- Relax On the Mesmerizing Island Of Phuket
The first thing that you should know about Phuket is that the ‘h’ is silent. Although an island, it is so big that it doesn’t really feel like one. Of course, the beaches are still the primary attraction here but there is now so much more to enjoy. From luxurious spas to all-night beach parties, you will never be starved for entertainment options. You can delight in the artsy Phuket Town or simply take a laidback attitude at Rawai. For enjoying the beauty of nature there is the Khao Phra Thaew reserve and Sirinat National Park.
Phang Nga Bay
Imagine sheer cliffs rising gloriously out of emerald waters and you can get a glimpse of what this bay is like. It is unbelievably beautiful and those cliffs are the distinctive features of the bay.
The Big Buddha
Visible from most of the island, the Big Buddha is a massive 45m-high white statue of the Buddha. Sitting grandly on the top of the Nakkerd Hills, the Buddha commands the most awesome viewpoint in Phuket. The prayer flags and the melodious bells ring with the wind lending a pulsating energy around the place.
The Viewpoints of Phuket
If you are in Phuket to enjoy the views, you are not going to be disappointed. Promthep is the popular choice where you get views that stretch to Phi Phi Island but you can also head over to Three Beaches for a lovely view of the sunset.
In Phuket, you should try out snorkeling or diving for a glimpse into marine life. The nightlife here is legendary and something to definitely check out.
