An excursion away from the frenetic and relentless pace of the city can be extremely liberating. Take that from a faithful city dweller who’s used to confined and artificially landscaped spaces. Being transported to Phuket’s open horizons and wide expanse of sea can be a hypnotic experience.
Winding coastal roads curling along the west coast of the island lead us through a succession of beaches and hilly terrains. In some of the more secluded beaches you’ll find little pockets of paradise with uninterrupted views of clear skies and azure waters. A long stretch of smooth white sand dotted by palm trees coax you to spend a few hours of relaxation under the shade, where the only audible sounds are those of the waves rolling onto the beach.
