Located off the west coast in the azure waters of the Andaman Sea, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island. With rugged limestone cliffs, tropical rainforests, pristine white sandy beaches and colourful coral reefs, the island is the ideal place for relaxing, diving, snorkelling or even hiking. Inland are coconut, pineapple, cashew nut and rubber plantations, and in the coastal villages where old Chinese temples still abound, the local fishermen bring ashore their daily catches as they have done for centuries.
Our “Simply” itineraries are perfect add-ons to your holiday. Discuss options with our Asia Travel Experts.
Meet your guide on arrival, transfer and check-in to your hotel. During the drive your guide will provide an introduction to Phuket, answer any questions you have, and make arrangements for the following day. Enjoy free time for the remainder of the first day.
Located off the west coast of Thailand in the azure waters of the Andaman Sea, Phuket is Thailand’s largest island with an area of 810 square kilometres (312 square miles). The coastal scenery is magnificent, with tropical rainforests, steep rugged limestone cliffs, pristine white sandy beaches and colourful coral reefs. The island is the ideal place for relaxing, diving, snorkelling or even hiking. Inland are coconut, pineapple, cashew nut and rubber plantations, and in the coastal villages where old Chinese temples still abound, the local fishermen bring ashore their daily catches as they have done for centuries.
Phuket has beautiful beaches and an abundance of restaurants, bars and shopping all within walking distance or a cheap taxi ride of your accommodation. Whatever your interests, be sure to ask your guide for personal recommendations.
The twin Phi Phi Islands of Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Le lie approximately 48 kilometres (30 miles) from Phuket. The Phi Phi Islands are famed as having some of the best dive and snorkelling sites in Thailand.
Phi Phi Don, the larger island, is inhabited by local villagers and is adorned with fine sandy beaches, crystal clear water and extraordinary marine life. It is an ideal place for swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, sunbathing and relaxation.
The smaller Phi Phi Le offers even more dramatic scenery with a number of small secret coves, rocky cliffs, caves and Maya Bay, the location of the movie "The Beach". Its most celebrated attraction is the immense Viking Cave, which has an abundance of stalactites and stalagmites. Valuable bird nests are collected in the cave and used to produce Rang Nok, which is believed to benefit people’s health. There are also ancient drawings of sailing crafts, which are still of unknown origin.
Spent the day cruising around these two superb islands, exploring the wonderful caves, swimming, snorkelling, enjoying lunch and relaxing on the white sandy beaches. Return to Phuket late in the afternoon.
Enjoy free time relaxing by the pool, getting a massage on the beach, or browsing the market shops.
On your last day enjoy free time until your departure transfer.
