Holidays in Phuket
Phuket is Thailand's largest island located on the Andaman side of the southern Thai peninsula is accessible by road over a bridge linking to the mainland. Phuket remains one of Thailand's most popular and best know beach destinations with Patong beach holding its own as the most commercial resort on the island. Plenty of nightclubs, bars and discos attract revellers to Patong, but Phuket has so much more to offer its visitors. Away from the party crowds beaches such as Kata and Karon offer enough entertainment to keep travellers happy whilst providing a more laid back vibe too. Beautiful resorts and hotels abound all over the island with everything from simple guest houses to luxurious private pool villas.
With plenty to do other than soak up the sun, Phuket is a winning destination. Find Sino-Portuguese architecture in Phuket town, along with a few Chinese temples and a museum showcasing Phuket's history through photos and a collection of exhibits. Shopping of course features here with plenty of boutiques, markets and a designer fashion outlet selling clothing at a bargain price. Picturesque Phang Nga Bay is within easy reach and is a must for a day trip. Here crystal clear turquoise waters are dotted with craggy limestone islands with tiny white sand beaches and hidden bays. Not to be missed!
