Enjoy the Beach in Phuket
It cannot get much better than this on a holiday if you have just arrived on your flights to Phuket - there are stunning sandy beaches, incredible diving opportunities, and smiling locals eager to please. This is one of the most popular tourist spots in Thailand and it is not surprising to see why so many people long for flights to Phuket.
Situated off the Upper Andaman Coast, the island has been thriving since the 19th century when Chinese merchants used it as a base for trading goods. Now it is travellers who engulf flights to Phuket to get there to enjoy the many pleasures the island has to offer.
The beaches are a pull, there is no doubt about that, but there are many other things to do while in Phuket. Not far from the town is the beguiling Butterfly Garden and Aquarium where local wildlife can be spotted, or a traditional Thai Village where you can watch Thai dancing and Thai boxing, as well as ride on an elephant.
You are bound to see food you never dreamed of before at the Fresh Produce Market, such as durian fruit, strange pickled fish, and slippery eels. There are various elaborately decorated temples throughout the town, including Bang Niew Temple and Wat Mongkol Nimit.
Further afield, there is a Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre, a voluntary-run organisation encouraging domestic gibbons to live wild again. Hat Patong is the most developed beach on the island with bars, discos, restaurants and hotels all vying for your custom. It is here where the most water activities are available as well.
