The traditional way of eating in Thailand is to add rice to your plate, then take just a small portion from each dish onto your plate - and just one dish at a time. It's not like we do when we eat - putting everything onto your plate at once. Usually the person closest to the dish will serve their fellow diners rather than handing the plates of food around the table.
Eating in Thailand is done somewhat slowly. It is to be savoured. Thais can take ages to eat a meal, stopping to talk for 15-20 minutes before trying the next dish of food. Thais eat with a spoon and fork or chopsticks (chopsticks are usually reserved for meals with noodles). You actually eat from the spoon and use the fork or chopsticks to push the food onto it.
For traditional Thai eating, a plate of fresh greens will be served with your meal. It will include things like young Cashew leaves, Cha Om leaves, raw Thai eggplant, long beans, cucumbers, Gotu Kola leaves etc. These accompaniments are for digestion and also for eating with chilli dishes to cool the palate. Meals are usually finished with fresh fruit.
Located on the south of Phuket island on the top of Nakkerd hill the is a huge statue that is been under construction for many years called the BIG BUDDHA It is consider for many people as Phuket new icon which is a 45 meter high and 25 meter width statue. There is also a smaller golden Buddha behind the BIG BUDDHA and a great view of Andaman sea
Phukets largest Shopping Mall
We only went here once on the day Peter took us for a drive, and really only ate lunch here at Fuji, which is his favourite restaurant! Central Festival is I think the largest shopping mall in Phuket and also has the advantage of being air conditioned! Huge selection of shops and restaurants here, so maybe next time I return to Phuket I shall just have to spend a day shopping here! Also, many people will tell you that things are much cheaper in Phuket Town as opposed to Patong. Phuket Town is about a 30 minute drive from Patong I think, so not very far at all. You can hire a tuk tuk, a driver or even catch a bus there.
Tiger Entertainment Bar Beer
With the combination of many small bar counters and music at the ground storey, and dancing floor on the second storey, Tiger Entertainment Bar Beer is simply the biggest bar in Patong or perhaps Phuket.
From good liqours, dance floor, music, live band with DJ to sexy local girls, one can see Caucasians, Asians and Blacks all flocking to this bar.
