Phuket island has everything to offer for a perfect holiday, whether you are travelling alone, as a couple, with a group of friends or the entire family. Beautiful beaches, tropical weather, delicious food, endless shopping possibilities, amazing viewpoints and attractions, beauty and massage parlors, luxurious spas and accommodation that suits anyones budget.
Phuket is surrounded by smaller islands, of which the Phi Phi islands to the east are the most popular. In the north lies the beautiful Phang Nga province.
Whilst the old Sarasin bridge has been rebuilt to a public promenade, ideal for a sunset visit, it's the newer Thepkrasattri bridges which connect the island to the mainland, making Phuket accessible by road, air as well as by sea.
The most popular tourist area on Phuket is Patong with its vibrant nightlife and endless shopping possibilities.
Most developed beach towns are located on the west coast of Phuket. South of Patong you will find Karon, Kata, Kata Noi, Nai Harn and Rawai with the famous Promthep Cape.
Kamala, Surin, Bang Tao, Nai Thon, Nai Yang and Mai Khao are located north of Patong and are visited by those who prefer a less crowded and more relaxed environment.
