Every generation has its preferences; generation Z is no exception to this. Generation Z is a demographic that is born between the mid-90s and mid-2000s. They heavily rely on the internet and social media. They follow Youtube and Social influencers from where they absorb tons of information on where to travel, what to do, how to do it, what to buy, and so on. Another common trait is that they are not as big spenders as Millenials and the baby boomers. But what they lack in funds they compensate in numbers as they are the single largest demographics, more than millennials and baby boomers.
The following guide takes all that in the account. Here are the best places to visit and things to do if you belong to the generation Z and you are visiting Phuket.
The Fisherman Village is truly a unique one as it sits entirely on stilts. There are more than 300 families that live there and are friendly and open to all visitors. There is even a small football stadium where kids play and a restaurant where visitors can taste local fresh food.
The rock formations around Hong Island are a wonder of nature that cannot be unseen. Sometimes the kayakers are asked to lay down to avoid hitting the low rock formations. This is one of those things that one moment is super relaxing while the other is thrilling.
Phi Phi is Thailand’s most famous island because of Di Caprio’s 2000 movie “The Beach”. For many people, the island is the sole reason why they visit Thailand in the first place. But the island is worth the hype. The beach-fronted beach, the cliffs above it, the crystal clear water, all that fits nicely into one of the coolest places in Phuket, if not entire Thailand.
There are several night markets and each with its charm and each with some distinctive feature. They are packed with souvenirs at low prices, excellent street food, street performers, and anything in between. They need to be seen to be believed.
The actual name of the island is Ko Ta Pu which means spike. The island got its nickname, James Bond Island when it appeared in the 1974 James Bond movie – “The movie with the Golden Gun”. Since then it has been referred to as the James Bond island.
Getting from Phuket airport to Phuket Town is possible via taxi, bus, rent-a-car, or welcome pickups. The bus is the cheapest option, but most of the times it is overcrowded, and it doesn’t run at night. Renting a car, same as everywhere else doesn’t come cheap, and you need navigation to get you where you want to go. There is around the clock taxi, but most drivers don’t speak any English, and even those that do have a difficult to understand accent. Welcome Pickups is an online service that offers the same rates as taxi companies, a designated driver that speaks English and online booking.
