Exotic food. Exotic beaches. Exotic attractions. In Phuket, exotic is the name of the game. This idyllic seaside town in Thailand is a main draw for tourists, thanks to the paradise it offers. Even the Phuket hotels transport guests to a world very different from what they are used to. But, isn’t that the point of taking a true vacation?
While Phuket Town and the other areas of the city can get crowded and are more gritty, there is a world which awaits outside the main drag where people come face-to-face with sea life, pristine beaches and the jungle. It’s all there; you just have to know where to find it.
Not all beaches are created the same. Sadly, mass tourism to Phuket has made many beaches which were once gorgeous and peaceful into tourist traps. However, if you know where to look, you can find some perfect spots to unwind at some of the best beaches in Phuket.
