Phuket is Thailand’s original recipe for tailor-made fun in the sun where the island’s affinity for luxury far outshines its other stereotypes.
Jet-setters breeze through in droves, getting pummeled at classy spa sessions, sipping sundowners on rented yachts or just chilling at swish nightspots. With high-end dining, luxury shopping, deep-sea diving, white sandy beaches, friendly locals and some of Thailand’s best resorts at your fingertips, you might be tempted to stay awhile. Familiarize yourself with the island’s natural beauty as you drive along the Patong, Karon, Kata and Rawai beaches, each offering a different type of holiday experience. Photo opportunities abound at the Karon viewpoint and cultural sights such as the Buddhist Temple of Wat Chalong.The nearby Phi Phi Islands are surely one of the world’s wonders: an archipelago of lush, tropical isles set in a turquoise sea. On a day trip from Phuket, adventure seekers can explore this top snorkeling spot with its spectacular underwater scenery and white, sandy beaches. Experience the ultimate extravaganza at the Simon Cabaret Show or spend an evening at one of the best shows in Thailand; Siam Niramit – a magnificent stage production that features incredible stage sets with vibrant depictions of Thailand’s Arts and Cultural Heritage.
Bangkok, meaning the ‘city of angels’, is often described as crowded and noisy, yet the city is full of culture, historic sites and beautifully authentic food.
Travelling to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is like throwing yourself into a mad melee of a metropolis, decadent and often squalid, but extremely traveller-friendly. Locals welcome those who holiday in Bangkok with wide smiles and amid all the chaos and congestion there are hidden gems to discover. Bangkok is also the gateway to Thailand’s legendary beach resorts and is ideal for those travelling on a budget.
