Phuket, Thailand Highlights + Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort Review

Coral Beach, Phuket, Thailand
Last year, I had the chance to visit Phuket for the first time as a side trip from Bangkok and Yangon (Myanmar, also my first time.) Like most of Thailand, there were lots of tourists but the beaches with white sand and clear, aquamarine waters were irrefutably some of the best in the world, rivaling the likes of Boracay (Philippines), Maldives, Palau, etc. The night life is also reminiscent of that of Boracay, although it isn’t necessarily located beachfront.

Because of limited tables, here’s what we brought back to our resort: pad thai (chicken and seafood) with several additional scoops of peanuts for me, Nutella crepe, mango with sticky rice and tempura shrimp (the odd one out, but we’re located by the sea after all.)
And speaking of hotels/resorts, I got a good deal from the Wyndham Sea Pearl Resort.
Like most hotels here, they provided free airport transfers and a van shuttle going to downtown.

The room was luxurious and the king bed was big enough for three people 😉
And it came with a jacuzzi in the balcony, which was on the whole time, but we never got to use it. It was overlooking…
…One of the several infinity pools that had a relaxing view of the mountains:
The restaurant for breakfast found above the reception was bright and airy:
And breakfast came with a soothing view like this:
