1. Trickeye Museum

Phuket Trickeye Museum Entrance

Phuket Trickeye Museum Ticket

It was a rainy day and I’m glad this was in our itinerary as it’s indoor. No shoes and socks are allowed inside. The staff will ask you to deposit your shoes before entering.

I’ll keep photos to a minimum so it won’t be a spoiler. Here are two tips for your photos to be realistic.

TIP 1: Notice the way you position your hands

Phuket Trickeye Museum Painting

See? No point acting so much if your hands are not in the right place.

Phuket Trickeye Museum Drawing

Again! Use the correct hand please.

Phuket Trickeye Museum Money

And again…

Phuket Trickeye Museum Elephant

Even worse, standing in the wrong place.

Phuket Trickeye Museum Puppet

Okay, this time round it’s me.

TIP 2: Unleash your acting skills!

Phuket Trickeye Museum Boxer

Hmm… Nice try?

Phuket Trickeye Museum Snake

Not bad, seeing some improvement as we go along.

Phuket Trickeye Museum Crocodile

My hair made it not so realistic. No choice, can’t defy gravity.

These are probably the best shots towards the end when we were more “experienced”.

I haven’t been to the Trickeye Museum in Singapore so I can’t compare, but some of the exhibits are different. Overall, we had an enjoyable 1.5 hours at the museum and it’s a good wet weather option.

2. Natural Restaurant

Panya then recommended and drove us to Natural Restaurant.

Natural Restaurant Table

The “restaurant” has a rustic feel and not fully sheltered so some tables were wet from the rain. There were also more seats upstairs.

Natural Restaurant Vegetable

Natural Restaurant Meat

Natural Restaurant Rice

Natural Restaurant Drink

Apparently, their dishes are prepared without MSG. We ordered only two dishes to share as we weren’t very hungry and they turned out okay for us. I feel that this place caters more to tourists and they also have 400+ reviews on TripAdvisor.

3. Thai Hua Museum

We wanted to visit a place that has an educational touch to it, so Thai Hua Museum it is!

This Chinese typewriter is so cool. If you look closely, each little metal block has a Chinese word embossed intricately on it.

Last stop for the day was Karon View Point. Panya was very nice and offered to be our photographer. If you don’t have a driver then don’t bother going up as we spent only 15 minutes there.

Phuket Food Stall

Phuket Food Stall Table

Panya dropped us back at Sugar Palm Grand Hillside and we took a dip in the pool before venturing out for dinner. We had no idea where to eat and just kept on walking until we spotted this random food stall by the road. The entire stall was makeshift, but they had a good selection of seafood on display so we gave it a shot.

Phuket Pineapple Rice

Phuket Prawns

Phuket Soup

Phuket Dinner

Food turned out to be good! The barbecued prawns were really fragrant. Pineapple rice, tom yam soup and stir fried vegetables were all good. Happy to have a satisfying meal to round up the trip!
