Thai Cooking Class in Phuket Thailand

Food in Thailand is like a religion. I am not kidding. The food here is phenomenally delicious, fresh, healthy and inexpensive.

So if you find yourself in Thailand you should do yourself a favor and take a cooking class. Make sure it includes a trip to the local market for ingredients. The market is an amazing treat in itself full of color, scents and the sounds of Thailand.

Big Buddha on Nakkerd Hill in Phuket Thailand 

One of my favorite places in Thailand to visit is the Big Buddha above Karon. This is an amazing and very calm place to visit. The big Buddha of Phuket Thailand’s official name is Phra Phutta Ming Mongkol “the Cherished Auspicious Lord Buddha atop Nāga Hill” . It is located at the very top of Nakkerd Hill. Construction began in 2004 and is the 3rd tallest Statue in Thailand. The Big Buddha statue is 45 meters (148 feet) tall and 25.45 meters (83.5 feet) wide and is made of concrete and covered with Burmese white marble.
