Phuket is the biggest island of Thailand and sits on the Andaman Sea. Being a big island, Phuket is surrounded by many world’s finest beaches and is said to feature the most beautiful sunsets in Thailand. With fine white sands, swaying palm trees, glittering seas and lively towns, it has something for any taste and budget.
There is plenty to do and see on the island. Phuket is steeped in history, visit its unique temples. A favourite with more adventurous tourists is a stroll through the Old Town, an area that lives and breathes the island’s history of tin mining, some 200 years ago. Many of the temples used as bases during Phuket’s famous Vegetarian Festival are within walking distance of each other and there is even wildlife downtown, on Monkey Hill. It is hard to separate Kata from its picture perfect white sandy beach. But there is a lot more to the place, what with colourful bars, countless restaurants and good shopping. Another good option for a couple of hours is the viewpoint up on the hill between Kata and Rawai and then you can always visit Kata’s Buddhist Temple on Patak Road while the kids’ favourite place has to be Dino Park.
Patong is the most famous beach resort in Phuket, With its wide variety of activities and nightlife, Patong is an ideal place to party and play. By night the town has a bustling nightlife which includes literally hundreds of restaurants, beer bars, Go Go Bars and of course nightclubs. You can see why the island is a hotspot for tourists in Thailand.
