Where to Eat in Phuket Thailand

Phuket Seashell Museum Thailand

I love to comb the beach, looking for unique shells and then learning about the animals that make these shells a home.  It’s a fun activity and I learn something new.  However, very rarely do I ever keep the shells; I have a teeny, tiny shell collection on Starry Horizons. ...
