Phuket is known for lush rainforests as well as clear waters, and it is one of Thailand’s largest islands. There are 32 islands nearby and it is closest to Krabi. Phuket was one of the areas that was hit by the 2004 tsunami that destroyed several highly populated areas as well as killed more than 5000 people in Thailand alone. In the years since the tsunami, Phuket has recovered well enough and once more welcomes tourists, both local and international, with open arms. 

Phuket tours would be incomplete without enjoying some of the amazing water sports on offer. Every beach nearby, such as Patong, Karon, and Kata are renowned for different reasons. For instance, Patong is considered the worldwide party destination by those who are here to have a good time. Karon, on the other hand, is a good spot for a family vacation. While the Mai Khao beach has a waterpark that makes it a big part of Phuket tourism. 

Geography of Phuket 

Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and is in the southern part of the country. It is located in the Andaman sea and is a mountainous area. Phuket is approximately 844kms away from Bangkok and it takes at least 12 hours to travel by road.

The most popular spot in Phuket where most Phuket tours begin are Patong beach.
