Phuket, Thailand | Day 03

Ready Set Go

I could not bear myself for not clearing all the travel posts. It just takes me a while to be motivated. Phuket Day 3 was city explore. Phuket is famous for their island, but there are some gems that should not miss out too.

First stop was Big Buddha, Chalong.

Known among Thais as the Phra Puttamingmongkol Akenakkiri Buddha in full, it is 25 meters across at the base. The whole body is layered with beautiful white Burmese marble that shines in the sun, making it a natural symbol of hope. The views, and the actual image itself are all breathtaking.

Close up to the image itself it is very peaceful and the only noises you will hear are the tinkling of small bells and the yellow Buddhist flags in the compound flapping in the wind plus soft background dharma music.

Not forget to mention that here offers the best 360-degree views of the island. It is also a good spot to catch the sunset and sunrise!

Just a quick stroll in Premium Outlet Phuket. Money and price aside, if you are looking for sports gear and wear it is a good choice there but that’s it!

Random lunch at Wine Connection, Central Festival Phuket. Surprisingly it was very good! Love their spaghetti and pizza!

Oh! As well as their dessert.

While today’s trip is about city exploration, Weekend Market here we go. It is not far from Central Festival, it is the best way to get closer to the locals, secondhand goods, souvenir like T-Shirts, pirated items, and a large amount of great local food to sample including fried insects.

There are hundreds upon hundreds of stalls and shops. You name it you will find it!

My favourite tangeline juice!

I would not want to miss another beautiful beach, Patong Beach before the sky gets really dark.

Settled down our dinner along the street and some local snacks with some beer in the restaurant on the way back to hotel.

Bumped into this Autobar and a bucket of Long Island to end our night yo!
