Introduction to the island

Phuket is Thailand's largest island, with a total area of 543 sq km. This makes it approximately the same size as Singapore. Nearly 350,000 people live on the isle, which is situated in the Andaman Sea off the west coast of Thailand and linked to the mainland by two bridges.

The province has developed into a popular hotspot for all sorts of trips, from relaxing breaks on the beach and luxury getaways to hedonistic party holidays. Tourism is now one of the largest contributors to the local economy.

Much of central Phuket is mountainous, meaning the main visitor destinations and resorts are located along the coast.

Patong on the island's western seafront is the most popular location of all for holidaymakers, while less mainstream areas such as Chalong Bay and Cape Panwa in the south-east are also worth exploring.

Top five attractions

Phang Nga Bay is one of the most spectacular and naturally beautiful destinations in Phuket. It is situated on the north-east coast, between the island and the mainland provinces of Phang Nga and Krabi. The location is famous for its impressive limestone rock formations, caves, mangroves and James Bond Island, which featured in The Man With the Golden Gun.

A world away from the calm and serenity of Phang Nga Bay is Bangla Road, a busy thoroughfare in Patong that is likely to be the first port of call for young travelers planning to do some partying in Phuket. The road is full of clubs, bars, restaurants and a diverse array of colorful characters.

Another experience worth checking out on the island is FantaSea, which is described as a cultural theme park but does not feature any rides. The highlight of the attraction is a show with Thai dancing, a cast of elephants, light and sound effects and a full-scale replica of a Khmer temple.

In addition to its beaches and man-made attractions, Phuket is home to spiritual sites such as Wat Chalong, a temple that welcomes thousands of visitors every year. The building boasts several striking aspects, including pagodas and hundreds of tiny pieces of glass that glitter and shine in the sunlight.

Travelers interested in learning more about the culture and history of the destination can take a tour of Phuket Town's old quarter, which offers sights including a combination of Chinese and colonial architecture. Visitors can also see shrines and temples, stop off at cafes for a bite to eat, pick up souvenirs from local shops and explore public museums.
