About Phuket

This tropical paradise located on the south is the biggest island in Thailand. It has an area of 540 Sqm that is almost the same size as Singapore. Phuket is well-known among tourists due to its pristine white beaches, crystal clear water, and nearby exotic islands, crazy nightlife, and a full range of accommodation type from budget to super high-end. The island is huge enough to earn a status of a province. It has an international airport that has daily direct flights to Australia and neighbouring countries.

James Bond Island is a famous landmark in Phang Nga Bay. It first found its way onto the international tourist map through its starring role in the James Bond movie 'The Man with the Golden Gun'. A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water.

Phuket food is generally more spicy than in the rest of Thailand. Popular dishes are Tom Yum Koong (Spicy sour prawn soup), Tom Ka Kai (Chicken soup with coconut milk), Som Tam (Green papaya salad), Hor Mok (fish mousse), Kuay Tiew (Noodle soup), Pad Thai and more. If you can't eat spicy just say "Mai Pet" (not spicy). But best of all, Phuket is famous for its amazing seafood.

Phuket is 60% covered with forest, rubber and palm oil plantations. Phuket’s rubber output helps make Thailand the world’s largest producer of rubber.
