Where is Phuket?
Dubbed as the pearl of the South, Phuket’s stunning backdrop of blue skies, powdery white sand and crystal clear waters can be found. Phuket is on the west cost of Thailand and linked by a bridge to the mainland. Bangkok is about an hour and a half flight away.
Phuket is Thailand’s most populous, most visited, most varied, most electric and lastly most exciting island. Temperatures are usually above 30 degrees and September is the drizzliest month for rain. Population is around 320,000 and is tearing at the seams with like-minded travellers looking for a great getaway.
Patong beach is the main touristy, atmospheric and happening area. Although it’s crowded and dense, Patong really is the centre of entertainment where you get to party and play all day and night. Cosmopolitan bars and cafes are plentiful as with food stalls and activities abundant. Patong really comes to life after dark and can be a tad overwhelming along Bangla Road.
Visit Karon, Kata and Kata Noi beaches for a relief from the hustle and bustle of Patong.
