About Phuket

Surrounded by the sea, with a sense of fun and thrill in the air, Phuket is one of the most loved islands for people around the globe. It is undoubtedly the uncrowned king of all the islands in this world and is a popular tourist spot. The crystal clear water and the clear sand beaches that this island boasts of are too good to be true. Phuket is loaded with iconic attractions and a historical old town. One may never want to miss out on a beautiful all-in-one destination like Phuket where beaches and a wide range of enthralling activities keep anyone busy. If you want to hide away and relish private moments in a dinner cruise or perhaps soak in the natural healing experience at a spa center, Phuket does not disappoint you. Phuket is situated at approximately 890 km from Bangkok, off the west coast of Southern Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Spread over a terrain of hills of about 550 sq. km. and surrounded by many smaller islands, adding an additional 70 sq. km. in its total land area, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island. It is separated from the mainland by the Chong Pak Phra channel that is at its northernmost point with a causeway connecting the island to the mainland. With tourists and locals vying to be there for holidays and photoshoots, there is no reason Phuket is not on anyone's top pick list.
