Phuket is the largest island in Thailand, so it is the perfect getaway for everyone because it has so much to see and do, and because of this, the island is always busy with tourists.

Weather

Although Phuket is a destination to travel all year round, the best time to travel is between December to March when there is less rain. However, the hottest in March and the coolest month is September (which is also lovely because of fewer crowds are lower humidity).

Tipping in Phuket

Tipping isn’t expected in Thailand, and there is no mandatory requirement; however, small gratuities for excellent service are very much appreciated.

Five Reasons to visit Phuket

1 The food 

Thai dishes are one of the most recognised cuisines around the world now. Many countries offer great Thai restaurants, but nothing beats the local dishes here in Phuket. Whether it is the fantastic street food or a well-recognised restaurant, Phuket has it all.

2 The Island hopping and pristine beaches

We have all seen Instagram photos of beautiful people on yachts or snorkelling in crystal-clear water. As much as it pains me to say it, they aren’t wrong! These pictures do not lie! However, if you had asked me about the beaches a few years ago, I wouldn’t have had the same answer. Why? Because Thailand’s new community-based tourism is all about preserving the culture and country’s surroundings by protecting beaches and other beautiful sacred places around the country.

3 Phuket old town

Old Phuket town is often overlooked due to the number of water activities on Phuket island. Instead, most people focus on areas like Patong Beach and the nightlife on Bangla road. But they overlook a beautiful city with gorgeous shophouses and lots of history. Oh, and of course, fantastic food and boutique shops.

    So 17 years ago, my husband and I set off with our little family in tow, embarking on a short-term assignment in Taiwan. Although without any knowledge of expat life or the Taiwanese culture, we took the chance and decided this would be an exciting little adventure; little did we know it changed the direction of our lives forever.
