Thailand’s most popular beach destination, no only for the spectacular scenery, stunning tropical sunsets and warm blue Andaman Sea, but also for the vibrant nightlife at Patong Beach. The island links to the mainland by two bridges, so it is possible to arrive either by air or car.
The epicenter of gay life is concentrated in Paradise Complex offering multiple options in guesthouses, go-go bars, discos, gay saunas, restaurants and bars. Beach hopping and indulging in cocktails in view of the sunset over the Andaman Sea is one of the most popular activities of visitors to Phuket.
Sample one of the many beach spots, including the most well known, Patong Beach, but Pansea, Surin, Kamala and Kata Beach offer stunning views, crystal-clear water and white sand. Try some of the outdoor beer bars, typical of Patong Beach, and do not miss the Jazz Champagne Sunday Brunch at Trisara Resort.
Rent a scooter and motor around the island like a local, but make sure to have a good medical insurance, since none of the providers will offer that locally.
