Overindulge On Life In Phuket

Fringed by some of Thailand’s best coastline and boasting the architecturally-arresting capital Phuket Town, Phuket is best known for its eternally popular party beach, Patong.

As famous for its nightlife as its soft sands stretching towards the Andaman Sea, Patong’s backstreets and sois are packed with popular clubs and bars, teeming with an array of international visitors.

If the party scene isn’t quite for you, Karon is quieter and draws a more relaxed beach-going crowd. However, there’s more to Phuket than just palm-lined beaches.

The island’s administrative centre, Phuket Town, features some of the country’s best examples of Sino-Portuguese architecture, as well as a plethora of picturesque temples.
