Phuket is the premier beach holiday destination in Asia attracting around 5-million visitors a year. It is an island of stunning natural beauty with beaches that are world renowned. The numerous beaches and nearby islands provide something for everyone. There is the buzz and nightlife of Patong Beach, the family-friendly fun of Karon and Kata Beaches or you can get away from it all at one of the many quieter beaches.

Phuket has much more to offer than just beaches. The people are warm and friendly, the culture is rich and the food is great. There is fantastic shopping and many beautiful temples. There is a lively nightlife scene and of course we cannot ignore the colourful girly bar scene in Patong. There are also many great activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling and water sports.
