Coronavirus pandemic had put the travel and tourism sector to a standstill, which is now set to reopen for vaccinated tourists. Many places are reopening from July 2021 and one among them is the Phuket province which is situated in southern Thailand. It is one of the largest islands of Thailand and nearby the Andaman sea.
Phuket is hugely influenced by Chinese culture, with many temples and restaurants located in the city have a Chinese impact. You won’t believe it but every year there is a Chinese vegetarian festival held in Phuket and the island really has enough Chinese population living there.
As the island is quite big, you will also get to explore different community’ festivals and traditions from all over the globe in Phuket. You would go crazy spending your time on the gorgeous beaches of Phuket such as Rawai, Patong, Kamala, Kata Yai, Kata Noi, Mai Khao, and Karon. If you want to take the best photographs of sunsets then the Laem Phromthep picture is one of the best sunsets in Thailand.
The Goom Restaurant has just the amazing classical architecture that you can witness and adore its beauty. Apart from the beaches and fine restaurants, you can also check out the beauty of nature with glittering seas, palm trees, and white sands. No wonder the lively towns are an added advantage to explore the fantastic attractions of the biggest island of Thailand.
There is also wonderful museums, absolutely marvelous nightlife, and exotic shows to enjoy your time in Phuket. If you are someone who is spiritual by nature, then you can witness the beautiful Big Buddha statue which is visible from most of the south of Phuket. The Big Buddha is located at the Nakkerd Hills and is 45 meters i.e. 148 feet tall. It is said to be constructed at a cost of 30 million baht. The official name of the place is Phra Phutta Ming Mongkol Eknakiri, shortened to Ming Mongkol Buddha and while you visit the place you can view amazing spots from the up.
