This weekend I had the opportunity to travel to Phuket, Thailand. Since arriving in Thailand I have been able to compare and contrast the culture in Chiang Mai and Khon Kaen and now Phuket. Phuket, a popular tourist destination, is located in the southern part of Thailand. Before arriving in Phuket, I expected it to be a tourist area but to also have a similar experience as I did in Chiang Mai. In comparison to Khon Kaen and Chiang Mai, Phuket lacks the Thai culture that I have come to observe and experience. I was surprised that there were more middle eastern people in Phuket. During my orientation week in Khon Kaen, I learned about colorism in Thailand. In Phuket, I noticed darker skinned It has been interesting to observe the differences in the three provinces of Thailand.
