Phuket, Thailand in Pictures!

July of 2014, is when we decided to take a short break from our respective work and take a trip to the closest international beach destination from India, one that is visually beautiful, clean, kids friendly and good for shopping;-)…between Ko Samui, Krabi & Phuket, we decided to head to Phuket..not sure why, I was leaning more towards Ko Samui though, but so glad we Phuket! 2 days in Bangkok and 5 days in Phuket was what our itinerary broadly looked like. Two days in Bangkok cuz that’s how many days it takes me to shop! Here’s the thing about Thailand, apart from being the land of Buddha and awesomely delicious finger licking to-die-for Thai food, it is also the Best-cheap-shopping-I-have-ever-done land! It hosts a good mix of high-end designer malls and flea markets. On my list were Asiatique mall & Chatuchak market (world’s biggest export/flea market). After spending my entire month’s salary in these two markets, we headed to Phuket. We were booked in J.W. Marriott. Paradise in Paradise! If you are planning a trip to Phuket with kids, look nowhere, this is the place hands down!
