Phuket is the first place one thinks of when planning a fun beach holiday in South Asia, and if you need reasons to make up your mind, read on.
Phang Nga Bay
Known as the James Bond island, the Phang Nga Bay is a gorgeous beach with intimidating rock formations that make the scenery just a bit special. There are various fishing villages close to the bay, and if you are staying at Anantara Layan Phuket Resort or one of the other luxury hotels in Phuket, getting to this beach will be no hassle at all.
Old Phuket Town
Take a leisurely walk around Old Phuket Town to take in the local culture. While you do, you will be able to notice the unique blend of colonial and Chinese architecture in this part of Phuket. Being the biggest town in Phuket, you get your choice of cafes and shops here.
Boat to Phi Phi Islands
A trip to Phi Phi Islands on a boat or ferry will definitely be on every traveller’s list, and with good reason too. You can spend a full day island hopping on these waters, and take time to walk around and explore every one of them while you feel like you are on the show Lost.
Though Phuket is a tourist hotspot, it has its share of historic and religious temples you might want to take a look at. These places will make you feel like you went back in time, and offer a vibe of peace and tranquillity.
