coming to Phuket I really didn’t have a plan.
I’ve just been kind of like spending time relaxing and not really going out that much and sightseeing and that’s because the days before that and I know the dates after Phuket will be all about trying to see as much as i can see and photographin, film things and there’s a point where travel blogging becomes work.
Sometimes just to take a vacation I just need to go to someplace else that’s foreign just so that i can rest.
With Phuket, I’ve just kind of been sitting back and I’ve been doing really nothing.
And I don’t regret it at all.
So there we go.
I don’t regret it.
Whether or not i see everything this island has to offer, I think that a few things I see would still be enough to me.
Here I am at a sauna.
This is the sauna.
You can smell the turmeric.
You hang out there for a while, you sweat it out and then come to these barrels right here and you pour water over yourself to kind of like cool yourself down.
You can go in and out back and forth as many times as you want.
It’s kind of like a way to refresh yourself.
You know for 70 baht, that’s not a bad thing.
So now i’m going to go ahead and take a massage.
A Thai massage right here will be 250 baht.
So that’s not a bad deal at all.
After a long day of traveling it’s definitely the way to go.
We’re at Nai Harn beach in Phuket and this is a gorgeous Beach mixed with expats or foreigners and locals and this is actually the first beach that I’ve seen here in phuket or maybe even in Thailand where r i noticed locals hanging out also.
That’s a big thing.
Maybe there’s a refreshment stand.
I need to refresh my snacks.
What do you think? Is it my look? Massages are 300 baht.
In Phuket massages are just a little more expensive than bangkok.
Just a little bit more.
it’s a Buddha in the window The Thai have this ritual where when they’re praying that they take one of these gold leaves.
After their prayer they will place it on the statute.
The giant statue.
too A famous monk that was in this temple.
Another thing you’ll find very common with Thai culture is they’ll wrap these trees the base of the trees and sometimes I put like little statues or objects symbols.
You could pretty much go treasure hunting in these trees.
So here we are at Phuket Vegetarian Festival.
Nine days of just festival rituals and parades, vegetarian food.
And at the end, of this entire festival and culminates into one big parade and kind of like a celebration.
The vegetarian festival has to be one of the largest food festivals in all of Thailand.
And oh my God, all this vegetarian food make is making my mouth water.
Now Thailand has a lot of night market and Thai love to shop.
They also love to eat.
Currently we’re at Karon Beach outside of Wat Suwan Khiri Khet (Karon Temple Market).
Inside the wat area there is a huge night market a lot of food, a lot of shopping, clothes, souvenirs.
All that driving around today got me really hungry.
Deep-fried bugs anyone? i just ordered some spring rolls for 10 baht each.
You can pick it out.
It’s pretty basic, deep-fried and there’s a lot of fried food in Thailand, which makes it so delicious and yet sometimes so unhealthy for you.
Or at least for your diet.
Where else can you get a plate of Jumbo Prawns or even jumbo baby crabs for 50 baht.
This is a deep fried soft-shell crab.
this is the prawn.
50 baht for a whole little container of this, like three or four of them.
