Located about 540 miles south from Bangkok, and connected to the mainland by a 100 meter-long causeway, Phuket is a tropical magnet for international travelers and a melting pot of Buddhists, Thai-Chinese, Portuguese, Muslims. With stunning beaches that provide a wide array of water activities including scuba diving, yachting, water-skiing, windsurfing, jet-skiing and parasailing, as well as a legendary nightlife that has made it one of Thailand?s most popular and economically stable regions.
The most famous beaches are Patong, Kata, Karon, Kamala and Nai Harn Beach, but with 33 sister islands many ideal for ideal for sailing, swimming, diving & snorkeling, the selection is nearly infinite. Other attractions include the Phuket Aquarium, the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, and five golf courses, including the prestigious Blue Canyon Country Club.
Phuket is hot and humid throughout the year with the warmest months from March to early May. During the summer monsoon season from May to October, mornings and afternoons are typically sunny and clear, but it tends to rain in the evenings which reduces water visibility. November to February is considered the "cool" season although conditions are comparable to Florida's summer weather in temperature and intensity of rain storms.
Phuket is an ideal base from which to explore the Andaman region. It boasts a well developed infrastructure with excellent accommodations, restaurants for every taste and budget, dive shops, and a comprehensive variety of shopping options. If you've already decided on a vacation in Thailand, Phuket should probably be high on the list of itinerary choices, and we will be happy to help you create an itinerary that lets you link it with the rest of your priority destinations in Thailand and throughout the Asian Pacific.
