Well, I am sure many of you are thinking about the next holiday — there are several coming very soon:
New Year’s, Chinese (Lunar) New Year, Valentine’s Day…wedding anniversaries (there must be some between now and March 🙂 for some of you)… Any of those holidays warrants a trip to a beautiful place like Phuket. My family (my wife, daughter, and I) spent a wonderful week there during the last Chinese New Year. It took me a while to write about it because we had many other things to write about plus Phuket is tough to write about — you simply have to go there to truly appreciate it.
Nevertheless, I decided to write a few lines and give you some ideas as to where to go and what makes sense to do:
Places to stay — we recommend the Holiday Inn Busakorn Wing at Patong Beach
Beaches to go to: Patong Beach, Nai Harn Beach — probably the most beautiful beach in Phuket
Places to eat: sounds strange but the Thai restaurant at the Holiday Inn in the Busakorn Wing is excellent!!! Try it – you will enjoy it.
Things to do: (1) Diving/snorkeling at Nai Harn Beach, rent a speed boat for the day and go to James Bond rock and then to other uninhabitted islands with pristine beached.
