Airport beach, Phuket

In december 2016 we were visiting good friends living in Phuket. We came by plane and was about to land when we flew over a long beautiful beach. Down on the beach some people were waving and some others were swimming in the sea like nothing -big -is -flying over their head. I wanted so bad to be the one down there waving up to the plane! 

How happy wasn’t I when the very same afternoon my friend proposed us to go to Mai khao beach where we could see planes slowly land onto the phuket airport. 

When arrived to the beach my friend pointed out the best spot to have a good glimpse of the planes. If you dare, you can even stand just right under the planes. Just beware of the noices from the engine! Or worse, something falling down?!?

Mai khao beach, Phuket. 

It’s rarely fun to wait for something but sitting there by the beach waiting for a plane to land…it was fun! 

Warning!!! My friend in Phuket told me that since 2017 for the safety and security reason it is now forbidden to stay around the area where the planes land. Please make sure that it’s allowed if you decide to go there!
