It’s been a year since I wrote something personal-ish, glad I have the time to sit down and start writing again.
A week ago, we (Dash & I) went to Phuket, Thailand for a short break. It was our first ever trip to Thailand. As you all know, we have tons of beautiful beaches in the Philippines so I wasn’t expecting so much on this trip. We took a morning flight from Singapore via Jetstar. We were so giddy and excited cause the last time we traveled together via plane was back in 2014. After the 2 hour flight from Singapore, we finally reached our destination – Phuket.
Here are some of the photos I took from our trip. We stayed at Moevenpick Resort & Spa Karon – which is an hour and a half drive from Phuket International Airport (HKT).
On our first day, we watched the sunset and enjoyed the golden sand of Karon Beach.
I personally loved the color of the sunset – it looks like rose quartz with a touch of serenity and a bit of orange, a sunset which doesn’t feel sad at all.
As our trip is something that’s free and easy, we didn’t have any itinerary to follow. We literally took our time.
On our second day. We had a decent breakfast buffet at the hotel, went back to our room, took a nap and before noontime, we found ourselves getting ready to go to Patong Beach. After our simple yet delicious lunch by the street – we couldn’t wait any longer to lounge by the beach.
We rented umbrella seats near the shore and started people watching, taking photos, drinking our fave watermelon shake and sharing good conversations.
We ended our second day watching the sunset at Patong Beach, which has a different vibe from Karon Beach. After the sunset, we rode a Tuk Tuk back to Karon, and had a nice dinner outside the hotel.
Overall, this short trip is one of my favorites. The sea serves as my therapy and it gave me a time to breath and just take it all in.
I can’t wait to go on a trip again.
