Why go to Phuket

A vivid mix of golden beaches and lush rainforest add to the cultural gems and lively nightlife Phuket holidays are so well known for. Breaks on this heavenly island off southwest Thailand cater to every holiday style, whether you’re after a cheap hostel by the beach or seeking a sophisticated, romantic getaway.

Phuket’s pristine beaches are world-renowned; along the island’s western and southern coasts, you’ll find strips of palm tree-lined sand near classy resorts, nightlife hubs or wild jungle. Whichever beach you choose, the sand will be soft, white and lapped by the alluring green Andaman Sea.

Speaking of the dazzling waters, strap on a snorkel and dive in to discover the surrounding underwater world. Or, take a daytrip to experience the aquatic action. Neighbouring island Ko Phi Phi and the protected Similan Islands National Park are scuba diving heaven with colourful coral reefs and rocky gorges to explore.

It’s worth tearing yourself away from the beach (as hard as that might be to believe from the comfort of a sun lounger), to experience Phuket’s unique culture in historic Phuket Town. Explore its colonial architecture, mansions, museums, and impressive shrines to get an insight into the lives of the locals and the history of the island.

Another fundamental part of Phuket culture is its delicious food. Mixing traditional Thai flavours with Chinese and Malay influences, the cuisine is inventive, packed with flavour and, occasionally, eye-wateringly fiery. Local must-try dishes include mŏo hong (pork braised in pepper and garlic) and mèe gang pôo (curry with crab and noodles).

Once your stomach is full, Phuket’s nightlife awaits. The clubs in party hotspot Patong – especially full-on Bangla Road – are the island’s most famous, but for a more sedate way to pass the evening, order a sunset cocktail in a flash lounge or grab a beer from a beach bar and sit on the sand.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
