Phuket

Thailand's most popular island, Phuket is surrounded by the pristine waters of the Andaman Sea. Much of its appeal is the palm-fringed, white sandy beaches, secluded coves and long sweeping bays. Phuket's best beaches are located on the west coast with Patong, Karon and Kata being the most popular. Patong is the livelier resort, with an abundance of bars and non-stop entertainment. Those looking for a more relaxed atmosphere can head for the seclusion and tranquil beach of Mai Khao or the exclusive Bang Tao Bay for a round of golf.
