The ‘Pearl of South’, as Phuket is often called, is Thailand’s largest island. Connected to the mainland by a road bridge, it boasts international flight connections to most parts of the globe and a staggering choice of luxury hotels. Phuket is surrounded by tiny islands – most of them uninhabited – but some with upmarket accommodation for those who really want to get away from it all.

Holidays to Phuket – Cultural and scenic attractions.
The island features a long mountain chain forming a green spine from north to south, covering much of the land mass, with some staggeringly high peaks. Of course there are plenty of beaches to choose from. Patong beach is the biggest and most well known, providing a lively scene day and night. Those seeking something altogether quieter and more secluded, or perhaps even a top surfing or watersports spot, will not be disappointed. Golfing, fishing, and even elephant riding, are all possible on Phuket, which is also a major centre for spas, most of which successful combine eastern and western treatments. There is world-class nightlife ¬here, including extravagant shows that would put Las Vegas to shame. The island’s rich cultural life and exciting calendar of festivals is the result of a thriving community made up of Buddhists, Muslims, sea gypsies and Thai Chinese.
