Phuket

Located just off Thailand’s west coast in the Andaman Sea, Phuket has long been a favorite holiday destination for adventurous travelers. Combining stunning beaches with dramatic limestone cliffs and a rugged forested interior, there’s no wonder it has been dubbed the “Pearl of the Andaman”.

Phuket Town is home to fascinating Sino-Portuguese architecture and legendary shopping, and there are a number of elevated lookout points where you can take in the sweeping coastal views. The island’s popularity as a tourist destination means that the dining and restaurant choices are second to none, with Phuket’s lobsters considered a local delicacy.

Phuket is so large that it really doesn’t feel like an island at all, but there are plenty of smaller offshore islands, ringed by pristine, white sandy beaches, where you can enjoy that quintessential tropical island vibe. The crystal clear waters which surround Phuket are also home to vibrant coral reefs, teeming with marine life, and the diving and snorkeling is world-renowned. From the underwater marvels of the Similan Islands to the dramatic landscapes of Phi Phi Island and the famous “James Bond Island”, there are plenty of island hopping day trips for that perfect mix of sun and underwater adventures.

But away from the islands and beaches, Phuket’s jungle-clad interior also boasts exhilarating white-water rafting, as well as elephant back treks to explore its diverse flora and fauna. For those after a more local insight, why not visit one of Phuket’s farms to learn about the rich Thai rice growing traditions, or even take a rural ox-cart cart.

Phuket is that perfect mix of off-the-beaten track adventure and luxurious beachside charm. So however you like to travel, we have a Phuket shore excursion to suit, and there is no better way to end it than at the Promthep Cape viewpoint, which offers an unforgettable sunset over the Andaman Sea.
