As most of you probably saw on my Instagram, I recently traveled to Thailand. In one word the country was BREATH-TAKING!
The trip was so inspiring, and I didn’t want it to end… I’m still reflecting over the trip as I have had such a fun time of understanding the beauty of a culture and breathtaking perception on people and Islands.
An overview of Phuket from the air. Just how beautiful it looks from above. I had such a fun time going through my photos from the trip. I realized, this trip was unforgettable. I had been planing on my trip for months and, …… before I knew it, I was packed and all set to go!
Today I’m sharing some of my favorite Thailand memories with all of you, in hopes that it makes you feel like you were traveling right along with me. Thailand is a Southeast Asian country. It’s known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha.
When travelers to Thailand talk about sea, sun and sand, Phuket is often the first place that comes to mind. But, let’s have a look at Phuket Town first.
Phuket Town is at first sight is an unappealing rag-tag collection of modern and semi-modern architecture, Sino-colonial houses and shops and shopping centres. But in its back roads (Thalang, Dibuk, Krabi) you’ll find an eclectic bunch of refurbished restaurants, bars and Chinese houses dating back to Phuket’s tin-mining ‘golden age’ that are well worth exploring and ‘discovering’. I loved it!
I stayed in Phuket Airport Hotel that was nearby Phuket Airport on the first day of arrival as I wanted to explore the small town before leaving for my island tour. The place is a very comfortable, it is rated as a 3-star hotel (but for me it’s 5 star!) and it’s one of the closest hotels near Phuket Airport. Though close to the airport, Phuket Airport Hotel gives you a peaceful haven-like feeling to rest your mind & feet. The hotel is perfect for transit passengers, layovers or a short stay in Phuket. The hotel people are friendly! They are helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with.
You will be welcomed by a stone-made elephant statue (which is adorable) at the entrance of the hotel.
This is the swimming pool area, there’s benches around the pool so you may sit and relax or even read a book. The place is created in such a way that as you enter from the entrance the pool is directly in the middle and there is room surrounding it. I was lucky enough to have my room right in front of the pool side,…
How often do you wake up to a scenery as such ….
ALSO the hotel provides complimentary of 24 hours free fresh bean coffee, tea and fruit juices refreshment!
A big breakfast well served!
The folks who works there do welcome you with open arms and the friendliest personal service, trust me this I speak based on experience, if there are anyone one of you who is planning a travel to Phuket, this place is affordable and filled with friendly people around you – Not to mentioned relaxing as well!
I want to share with you a traditional Thai pancake called Roti (row-tee). It really reminds me more of a crepe though. The finished Roti is topped with sugar or sweet condensed milk (in my case I requested for chocolate and peanut) which is cut into bite-sized pieces. As you can see, the paper is grease-soaked. It is definitely not a healthy snack. But then again, it’s dessert and a great occasional treat.
In short, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. After all this and more, the best thing about this hotel trip was learning how kind and helpful the Thai people are. They smile at you, they bow down doing Namastey (saa-waa-dee-ka meaning hello) and they go out of their way to help tourists. This is something that I loved the most.
Thank you for the love, Phuket Airport hotel. This hotel can be found in booking.com. Next, let’s unravel the Islands of Thailand.
