A disaster at the beach, Phuket

This post is about what not to wear or do at a beach to avoid looking like a disaster.

I will probably sound like a bitch in this post and I accept that, but it’s not surprising if you get photobomb by tourists in almost all your pictures.

Another couple commented that this is the worst place on earth, and even though that is a little of an exaggeration, it is definitely not some where I would want to be.

So here goes!

Do not wear granny long dress to a beach. Unless it is a really sexy one with a resort vibe and preferably worn at a pool or beach villa, than it is fine. Otherwise you will not only end up looking like a disaster, it will also be an impractical and a messy business.

An umbrella at a sunny beach? That’s a sin! If you can’t embrace the glorious sunny day blessed for a day at the beach, stay indoor! Otherwise you end up sticking out like a sore thumb.

I know neon colours are trendy these days but clashing bright neon colours are not for the faint hearted.

Floral top matched with floral bottom? I’m speechless.

Big bright and large beach hat. That is so Fong Fei Fei.

Huge flowers on your head? Checked. A huge bright scarf ? Checked. A beach? Checked. Waving a huge bright scarf on a beach with a huge flower on your head while getting your picture taken? Definitely something you see out of an MTV from the 1980s.

Never ever attempt to take girly-acting sexy-unnatural looking photo right in front of a big wave. You look more like a drench chicken. Try something strong and sexy instead. Like a standing or walking towards the beach pose. Imagine the girls from Baywatch.

    HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH! I totally get your post. I see the same things in Boracay, Cebu and Bali as well! Hahaha.

    Well at least they are consistent.

    You so sound a tad bit bitchy in this post..lol ! Personally i find a bit bright beach hat or floral on floral totally acceptable (the lady in the picture maynot be a perfect model for it though).
    Was wondering what you would recommend ideally for the beach then – other than Singapore’s “national” outfit – shorts, t-shirt, flip flops ?

      Hi Julie, haha yes I know it was a bitchy post. Oops.

      I love Kaftan on top of bikini at the beach! Especially those cheesecloth cotton material.

      Otherwise a cheery comfortable play suit will look good too!
