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, it’s 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.

Rawai beach lies in the southernmost tip of the island and is the departure port for boats heading out to the surrounding smaller islands.
