Last August 7-9, 2015, I visited Phuket just in time for the national day holiday in Singapore.
The moment I land in Phuket, there was heavy rain so I immediately grab a taxi so that I could already get to Swissotel, the hotel where I stayed.
Since it was raining, I just opted to rest in the hotel and reserve my energy for next day's activities.
Upon waking up, I prepared myself for a short walk to the beach. Just outside the hotel, I was amazed by this altar which is also a common sight in Bali.
Walking farther, I saw these two ducks next to a French spa.
Then I started to walk towards the beach. I passed by this forested area.
With no one to ask, I just explored the area until I reached the beachfront and took these photos.
It was too windy that time for there was typhoon in Taiwan. Even the sea was rough. It just reminded me of the tsunami, that when I walked further down, I found the memorial to the victims.
On walking farther, I chanced upon an elegant Buddhist temple showcasing the statues of Buddha in perfect majesty.
Walking again, I saw this boat, a kind of Thai gondola, in the river.
The streets of Phuket are pretty much similar to that in the Philippines as below.
