The Pleasures of Phuket

Guest Post by Hannah Copues

With tourists having greater demands and expectations when booking their dream holiday in the 21st century, it’s no wonder that travel companies are rushed off their feet sourcing exciting and tailor made holidays for challenging customers. But, can we really call ourselves challenging for wanting a holiday that meets our standards, caters for our preferences and is most importantly cost effective in this stressful economic slump? Nevertheless, Phuket seems to be fast developing as the perfect holiday getaway for a number of reasons. Short of cash and still looking to escape your dull, daily routine?

Known as the pearl of the Andaman, Phuket is the largest and most popular island in Thailand. From its tranquil broad bays of Kata, Kata Noi and Karon to its tropical inland forests, the island boasts a fantastic array of attractions. From the natural to the pre-natural, land based activities to fast pace water sport fun, you’ll always find yourself surrounded by something to see or do. With Phuket being full of superlatives, every person may have a tough choice in deciding how they choose to fill their days with so many options available to the colourful traveller.

Offering a vast selection of dining experiences, you could find yourself in a sophisticated and luxurious restaurant one night, eating traditional Thai cuisine in a bustling town market on another or enjoying a relaxing lunch snack in a picturesque pavement café. One of the many brilliant characteristics of Phuket is the reverence for eating, so you can enjoy delectable dishes, whether it be Western or Thai Cuisine, to your heart’s content, any time of the day.

Whilst Thailand is worldwide renowned for producing a range of fresh and mouth-watering dishes with unique flavours and fresh ingredients, the experience of eating out is probably going to be one of the most memorable experiences of your visit to this stunning tropical island. Brimming with atmosphere and oozing with charisma, whether you’re planning to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoying a night out, your delightful, action-packed or sight-seeing day will be perfectly topped off with affordable and astonishingly scrumptious food.

    Phuket FantaSea show was absolutely amazing. It is one of the best shows in Thailand! You shouldn’t miss it. Super highly recommend. However, do upgrade to seafood buffet if you want to have a much better dining experience. It’s a great place for family!
