Holidays To Phuket: Guide + Hotels

Sunset on Patong Beach Phuket
Sunset on Patong Beach Phuket

Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is located south west in the Andaman Sea. It is famous (or infamous) for the wild nightlife and other forms of entertainment of Patong Beach. But at approximately the same size of Singapore, it has a lot more to offer visitors, such as a diverse array of natural wonders and wildlife, also a chance to sample local cuisine and experience village life.

Patong is the vibrant heart of the island, and features many of the attractions of a major city like Bangkok. While many of the big hotels serve international cuisine, there are also many local places with great food at cheap prices. And somewhere in the middle, there are restaurants serving both Thai and Western or fusion dishes. Bangla Road and its lanes are crowded with bars, especially the go-go type, but also a more regular variety for a quiet drink.
