Exploring Phuket: A Day Full of Adventures
My day in Phuket began with a delicious meal of unique Pineapple Rice at a local restaurant. Since I had no fixed plans, I decided to use Google Maps to find interesting locations to explore.
To get around, I recommend using Bike Taxis as it's the best way to navigate the city. Although renting a bike is also an option, be careful of the notorious police scam.
I spent some time walking around The Old Town, discovering fascinating stories and hidden angles. The Old Town is full of captivating sights and experiences.
My first stop was Ao Yon Beach, which was surprisingly empty except for a local family collecting shells for jewellery. This beautiful beach is a shell cemetery, and it was so remote that I had to ask my Bike Taxi to wait for me as there were no other transportation options.
Next, I visited Cape Phrom Thep, a stunning mount that offers breathtaking views of beaches and islands. This spot is so hidden that you won't find much information about it online, so I recommend dropping a random pin and discovering it for yourself.
I also visited Karon Beach, which was quite deserted due to the off-season. Only Patong Beach was active, and all the shops and surroundings of Karon Beach were closed.
While I did make it to the famous Freedom Beach entry point, I decided to skip it as I didn't feel comfortable with the atmosphere there.
On my way back, I discovered a fantastic viewpoint of Patong Beach, and finally, I ended my day by exploring the infamous Bangla Road after dark. Although there aren't many photos of this notorious street, I captured several photos and will be sharing them soon.
