Phuket, Thailand

Chris Alwin James

Had the great fortune to travel with friends to Thailand. These images are a set of two, this first set from Phuket, the amazing beach side of Thailand.

After an initial night spent in Bangkok, we flew to Phuket to begin the first leg of our journey. One of the first things you notice is that the people here are SO nice! Quite happy to direct the wandering traveller. And the place.. simply beautiful. We stayed at The Nap, in Patong. Such an amazing hotel!

Had the opportunity to visit the Phi Phi Islands, Big Buddha in Phuket, and some of the local temples. Oh and also, not to forget the shopping!

Met this rather talented artist. Some paintings so realistic, you'd think they're pictures.
