Bang Tao Beach

Bang Tao Beach Phuket is one awesome beach and when you arrive you will know what I mean, the beach is huge and when you arrive, the view is one of the best in Phuket. If you don’t know where Bang Tao beach is, the beach is located north of Surin beach, right behind this beach stands Laguna Phuket which has numerous 5 star resorts inside.

One of my all time favorite swim routes is located right here at Bang Tao, there is an entry point down on the south end and my exit point is about center beach; whole swim is about 2 kilometers and I try to come up here from my home in Kata beach to do this excellent swim.

When you arrive on the beach you will also notice plenty of seaside dining areas, take your pick, each one of them are nice to eat at and all of them have a great view of the beautiful Andaman Sea. I love to come up to Bang Tao and often just never seem to get enough of this location, it’s just soooo beautiful, so make sure you plan a few days at this wonderful beach; take pictures, dine at one of the many restaurants, enjoy the water, the place is incredible.

Surin Beach

Surin Beach Phuket is a small beach that is located north of Kamala beach, this small little beach is a lot of fun to visit, we come up here almost twice a month from our home in Kata beach, it really is that nice. One thing you notice right away when you arrive at Surin beach is the number of small seaside dining locations; these are a real joy to have a late afternoon lunch or sunset dinner. If you like Thai and seafood at very cheap prices this is one of the best places to go, and you get the ultimate seaside dining only a few meters away from the beautiful waters of the Andaman Sea.

The surf at Surin beach can be pretty rough at times, so please be cautious, one of my many distance swims that are around the Island of Phuket is located right here. During the low season there is not much activity on the beach, same goes with high season, you never really experience the overcrowded feeling.

Kamala Beach

Kamala Beach Phuket one of Phukets pristine beaches, Kamala beach is located just south of Surin Beach. One thing about the northern beaches, they generally dont get the high concentration of tourists as do the southern Phuket beach line does. Kamala beach is also another place I like to do distance swims, my main entry point is on the southern end of the beach and from there I head north to my exit point.

Kamala beach reminds me very much on what most of Phuket was like over 25 years ago, its relatively undeveloped, you can rent a bungalow near the beach cheap, plenty of small seaside restaurants to choose from and of course you dont really have the crowds, no matter what season it is.

During the low season Kamala beach is often only has a few tourists on the beach, some business establishments even close down this part of the season so, if you visit Phuket during the low season, you can count on not traveling to a crowded beach.

The surf can also get a little bit rough during the monsoon season, so please take extra caution when doing any type of water activity during this part of the year. If you are looking for great places to eat, no problem, you can find numerous seaside restaurant locations all up and down this great beach.

So please don’t forget to visit Kamala Beach during your next trip to Phuket, you’ll be glad you did.

Rawai Beach

Rawai Beach Phuket is located on the eastern side of Phuket Island, the eastern shore beaches are not the best to swim in, I often, about once a week head down to Chalong pier and swim the length of the beach, the water is very clean and I would recommend it to any beach goers.

One of the most beautiful sites on Phuket is the Thai fishing boats, when you arrive to Rawai, you will be amazed at all the beautiful fishing boats anchored in the water, during sunrise the view could not be more pristine, be sure to bring your camera, you will get some excellent Rawai bay shots with the surrounding islands in the background, I believe if you kept at it enough you could probably get some good post card material camera shots here, it really is that beautiful.

You will find a great variety of seaside restaurants along Rawai, one of the best is located on the North end of the beach; Nikitas which has been around a long time and the setting is the best in Rawai. So during your time in Phuket, take a ride down to Rawai, explore the many different restaurants, walk along the Chalong pier, you will truly enjoy this area of Phuket.

Yanui Beach

yanui-beach-300-200Want to go to a really secluded beach? You can find this seclusion right on Yanui Beach Phuket, this small beautiful Phuket beach is just south of Nai Harn beach tucked away between Promthep Cape and the wind power station, just take road 4233 and you will run right into it.

