What to do in Phuket
Phuket's numerous beaches are perfect for a relaxing beach holiday, and there's plenty to do - other than relaxing! Most of the resorts offer a good range of water sports, and diving is particularly good in the surrounding area. Phuket Town makes an interesting visit for a slice of Thai life away from the beaches. There's excellent shopping in Phuket Town and in the main beach resorts - and don't forget the fabulous Thai food!
Where to stay in Phuket
Stay in the lively beach resort of Patong for a fun filled holiday with great evening entertainment. Nearby beach resorts such at Kata and Karon are more peaceful options for relaxing beach holidays in Phuket, but with easy access to Patong's nightlife. Elsewhere on the island, more peaceful locations offer Phuket's wonderful white sand beaches, and are perfect for a truly relaxing holiday. The renowned Laguna Resort Phuket offers five hotels of excellent standards and is a great family option. There's an impressive range of hotels available, from great value options to five star luxury. Standards of hotels tend to be very good, and a warm welcome is assured.
Holiday ideas to Phuket
Beach holidays in Phuket can be combined with time elsewhere in Thailand or combining Phuket with other parts of the Far East. A twin centre package holiday combining Bangkok and Phuket works extremely well, or a multi centre holiday combining Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Phuket gives a great view of Thailand. It's also possible to combine Phuket and Singapore or Phuket and Hong Kong - most things are possible!
The island of Phuket is Thailand's most visited resort - and for good reason. This beautiful island has numerous white sand beaches interspersed with magnificent headlands, while the lush interior is hilly and varied. The area around Phuket has some stunning scenery and some undiscovered corners. Made famous by films such as 'The Man with the Golden Gun' and 'The Beach', the coastline in the region is spectacular.
