With miles of lovely beach and a hot climate, Phuket now earns most of its income from tourism, although in years past it earned a place in many ships’ logs as part of a ... Read more

There are many beautiful beaches in Phuket and next month is very hot hear in Thailand. So travel to the beach is perfect! If you want to stay on the budget you should live in the city of Phuket. But if you wanna spend some money to stay on 4 stars hotel I recommend Kantary bay hotel at Cape Panwa.

Phuket is just too crazy crowded for me. If I am going to a remote tropical island I don't want to be surrounded (and annoyed by) all night parties and filth everywhere. There are some nice resorts though and you can get on a speed boat and escape for a while. But there is seemingly little left of any authentic culture.

This place should be on the MUST AVOID AT ANY COST if you are traveling around new years. Full of tourist traps and very hard to not fall into those if this is your first time. The beaches are clean and nice but the hoards of tourists here can totally spoilt the experience. In December it felt like I was in Russia/Sweden with billboards in Russian for all shops and restaurants. Maybe at a different time , the experience would be a lot different.

I liked Phuket very much. Sea, sand, palms, massage, coctails are everything you can dream about while relaxing.


Spent only 4 days during last week of April. So did not get to do a lot of things. Very touristy and lots of attractions and activities for all age groups. Visiting Wat Chalong and Phuket town is a must do for anyone visiting this place


I had heard great things about Phuket, but it was the ugliest and worst place I have ever been to. I rent a car and drove the whole area staying several different hotels. I question myself, "did i go to a different Phuket ? It was not worth to visit. I like Krabi better.
