As kids we used to play a game when travelling to the seaside; the first person to spot the sea would win a few pennies to spend while on holiday. Arriving at Tusita Resort & Spa Chumphon, you can see the sea several kilometres away and it takes your breath away. So it was no surprise that I was as excited as a teenager as we checked in to one of Chumphon’s secret gems.

With one million square feet at its disposal, The Venetian decided to do something never before seen in Asia; it created three canals each 490 feet long and lined them with over 300 speciality shops, 30 fine-dining restaurants and a one thousand-seat international food court.
As our Thai Airways flight made its final turn to line up for landing at Phuket International Airport, we dipped below the fluffy white clouds and suddenly from my window seat I could see the appealing azure waters of the Andaman Sea. The Airbus A330-300 flight from Bangkok was packed with eager-faced holiday-makers all wanting to deplane and head to the wonderful beaches we were now only a few thousand feet above.
After a five-hour drive from Bangkok and a twenty-minute ferry crossing, it was a relief to have finally reached our destination. We turned off the car’s air-conditioning, turned up the music, and opened every window as we drove along the hilly coastline heading to Klong Prao Beach, a quiet stretch of coast that would be our home for the next three days.
