Phuket is the largest island in Thailand. At 540 square kilometers, it is about the same size as Singapore. Just over an hour by air from Bangkok and with daily connections to most major Asian airports, Phuket is ideally situated for a short break or a relaxing vacation.
An international destination blessed with white-powdered, palm-fringed virgin beaches, turquoise waters and surrounded by island-dotted seas, Phuket is visited every year by more than two millions of visitors. The best-known beaches are Patong, Kata, Karon and Bang Tao.
The island features sincerely hospitable people, superb seafood, lovely waterfalls carved into magnificent mountains with delightful turn of the century Indo-Portuguese-Chinese influenced architecture creating an enchanting harmonic ambiance, perfectly suited to total relaxation.
