Phuket is Thailand’s largest island and second smallest province located in the Andaman sea off the coast of Southern Thailand. A hot and humid resort town, Phuket enjoys great popularity as a travel destination, and along with Bangkok, make up the top 2 Thai hotspots for many travellers and backpackers.
One of the most popular tourist areas of Phuket is Patong beach. The name translates to “the forest filled with banana leaves” in Thai, a lovely place to visit as most of Phuket’s nightlife and cheap shopping is located there. Take a walk down Bengala Road for a nightlife scene you only hear about in the pubs back home: ladyboys, Vegas-style shows, wide eyed-Westerners, world famous clubs, and traditional Thai massage parlours – Bengala Road may not be for the faint of heart – but it promises not to disappoint.
For the tamer side of this beautiful land, look no further than the undeveloped natural world that surrounds the city. Nature lovers will find Phuket a paradise, as there are many outdoor activities to take advantage of, as well as natural museums, parks, and trails. The beaches in Phuket are known for their relaxing qualities, which are best evidenced in the tranquillity of the quiet Bang Tao bay and the beautiful Karon beach. Elephant riding is also a must do in Phuket, as elephants in Thailand are well-trained by their mahouts, or elephant handlers. There is also a Gibbon Rehabilitation Project at the beautiful Bang Pae waterfall, where gibbons are being returned to their natural habitat. It is advised that tourists do not take photos with captive gibbons on the beaches or in the town, as those gibbons are often badly mistreated. For some other nice water features, try the trail that leads to the Tonsai waterfall in one of the last virgin rainforests in the region.
