Travel Adventure #10 | THAILAND | Soi Dog Foundation & Shopping


Welcome to Episode 10 of our Thailand Travel Adventure!

It's bittersweet but this will be the last episode of our Thailand adventures (for now at least). We will definitely be back to explore the rest of Thailand one day.

Our last 2 days were relatively laid back and relaxing. Lazy days filled with food, massages, more food, some shopping and soaking up the last days of our holiday. Read all about our activities!

Soi Dog Foundation

We spent most of our second last day visiting a wonderful non-for-profit charity organisation, Soi Dog Foundation, that was founded in Phuket in 2003 to help street dogs (and some cats) in Thailand. It was relatively far and off the beaten track but we were greeted by a lovely team of Dog lovers that spend everyday spaying street dogs to prevent an overpopulation of homeless dogs.

They continually rescue, vaccinate, shelter and help street dogs get adopted into loving families to give better lives to as many of the street dogs of Thailand as possible. They also fight to end the dog meat trade and rescue, treat and rehabilitate sick and injured animals. Please read all about this amazing organisation on their website.

Shopping at Jungceylon

We spent a few hours shopping at the Jungceylon shopping centre in Patong and spent a little bit too much money buying things we didn't really need and buying last minute souveniers for our family and friends. We always get carried away but the greatest thing about this day was that I had the most amazing Tom Yum Noodle Soup! It was a very happy person after eating this dish. If only I could eat more!

Our Last Massage

We spoilt ourselves the morning that we were leaving Thailand with an amazing back and foot massage. The perfect way to wind down and relax before our 9 hour flight back home to Australia.

Thank you Phuket! Thailand, you've been a blast! We will be back to eat our way through Bangkok one day! Thank you Steemians for joining us on our Travel Adventures through Thailand.

I'm thinking our next Travel Adventure series will continue with our Hawaii trip! Can't wait to share it with you all!!
