MOTORCROSS GEAR, Muay Thai Gear and Larger Ladies Clothing (16 and over)

by babyranga

Hi, I'm new to VT but have found it really informative so far. My hubby and I are travelling to Phuket on 25th September for a week and were wondering if there are shops over there that sell any of the above (just want a few pieces for our boys) and some clothing for me haha!

Their sizes in the stores are small, like I wear a XL, BUT i need a XXXL to fit comfortablely. There are stores all over to buy different gear. I am just afraid to get things that won't fit so shop well.. As to motorcross gear, I would not trust the materials for safety. I would rather buy from genuine companies. Many Thai stores may have counterfeits, so look out for them. have fun, cheers Tommy x

Tha aren't into motocross. 95% of bikes are road bikes. Not sure what you are looking for specifically.
The muay Thai gear on the streets will be poor quality. Better to buy from a gym or a sports store and there are several on Phuket.
Look out for 'export' shops all over Thailand. They sell western sized clothes at very cheap prices. I am currently wearing a pair of genuine Reebok shorts that I bought from an export shop for $7 for which have lasted for 5 years.

HI there Debbie,
Im not too sure about the Motorcross gear, ive just come back and didnt see any of that. The Thai boxing gear is everywhere, especially the shorts, in Patong anyway. And as for the Ladies clothes, size 16 and over, well i hate to disappoint you, but I dont think you will find any of that. I am a size 12 usually and in Thailand I am an XXL and struggle to find stuff to fit me!!! But good luck searching!! Where exactly are you going to be staying in Phuket?

Travel Tips for Phuket

Patong Beach

by jrs1234

Patong has a long (2km or so) beach which looks quite attractive. It's long, curved and tree-lined, but it has a couple of drawbacks - firstly it gets really crowded, but secondly and more seriously the road runs right past it for most of the way. So you get lots of noise and pollution from what is a very busy road!

The more northern section has a part where the road is at a distance - that was the most crowded bit. It's not a peaceful beach, but if you're just there to pick up a tan, it'll do the job...

Powdered faces

by Tina-Perth

You will frequently see Thai people with a white powder on their faces. It is talcum powder mixed with water and is applied to help feel cool and fresh. It absorbs sweat and is supposed to protect one's skin from the sun too. We have a friend who owns a restaurant in Phuket. If you go to see her, she will not let you kiss her in greeting unless she's wearing her talcum powder. She sees it as a freshness mask, I think.

At the Songkran Festival, Thailand's New Year Festival held in April, it is traditional for people to throw or squirt water at eachother and at strangers too. Talcum powder is then often thrown after the water, creating a pasty white mess, but it's tradition! : ) Watch out if you're there for Songkran!

Seeing the Light

by Vickster

Pay a visit to Boat Lagoon on the east coast of Phuket.
It's a quiet backwater - lots of yachts and cruisers and even a lighthouse.
The perfect way to relax is to sit outside one of the excellent cafes and restaurants and watch the world sail by.

Souvenior shop

by faridah

This shop is tuck away in the narrow lanes of Patong.
You can get cheap local souveniors and handicrafts. You cant get the same price at Patong Top.
They have lovely handicrafts,scarfs and Tshirts.
It is rather unfortunate that I only stumbled upon this shop on my 2nd last day as i have bought most of the stuffs I needed. I still bought the nicely sequinned letter holders at 100 baht each.
Perfumed candles in small tiny elephants candle holder in set of 6. 4 sets at only 100 baht. The shops in front of Patong quoted me 500 baht for the same stuffs.
Got a T shirt at 100 baht.
A beautifully carved wooden back scratcher at 100 baht.
I would really recommend this shop.

All night jamming!

by earthboundfaerie about Margarita Bar

This is such a fun little place to go to! It's just one of Bangla Road's little bars where foreigners go for the Thai girls, some live music and cheap beer. But what sets this place apart from the rest is their friendly band!! A trippy mix of their European guitarist/vocalist, their Filipina singer and keyboardist and their Thai drummer, other guitarist and bassist, they invite you to sit once they see you trying to catch a glimpse of their set. People who want to jam with the band are always welcome!! They play everything from tunes you can dance to to some of the more popular rock classics from The Police, U2 and even some stuff from Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Blur. They're great to watch as they're pretty good and a lot of the foreigners loved them! One guy from Europe jammed with them on Blur's Song 2 and he had such fun that he did it again. My husband also got to jam with them a lot since my husband plays bass so he sang and played bass for Sting's hit Every Breath You Take and played bass for a few mroe songs after that since the bassist wanted to take a break and because the crowd loved him, hehe. Everybody there were all so friendly and all the other guests looked like they were having so much fun especially after the band got everyone dancing!! :-) very very casual
