About Phuket

Surrounded by warm, tropical waters, the island of Phuket is a paradise for water sports’ lovers. The area is well known to scuba enthusiasts, and other water activities such as kayaking and kite surfing are growing in popularity.

The island’s capital, Phuket town, is where you can go shopping, view the Sino-Portuguese architecture from the old tin mining days and get a more authentic experience of a Thai town. Alternatively, explore the many small islands around Phuket, visiting Phang Nga Bay or explore the interior of the island. There are water sports, golf, Thai boxing, temples, shows, events and much, much more. In short, you should never be bored in Phuket.

Phuket has an excellent infrastructure, and there are many up-market hotels, major shopping malls and cinemas. Find all the amenities any visitor could want. There are hundreds of beaches available within an hour’s cruise, so having boat here is an immense asset to enjoy the surroundings.
