Phuket 101 Blog shares 27 years of Phuket exploration and thousands of photos for those who love Phuket as much as we do. This blog shares our real experiences. We tried and visited every place, we paid for everything which allows us to keep our honest opinions, and we are pretty strict about this. Phuket 101 was born on January 15, 2011
There were a few websites talking about Phuket, but none were enjoyable. Some were too formal, some were hard to read or not visually attractive, and some were too niche. I wanted to share a thousand photos I took along my life and the fun things I discovered in my endless wandering around Phuket.
What does ‘101’ mean?
101 (pronounced “one-oh-one”) is the 1st course in a subject taught at a college or university in Australia, Canada, South Africa, or the United States. By extension, “101 is generally used to indicate the basics of any subject”.
Are we sponsored?
We are not paid by the Tourism Authority of Thailand to promote Phuket!
We do not get paid, and we pay for all our meals, the vast majority of our hotel stays, flights and trips.
Born in France a long, long time ago, I started to travel the world in my 20s and never stopped until I finally settled in Thailand in 1994. I went and worked in 40 countries around the globe. Most memorable are Tahiti, Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, New Caledonia, Burkina Faso, Niger, Algeria, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Sahara, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia, The Maldives blah, blah, blah, so my love for Thailand follows a long history of exploring other countries. The four countries I love most are Thailand, Japan, India, France and Italy, all known for their excellent food, because food matters to us, a lot.
In a previous life, I was Radio DJ, Set Designer in Club Med, and had a successful advertising company in Phuket called Andaman Graphics specialising in logos and website designs.
My passion for photography and my endless curiosity has taken me to many places in Thailand and Asia, living between Bangkok and Phuket. I still travel here and there in the world several times a year, both for fun and for work.
