Well, it will be pretty silly to deny how social media affects our lives. But, let’s be honest, when you see something beautiful or funny, almost the first thing that goes to your mind is that you want everyone to see it. And what do you do? Right. You post pictures or videos on your social media. A lot of travelers were searching for the best selfies’ spots in Phuket. And here is my personal list. I did not put them in any order, so you can choose your favorite by yourself.
Number 1: Promthep cape. Breathtaking, picturesque, mesmerizing…Especially during sunset time. The place is pretty crowded during golden hours, so do your best to find the best angle. Do not leave straight after the sun hides behind the horizon and you will be rewarded by a colorful sky.
Number 2: Phuket Old Town. Its Sino-Portuguese architecture together with colorful street art makes every corner “instagrammable”.
Number 3: Big Buddha. You can spot the huge image of Buddha sitting on top of the hill overlooking Phuket Town, Kata, Karon, Chalong Bay and more. Sceneric view together with the peaceful atmosphere makes this place one of my favorite on the island.
Number 4: Samet Nangshe Viewpoint. Even though this place is technically out of Phuket, I strongly recommend to visit it. At least once. Because I am sure you will want to come back. Drive there before sunrise to meet it on the top of the world!
Number 5: Baan Laimai Hotel. This one is pretty new and it keeps growing with new displays. Go and check it. I am sure you will fall in love with the white stairs!
Number 6: Baan Ar Jor House Museum. This house with hotel, restaurant and museum inside always has been one of the mysterious old mansions on the island. The renovated house looks real and keeps its soul. There is an admission fee of 200 THB per person, which goes to the local community, but for this money, you are allowed to take as many selfies as possible. The house is also a great wedding photo backdrop, frequently featured in magazines.
Number 7: Ma Doo Bua Cafe. Have you ever seen giant floating leaves? They are the reason this café is getting more popular. You can take drone photos from above while sitting in the Thai wooden boat. If you want to take a couple of unique photos, this is the absolute right place to go.
And traditionally, it is not advertising, but the true opinion of one girl who made a hundred beautiful pictures in Phuket for her social media.
