Start your trip

Posted on 11/19/2019

When going on vacation, it's more than a good idea to know a bit about the place you're heading to. It makes your trip a smoother one. Geauxing Places Travel in Denham Springs, Louisiana, is here to help with that. As a full-service travel agency, our primary aim is to make sure when we get you to any destination for a holiday, you make the most of it. We handpicked a few basic things you need to know before traveling to Phuket.

The Tap Water is Not Drinkable

If you are used to just opening the tap and drinking the water without having to worry whether it is drinkable or not, you cannot do that in Phuket because the tap water is not drinkable. You can easily get drinking water in convenient stores that are cheap and safe to drink. If you are lucky, your hotel may provide complimentary bottles of water for your consumption.

Don’t Forget Your Guidebook

A guidebook will be of great help in Phuket because the locals may not necessarily speak English. That is not to say that English is not spoken at all in Phuket, but not everyone can communicate in English or can communicate beyond a basic level. So, it is really advisable to get a guidebook that will make it easier to navigate this place.

Weigh Your Options

When you need to buy something on the streets of Phuket, you need to weigh your options and decide if it’s a necessity or not because even though the product may seem cheap at that point, you will later discover that it is usually more than four times cheaper in malls or other places. To save cash , it’s better to buy in those places that sell for lesser prices.

Be Careful of Scammers

Being a tourist makes you vulnerable to scammers, so you have to be extra careful. For instance, sometimes in jet skiing places, they may demand that you pay for damages on the equipment that you are unaware of, so the best thing to do is to check properly if there are any damages on it before you use it. Another popular scam is the friendly Taxi booths in front of hotels, who will rip you off by charging way more than is being charged normally. Also, like in any other place, you have to be mindful of your property so that it won’t get stolen.
