This stunning location is actually a large island nearly the size of Singapore that is connected to the mainland of Thailand via bridges. Because of its beauty, Phuket is known as the “Pearl of the Andaman.” This beauty attracts global tourists in droves.
Phuket is home to dozens of beautiful beaches – from remote stretches of sands to the busy frenzy of the popular tourist beaches. Phuket also has many smaller islands surrounding it, ready for you to explore. Whether you want to spend your time lying on the beach, swimming in the water, or visiting bars, pubs, the mall, or the Thalong National Museum, there is something for everyone in Phuket. And with plenty of resorts to cater to tourists, you’ll have your choice of accommodations – more than 5,000 new rooms are expected to be finished by 2015.
