Holidays to Phuket

When you think of holidays in Phuket you wouldn't be wrong to envision stunning beaches, sparkling blue ocean and picturesque natural beauty. But it's the unexpected treasures that will surprise and delight you.

It's all about contrasts on holidays in Phuket - from the charm of the old towns cobbled streets to the flamboyance of Patong's pulsating nightlife and the cooling drop pools of Kathu Waterfall. You'll be astounded by the wide range of things to do. Book an experience and visit majestic Phang Nga Bay, the stilted fishing village of Koh Panyee and the Phi Phi Islands. Maya Bay and James Bond Island certainly live up to their superstar status. The beaches of Khao Lak and the Similan Islands won't disappoint either. You don't have to look far to find energetic nightlife and incredible shopping but you'll also notice a deeply spiritual current that runs throughout, with shrines that adorn every corner and sacred temples that tell the colourful tales of Buddha's life.
