1 New Beach for Every Day

What is the biggest reason to travel to Phuket? That’s easy to answer: The beaches of Thailand’s biggest island. Phuket’s beaches truly are remarkable, they are long and wide, with beautiful white sand. And there are many of them.

Hardly any other travel destination in the world has as many stunning beaches side by side. The entire western coast of the 50-kilometer-long island is a majestic row of long sandy beaches. You could easily go to a new beach for every day of your two-week trip.

3 Phuket’s Blockbuster Magic

Phuket lies next to Thailand’s most gorgeous sceneries. We could even call them blockbuster landscapes: you can do a day trip to Ko Phi Phi Island of The Beach movie fame and Phang-Nga Bay, whose sceneries become famous from the classic James Bond movie Man with the Golden Gun.