One thing I like about this beach is there is a small island not too far out, I have swam to this island a few times and it is a very beautiful swim, the last few times I have been to this beach I have been the only person. During the high season Yanui beach traffic picks up some, but for the most part not too many folks use it.
When you are driving any of the roads south of the island just be careful, the roads are very windy.

Nai Harn Beach

One of my favorite beaches in Phuket is Nai Harn beach; Nai Harn beach is located on the southern point of Phuket. One of my best swim routes is up at Nai Harn, I love to swim out to the small islands just off the beach, and just the joy of being in the water and seeing the beautiful marine life really is a sensational feeling. If you like to do long swims, just be cautious during the monsoon season, the surf can get pretty rough.

Another favorite activity of mine is body boarding and Nai harn is one of the best locations to do this sport, the surf is excellent most of the time; so bring your body board or surf board. If you like to just lounge around on the beach, Nai Harn is an excellent choice, it really never gets that busy and you dont have that crowded feeling when you are here, so please enjoy! You will love it here!

If you’re looking for a place to eat around the beach area there are plenty of places that serve good Thai and seafood, and of course not far away is the town of Nai harn and you will find plenty of places to eat around the town area.

The biggest resort located on Nai Harn Beach is the Royal Phuket Yacht club; inside this resort they have a nice little Fusion restaurant the Regatta, we have dined there a few times and the place is wonderful, you really get a good view of Nai Harn beach from this location.

Phuket Expat Makes A Living Online

Many people don’t know that it’s possible to make a living online, or at least a good extra income. Most think you have to have to go to college and have a great job to make a lot of money these days. Well if you think that way, I’m about to really surprise you, and show you exactly how you can make a lot of money online starting now!

Don’t worry it’s not a scam, pyramid scheme, or any of that fluff. I know, when I first heard about making money online that was the first thing that came to my head too. But when I started collecting checks every month, my whole theory changed!

So enough of all that, I’m actually going to show you how to start making money online now! What I want you to do first is go to a website called ClickBank and sign up (it’s free). What they do is manage a bunch of different products that you can promote for a commission. All you need to do is send traffic (people) to that product page, and if they buy, you make your commission. The correct term for it is, becoming an affiliate. Here’s a quick example to clear your up your confusion. Lets say one of the products is selling for $100 and you get a 50% commission. Every time you make a sale, you’ll obviously make $50. So if you get 10 people to buy it, you’ll get a check for $500! See what I mean, it’s possible to do and extremely easy!

Once you’ve signed up in ClickBank, the next important thing to know is obviously picking a good product to promote. Now this is where a bunch of affiliates fail to be successful online. But right now I’m going to tell you a quick tip that helped me become extremely successful, very quickly. Under each product in the “Marketplace” of ClickBank, there’s something called “grav”, what it means is Gravity. What that tells you is if the product is selling well. You always want to pick a product that is over 50 gravity. If the product isn’t over that, don’t go for it! Once you know that, you’ll be able to successfully sell products on ClickBank. The reason you want the Gravity to be high is because that tells you that other affiliates are successfully selling it. Let me tell you a quick secret that most people don’t know about Gravity. The number of Gravity actually means how many affiliates that product has! For example, if the gravity is 75, that means 75 different affiliates are selling the product at that time… Easy enough right?

So now that you have that down, go make some money online! It’s seriously not as hard as most people think, especially when you have the right people teaching you. That’s how I became successful online, just happened to be around the right teachers at the right time!

If you want to find out more about how you can become successful online through affiliate marketing, and also find out WHERE to promote, check out my free 7-day Bootcamp! I actually explain to you in detail how I did it, and how you can “actually” use the exact steps I did. It’s worth it, and it’s free, how could you say no!

The Two Biggest Reasons Why Most People Will Never Make a Full-Time Income Online…

Working in Phuket or finding some type of job that can earn a sustainable income to survive while you are here can be incredibly frustrating, but did you know one of the best jobs in Phuket is working online , yes! Work for yourself, the Internet is a GoldMine , you just need to know how to tap it.

