Phuket - Thailands Tropical Island Paradise

Phuket has long been established as Thailand’s finest tropical, island paradise and this pearl of the Andaman Sea boasts an international airport connecting Phuket not only to Bangkok, but also to many other national and international destinations making it a very accessible vacation destination.

All the features normally associated with a tropical island are evident in Phuket from the palm fringed, coral ringed sandy beaches and cobalt and azure seas to the lush vegetation clad hills that often provide a spectacular backdrop.

Phuket offers something for everyone. Nature lovers can still find relatively secluded beaches, trek through jungle to waterfalls and wait and watch for turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs in the sands of the National Park.

Sun worshippers have an abundance of beautiful, sandy beaches to welcome them, not to mention the many luxury hotels with their sumptuous swimming pools and private, luxury villas complete with private pools waiting to accommodate you.

For thrill seekers, there is bungy jumping and go karting and for those in pursuit of slightly less dangerous but equally thrilling activities there is elephant trekking or canoeing through the limestone islands and caves of the nearby Phang Na Bay.

If its entertainment you want, there is the world famous Simon Cabaret or the Fantasea theme park and the bigger resorts such as Patong Beach offer a rich and varied nightlife. Of course, Thailand is famous for food and some of the best restaurants in the kingdom can be found on Phuket offering a wealth of international cuisines as well as some of the finest Royal Thai dishes.

Sports are extremely well represented with particularly fine fishing, diving, sailing and golf. Phuket has several marinas for visiting yachtsmen and a number of world renowned golf courses.

Phuket has become a mecca for everyone, a tropical island paradise for young, old, rich, famous, singles and families. Whatever you look for in a vacation, you are sure to find it here.
