Overview

Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand, located in the Andaman Sea, off southern Thailand. Some of the most spectacular beaches of Thailand are located here. The Rawai beach is a palm-fringed beach, best known for the natives called “Sea Gypsies” or moken. These nomadic sea farers are believed to be the first dwellers of the Andaman coastal regions of Thailand. They sell shell objects and sea food - fish, sea cucumbers, and squid.

The Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep)is the perfect spot to catch a magnificent view of the sun setting over the ocean, while Phuket town itself is beautiful and rich in antique architecture, great shopping opportunities and lots of delicious seafood.
