As the largest and most populous island in the country, Koh Samui is breathtakingly beautiful. Moreover, there is a lot to do in Phuket. Come for barefoot luxury, forest walks, temples, and sunset views from your private plunge pool with a cocktail in hand.


The atmosphere in Phuket

Phuket is a wonderful destination for lone travellers, as it is friendly and safe, and it offers a wide range of accommodations. Getting to know new individuals is a breeze. From Thai cooking workshops to massages, local companies offer a wide range of options for visitors to Thailand. Kata, Karon, and Patong are some of the island's most popular beach towns, featuring a variety of bars and restaurants catering to tourists.

A lone traveller's guide to Phuket, Thailand

Whether you're visiting Thailand for a longer period of time or just a few days, Phuket is a fantastic beachside stopover. Either way, make a base in Phuket and go on day trips with other single travellers. A week is about right if you want to take your time and see everything that the island has to offer.


The best Phuket hotels

Phuket is a safe haven for lone travellers, thanks to the abundance of hostels, boutiques, and luxury spa resorts. More than anything, it's about locating the right beach or community. Patong is a popular destination for partygoers because it is boisterous and ribald, with bars and clubs lining the beach. Karon and Kata are less crowded, but there is still enough of nightlife and a wide range of lodging options for all budgets.


Take a tour of a floating community

In the waters near Phuket, there are numerous floating towns, where fisherman continue to live as they have done for years. When you go on a tour to Bang Rong, you'll get to spend time with the locals, learn how to chop coconuts, make batik, and milk rubber, as well as observe wildlife in the mangrove forests and share a home-cooked lunch with a community member's family.


Finding your way around Phuket on your own

You'll need a vehicle of your own if you want to get off the usual path. Two wheels are worth four in Phuket, where mud roads are commonplace. The cost of renting a motor-scooter is less than the cost of a budget dinner. Instead of being penalized, the agency will appreciate a snapshot of any damage to the bike that has been done before you leave and share it with you.


Safe and nice travels in Phuket

Phuket is considered safe in the context of Southeast Asia. The standard travel precautions should still be taken. In the markets, be on the lookout for pickpockets. Use more sunblock than you think you'll need, especially on bike rides and walks, because traffic in Thailand is notoriously bad. In general, women traveling alone prefer to stay near the main beaches because they're close to the sand and have well-lit streets nearby.
