Content: Arrive in Phuket around 10am, ready to start your week of paradise! We had to get a test at the airport before we could leave, as well as having all of our documents checked. (Info subject to change so please check requirements for the time you are planning to visit!) Once we’d gone through all the checks and had our test done, our hotel transfer was waiting for us. It takes around 45 minutes to drive from the airport to Pa Tong, once we’d arrived we had to wait a few hours for our test to come back negative so we could leave the hotel.

Content: Next we went to Big Buddha! We rented a scooter from the lady across the road from the hotel for 250thb a day (scooters are a little more expensive in Phuket so bare this in mind) The drive there is pretty nice in itself, it takes around 30-40 minutes from Pa Tong. Once we arrived we had to sign in & sanitise - admission was free! We were lucky enough to almost have the place to ourselves, which made for some great pictures with Big Buddha. This place is definitely worth coming to while you’re in Phuket, it also has incredible 360 views! 😍

Content: After an amazing day of exploring, we headed back to Pa Tong and got ready for dinner. We headed out to a cute restaurant just up the road from us and were greeted by the kindest hosts. The restaurant had seating inside little beach huts and would be a great spot for sunset dining! The food here was one of our favourites in Phuket (so much so we came back again later in the week!)

Location: Freedom Beach, Phuket

Day 4 - 30 Aug 2021

Content: After the usual breakfast at the hotel, we left for the beach! We’d heard Freedom beach was one of the nicest nearby and it really was amazing! We took the ‘free’ route and trekked through a 20 minute jungle to get to the beach (as advised by some locals), you do need to be prepared for a sweaty hike for this one so if you’d rather, you can pay 200thb entry pp at the entrance and take the steps instead Once we’d arrived at the beach, the locals who had food and drink huts set us up with a mat to lay on, umbrellas, back tests and a table. They were so welcoming and we really liked it here so we spend most of the day relaxing, drinking coconuts, eating corn and finishing off with a few beers. We virtually had the beach to ourselves which made for some great pics!

Paradise Beach

Content: This was our faaavourite beach in Phuket! (I’m sure you can see why!) We drove our scooters here from the hotel and arrived at the entrance where you pay 100thb pp and they take you the rest of the way in a little shuttle bus. Your 100thb entry free includes access to a sunbed and a drink at the bar. We set ourselves up on a double bed lounger and had our refreshing free drink. They also do food here which was great for lunch! There’s a main beach which is picturesque in itself but there’s also a small access way via some steps to get to a smaller, more secluded beach. The water here was so calm and crystal clear, we spent the whole day lounging on the beds, listening to music and sipping cocktails! A great day at the beach (and probably our favourite day of relaxing) 🌴☀️

Content: Our last full day in Phuket was a pretty chilled one, we stayed by the pool and planned for our next trip! We really wanted to go to James Bond Island during our visit but found it quite difficult with the covid situation and some trips not running. It looks incredible so if you’re able to go - definitely book the trip! We can’t wait to show you our next trip already 🥰
