Where to stay in Phuket
Phuket is a major tourist hotspot and rightfully so, possessing rich culture, colorful history and some of the best beaches mother nature could provide. You’ll also be able to indulge in activities like water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, enriching forest hikes and more. Accommodation options abound from five star resorts like the Angsana Laguna Phuket to more budget-friendly options.
The sun, sand and sea are things you simply cannot ignore when in Phuket, with pristine beaches that provide visitors with a multitude of options for activities. The more popular beaches include Patong and Karon, both of which are clean and very accessible to visitors around the area. Aside from sun tanning and building sandcastles, the more exciting water activities include snorkeling, diving, parasailing, jet-skiing and anything new that you can find from the multitude of shops available.
You can always opt for something a little more laid back like fishing, and a great place to hone such skills is AC’s Phuket Fishing Park. It’s a freshwater fishing experience that includes several species of fish, including red-tailed catfish, alligator gars, Siamese giant carps, piranhas, Siamese sharks and the massive arapaimas. The fishes here can reach massive sizes, making your catch a lot more memorable (not to mention tiring).
Eating and drinking and shopping nearby
Phuket has many beaches that suit every kind of traveler wish and need. The Patong area for example is known as a party capital of the world, so not a quiet and peaceful place if that’s what you’re seeking. There are countless entertainment sources here, including beach clubs, bars, and several restaurants serving up local and western cuisine. You can also find good value massages, allowing you to relieve stress further after the sun has gone down at the beach. The island of Phuket is full of cosmopolitan food as a result of the booming tourist trade. Many visitors never returned home after setting foot on the island and have since set up restaurants and cafes catering to the taste-buds of their fellow travelers. Seafood is an obvious favorite on the island. There are many beachside restaurants and bars on the island that serve Thai food and are discovered through word of mouth. They're well worth a try; just ask a local for a good one!
Phuket International Airport is the main entrance if you’re coming in by plane, and it serves several international airlines. Budget carriers also reach here. There are bus services, taxis and shuttles that connect the airport to the town. The bus network is pretty extensive, and it connects to places like Bangkok, Chumphon, Hat Yai, Ranong and more. A journey from Bangkok by bus can take about 13 hours.
