Over the weekend, the Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star posted a number of photos “with my childhood friend in Phuket!” as he put it in Thai in his caption. The series consisted almost entirely of the two exploring the city, as well as scuba diving and hanging out at the beach.

Last week, the Marvel actor first revealed he was in Thailand with snapshots of himself performing Muay Thai and checking out the exquisite architecture and food of Bangkok.

“Peter and I have been talking about taking this trip for over 10 years,” he began. “That’s over a decade we’ve been dreaming of night markets and pad thai, krapow and kicking the s--- out of each other. long overdue but we finally made it… and it was so much better than we could have imagined.”

Before venturing to Thailand, Liu enjoyed a Mexican getaway at the Four Seasons resort in Punta Mita with girlfriend Allison Hsu.

He posted several photos of himself at the beach during the day before ending the series with a nighttime snap of Hsu, 27. “Necesita relajación,” he captioned the post, which translates to “need to relax.”

In August, the actor opened up to PEOPLE about his relationship with Hsu, whom he was first linked to in late 2022.

"I think she really just has taught me the value in so many things. She's absolutely changed my life, so I'm very, very grateful to have her," Liu said.

"She's really taught me that you have to fight for the time with the people that you love, she's really taught me that you need to be intentional and tend to each and every one of the relationships that matter to you," he continued.

Liu then noted that "life, work and the hectic chaos of all of these different schedules and different people's agendas moving you around applies a lot of pressure on you."

He added, "It really is up to everyone to choose how to spend their time when they can, and to be intentional about just fighting for the ones that they love."
