Situated right in the heart of the Andaman Sea, Phuket continues to set itself apart with its unmistakable natural views and an endless amount of activities to enjoy.
An introduction to the world’s most exquisite tropical getaway
Often regarded as the epitome of what comes to mind when the term “luxury tropical beach destination” is mentioned, Phuket combines crystal-clear aquamarine waters, soft sands, and year-round sunshine unlike any other.
As opposed to other tourist destinations in the world, this island province prides itself on providing an unforgettable seaside experience to travelers and locals alike. Millions of tourists, as a matter of fact, come to the destination every year in search of a one-of-a-kind paradise experience, only to find out that they never want to leave just after a few days.
Beyond being the best spot in the world for anyone seeking much-needed R&R, there’s one aspect of this island destination many overlook: There’s much more to the island than the fantastic beaches on its shores.
Other than just hitting the beach, here are three aspects of Phuket that are worth spending on for your next trip:
1. The unique history of Old Phuket Town
When it comes to stories, fables, and epics that span across centuries of history, there’s no denying that Old Phuket Town is chock-full of them.
Beyond its breathtaking natural sights, the province boasts a history rich with stories and testaments to Sino-Colonial architecture. As soon as you step right into the area, you’re bound to be amazed at all the 19th and 20th-century Sino-Portuguese structures that populate the entirety of Old Phuket Town. Additionally, what makes the storied structures in the area so special is that they’ve also been repurposed to become house shops, boutiques, and cafes without losing their original looks!
2. Natural retreats that have nothing to do with the sand, sea, and sun
While most people expect to experience the entirety of what Phuket has to offer by lounging around on the beach, the truth is that there is more adventure in the heart of the island. In the northern part of the island, you can expect a world away from the beach life in destinations, such as the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. If you’re looking to get away from the clamor of the beach and go on an adventure unlike any other, feel free to head up north and experience all the best waterfalls, walking trails, and virgin rain forests in the world!
3. Culinary delights
Aside from its beaches and top-notch hospitality, Phuket is also known for its cuisine. From savory dishes like Moo Hong and Khanom Jeen to Apong, the island is packed with many culinary delights that can’t be found anywhere else on the island. Aside from unique delights and delicacies, however, you can also experience the staples of Thai cuisine as well from Phuket’s finest dining establishments, such as Diamond Cliff Phuket’s Thai Orchid Restaurant!
Aside from being a picture-perfect tropical getaway, Phuket holds a distinct amount of character and uniqueness that easily sets itself apart from other destinations in the world. If you’re looking for a destination that combines breathtaking sights, unforgettable experiences, and world-class attractions, then Phuket is definitely the place to be!
