3 Days Itinerary : Phuket Thailand

It was 2 weeks before my flight going to Vietnam when I decided to look for an airfare going elsewhere ~ a place where I can relax, enjoy, and think less of those tons of work load coming up everyday. Big thanks to Tiger Airways for the 0 fare sale! Out of stress, I booked an air ticket going to Phuket, Thailand ~ alone as usual. It was the second time that I traveled alone, so it was more of like less fears, and less worries. Less, meaning, not as much as what I’ve felt during my Vietnam trip.

First day : Island Safari Tour

It was great and definitely unforgettable. Elephant ride, ox (which when I was young was introduced to me as a cow) ride, buffalo (carabao) ride, and canoeing were included in the tour package. Canoeing was great, except that for the reason I also cannot explain, I brought my camera with me. Throughout that entire canoeing experience, I was fixated on how I'd keep my camera dry. It was really exciting though it made my arms sore. I also tried the fish spa! Just felt bad that I didn't have much photos while doing those things and that's one of the cons of traveling alone.

Went back to the hotel and rest.

Second day : Phi Phi Island Tour / Phuket Funtasea

Phi Phi Island tour was amazing. I've tried snorkeling, island hopping, swimming, and roaming around the island. It was indeed a very nice trip, not to mention the superb food and the great tour guide as well!

Phuket Funtasea is the best. At first I thought it was boring. When the show started, it wowed all the audience! Cameras weren't allowed inside the auditorium so I wasn't able to take photos of the performances. But it was really great! I swear!

Third day : City Tour

I went temple hopping on the thrid day ~ Chalong Temple. Buddha everywhere, which was expected. I also squeezed in souvenir shopping in between.

Beach hopping! Our first stop was Rawai beach. There were no tourists around the area, only 3 people who were fishing. I was a little disappointed, I thought we'd only just be hopping around those kinds of beaches. The second stop was Kota Beach. It was far better than Rawai beach. It was crowded and there were foreigners everywhere. Karon Beach was the third stop. The beach is as much as beautiful as Kota beach, except that there were fewer tourists there. The fourth and last stop was at Patong Peach. It is the liveliest and the busiest of all ~ very crowded indeed. Perfect place for party people. There you can find food stalls, restaurants, money changers and souvenir shops too.

I then had lunch at Phuket Bay Restaurant.

After lunch, I went back to my hotel, packed my things up, and checked out. I left my things in the guest house lobby and had a relaxing Thai massage. Then headed off to the airport to catch my flight going back to SG.

This is what I love about traveling alone ~ you can meet new friends, do whatever you want, eat whatever you want, go wherever you want, and spoil yourself whenever you want. ~

Special thanks to V-Y Polendey for the very helpful information and tips given. ♥ And I also recommend Lub sbuy Guest House for all of you who's planning to visit Phuket, Thailand. Indeed a nice place to stay at, plus very accommodating receptionists. Did I mention it's affordable too?

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain
