Kruvit Raft & Old Phuket Town

After a day of volunteer work and team building, we have started the serious part of the trip. The next two days were full day training starting from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm with no view of the beach and blue sky except during tea breaks and lunch time.


Day one of our training was over and time to head out for dinner. We have no idea where we were going for dinner and just know that we will be having dinner on a floating platform. We went back to our rooms to change into shorts, all ready for a sumptuous seafood dinner.

After sitting in the van for more than forty-five minutes, we were still not near any floating platform restaurant. Then we were told that we need to take a boat to the restaurant. I was telling myself that the food better tastes good else not worth the trouble.

After a short boat ride, we have reached Kruvit Raft, the seafood restaurant where we will be having our dinner.

Upon arriving at the restaurant, all the trouble we took to get there was forgotten as we were mesmerised by the beautiful colour of the sky. I was busy taking pictures instead of checking out the dinner menu.

After a sumptuous seafood dinner, we headed to the Old Phuket Town area to buy mango as it was mango season.

It was a nice way to end our last evening in Phuket. Once again, would like to thank my colleagues for organising the off-site event, the great recommendation of the restaurant and bringing us to check out the wholesale area, old Phuket town and also buying mangoes.

The next day, we continued with another full day training, role play and presentation and caught a late evening flight back to Singapore. It was a fruitful trip, both in terms of learning, getting myself equipped for my new role and getting to know my colleagues in the South East Asia region.


Goodbye Phuket! Till we meet again.

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Living for Experiences!

  1. Those crabs, the sunset, the…everything! I understand this is the “work” part of the experience, so you’ve set a high bar for those of us seeking to turn our vocation into our vacation. Thanks for sharing Audrey, even though I’m a bit jealous…

    1. Well, early bird catches the worm. Waking up early to take a walk along the beach was definitely the right decision I made. Was a wonderful start to the day. And yes, I am blessed 😊
