Phuket is blessed with many stunning beaches, sheltered by tall coconut palms waving in the breeze. Every bay is unique, and all offer wide views of stunning sunsets which are sure to put the romance into your Phuket holiday.
One of the finest bays is at Phang Nga, which can be reached by speedboat. Considered one of the most beautiful locations of its kind in the world, its spectacular sheer limestone cliffs will be familiar to anyone who saw the Leonardo diCaprio film The Beach.
Accommodation in Phuket is plentiful and is geared towards catering for visitors on all budgets. These include a good selection of hotels catering for those on a package holiday or all-inclusive holiday.
Golf and scuba diving are the most popular pursuits in Phuket and if these don't take your fancy, you can wander around the town, exploring its cultural heritage and bartering for bargain souvenirs of local arts and crafts in the town's market.
Phuket's cuisine encompasses a variety of international flavours, as befits its cosmopolitan nature. Restaurants offer choices ranging from Indian and Italian to Mediterranean and American fast food. The island also offers lots of opportunities to eat wonderful traditional Thai cuisine from outlets ranging from roadside stalls to elegant restaurants. A memorable meal of fresh local seafood can be enjoyed in one of the open-air restaurants overlooking the ocean.
Lively nightlife has become a Phuket trademark, and the number of loud, hi-tech discos and brash bars is constantly growing. A novel attraction is the Minivan Bars - converted camper vans which ply their trade on Bangla-Rat-U-Thit Road and Beach Road, where locals offer cheerful and unique surroundings in which to enjoy a beer.
