Get to Know Phuket Island

Dec 2018

Home to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Phuket is surely a lot of people’s dream destination. The island is located in the south of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. It is the second smallest province of Thailand with 386,000 residents and consists of another 32 smaller islands. Hailed as “Pearl of the Andaman Sea”, Phuket is also listed among the destinations of several cruises. Its history dates back to 500 years. Fun fact: back in the 16th century, Phuket was important because of natural resources founded on the island, which included tins, hardwoods and rubber. Nowadays, Phuket is best known for its pristine beaches and nightlife, especially around the area of Patong beach. You can expect a long stroll along the beach at night, nice drinks at Bangla road, relaxing massages almost at every corner and a whole lot more. We also recommend you take a day trip to visit the nearby islands and other attractions. Here’s the must-visit list: Kata Noi beach, Big Buddha and Karon View Point. Oh, and don’t forget to go see the sunset at Promthep Cape. Bring a beer and a good company and prepare to fall even more in love with Thailand.
