Greetings from our happy feet at Phuket. I'm terribly missing the sunny weather, the beach, and of course the ocean. It always makes me feel so calm whenever I'm at the beach.
Thanks to Hotel IKON Phuket, we have a wonderful staycation over the weekend. We had an ocean premier view room on the highest level of the hotel overlooking ocean from distance. The hotel is well decorated in chic modern design. I personally love the pool area where we manage to chill and have some dipping. Ikon is located in a quiet neighbourhood and it would take about 10 to 15 mins walking to Karon beach.
Thanks to lovely Mona, I have visited different places in Phuket that has changed my perspective about this little island.
#1 Yanui Beach
Instead of exploring Karon or Patong beach, we went Yanui Beach which is about 20 mins drive from our hotel. The beach is less crowded and you can enjoy sun tanning and just chill by the beach.
We headed to Phuket Old Town for lunch and dessert after toasting ourselves for hours.
#2 One Chun Restaurant
One of the best that serves the best southern thai food. I love love the braised pork and the spicy prawn salad with raw vegetables.
#3 Torry's Ice Cream Boutique
The desserts here are all homemade and the owner also localize and create interesting menu like mango sorbet ice cream with sticky rice and coconut ice cream with red bean. A place that is super Instagram worthy.
Day 1 in Phuket well spent and I will continue to share with you more about Phuket in my next post.
Now off to airport to catch Coldplay concert tomorrow!
