About Phuket

Phuket is the largest island of Thailand which is known for its beautiful beaches. It is 48 km in length and 21 km wide at its widest part. Geographically it is located in the Southern Thailand. The water of the Andaman Sea creates majestic view at the time of sun set.

The island is so large that it is divided into regions namely, Western Phuket, Souther eastern Phuket, Interior Phuket and other small islands to the south eastern Phuket.

The place is beautiful beyond imagination. The crystal clear water at the shore looks like a rippling mirror reflecting the sunlight in bits and pieces. The coral forests teach the use of colors and how colors do magic. There is so much to see on the island ranging from the caves, cliffs and forests to the national park and beaches. It is a paradise for the nature lovers. But it is not to be misunderstood that the area is just a jungle.

Phuket is one of the most developed islands in Thailand. You will get all the amenities and things of comfort here as you can get at any developed place. There is an airport at the island so it is pretty convenient to reach here. The inter city transport consists of local buses, Songthaew, taxi, motorbike taxi, tuk tuk, and boat.

The sceneries at Phuket seem unrealistic. The cliffs standing in the water create the sight described in a fictional novel. The blue sky and sparkly cobalt water make up one of the most fantastic views to observe.

The place is perfect to ease your mind and body. You can go on boating or fishing where you can admire the beauty of the place while you get rid of the tensions and worries of your life. The place is also suited for the fun loving and enthusiastic persons. There is also option to go for swimming, snorkeling, diving, jet skiing, yachting and parasailing.

Dining:At Phuket you have the option to choose from the local Thai food, delicious sea food and dishes belonging to other nations. There are many restaurants and food stalls set up by the Thai local and foreigners here where you can fulfill the needs of your stomach and tongue.

Local Culture: Like most of the sites, Phuket is also a mixture of Thai, Muslim, Malay, Sea gypsies, and Thai-Chinese culture. The majority of the population is Muslim. The dialect of people is hard to understand even for the mainland Thais.

Stay Safe: During summer, some beaches have strong currents so keep out if you see a warning flag. It may be dangerous to go as there have been few deaths because of it. The crime rate has also increased in Phuket so watch out for the people who try to thug you. Do not go on streets alone at night. Keep the number of tourist police 1155 ready at your phone.