The Two Biggest Reasons Why Most People Will Never Make a Full-Time Income Online…

Video Reveals How This works..

It all starts when some well-meaning (yet misdirected) person encourages a budding internet entrepreneur to “start in a niche they know alot about”, or base their business around “something they’re passionate about”…

As horrible as it may sound – they’ve unknowingly sent the hopeful entrepreneur down a path of false expectations, poor results and eventually – failure. In fact, the myth of “do what you love and the money will follow” has been responsible for more failure than likely any other influence – perhaps even more so than laziness or a lack of perseverance.

Because the simple truth of the matter is that the only way you’re going to make real money on the net is if your business is based around two crucial things:

1) Large Demand

2) Buyers

In other words – you aren’t going to get rich selling a $15 ebook about growing square watermelons – even though that might be a great passion of yours.

The demand just isn’t there. Maybe there’s a few searches a day on Google for the topic, and perhaps there’s some interest in the online “gardening enthusiast” communities – but you’d be hard-pressed to make even a few hundred dollars a month from ebook sales.

Similarly, you also aren’t going to have a particularly easy time getting rich by building websites about some seemingly “popular” topics like humor, jokes, funny pictures and so on. And while there are a few ways to “monetize” your site (with AdSense, CPA Offers, CPM Banners, etc.), it takes literally millions of website visitors to make even just a few thousand dollars in markets like that.

The demand is huge – but the visitor value is extremely low…

Instead, if you want to make it big online – pulling down an impressive six-figure income – you need to tap into markets with tons of demand, where the majority of the visitors are valuable.

You need to capture tons of traffic that wants to buy something. If you take this approach, you’d practically have to hijack your own order links (or affiliate links) not to make a sizeable income.

In fact – did you know that some affiliates make several thousand dollars daily just by promoting a single product in hot markets? (Just imagine what the merchant is making…)

In some markets there’s actually so much demand that the vendors are quite literally selling over a thousand units – or more – per day. Digital products, with practically zero overhead/delivery cost.

But it all comes back to tapping into valuable demand. In most cases, it takes no extra effort or “skill” to market to a valuable market than it does to struggle along with something you’re passionate about.

These two factors – demand and buying traffic – are what separate the “wannabe” marketers from the millionaires. Because there’s no real secret – you just need to sell what thousands of people are already buying.

The ball is now officially in your court. Are you tapping into markets with massive, valuable demand?

Or are you struggling to simply make a few dollars occasionally with a business that’s based on your own passionate interests?

Chris Rempel, author of “Confessions of a Lazy Super-Affiliate”, reveals 5 of his most effective traffic strategies and niche-targeting tactics in full detail How This Works…

Retire In Paradise

Retire In ParadiseMy first visit to Phuket was over 25 years ago, since then I have called it home. After 22 years in the US Navy, I knew Phuket was where I wanted to go. We live on the northern end of Kata beach, Kata beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket. Kata is located just south of Karon beach.

Many folks as me is it possible to retire in Phuket? The answer is yes. But how can I make a living? Making a living in Phuket is very easy to do, you can do this by working online, just like any start-up business it’s going to take a lot of work, but if you understand the basic mechanics of working online, you too can make a decent living just about anywhere, all you need is an Internet connection.

The Internet is a Goldmine, you just need to find the right niche, once you find this niche you can really profit on it. During the last few years in the US Navy before I retired I earned my Master degree in E-business, so I really got some good in-sight on what the Internet can do for you.

Just remember the tools are already in place, you just need to know how to use them. Many folks are stuck in the rat race of day to day life, an economy that is going into a deep recession, as I write this article the unemployment rate in the USA has just gone over 10%, millions of people are without jobs and the few jobs that are out there are very slim picking.

Retire to paradise and live your dream…
