Here we are at Sarasin Bridge. This is the first bridge that links between Thailand mainland, which is Phang Nga province and Phuket island.
In the past, they said that they used elephants to bring people to cross over the seawater to Phuket.
This bridge was built in 1967. At present, we can still see the local life here by the sea. And, you know, when people talk about this bridge, local people will think of one true story which is a tragic story about a couple.
The couple decided to come here to commit suicide by jumping from over the top of the bridge into the water. They tied themselves together before jumping.
It is believed that, every full moon day, they will find two rabbits coming to the bridge, which represents the spirits of the couple. Something similar to Paris and Seoul! Tie the knot.
Wow! It's a beautiful day here on Kata Beach.
I drove just around 10 minutes from Patong, and then I arrived here. It's not too far. I think it's one of the most beautiful beaches on Phuket island.
The beach is long and they have various kinds of activities to do.
You can come here to sunbathe. You can come here for jet-skiing, para sailing, surfing or just swimming.
And also, it's not very far from the town or from the southern part of the island. I love it here!
The name of this temple is 'Wat Phra Phud'. It means 'Rising Buddha'. The Buddha that was found risen from the ground.
This buddha statue was discovered around 400 years ago by a boy, a local farmer boy. This ground used to be a paddy field 400 years ago.
He saw the sharp stick of the head of the Buddha risen up from the ground. But, he didn't know that was the top of the buddha statue.
In Thai culture, head is the most important part of the body. You don't touch anyone's head. What he did made him pass away as well as the buffalo. He passed away because he tied the rope of the buffalo.
He came back in his father's dream and told his father to go back out there to find the buddha under the ground. So, that's how it was discovered and it became a temple after that.
Beautiful view from top of the mountain, this reminds me of Griffith Park in Los Angeles or even Victoria Peak in Hong Kong.
This is the most popular city viewpoint in Phuket. You can see the whole city pretty much.
From the East side all the way here. You see that little light up there, Patong is behind that view. And then, further down is Karon, further down is Kata. So now, we're looking West. Chalong Bay is over South, the town is expanding out so much, from that direction.
People love coming here at night.
And now, you are at Chalong Temple, which is one of the most important temples in Phuket history.
Because one of the abbots in the past. His name is Luang Poe Chaem. He was the leader and the one who encouraged local people to fight against 'Ang-Yi' or secret Chinese society during the tin-mining time.
So, many people respected him a lot.
Here we are at the southernmost part of Phuket island.
This is Phromthep Cape where people around the world gather here every evening to watch the sunset.
But sometimes, it depends on the weather conditions. Today, maybe it's just after the rain, but it's still so chilling and calm.
So, just to be here and walk around, observe the nature. It's already worth coming. I really recommend you to come here in the evening time.
Tonight, I'm going to the Night Walking Street. Let's come with me!
Welcome to Patong Beach. This is the most famous beach in Phuket, full of international travellers every day.
During the daytime, it's a beautiful beach you can come here for sunbathing, for water sports.
But, at the nighttime, it becomes a nightlife district where there're a lot of bars, restaurants, music, entertainment, everything. But for locals, we normally call it 'Bangla Road'. So, if you ask for this street, don't say just walking street, just say the name 'Bangla'.
Many years ago, there used to be Tsunami (Big Wave). This road was affected. So, they have evacuation sign now. When there is a warning of Tsunami, you can just run on this street. Because there's a little hill at the end of the street.
