Whether you are a honeymooner, planning a bachelor trip, a family holiday or a simple solo traveler, if you are looking for a destination that will not be boring, regardless of the number of days you stay, head straight to Phuket Thailand. Thailand has dozens of fabulous holiday spots that are a standalone destination in their own right. Phuket takes the lead undoubtedly for everything that it has to offer.
From exotic and secluded powdery white beaches and tranquil islands to happening nightlife to nature to a vibrant culture, food and shopping – there is nothing that Phuket misses out on and has just the right balance of everything. The best part is that it is one of those destinations where the budget should not be an issue since you will find something to suit every budget easily.
- Getting to Phuket is less expensive than many exotic Thai islands and provinces such as Chiang Mei and Koh Samui. Being the largest and the most attractive tourist island in the country, Phuket has a large international airport that receives direct flights from many countries. If your state does not offer an immediate trip to Phuket, you can take Emirates to reach Phuket directly with transit in Dubai. Alternatively, you can book any other plane directly to Bangkok and book another cheaper domestic airline to Phuket with a short layover in Bangkok. Flights to Phuket generally fly in and out of Bangkok every hour.
Great Accommodation Options
- Phuket has some of the most fantastic resort choices, and you need not rely on those bunks and dorms to save money. If you cannot afford the beach resorts at the touristy Patong, move slightly away towards Kata or Karon for cheaper luxury resorts with beach access. Although these beaches are quieter than the touristy Patong, they are much cleaner and tranquil. If budget is not an issue and you want to head to a more dreamy paradise, take a ferry to Koh Phi Phi and check in to one of the beach resorts at this white paradise.
Variety of Attractions
- Phuket has something to keep one busy for every age group, budget, and taste. From the adventurous jungle trekking and white water rafting to the vibrant and entertaining Phuket Fantasea to the dreamy island tours and sightseeing options, there are numerous tours in Phuket to choose from. You can book online or buy from one of the vendors on the spot.
Easy to Get Around
- Getting around is exceptionally economical in Phuket. Instead of using local public transport such as Tuk Tuk, you can rent a bike for under $10 per day and move around the island at your discretion. If you are a larger group, you can also rent a car at economical rates. If you are not comfortable driving around, Grab a fantastic ride-sharing application that offers cheap transport options.
