Thailand Destinations

Phuket

Phuket, Thailand


Phuket is Thailand's largest island and lies off the west coast of Southern Thailand in the Andaman Sea. What used to be a sleepy Muslim fishing village has turned into one of Thailands most popular tourist destinations. With white sandy beaches, sparkling clear blue seas and spectacular colourful sunsets, it is clear to see why people love to holiday in Phuket.

 

The island has a rugged tropical mountain range which passes right down the centre creating two distinct sides. The west side of Phuket has the warm clear waters of the Andaman Sea lapping the shores of palm fringed white beaches. This is the popular beach resort area with hundreds of hotels to suit all budgets to choose from. The east side of the island is home to the main port districts of Phuket and up and down the coastline you will find plenty of scenic coves with great views overlooking the deep blue waters of Phang Nga Bay.

 

There is a lot you can do in Phuket with plenty of different adventures for different tastes. The famous Patong Beach is the best spot for water sports, superb dining, market shopping and nightlife. If you are after solitude, beaches south of Patong such as Kata and Karon Beaches are usually uncrowded even in busy periods. If you are wanting total relaxation, then head north where there are several plush resort spas for total decadence and beautiful lush green courses for a round of golf. Make sure to visit the idillic destination of Koh Phi Phi (Koh means Island in Thai), a one and a half hour ferry ride off the south-east tip of Phuket. This secluded, jungle covered island is surrounded by gorgeous, clear blue waters gently lapping the majestic limestone cliffs.
