Phuket is Thailand’s largest and most popular island. It’s 48 km long and 21 km wide – you are never far from the sea, no matter where you are.

Phuket is located in southern Thailand, approx. 862 km south of Bangkok on the western side of the Andaman Sea.

Tourism on Phuket has been developing tremendously over the last 15-20 years when the first real charter guests started visiting the island.

The island is still very popular with charter tourists and is also Thailand‘s most important tourist destination.

Phuket is what most associate with stunning beaches with azure blue water and a myriad of activities and experiences.

The island is surrounded by everything from spectacular scenery and exciting temples, to amazing street kitchens and beautiful sunsets.

Patong is Phuket‘s busiest city and probably best known for its wild nightlife with go go bars, clubs, ladyboys cabaret etc.

Phuket has many areas other than Patong. Among the best known are Kamala, Kata, Karon, who all have their own to offer. There is life in all the cities, but not at all like Patong.
