Finding Yourself in the Heart of Phuket

If you’ve ever found yourself pursuing your own “Eat, Pray, Love” project, there’s no doubt that Phuket has made it onto your travel list at least once. Finding yourself comes with various implications. Perhaps you’re on the road to discovering your true calling or simply want to explore uncharted territories.

Regardless of your purpose, Phuket is a stunning escape for those who need to clear their minds and focus on themselves for a period of time. Whether you’re looking to shift careers, redefine your relationships with others, or achieve your ultimate life goals, finding yourself can begin at the Yama Hotel Phuket!

Enjoy Life Along Patong Beach

Only a half-hour drive from the Yama Hotel Phuket, Patong Beach is rich with exciting activities such as paddle boarding, snorkelling, kayaking, and scuba diving. If you’re up for a couple of drinks and a night of dancing, Patong Beach is also the place to be.

Indulge in a Relaxing Massage

For just 300 baht, you can escape the bustling city and destress with an aromatic body massage. Especially after a full day out, being able to treat yourself is an important step towards the eventual goal of finding yourself.

Discover Delightful Dishes

Heading out and about for an authentic Thai meal is a must in Phuket. Pad Thai is a definite go-to but you can also discover other tasty dishes such as Tom Yum Goong or Tom Kha Kai for anywhere between 90 and 150 baht. It’s also worth giving street food a shot—you won’t want to miss out on Phuket pancakes!

Pay Homage at a Temple

What makes Phuket such an attractive “Eat, Pray, Love” destination is its ancient temples. Wat Chalong is one of the largest Buddhist temples in Phuket and can be spotted from almost any town. A quiet and peaceful place to spend your afternoon, it’s important that you adhere to temple rules out of respect for religion, culture, and rituals. Women, for example, must cover their shoulders and knees and you mustn’t touch any of the Buddhist statues.

Visit a Night Market

There’s no better way to adorn your home with little local gems than by visiting a night market. Boisterous and exciting, night markets make up for hot and humid afternoons and is chock full of food, clothing, accessories, home decor, and even musical instruments. Whatever you’re on the hunt for, you’re likely to find it at the night market. In fact, you might even take home something unexpected—you usually never know!


Finding yourself can take place anywhere in the world—even in the comfort of your home. But breaking away from daily life to discover something different is often empowering and in Phuket, you won’t miss out on any opportunity to do so.
