Phuket

An island getaway for serenity & thrills

A haven with palm-fringed beaches and limestone cliffs, Phuket is as much an exciting destination for luxury-seeking travellers as it is for backpackers on a budget. For island-hoppers, Phuket is a dream, with each island offering a unique experience. It is also a massive attraction for divers and snorkellers who want to explore the spectacular world beneath the sea. But there is more to this island than the sun, sea and sand. The cultural heritage of Phuket is showcased in its historic mansions, Chinese cultural landmarks and shops done in characteristic Sino-Portuguese style.
