Phuket: a bright palette of Asian colours

Phuket is one of the best places for tourists in Thailand. There is everything for lovers of beach holidays: a wide sandy coastal strip, hotels and restaurants of various price categories.

Phuket attracts lovers of everything new and unexplored. The region boasts unique nature and a sea coast. The authorities are aiming at developing tourism and expanding what's on offer in this sector: the number of hotels is steadily growing, the territories on the map, previously occupied for mining, are being re-cultivated and turned into first-class golf courses. Aqua-tourism has developed in the coastal zone and on the nearest islands. In addition to beach recreation, there are a number of places of interest. Popular places for visiting visitors are museums: mining, sea shells and Talang. Find them with the help of the city guide.

Phuket is an island that is connected to the mainland by three bridges, so road transport is really developed here. Regular buses operate both within the city and on suburban routes. If you want, you can use the services of the local equivalent of a tuk-tuk. The taxi service, based on the European model with meters, is poorly developed.
