaches in Phuket. If you want to sit back and relax, this is the perfect beach for you.

2. Get Thai Massage

When I was vacationing in Thailand, I literally got one Thai massage per day. I always went to very nice spa to get my massage and I only paid about $15 – $20 per hour. If you have not experienced Thai massage, it is very different from Western massage that you are normally used to. You do not get undressed and there is no oil involved in this massage. Rather, it is highly physical therapy which can sometimes be painful. However, it definitely relives your muscle tension and it will leave you feeling light and refreshed.

3. Eat as much Thai food as you can

Thai cuisine has been selected as one of the best cuisine in the world by CNN. The combination of variety of spices and the coconut milk makes complex yet delicious flavors. There are countless mouthwatering Thai dishes such as Pad Thai, Tom Yum Gung, Som Tam, and green curry. Moreover, it is very cheap in Thailand so please eat as much Thai food as you can when you are in Phuket.
