A piece of Phuket

After my trip to Thailand, I can truly declare that my favourite holiday destination is Phuket. From beaches to temples to beautiful sunsets this island never runs short. It's easy to miss out when there's a hundred things to do so here is my top 4 places to help you out ;) 

1. Big Buddha 
The 45m high, white marble Buddha was built in 2004 and not only offers a great religion lesson but also breathtaking views of the island. Because the Big Buddha is still under construction you can purchase a tile and write your name on it and it will be placed inside the Buddha forever. If you drive down the road from the Buddha you might happen to see one of the many elephants kept in people's gardens that you rent out to go for an elephant trek into the forest.

2. Karon Viewpoint 
A wonderful spot to watch the sunset and it offers great views of 3 beaches, Kata Noi, Kata Bay and Karon Beach which you can read all about on my Phuket Beaches post. 

3. Chalong Temple
This beautiful temple has so much to offer! The beautiful gardens are definitely a must see and the market outside the temple is a great place to enjoy some traditional Thai cuisine. You should also make sure to get a few bargains while you're at it ;)

4. Phuket Old Town
Saving the best for last. Walk the streets of the Old Town of Phuket and experience the street murals and colourfully painted second stories. The atmosphere here is unforgettable. My favourite two shops in Phuket Town must be UnĂ£u Bulan. The blue and white themed clothing shop is a must visit for all your tie die and beautiful accessory needs. And Thaivetro's Ice Cream Parlour is by far some of the best ice-cream I have ever had. I really enjoyed their range of Rose, Charcoal or Coconut waffle cones.

I really hope these 4 make it onto your must sees for Phuket. P.S you should try some of that rolled ice cream too.
