Phuket is one of Southern Thailand‘s most touristic destinations, primarily known for its crowded beaches and wild parties. Not exactly on top of my list as a travel destination I confess (as you know I’m more into solitude, beautiful natural landscapes and powerful sacred sites). I’d set up a temporary camp base in town without much hope that I’d fall in love. The decision was solely logistical. All I was in for was easy access to international flights (for a quick exit to my next Southeast Asia destination), a good and reliable internet connection (to catch up on work and the usual business stuff) and produce aplenty (a raw vegan girl necessity). Well, I got all of these and more (seriously, take a look at these smiles!).
After settling down in Old Phuket Town, I headed without delay to the bustling local produce market for a little food gazing and a lot of fruit hoarding… And to my surprise was taken in by the town’s unexpected old-world charm and the warmth of its people.

Strawberries are my favorite! I remember you created a sherbet made of strawberries. It automatically became one of my families fave desserts!
The place looks clean and tourist-friendly. Kudos to their local government.
Such beautiful smiles!
Anywhere you look, there is a touch of artistry. Even the birdcages are so nicely created!
Should we be expecting another recipe anytime soon? Yay!
What do you call the red stuff that looks like a flower? I was thinking dragon fruit at first, but it looks way smaller.
