6 Things You Need To Know About Phuket

  1. Islands around the island: When you think of Phuket, Leonardo Di Caprio’s Beach Movie would come to your eyes. Or a cute tiny island surrounded by white sand and tall green palm trees. You have take a tour and get on a speed boat for an hour to reach those paradise islands. The most famous ones are Phi Phi and James Bond Islands. Those islands are not very quiet and peaceful. Everyday thousands of people visit them. But still breathtakingly beautiful. Phuket is an island but it is connected to the main land with Sarasin Bridge.

  2. Phuket is a very big island: To reach from west to the east of the island or from north to south, it takes 1 hour by car. So you should be careful in picking which hotel you will be staying at. The most famous beach Patong and all other nicest beaches are located on the western side of the island. On the eastern part there are plenty of beautiful resorts. There are prebooked taxis on the island however they are not cheap. We decided to rent a car but keep in mind that the traffic runs from the left hand side in Thailand! And there are rush hours in Phuket.

In Bangla street you will see plenty of bars where ladyboys are inviting visitors for a drink in front of them. There is mixed crowd here, people are having fun till early hours of the next day. There are lots of beach clubs on the island and you can crash into one of the parties organized in those clubs.

  4. Low and High Tide: When you wake up a new day in Phuket, you will see beautiful blue sea in front of you. Then after lunch the see dissappears in just 15 minutes because of the low tide and you have to walk at least 500 meters away from the shore if you want to swim. Sunset is amazing during the low tide beause of the reflection of the last lights of the sun over the wet sand.

  5. Weather Forecast: Phuket has rainy season. So you need to be careful about when you should go there. The best season is between November and March. Other months would be wet for your dream sunny holiday. We were there in late March and the forecast was showing thunderstorms in all 4 days. However only one day there were light showers and the rest were all sunny.

  6. Prices: Thailand is considered a cheap country for holidays. However Phuket is not very cheap. Especailly in the resorts massages and food are a bit pricy. You need to go out from the resorts to have cheap food and drink and have reasonable massage. The tours to the islands are not that cheap if you dont make your booking in advance We didnnt make any research before and booked the tour from the hotel an paid 100 USD per person. So make sure you find a tour in advance.
