There is something magical about Phuket’s sunsets.

That fleeting moment when the sun descends into the horizon and the blue skies evolve into orangey-purplish earthy tones; every second is a wonder and we wish we could freeze time just to admire these natural phenomena for just a little longer.

Phuket clearly has no lack of bars, but the question is – which places boast the best vantage points? Here are 9 Bars in Phuket To Watch The Most Stunning Sunsets.


Mama Jin Restaurant – Your Best Bet at Karon Beach in Phuket

Mama Jin Karon Beach

Karon Beach is not the top-of-mind destination for travellers to Phuket. Which is a shame, because the beach is so much cleaner and prettier as compared to your usual Patong Beach and Kata Beach.

It is relatively untouched by tourism – as compared to Patong Beach¬†- and perhaps this is why food recommendations for the area is scarce too. Our first time to Karon beach had us struggling to find good eats, and most places look like tourists’ traps – which we loathe and always avoid. We’ve had several horrible meals at Karon Beach, got ripped off, and we were always grumpy after meal times.

But this was not until we found Mama Jin – an unassuming eatery that sits on the beachfront at the north of Karon Beach near to the lake. Yes, it looks like any other tourists’ trap along that stretch, but trust us on this: Mama Jin is your best bet at Karon Beach. We had an unforgettable Thai meal that was authentic, inexpensive and very satisfying.


A Weekend in Kata Beach Phuket

The Aspasia Phuket

There are many reasons why so many people fall in love with Phuket – white sand with turquoise waters and blue sunny skies; luxurious beach villas that will make you feel like royalty; cheap and delicious Thai street food; and wonder spa treatments for your tense shoulders after your flight.

Granted, Phuket has become very touristy in recent years as travellers escape there for a getaway, but there are still many beautiful beaches that are waiting to be explored. We spent a weekend in Kata Beach and had a memorable experience.
