Phuket has grown into one of the leading holiday destinations in Southeast Asia and is one of the busiest travel destinations in Thailand. It has replaced Bali as the most popular holiday island in the region.

What makes the island of Phuket such a great destination?

Phuket is first and foremost a cheap holiday destination. Phuket hotels, resorts and guest houses are available in all price categories, and ratings and prices are significantly cheaper than what one would encounter in Europe or America.

Eating in restaurants or buying drinks in bars or clubs on Phuket is also cheaper than what most tourists are used to paying back in their home countries.

Phuket beaches

The palm-fringed beaches of Phuket Island are, of course, world-famous for its crystal white sands and the clear waters of the Andaman Sea. Some of the best and most popular beaches found on Phuket Island are the beaches at Patong, Kamala, Karon, Kata and Nai Harn.

Phuket nightlife

Phuket nightlife is another reason why many tourists visit Phuket every year on vacation. Many tourists seem to come back every year especially for the nightlife and bars in Phuket.

Most of the nightlife in Phuket is located on Patong Beach along the famous Soi Bangla. A number of large clubs are located along Bangla Road in Patong, including the very popular Tiger Disco and the new Seduction Disco.

You can also find along Bangla Road and the many small streets leading into Soi Bangla, hundreds of beer bars. Each beer bar has a number of beautiful Thai ladies who work for those who are there to please the customers.

Phuket Shopping

Shopping in Phuket in the past was not one of the most interesting activities for tourists due to the lack of a large selection of shops and products. Most of the stores sold the same bespoke clothing, bootleg movies and software, and fake designer clothing.

Over the past few years, however, a number of major shopping malls have opened on Phuket, featuring renowned international retailers, unique local shops as well as international restaurant shops such as Outback Steakhouse and Burger King.

If you are visiting Phuket on holiday, be sure to visit the brand new Phuket Junkceylon Mall in Patong or the Central Carnival Mall along the Phuket by-pass road. https://www.amarnathji.com/%e0%b9%81%e0%b8%ab%e0%b8%a5%e0%b9%88%e0%b8%87...
