This post comes to you from Phuket! It was a last minute trip, but it’s not far. Phuket is an hour’s flight from Penang.
I gatecrashed my brother’s surfing holiday as I do once in a while. No, I can’t really surf, I just pretend to. I also don’t have my own board, the others do. I rented the pink one, obviously. Don’t judge me ;p
Apart from the beach and surfing, Phuket town is really interesting. It has strong historical ties with my home town of Penang. The architecture and the Chinese descendants have strong ties with each other through trade and marriage. The building below is a typical shophouse in Phuket town, which could be mistaken for Georgetown, Penang.
