About Us – Phuket 101

Phuket 101 Blog shares 30 years of Phuket exploration and thousands of photos for those who love Phuket as much as we do. This blog is written from our real experiences: we tried and visited every place, and we paid for almost everything, which allows us to keep our honest opinions, and we are pretty strict about this. Phuket 101 was born on January 15, 2011

We started this idea because too few websites were talking about Phuket the way we thought would be truly helpful to travellers. Some were too formal, some were hard to read or not visually attractive, and some were too niche. we wanted to share a thousand photos we took along our life and the fun things we discovered in my endless wandering around Phuket, Phi Phi Island, and Phang Nga.

Phuket 101 now has more than one million followers on Facebook, and 20,000 on Instagram and gets more than 250,000 visits per month, which is about 500,000 page views per month.

Our Mission

Our goal is to help visitors plan the best possible trip to Phuket, whether it is their first time or returning travellers. We help people decide when is the best time to visit according to the weather, and it is not always the high season, low season can be superb and more affordable. Then decide where is the best beach to book their hotel, and what kind of accommodation will fit their budget and their lifestyle. Then once this part is done, we share all our knowledge and experience to plan their stay, where to go, what to see, where and what to eat.

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”.

The origins

Born in France long 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 countries I love most are Thailand, Japan, Korea, India, France and Italy, all known for their excellent food because food matters to us a lot.

Previously, I was a Radio DJ and Set Designer at Club Med, and I had a successful advertising company in Phuket called Andaman Graphics, specialising in logos and website designs. I then worked for a well-known international company called Expedia.

My passion for photography and endless curiosity have taken me to many places in Thailand and Asia, living between Bangkok and Phuket. I still travel here and there several times a year, both for fun and work.
