The most quiet area of the rather crowdy Phuket has stolen our hearts. And we’re sure our stay at The Vijitt Resort had something to do with that as well.

Prosecco with plums and thyme

Some inspiration for a tasty, refreshing aperitif is always welcome during summer, preferably not too difficult but still startling.
