As Thailand’s largest island, you can rest assured Phuket’s got more than elephants in its trunk.
First off, it’s home to Thailand’s most popular beaches, renowned for sparkling sands, clear water and stunning views of the Andaman Sea. It’s a must-visit for deep sea divers and shallow sea snorkelers.
Phuket town boasts Chinese shrines, an upside down house, a museum devoted to art that ‘deceives the eye’, plus lots of arcades. Don’t miss the Buddhist Amulet Market or the Khao Rang Viewpoint.
Oh, and let’s not forget the food. Phuket’s stand-out culinary delights include mèe pad hokkien (stir-fried noodles served in broth) and mèe gaang pôo (crab meat curry served with noodles).
