Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and it is very popular with travellers. You’ll want flights to Phuket too after you find out about all the incredible experiences awaiting you in this paradise.
There are spectacular beaches all over the island, with white sand, shallow clear waters and palm trees providing you with shade when you don’t have a parasol. Kata Beach is popular with families due to its range of accommodation options, and surfers flock here between May and October. Patong Beach on the other hand is for those looking for a bustling nightlife with an abundance of lively clubs and bars.
Several smaller islands just offshore are worth visiting for their pretty scenery including James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay, nicknamed this after its use as a location in “The Man with the Golden Gun”; the limestone rock of Koh Tapu jutting out of the emerald waters there will bewitch you. Combine a visit here with other striking sights in the bay such as the floating village of Koh Panyee for a magical day out.
There is so much you can do once you get cheap flights to Phuket. How about rock climbing in Krabi by the white beaches of Railay Beach? Scuba diving and snorkelling are also very popular, and with the aquamarine crystal waters, tropical fish and coral reefs, it’s easy to see why; try Coral Island to see parrotfish among underwater boulders, or the Similan Islands for drift diving among coral gardens.
