Incredible Asia: Phuket (2)

Our second day at Phuket included, among other things, a visit to the Chalong temple, a swim at the Nai Harn beach, and a taste of the nightlife in Patong. There were other excellent moments too, but I consider them too special to share.

The man on thet right was putting the fireworks inside this “structure”. The cracking sound of the fireworks was really loud!

This building looked like a museum.

There are many Buddha statues inside.

Another religous and touristic site at Phuket: the Big Buddha. It’s really very big.

Nightlife in Patong: a crazy and vibrant atmosphere that can’t be captured with a camera.

Local youih at a local gas station with traditional Thai music playing out loud. I wish photos could convey sounds and smells too. Two-wheel transport is super popular in Thailand.

So this is just a quick glimpse at Phuket, a touristic island with beautiful beaches, tasty food, and vibrant night life. Most of the emotions remain inside as always. This place in Thailand is definitely worth a visit!
