What are the things to buy in Phuket? Let me share my hits and misses after spending 6 relaxing days in Phuket. You absolutely have to buy Rose Apples in Thailand. This country produces really sweet ones! In Phuket, you can find Rose Apples being sold in supermarkets or night markets. It turned out to be a great buy as elsewhere were selling at higher prices. Other fruits to consider include Jackfruit, dragon fruit, pineapple and papaya. They were all good and cheap. If you love durian, you will know good durian should taste bittersweet. Get those when you visit Malaysia.
Thailand durian tends to be just sweet and hence less preferred. TIP : Most first-time visitors would want to do some island-hopping and snorkeling when in Phuket. In Singapore, each lippie would have cost twice the price. In this sunny island of Phuket where sunscreen probably sells like hotcakes, it was great to see them being sold at a good price. They were ificantly cheaper than those priced in Singapore and certainly worth lugging back. Need food to munch when you relax in your hotel? Or looking to buy food souvenirs for your colleagues and friends?
The best place to get them would be at supermarkets such as Big C or Tesco. Skip the supermarket in Central Festival Phuket as I recall them to be priced at a premium. Some of the recommended products are:. Get a free 6-Day Phuket Itinerary to give you ideas on what to see and do in Phuket - plus receive latest honest reviews in your inbox! Some of the dog treats sold here in Singapore or Malaysia are imported from Thailand. You can get them cheaper in Thai Supermarkets. My dog absolutely adores the treats from JerHigh. Many people would grab beach dresses from Phuket weekend markets.
You could too if you are not so particular about quality and do not mind seeing other tourists wearing the same de. Thai milk tea is known for its rich Ceylon flavour, creaminess and sweetness. If you have a sweet tooth, you would love it.
The best place to experience Thai Local food is to visit its night markets. There were so many food options and we were glad to have tried these great ones highlighted below:. It gives you one-click access to tips, logistics info and map locations. Of course, renting a car is cheaper and I highly recommend it. That probably saved us lots of money from taking taxi, hiring a driver or ing day tours. Transport Options : If you prefer not to drive, you can take the Phuket Airport Transfers to get to your hotel when you arrive.
Then hire a private car to get to the popular spots in Phuket. You can totally skip this premium outlet. We saw too many vacant shops. I could easily get cheaper stuff in a normal retail store in Singapore. Dogs, Cats, rabbits and even squirrels and exotic reptiles were being sold here. If you are thinking of buying them, do note the challenges in importing these animals into your country and make sure you are not against immigration laws.
So when I say a food is bad, it must be really bad! Here were some of our food misses:. I should have trusted my instinct. Look at this Lemongrass tea from Thailand. I bought a pair of pretty sandals at a good price Baht It was only when I started wearing it in Singapore that I realized how poor the quality was. First of all, it was heavy.
Secondly, my toes started to hurt within less than 10 minutes of walk. Some parts were sticking out and causing abrasion to the skin. In fact, we found most of them being more expensive. I wonder how these brands were appealing to the locals. If you like to hear about the fun things I do as a budget-savvy free and easy traveler?
