Exploring Phuket’s Historical Old Town District

Phuket may be known for its beautiful sandy beaches and party scene, but if you’re into culture and heritage, then Phuket Old Town is a definite must visit. Comprising several roads including Dibuk (Thai for ‘tin’), Thalang and the narrow but extremely popular alleyway called Soi Romanee, the area is a haven of old shops and hipster cafes, selling everything from artisan ice cream and drinks … Continue reading Exploring Phuket’s Historical Old Town District

Exploring Karon, Phuket After Sundown

Some cultures might find it disrespectful to have a market selling food / knick knacks / random items at a holy site. Not in Phuket though! Held on Tuesdays and Fridays, the Karon Temple Night Market is located within Wat Suwan Khiri Khet at Karon, and is a great place to explore if you’re looking to immerse yourself in the local culture and nab yourself … Continue reading Exploring Karon, Phuket After Sundown

Review: Mor Mu Dong, Phuket – The Michelin Bib Restaurant In A Mangrove Swamp

When I went to Phuket recently, I wanted to look for off-the-beaten path experiences to write about, rather than the usual attractions. That was how I stumbled upon Mor Mu Dong, a hidden gem in the Chalong district that apparently has a Michelin Bib Gourmand (it’s kinda like a ‘budget’ Michelin star award). Because it’s far from commercial centres and rather difficult to find, not … Continue reading Review: Mor Mu Dong, Phuket – The Michelin Bib Restaurant In A Mangrove Swamp

Hotel Review: Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket, Thailand

Hey, guys! I recently had the pleasure of staying at Movenpick Resort and Spa Karon Beach, a leading luxury resort in Phuket, ie Thailand’s largest island.

Bangla Road, Phuket’s Red Light District

Sundown is when the party starts at Bangla Road, Patong.  Notorious as Phuket island’s red light district, the place comes alive each night with neon lights, loud music and sexy girls at every corner. This is where members of the oldest profession in the world openly ply their trade along the 400m long street, amidst a backdrop of sleazy strip bars and clubs. Although the arch … Continue reading Bangla Road, Phuket’s Red Light District

Bike Adventures in Patong, Phuket

I’ve never ridden on a motorbike.  Even though bikes are common in Malaysia,  mum has never allowed me to get on one (let alone ride one) because she says it’s dangerous. I think accidents happen no matter what vehicle you’re driving, so everyone just needs to be more careful on the road. Now, travelling around Phuket is convenient with taxis and tuktuks, but 200-300B per … Continue reading Bike Adventures in Patong, Phuket
