My month in Phuket was like it was planned to be: calm, relaxing and comfortable. I done some work, take my time to care about myself and explored some major sites. I haven’t got big plans for this month, it was more about staying right here and right now.
I have changed my opinion to better about Phuket. Before coming, i took it as another very average beach island as it is famous mostly for drinking and overpriced Patong area (please, avoid). But it happened to be much better if you are willing to search for something else: Phuket town is cool hip place, viewpoints are georgeous, food is really good and beaches were better than i expected! Visiting some islands like Phi Phi is definitely a highlight. I love that Phuket itself got something for everyone, every budget or experience and you can find here whatever suits you better. The only downside was the transportation, i definitely will do and see more if it wouldn’t be such a problem to get around without motorbike.
Major practical numbers:
29 days in Phuket
2 places and 1 side trip
0 UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Average expenses 65$/day for 2 people without plane tickets and resort stay
