B. Value: No doubt you can find hotels to stay in, even at the peak of the season even if you arrive without a reservation. Eventually, you will find where to sleep. The main question is what will be the location, the price and what value will you get? It is known that the best hotels, the ones that give you the highest value for your money – are perceived months in advance.
C. Time. Every day in your holiday costs. If you arrive at the destination without prior reservation you will be required to start hopping around (with luggage and bags) between possible hotels – a process that will rob you of precious time, time better spent by the ocean, In the pool, massage or any other activity.
D. Possibility of cancellation/change at no cost until close to the date of arrival.
Phuket is not only a southern province in Thailand but also the name of one of its islands (which houses a third of its name, the provincial capital of Phuket City), the largest of its kind off the Thai coast in the Andaman Sea. In addition, there are over 30 smaller islands nearby. The island, a renowned beach destination that is the country’s second most-visited destination after Pattaya, offers visitors a variety of options in attractions and things to do ranging from the local beaches and resorts to souvenir shopping and visiting local attractions.
Known as the Pearl of the Andaman Sea in southern Thailand, its easy to see why Phuket attracts droves of tourists, young and old, year after year. The island is the perfect mix of white sand beaches, aquamarine sultry waters, natural beauty and culture, heritage and fun! With its own convenient airport, it’s easy to get here and enjoy the abundance of Phuket attractions, family-friendly resorts, hotels and activities, luxurious low-key hideaways, beach club cocktail sunset sessions, night market food frenzies, and pumping go-go bars and clubs- whatever takes your fancy.
The most popular beaches are along the west and southern coasts. Patong’s 3-km golden-sand strip is the busiest and most developed beach, lined with coconut palm trees, offering shelter from the main road. There are plenty of water activities on offer and beach vendors peddling their goods to beachgoers.
Kata and Kata Noi are some of the best beaches on the west coast offering family-friendly paradise fun with good food and hotels. Karon Beach, located between Patong and Kata, is another one popular Phuket beach with great snorkelling spots and long sandy strip so it never feels crowded. Nearby you can find the lively Karon Centre for dining, shopping and nightlife, making the precinct ideal for evening strolls.
Bang Tao, is the longest beach in Phuket, and home to luxurious villas, large resorts and beach clubs. This beautiful powder-white stretch of sand offers the ultimate relaxation with world-class wellness spas available, many family-friendly things to do and water sports.
Surin Beach on the west coast has beautiful fine white sand and crystal clear water during dry season making it a fantastic snorkelling spot. This 800-metre sandy strip is one of the less developed, more natural beaches in Phuket, located a little further south of Bang Tao.
Rawai beach lies in the southernmost tip of the island and is the departure port for boats heading out to the surrounding islands. This is not a swimming or sunbathing spot, but a good tourist area to capture insight into local life. There’s a seafood market in the Sea Gypsy Village, lots of food stalls, street food and beachfront dining.
For those looking for a bit of Thai culture and a nice alternative to the beach, the capital city and cultural hub, Phuket Old Town is definitely worth a visit. Step back in time and enjoy the colourful Sino-Portuguese architecture of mansions and quaint shophouses, Buddhist and Taoist temples, museums, art galleries and cafés.
