Want to get away but don’t have anyone to go with? Perhaps your holiday dates don’t match up with your friends or you want to go to different destinations, no matter the reason, that does not mean that your dream holiday is off the table! Don’t let anyone else stop you from your travelling dreams.
Some of the best bits about travelling is all the wonderful discoveries you make along the way. Whether it’s shopping at the authentic markets or walking the streets of the old town, you’re constantly immersing yourself in authentic Thai culture. Collecting little pieces of Phuket and gifts for your friends and family are what is going to help you remember your trip forever and let you bring your little slice of Phuket back home with you.
For any English speaker, learning Thai may seem very daunting and difficult. The prefixes are different, the writing is different, the pronunciation is different. They even have 5 meanings for the same word! So we are not surprised when Thai seems like a confusing language. However we love to urge people to speak the language where and whenever possible whilst here in Thailand. The local Thai people love seeing foreigners make an effort to immerse into their culture and become of them.
When it comes to shopping in Phuket, you won’t be short on choice! From high end shopping centres to authentic street stalls and everything in between. We know that for most holiday goers here in Phuket, they want to take back a little piece of Phuket home with them. So we’ve got the low down on all the perfect places to shop for your Phuket memorabilia.
We’ve all heard the word mindfulness and know that meditation is the latest buzz these days, but what does being mindful actually mean? Meditation isn’t just sitting in a dark room, crossing your legs, closing your eyes and humming for hours on end. Meditation is a form of mindfulness which helps us escape the present and enter a deeper mental state. It’s a state where we can block out background noise, turn down the chatter in our heads and just be still.
We all love the travelling lifestyle. Packing up, hopping on a plane, going into the unknown. Exploring, going on an adventure and expanding your reality. It’s fun and exciting for most of us, but it’s not always as glamorous as it seems. Travelling lots can take its toll, so we’ve put together out top 5 plane hacks which you can use for any flight to help ease the travelling process.
