The joys of a Phuket holiday
If you’re thinking about a Phuket holiday, you’ll no doubt be wondering why you ought to choose Phuket over some of Thailand’s other island and beach destinations. Given the choice, we’d go for a Phuket holiday over a trip to Koh Samui, Koh Pha-ngan or any of the other nearby islands.
For a start, Phuket is developed enough that it has all the mod cons you could need, should you want them. You can find hidden-away spots, but you know that if you want to go to the mall or you need a hospital or whatever, it’s there for you.
Furthermore, no Phuket holiday would be complete without exploring the beaches and islands, which are, in our opinion, as good as, if not better than, any you would be able to find at Koh Samui, Koh Pha-ngan, Hua Hin, Pattaya and so on. The trick is just in choosing where to go.
Phuket holidays aren’t all that expensive. If you’re shrewd with money, you can have a great holiday and you’ll find that the prices in Phuket are very reasonable.
If you’re into activities, you’ll find them in abundance on your Phuket holiday. Being such a large island, there is access to everything, including bungee jumping, elephant trekking, go karting, kite surfing, wake boarding and so on.
Also, Phuket has links to the rest of Thailand and beyond. Should you wish to venture out somewhere else, trips can be arranged in a matter of minutes, either by bus, boat or plane.
