“Hey guys! Studying in Phuket was an absolute dream. The people are so friendly, the scenery amazing, and the food spicy… but yummy! As I was first contemplating going abroad, Germany was my first choice. While I was thinking it over, a friend came up to me and invited me to go with him to Phuket. I’m so glad I went with him because the experience was priceless. I got to meet so many interesting people and explore places I didn’t know even existed. If you are having a similar problem figuring out where to go, I’d love to talk with you and convince you to go to Phuket”
