Phuket Has Everything to Make Your Vacation In The Destination Enjoyable And Unforgettable

Jan 22, 2008
Phuket is a tropical paradise, located in the sparkling waters of the Andaman Sea, about 850 kilometers south of Bangkok, the capital city. Occupying an area of about 950 square kilometers, Phuket is the largest island in Thailand, with about the size of Singapore. Phuket is also credited to be the only island in the country with provincial status.

With incredible dazzling blue seas, enchanting tourist spots, awesome scenery, lush tropical rain forests, beautiful waterfalls, incredible views of sunset, stupendous coves and bays, exquisite Thai seafood cuisines, and services of warm amicable Thai people, Phuket has now become one of the most sought after tourist spots in South-East Asia.

The major draw of Phuket is unquestionably its stunning coastline, with soft sandy beaches with warm sparkling waters to rocky cliffs. Many of the top beaches in the area concentrated on the island's west coast. Just few among many of the gorgeous beaches in the area are Bang Tao Beach, Patong Beach, Kalim Beach, Kamala Beach, Kata Beach, Laem Singh Beach, Mai Kao Beach, Nai Thon Beach, Nui Beach, Pansea Beach, Rawai Beach, Surin Beach, and Ya Nui Beach. All of them are truly a haven for ocean as well as water sport lovers.

However, attractions in Phuket are beyond beaches as well as its activities. Phuket also has a number of other attractions to woo countless tourists visiting here year-round. Among which most famed are Thalang National Museum, which has on display exhibits related to the battle of Thalang as well as artifacts that throw light on the ancient history of the place.

The Heroine's Monument, which is built to commemorate two heroines under whose control the Burmese invaders were defeated during the Battle of Thalang; Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, with a plenty of butterflies as well as varied species of other insects; Phuket Zoo, which is a great place to view some rare types of animals.

Phuket Orchid Village and Thai Village, with an astounding variety of orchid flowers; Khao Rang, a low hill which provides incredible views of surroundings; Wat Phra Thong, whose prime attraction is an image of Lord Buddha that is half buried; Phromthep Cape, a great place to savor the beauty of sunset; and Wat Chalong, a highly revered temple enshrining statues of Buddhist monks such as Luang Pho Chaem and Luang Pho Chuang.

The growing number of tourists has led to a tremendous increase in number of accommodations options in Phuket. Depending upon the preferences, needs, and budget of vacationers, different types of accommodation choices are available in the place. The most preferred accommodation choice among the short stay vacationers are hotels and resorts. Mostly, these hotels are replete with top-end facilities such as stylishly appointed guest rooms, sumptuous dining facilities, state of the art fitness rooms, awesome spa centers offering a variety of massage and beauty treatments, and swimming pools.

Some excellent choices are also available for budget conscious travelers in the form of boutique hotels and bungalow type resorts. Al though they are inexpensive, these accommodation types render almost facilities that a luxurious option offers.

Despite any other choices, perhaps the best accommodation option is private rental villas. Villa vacation rentals are a great alternative over expensive hotel rooms. Further, they are an excellent option for long stays as well as for those seeking privacy and freedom. If you are a luxury lover, then go for villas that are complete with top end amenities such as spacious deluxe bedrooms, spacious living and dining areas, and fully equipped European style kitchen. There are also villas that are exclusively designed for people with vacationing with large family, and they mostly include five or six bedrooms. Above all, villa rentals are within walking distance from stunning beaches as well as some of the top attractions in the destination.

But, it is necessary to plan in advance in order to make your Phuket vacation enjoyable and unforgettable. Many of the villa and hotel providers in Phuket have their own sites on the web. Some of them even contain full features of a villa coupled with their pictures, pricing details, and features. This in turn enables a tourist to choose an accommodation option of your choice and make bookings online.
