Why Phuket Is the Place to Be
Phuket is often a place to behold. What was once exclusively a holiday destination is now a country visitors keep coming back to for culture, food, and living. Phuket has something in store for everyone. Whether you’re a fan of its hidden gems and stunning shorelines or love a little bit of seclusion, visiting Phuket should be something along your horizon.
Visit for the Beaches
From its northern tip to the south, Phuket is rife with long, sandy beaches and turquoise waters. There are so many to visit that you won’t remain one for more than a day at a time.
Visit for the Sailing Opportunities
Some of the most beautiful islands you’ll ever encounter exist in Phuket. However, you won’t know the entirety of their beauty unless you travel by boat, yacht, or catamaran. The Andaman sea is a perfectly picturesque sailing spot—you can either book a tour or even take a class.
Visit to Snorkel and Dive
As you can probably already tell, Phuket is a wonderland for lovers of the sea. Surrounded by coral reefs, caves, and a vibrant collection of sea life, you’ll have to experience them up close with an afternoon snorkeling session. Always observe its diversity with care. Whenever possible, dive with an expert who knows the ins and outs of every island.
Visit to Eat Delectable Thai Meals
The two things that catapult Phuket into the top ten global travel destinations are beaches and food. Whatever corner you turn, you’re likely to come across a place to try authentic Thai food. From street food to fine dining options, no two bowls of Tom Yum Goong or Tom Kha Kai will taste the same.
If your adventurous palette needs a little bit of a push, many Thai cafes will also serve international cuisine. When you’re ready to let your taste buds explore, Thai chefs are more than happy to explain what they’re putting on a plate.
Visit for the Spas
If you’re traipsing Phuket to cleanse the mind, body, and soul, don’t forget to visit one of its masterful spas. Here, you can experience a top-notch quality 60-minute massage for just 400 THB—that’s only $14! Thus, a genuine Thai massage isn’t going to break the bank—and you’ll love every minute of it.
Visit for the Stunning Sunsets
There is something mythical about sunsets in Phuket. Unlike watching a sunset over a city skyline, the hundreds of vantage points around this astonishing island provide views that you won’t experience anywhere else. Take the time to reflect on your day as you watch the sun disappear into the ocean. You won’t be hard-pressed to find the best spot.
Visit for the Bustling Lifestyle
Whether you love a healthy work-life balance or are already looking to retire, there are unlimited options for villas and townhouses across the country. If you’re lucky, you may even come across a beachfront property with to-die-for views.
Phuket is now one of the most sought-after locations for retirement—and for a good reason. Lush with tranquil mountainous landscapes and overflowing in culture, you’ll never run out of things to explore.
