Dec 28th, 2006
Phuket is an island in the Andaman Sea of the Indian Ocean, South of Thailand. Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and enjoys great popularity as a travel destination dubbed ‘the Pearl of Andaman’. The island measures 21 km by 48 km at its widest.

The pristine green sea waters surrounding Phuket contain much varied marine life, and the town is notable for its Sino-Portuguese architecture. Phuket is a very attractive island for sightseeing, with lovely seashores and forested hillsides. Phuket is famous for its many nice beaches and most of its visitors spend their time on the beaches and in the bars. You can also use Phuket as a launch pad for expeditions to nearby destinations. Some of the most popular outings off Phuket are the splendid islands of Phi Phi, Similan, Surin, Racha and Coral.

SIDEBAR
Put off by media coverage depicting the area as a disaster zone, many have cancelled their plans to visit Phuket. Two years after the tsunami, all damage has basically been cleared or repaired and both ethically and financially, now is the best time to go. Many have taken the opportunity to refurbish or re-build completely, adding even more comfort and even better facilities. To celebrate their rebirth, a number of hotels are offering special deals with lots of value added extras to add an extra sparkle to your holiday
