Dubbed the "Pearl of the South," Thailand's largest and most visited island is one of the world's most famous dream destinations.
Even before you arrive on this stunning tropical island, you’ll see what all the fuss is about. Best advice is to see the downtown scene for what it is, get a few trinkets or souvenirs and head out to the real Phuket. The best way to do this is by a morning introduction tour, where an English-speaking guide will tell you all you need to know about your new surroundings.
After your introductory day out and about on the island, it’s time to get out there and get active! Elephant tours are a fun and distinctive way to see the jungle scenery, while the Phuket Safari Tour offers you a comprehensive look into regional landscapes and customs such as monkey-training, tree tapping, and Thai cooking lessons.
If yesterday's activities weren't enough of a water fill for you, you're in luck. Phuket is surrounded by exquisite groups of islands.
