There are so many restaurants around the world which offers Thai food to their customers, but why miss a chance to try the Thai food cooked by the people of Thailand, I’m pretty sure that this is the only place with authentic Thai cuisine. Pad Thai is suggested as the best dish by many tourists who visited Phuket. Thai food is not much expensive, and they are quite tasty too.

In order to visit these temples, you should follow a certain set of rules for the respect of the religion, culture, and rituals of the people of Thailand, don’t wear shoes in Temples, women must cover your shoulders and knees and don’t touch the statues or any other Buddhist relics. Temples are a quiet and peaceful place to spend the afternoon with a relaxing visit.
The night markets in Phuket are full of fun, light, and excitement. You should go out into the market and bargain to get the famous beautiful stuff for your friends and family. The reason behind suggesting these markets at night is as the day is a bit hot and humid for you to enjoy the attractions in the market.
