Excited to go on your next Phuket holiday adventure? Read this simple guide to know everything about this stunning beach destination including the best beaches, restaurants and pleasant surprises to expect.
Things to Expect
Phuket is home to lush greenery, mesmeric landscapes, verdant hills, pristine sandy beaches and heavenly accommodation hotspots. Whether you want to visit the Buddhist temples, recline by the sandy beaches or take a stroll passing the lively night markets of Phuket street, there are plenty of things you can do in this charming resort town to keep you amused.
Whilst almost all the beaches in Phuket are breathtakingly beautiful, certain beaches on the island tend to get overly crowded. For instance, Patang beach and Kata beach are two beaches on the island that will make you feel like you are being suffocated among swarms of people. On the other hand, beaches like Banana beach and Bang Tao beach remain relatively serene and calm.
Best Cafes and Restaurants
Whether you are someone with a special diet, a vegetarian or simply a foodie who wants to try scrumptious local cuisine, cafes and restaurants on this scenic island are bound to tantalize your taste buds with a host of flavours. Interestingly, Phuket resorts like the lavish Anantara Mai Khao Phuket villas are not only located within proximity to many of these restaurants but will also offer you an incredible culinary feast within the resort’s many in-house restaurants.
Tucked away on the west coast of Phuket, the Karon viewpoint is one of the most popular viewpoints in Phuket that let you gaze into three crescent-shaped bays: Kata Noi in the foreground, Kata and Karon in the distance. However, if you want to catch the charming sunset of the island, Windmill viewpoint might be an ideal choice.
