Travel Tips for visiting Phuket

The tropical island of Phuket is located in the southern part of Thailand, in the Andaman Sea

Phuket is the most popular and largest island in the kingdom of Thailand

With its incomparable panoramas, its beaches bathed in the Andaman Sea, its forests (the Royal Nature Reserve of Khao Phra Thaeo), and its incredible nightlife,

Phuket is an indispensable destination during a stay in Thailand. The island in South East Asia is an ideal starting point for your next adventure to Ko Phi Phi Island, Ko Yao Island, Phang Nga Bay Nature Park, and many others.

It is connected to the mainland by a bridge, and thus accessible not only by plane but also by land (680 kilometers from Bangkok).
The largest island of Thailand with 810 square kilometers (more than 100 kilometers of coastline in its greatest length), it is a province in its own right and derives most of its income from tourism, after having massively developed its infrastructure throughout the 1980s and 1990s. The main city of the island, Phuket Town, is located in the southeast part of the island, but it is not very popular with foreign visitors. Indeed, with one or two exceptions, almost all the beaches are concentrated along the west coast.

The most frequented sectors are in the southern part of this coastline (Patong, Karon, and Kata beaches). It is in Patong, in particular, that most of the activities peripheral to the beach are gathered (restaurants, bars, discotheques, shops, etc.).

Phuket: what to do?

Apart from the seaside pleasures, Phuket offers by its very size a wide range of possible outings, especially since its relief is surprisingly varied. Phuket is also famous for the quality of the surrounding underwater sites and attracts many diving enthusiasts. Most hotels in the area are open all year round.

As everywhere in Thailand, many stores are dedicated to beauty care and various treatments. There are also many kiosks on the beaches where the same services are offered. Try Thai massage, unless you have back problems. Otherwise, the famous foot reflexology is practiced
