A Feast of Holiday Surprises

Thailand’s top beach resort island, Phuket, known as the ‘Pearl of the South’, offers 40 kilometres of white powdery beaches and many other attractions.

Patong Beach is Phuket’s most developed, with restaurants and activities to enjoy. For a quieter and more relaxed beachside escape, try the idyllic locales of Kata, Karon and Surin. Water-lovers will be in heaven in Phuket, with the surrounding reefs, jungle paths and small slices of rainforests.

Phuket is also an ideal base for exploring the Andaman region: take a boat trip around Phang Nga Bay, visit Phi Phi Island, and the Similans, considered to be among the top 10 dive sites in the world.
