So many of you have asked for my Thailand recommendations as we always have such a special time! Dean and I have been going to Thailand almost every year since we met and it’s such a special place for us. It holds so many beautiful memories. We even got married there!
We just love it – the people, the food, the culture and the energy of the place are contagious. A trip to Thailand is a real vacation! We stay in Phuket and it is by far our favorite place on earth.
Here are my tips on where to stay, what to do and (of course) where to eat.
Where to sleep
We always go to Phuket.
Le Meridien – Truly the most beautiful beach we have ever been to. We’ve lived in the same place for almost a decade. It’s low key/not luxurious and the rooms are dated (see through). However, it really is the best and most relaxing place.
Like I said we really only go to the beach where you can usually relax and enjoy us from 9am to 9pm – no lie! The staff, food, location and energy are spot on.
AMANPURI or the Surin – If you want luxury, these are the places.
where should we eat
Fancy: Baan Rim Pa – This is one such facility. Go here for Thai food with a view, very close to Patong.
Authentic: Number 6 – Low key, authentic hole in the wall (street food vibe!) – and simply the best food.
Yummy: Buabok – Incredible Thai restaurant at Aman Hotel – very upscale.
What to do
Fang Beach Club Visit here for a fun afternoon. I definitely recommend a visit to this stunning and lively beach club. It’s fun to enjoy a cocktail, music and dancing.
Patong Markets by Night – Happy hiking around, a massage and street food experience.
Karon Beach + Surin Beach – These are the most beautiful beaches for swimming.
