What is Phuket, Thailand Really Like?


During my 10 years living in Thailand, one of the places I have visited the most is Phuket. A large southern Thai island, Phuket is one of the country’s most-visited tourist spots. Why? Because it’s absolutely gorgeous.

Of course, for anyone who has never visited Phuket, the first question they will usually ask is “What is Phuket, Thailand really like?” It’s relaxing, beautiful, full of friendly people, great restaurants, cool cafes, nice independent shops and tons of things to do. Oh, and by the way, the name of the island is pronounced “Poo-ket” and not “Fucket”. 🙂

If you want to know what Phuket is really like, you can’t do much better than watching this beautiful 4-minute video lovingly put together by Best Destination. It shows you the beautiful beaches, the ocean, hotels, restaurants, nightlife, food and them myriad of  tourist attractions that make Phuket such a fabulous place to visit. What more could  you need to look at to figure out what Phuket, Thailand is really like?

Then, once you’ve watched it, the only thing you have left to do is to book your own holiday trip to Phuket. And that’s dead easy.
