5 Reasons You Will Love Phuket – An Island of Many Attractions

The Thai island of Phuket attracts a myriad of holidaymakers; there are several reasons to fall in love with this destination, such as the wonderful food, fantastic beaches, natural beauty and more.


The amazing food

There is no doubt that Thai food ranks amongst the most flavoursome, aromatic and delectable kinds of cuisine in the world. In Phuket, you will encounter an array of food providers serving up genuine Thai dishes; with spiced noodle dishes, plates of grilled meat with rice, curries flavoured with coconut, zesty soups and much more available, food lovers will have a host of options to savour. Make sure to try out the well-reputed restaurants and vendors of street food located at Phuket Town, where you will find dishes that will tantalise your taste buds.


The fantastic beaches

Phuket's amazing beaches often make tourists visit the island again and again. Here, you will find expansive stretches of inviting white sands that border gleaming clear waters with rough karst rock formations rising conspicuously into the skies. Patong Beach located on the island's west coast offers a vibrant atmosphere with beach bars and resorts aimed at revellers to be found. On the other hand, seekers of tranquillity should make their way farther south. Another great option would be Layan Beach on the west coast which offers an idyllic stretch of shore. An accommodation choice to consider near this beach would be Anantara Layan Phuket Resort where you may stay at a luxury Phuket pool villa.


The gleaming waters

The waters surrounding Phuket have the reputation of ranking amongst the loveliest and clearest to be found in the entirety of Southeast Asia. Whilst these waters, as you might expect, will be great for swimming, they will also provide fantastic opportunities for amazing Instagram-worthy photographs. The pleasantly warm temperature will mean that the waters will be inviting for swimmers at virtually all times of the day. You can also engage in water sports such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, diving and fishing. You may find that you would be unwilling to depart from the lovely waves of Phuket!


The stunning natural beauty

The blue waters, beaches and karst rock formations that you are very likely to see whilst staying in Phuket will surely be stunning; however, if you happen to be a nature lover who desires to delve deeper into the island's natural treasures, you may make your way inland. In the island's interior, you will encounter additional spectacular natural scenery in the form of flourishing verdant rainforests offering hiking opportunities, mountains with stunning views and picturesque waterfalls where you may take a dip. You could also visit the Sirinat National Park, a nature sanctuary where you may observe various wildlife including everything from turtles to birds.


The opportunities for adventure

Thrill seekers will be in their element in Phuket as the island is one of Thailand's adventure hubs. Both scuba diving and snorkelling will be great options here due to the outstanding visibility offered by the clear waters, while kayaking is great to try as well. If you happen to be an adrenaline-junkie, you will find plenty to look forward to; you will have the chance to engage in activities like white water rafting, quad biking and zip-lining in Phuket. With so many adventure options available, you are sure to find something that takes your fancy.
