Among the first areas in Thailand to host resorts, Phuket offers a lot to those who love to venture off the beaten path.
Numerous cultural attractions and distinctive character make it a very popular destination. The cuisine, for example, is spicier than the rest of the country, but don't despair if strong flavors aren't your thing: the island knows how to welcome visitors from all over the world, satisfying every need.
When it comes to natural beauty, Phuket also boasts an astonishing variety: in the south you will find impressive limestone rock formations that rise out of the water, while in the north you can venture into the jungle to enjoy stunning views and spot wildlife.
In addition, it is an excellent starting point to reach other islands and discover the most authentic and traditional Thailand, for example by visiting the wonderful Ao Phang Nga bay on the island of Koh Yao Noi. And after so many adventures, you will be happy to return to the comforts of your accommodation.
The accommodation facilities are the most varied, from extremely cheap huts to spartan apartments and large mid-range hotels. If you are looking for something more surprising, opt for a stay in a villa: many are located right on the beach or have a private swimming pool and are often real oases of tranquility, far from the places of entertainment such as Patong and Kata.
However, there are also great options in more central areas, with clean, spacious and functional accommodations that are the ideal base for exploring the island. A common element of all kinds and categories is the traditional Thai hospitality known throughout the world, which reserves a warm welcome to every traveler.
