Phuket is an amazing place to explore nature, check scenic ocean and sandy beaches at the same time to simply unwind and relax. Phuket is a paradise where parties and food are everywhere. It was a fun adventure.

We saw how religious the place because they built a big statue of their God outside the temple and noticed how local people gave praises. Aside from Phuket attractive beaches, the country is known for many elephants and some were put in a sanctuary. Phuket also has a lot of food to offer, local or international.
