Phuket is a city on the Southeast of Phuket Island in Thailand, the island itself being located in the Andaman Sea near the Kra Isthmus in southern Thailand. On the West of the island of Phuket are many beautiful sandy beaches, which have been developed into tourist centers including Karon, Kata and Patong.

Phuket was damaged by the 2004 Tsunami, but all the damaged buildings and attractions have since been restored.

Phuket Travel Guide


Thailand has a reputation for perfectly riding the line between relaxation and excitement, and nowhere is that more prevalent than the tropical paradise that is-Phuket. Within minutes you can go from a beachside massage under the shade of a coconut tree, to a never-ending club night in the party capital of the world.
Phuket is a province, an island, a city, and a general term for a large collection of islands in the south of Thailand. It will only take a little more than an hour to drive the length of the main island of Phuket, but it’s an area full of enormous variety and some of the best beaches, spas, wildlife, islands, resorts, and party spots in the world.
Phuket has something to offer everyone, whether you want a quiet week by the beach, an adventure holiday canoeing through tunnels and island hopping, or a blur of chaotic days spent between beach parties, nightclubs and neon bars.
To traverse all of this you will need help – which is where this guide comes in. Find the best ways to get to Phuket, discover how to get the most out of your budget, and explore all this wonderful island has to offer.
Whether you want to bask in the sun on the much loved west coast, lose yourself in a world class spa, gaze in awe at the south coast, find your way to the mythical isles of Phi Phi or Similan Islands, or go inland to Phuket Town-this guide has something for you.
If you’re coming to Phuket, then you’re coming to see some beaches, and it’s important you find the right one for you. Being literally surrounded by breath taking beaches, and with hundreds to choose from, making sure you make your base at the right one is important. Each beach comes with its own character, its own advantages, its own charms, and its own beachside collection of restaurants and hotels.
Once you’ve found the best beach for you, the question is: What to do with the rest of your time?
With this Phuket travel guide you will find out where Phuket’s secret beaches are hidden and the best time to get to the various islands on offer. You will discover some of the best entertainment around, and see recommended places to stay and places to eat.
With so much variety to offer, it’s not a question of finding good food or good hotels, but picking your favorite. Read about the best way to get around without getting ripped off, beat the tourist touts and make your own route, and plan a journey that is unforgettable.
Shop in night markets, discover local hotspots and hidden beaches, time your stay to experience some of Phuket’s beloved festivals, and of course, catch some waves.
Whether this is your first time in Phuket or your twentieth, you will always find that this island has something new to offer you, and the same things that made you fall in love with it.

Product Description:

Phuket is Thailand's largest island. It is 48 km in length, 21 km at its widest, and is in Southern Thailand.

It is known the world over for its beaches. There is a wide variety of beaches, some calm, some totally ruined by millions of visitors each year. But you can explore the interior of Phuket, a fertile hilly expanse that consists of mangrove forests, fishing villages, rubber and pineapple plantations, small Muslim communities and shrimp farms.

Popular kite surfing locations include Nai Yang in summer and Chalong Bay in winter season. Sea canoeing is a popular activity in Phang Nga Bay, as many grottoes are only accessible by canoe.

Wink Travel Guides introduce you to the best world travel destinations, in a clear and concise way, illustrated by photos.
