Phuket travel guide

  • Phuket and its surrounding islands are some of the most beautiful and intriguing in the world. Tall outcrops of limestone rise vertically from the sea, and probably the most famous of these was used as a location for one of the James Bond films. It’s now known as “James Bond Island,” but its real name is Phang-nga. Set just off the west coast of Thailand, in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is about the same size as Singapore. The main town is Phuket Town, but many visitors stay in the beach resorts of Surin, Katu, Karon and the most famous (and busy), Patong. To get from Phuket to Patong takes about 20 minutes. Phuket Town has all the administration offices, bigger business hotels and department stores, whilst the beach resorts cater more to the holiday maker. However, excursions to the islands off Phuket go from the port at Phuket Town.

  • Gorgeous white beach, the bluest water you have seen and snorkeling is like swimming in an aquarium. This is the place to relax and enjoy yourself, either with scuba diving, spa centers or elephant trekking, there is always something to do!

  • The Thai kitchen in itself has become one of the country’s biggest exports and naturally nothing can compare to the genuine thing! Why not sample a bowl of Tom Yam Goong (spicy prawn soup), or perhaps the Gaeng Phed Yang (roast duck in red curry) is more to your liking? Many restaurants in the resort towns such as Patong, will have a mix of Thai and ‘western’ food. Chinese dishes are readily available at the many restaurants in the resorts and there are a fair number of Indian and Arabic places catering to those particular types of cuisine.

    The Royal Kitchen

    Claimed to be one of the most romantic restaurants in Patong. The restaurant at The Royal Paradise Hotel & Spa offers a variety of flavours from all over the world. Choose between Thai, Chinese, Indian and Arabian cuisine.

    Silk Restaurant & Bar

    With views over the Kamala Bay you can sit at Silk Restaurant & Bar and enjoy traditional Thai food in a tranquil environment. The chef’s focus is the flavours and textures of local Thai food.

    Plum Restaurant

    It is hard to decide whether the delicious food or the amazing view is the best at Plum Restaurant. Either way, you will have a great Mediterranean dining experience here.

  • Equally, the bars of Patong run into the hundreds. The main bar areas are gathered around Bang La Square and Bang La Road. The road is traffic-free in the evening so you can wander along without the worries of the motorbikes. Off Bang La Road are some “Soi’, which are lanes, but again without traffic. In these Sois, such as Soi Eric, Soi Cayote, Soi Gonzo and Soi Easy there are even more bars. Names change rapidly, as do the owners and the staff, but to name a few anyway.

    Karon Sunshine Guesthouse, Bar & Restaurant

    Karon Sunshine is a chilled and relaxed place where you will meet people from all over the world. They claim to have the best Irish coffee in Thailand, so if you are a fan, go here and place your judgment.

    Seduction Nightclub

    You simply cannot miss this club in the middle of Bangla Road. The busiest club around and with DJ´s from around the world, this is a place that you have to visit if you like to dance the night away.
