Phuket is Thailand’s most popular beach destination. On the west coast, an endless string of gorgeous white sand beaches is swept by rhythmic waves rolling in from the Andaman Sea. On the east, glorious sunrises play on daily repeat. In between, a landscape of mountains, rivers and lush tropical forests meet, infused with a surprising Sino-Portuguese heritage that reaches its zenith at delightful Phuket Town. Phuket is a Thai beach holiday with so much more. It’s also launching point for the dazzling karst limestone regions of Phang Nga Bay and the Phi Phi Islands.
