Last year, we celebrated my sister's 30th birthday in true style! To the envy of all my friends and colleagues, we decided to escape to the gorgeous Thailand for 2 weeks. Staying on the wonderful island of Phuket (Thailand's biggest island), this trip to Phuket earned itself a place on my 'epic moments in my life thus far' list. There is so much to do and so many gems that you really shouldn't miss out on. Here is a list of the top 5 things to do in Thailand.

1. Phuket FantaSea Show- Kamala Beach

Inspired by Thailand's vibrant culture, this entertainment complex is bright, exciting and crowded. Yep it was definitely crowded. Between admiring the absolute beauty of the complex and taking a million selfies, you will also have to mind out for the massive elephants carrying tourists around the complex. Fantasea is a theatrical show, with music, actors and animals- everything from elephants to birds. I loved every single bit of it and found myself smiling like a big, excited kid.

2. Bangla Road night life- Patong Beach

Similar to London's Leicester Square, Bangla Road is bustling with people, whether day or night. With heaps of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops, it's buzzy, exciting atmosphere cannot be denied. We sought out a Hip Hop and R&B club. Although pretty empty, we had a wicked time as we danced the night away to the DJ's selection of nineties R&B and Hip Hop tracks. If you do visit Bangla Road in the evening, get ready to be constantly hassled by people offering free entry to see ping pong shows. Not up my street but if that's your cup of tea, you will definitely be in your own kind of Heaven.

3. Big Buddha- Chalong

The drive up to see Big Buddha is long (45 meters high) and winding and you get to see the 'real' Thailand on the way. Big Buddha stands on the top of the hills and looks down over Chalong, Kata and Rawai. The views from up there and Big Buddha himself were breathtaking. Be careful what you wear though! I had on a playsuit and was swiftly given a sarong to cover up by the lady at the entry point (shaaaame)

4. Tiger Kingdom

Some call it straight up crazy, others call it brave, but whatever you call it, you have to do it! At Tiger Kingdom you get the chance to lay down with/ on/ next to one of the world's most stunning animals, the tiger. Not only was this experience daring and a tad scary, it was surreal too.

5. Khao Lak Safari 

This included elephant trekking through the jungle (which I could not do as I was 5 months pregnant at the time), bamboo rafting and feeding wild monkeys. This excursion was bloody brilliant.

In addition to all of the above, when in Thailand, you have to ride in a tuk tuk, have a proper thai massage- they are ridiculously cheap, yet so incredible. And as for the authentic Thai food? Get stuck in. It's bangin'
