Telugu Travel Vlog 1 : Phuket, Thailand (Temple, Phuket City Viewpoint, Phuket Weekend Night Market)
Phuket is an island province of Thailand. Its situated in the south part of Thailand. Phuket has few of the most popular beaches of Thailand situated along the clear waters of the western shore.
The Island has a lot of high-end seaside resorts, spas and restaurants.
The best way to get around and explore this town is to hire a motorcycle or scooter and cruise around. And that’s what I did. I hired a scooter and decided to cruise around the town, taking whichever road I feel like. I had no agenda. I just went on roaming around.
First I stumbled upon a Temple which looked really beautiful from distance. Decided to take my first stop here. I checked out the temple and its architecture and saw how people paid their homage to the God. It wasn’t different from how Hindus pray at the temple back in India.
The differences I saw were that, 1) People enter into the temple with their shoes on. 2) People offer soft drinks like Coco Cola and Fanta to the God (Bet even the God gets thirsty in this heat)
Next I went onto to cruise around the main Phuket Town. I saw some narrow road heading to something. The road was really nice and cool with lots of trees on both sides. It was an amazing ride with cool air hitting my face. At the end of the road I reached my 2nd destination – Phuket City Viewpoint.
The Phuket City Viewpoint has an awesome view of the whole town(or city – how they like to call it). I could also see the waterfront from the viewpoint. I realized that Phuket is such a flat town with hardly any high rise buildings.
Also I got to sit on a bench with a view of the whole town and to think about life and contemplate (I do that too much).
Next I got to hear about the weekend night market from a local and I decided to head there as my last stop for the day.
The Phuket Weekend Night Market is a busy busy place where you would definitely, definitely be lost. Its huge with a range of items on sale and that too at affordable rates(IF and only IF you are good at bargaining). The food section isn’t the biggest, but it definitely is the busiest at all times. The range of food items is just crazy. But its useless for the vegetarians. If you are lucky and determined then you may stumble upon a few stalls selling 1 or 2 vegetarians items. Else fruit is always an option.
So after visiting the Night Market, I was totally drenched in sweat and decided to end my exploration of the city for the day.
All in all it was a fun filled day of exploration of Phuket, Thailand.
