Thailand's gorgeous largest island, Phuket is undoubtedly one of the world's most popular holiday destinations. A true emerald gem that offers stunning beaches, a wide range of dining options, spectacular sceneries, non-stop nightlife and gorgeous Buddhist's temples.
The first things that come to mind when talking about Phuket are its spectacular beaches. From the exclusive Surin and Ao Bang Thao to the unspoilt Rawai in the south, or the vibrant Patong on the west coast, the island's "sin city", home to clubs and go-go bars, Phuket's beaches are so diverse that everyone will find what they are looking for. Phuket is also blissfully positioned close to some other spectacular locations: places like Koh Phi Phi and the Similan Islands have not only some of the most beautiful beaches in the world but can also offer spectacular diving spots. These beaches are often the main reason why tourists keep visiting Phuket, but venture just a little inland and you'll discover an island rich in culture, with beautiful Sino-Portuguese architecture, fantastic museums, a fabulous dining scene that incorporates many cooking styles and some of the most iconic Buddhist temples in Thailand.
