Amazing Thailand!! Phuket

PHUKET, the largest island of Thailand is one of the southern provinces of Thailand.

The island is about the size of Singapore, running from 48 kilometers (34 miles) north to south and 21 kilometers (16 miles) east to west, situated off the west coast of Thailand in the Andaman Sea.

Each time when I am flying to Phuket, it reminds me of my childhood. Yes, been there while I was 9 years old? Anyway, we used to travel very often to Had Yai & Southern Thai very often at that time, tagging along with dad while he traveled up North for business.

My recent visits are short, am planning to travel to Phuket again in 2011, a longer stay perhaps.

And of course, water activities!!- Have not been to any as yet!
Funny, ain't it? I was there twice in 2009 for business trip and once, in 2010 for holiday!

Popular water sports

Wind surfing
Scuba diving

A photo to share:


One of the reason I like Thailand!! It's always easy to travel around with Tuks -tuks, Songtaews & taxis.

I shall see you again PHUKET!!
