In September last year I had a 2 week opportunity to go on holidays and having never been before (even though I had been selling it for 7 years) I chose to travel to Phuket – Easily accessible, we flew Thai Airways International via Bangkok and spent 10 days at the Centara Grand Beach Resort which was great. Set right on Karon Beach with its own private beach, 2 minutes from Karon town and 10 minutes from Patong in a tuk tuk it was the perfect location.
Our days were spent exploring Phuket itself with day trips out to James Bond Island & Phi Phi Island, canoeing and snorkelling in these areas which was stunning as well as elephant trekking through the mountains. We also explored Patong, with the countless shops and markets as well as the restaurants and not to mention crazy night life! One of the highlights of the trip was having dinner on Surin Beach, such a quiet and gorgeous area and the sunset was absolutely breath taking!!
In between exploring we spent countless hours by the pool and beach, sipping on cocktails and indulging in massages and beauty treatments. It was the perfect escape for some R and R with still plenty to do so you will never be bored!
