Apart from beautiful beaches and cultural heritage, Thailand is also popular for its amazing food. So make sure you try out different Thai dishes during your Phuket holiday. A way to experience authentic local food is to visit one of the island’s street food markets (e.g. the Naka street food market). These markets offer all sorts of Thai food from fresh seafood to super yummy sweets.
I guess you know the drill of how to avoid the traveler’s tummy like no ice cubes, no salads, peeling all fruits… and all the other ways to prevent stomach bugs.

I generally drink lots of Coca Cola when I am travelling in developing countries and brush my teeth with bottled water rather than tab water. That generally allows me to eat a bit more of the street food without having stomach issues. The Coca Cola might be placebo though but it seems to help :
