Thailand’s largest island promises ocean bliss and wide beaches of indulgent opulence, with some of the country’s most attractive, and dreamily dramatic scenery. Head for sumptuous spas and perfect beaches, or explore the streets of busy Phuket Town, which hum with markets, lively celebrations and an endless chorus of whirring scooters. Phang Nga Bay National Park is a nearby treasure - a remarkable landscape of towering limestone karst. The iconic rock formations are breathlessly beautiful, encased by theatrical inlets and incredible greenery-clad rock formations.
Heavenly beaches - where the sun dips to paint vibrant pink and red streaks across the skies - offer intense relaxation, and you can indulge in rejuvenating treatments or take it slow to enjoy cocktails and glorious sea views while swinging in a hammock. Wander beaches where the only sounds are the rustle of folding waves, and the gentle crunch of footprints in the sand. Watersport lovers can rip across the waves, or glide through the air while taking part in the various adrenaline-pumping activities on offer. Speedboat tours give you the chance to feel the salty whip of the air in your hair, as you whizz between secluded islands, and visit authentic stilted villages, teetering out over the beautiful waters. Tuck into a delicious fusion of Thai food - think crab curry and tom yum goong’s sweet and sour prawns – to ensure this sensory journey delights your taste buds too. Lavish temples, Chinese shrines and giant Buddha statues add another layer of cultural depth.
