Welcome to Phuket,Thailand
If you’ve seen the alluring beaches of Thailand in photos, most likely, it’s the beautiful islands of Phuket, the home of Thailand’s most famous beaches. This city, found in Southern Thailand, is best known for its white sand beaches, jungle-clad mountains, and amazing sights. This ideal vacation destination will entice you to explore more than just its picturesque islands, but also its famed cuisine and elephant sanctuaries.
For anyone who loves Phuket – it’s a magical island that instantly defies its stereotypes without making any fuss.
Thailand bursts with dreamy, laid-back, palm-filled islands washed by gentle turquoise waves, yes – but Phuket combines all that tropical-paradise allure with the lively buzz, creative vibe and thrilling food scene of a dynamic urban hub.
Favor fabulous Phuket
Let’s start with those fabulous flour-soft, salt-white beaches. Favourites are in the north of the island, including sparkling Hat Surin, five-mile (8km)-long Ao Bang Thao and wilder Hat Layan. Phuket’s three northwesternmost strands are a treat too: Hat Nai Yang, Hat Mai Khao and Hat Nai Thon all sit within the protected Sirinat National Park and have a blissfully relaxed, nature-first feel. On the island’s southern tip, mellow Rawai is another beachy beauty I seek out on every visit; it’s known for its rustic seafood restaurants, buzzing kitesurfing scene and powdery strands like Hat Nai Han. Blazing sunsets draw crowds to dramatic Laem Phromthep here, and there’s almost a mystical feel as everyone simultaneously gazes out as the sun drops into the jade-colored Andaman Sea.
Phuket’s vibrant food scene
Phuket also has one of Thailand’s most irresistible food scenes, born from the mingling of Southeast Asian and Chinese cultures over the centuries (known here as Baba culture). The arty island capital Phuket Town is the culinary epicenter. A tin-mining hub in the 19th and 20th centuries, today now filled with candy-colored Sino-Portuguese buildings, restored hôrng tăa·ou (shophouses) and hidden shrines that burst into life for the September/October Vegetarian Festival. I like popping into the Lock Tien food court, where Phuketian classics like mèe hokkien (Hokkien noodles) and just-made spring rolls are served at plastic tables, or grabbing flaky roti topped with a fried egg at the always-popular Thai-Muslim breakfast spots on Thalang Rd. Long-running Mee Ton Poe is locally loved for its noodle dishes; Kopitiam does Phuket-style Thai classics; and Raya prepares its popular coconut-crab curry in a tile-covered Sino-Portuguese house.
On the fine-dining side, try the contemporary-Sardinian delights dreamt up by superstar chef Alessandro Frau at Acqua; the elevated Phuketian flavors of Patong’s gorgeous, garden-laced Ta Khai; Cherngtalay’s elegant Suay for chef Noi Tammasak’s arty twist on Thai cuisine; or Michelin-starred PRU in northern Phuket. There’s plenty to enjoy on the local coffee scene, too, with hipster-style hangouts such as Phuket Town’s The Shelter Coffee and Bookhemian easily rivaling Chiang Mai’s famously cool cafe culture.
Whether you fancy a beachfront yoga class, heading out on a diving trip, visiting Buddhist temples (such as 150-year-old Wat Chalong) or perhaps tackling muay thai, Phuket’s activity calendar has it, and all kinds of travelers can expect a warm welcome here.
And nowhere does seductive beach hotels (or heavenly spas) like Phuket. There are also fun, sociable hostels and design-forward boutique hotels along with mellow beachside guesthouses in places like west-coast Kamala.
Early-morning stroll through Phuket Town, a plastic plate of steaming noodles arriving at a toes-in-the-sand beach shack, a soul-stirring swim in turquoise waves backed by rippling casuarinas. This is what Phuket is all about. No wonder it’s drawn people from all over the world for centuries.
