Tucked away in the southern part of the land of smiles, the beautiful islands of Phuket can be found. With its  stunning clear body of waters and picture perfect sandy beaches one would definitely be mesmerized and left in awe with its breathtaking wonders and serene splendor.

 Without a doubt, Phuket has been regarded highly and celebrated as one of the world's finest, and most sought-after tropical oases. Beach lovers from around the globe would find its way just to take a glimpse of this captivating paradise and experience firsthand its infinite bliss. 

Must-See Phuket Attractions:

1. The Enchanting Islands of Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Le 
Quoted as the ultimate tropical getaway!
Be enthralled with its majestic rock formations rising proudly above the turquoise-colored seawater and pristine sandy beaches.  These beauteous islands are easily accessible from Phuket by approximately an hour via speed boat or ferryboat cruise.

2. Snorkeling and Diving Adventures
The aquamarine seawater that surrounds the islands of Phuket offers an excellent opportunity for fun-filled snorkeling and diving activities. Underneath the vivid waters are teeming with colorful tropical fishes and  brilliant marine life! So take a plunge outside the monsoon season, practically between November-April when the sea is perfectly calm and pleasant.

3. The Towering Big Buddha
Known as the islands' most significant and revered landmarks, the Big Buddha is one of the few attractions you shouldn't miss. Built at the top of the Nakkerd hills, the towering image of Buddha catches your attention even from far away. The peaceful atmosphere as well as the magnificent view from the top is simply ravishing!

4. Sunset View at Cape Promthep 
Located at the southwestern tip of Phuket, this enticing viewpoint is one of the most visited and well-photographed attractions. Tourists and even the locals alike would flock in this area to watch the sunset at its best. It also offers a 360 degree panorama of the picturesque islands.

5. Wat Chalong Temple & The Old Phuket Town
Your Phuket adventure wouldn't be totally complete without visiting the spectacular Buddhist temples and dignified shrines. After all, this is what Thailand is known for. If you want to experience beyond the beauty of its bewitching beaches, then paying a visit to the Wat Chalong Temple is a perfect start.
Roaming around the old Phuket town is a must if you want to take a taste of its local culture and interesting history.

Where To Stay?
A cozy accommodation is essential for a refreshing holiday experience. We chose to stay at Baan Karonburi Resort which is known as the premier destination for cosmopolitan adventurers. Set in a beachfront location, this Siamese inspired hotel is a few meters away from Karon's finest white sand beaches, highly recommended for sun-seekers and beach lovers. 

Gorgeous Travel Buddies
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to these stunning ladies who have made my Phuket experience more meaningful and exceptionally memorable. To the beautiful Miss Xamantha Alexandra Lee, who had meticulously organized our trip. To Miss Leslie Park for her fashionable ideas and congenial charm. To Miss Kristie Joy Paler who had traveled all the way from the Queen City of the South just to be with us in this once in a lifetime adventure. Your inspiring enthusiasm and companionship were highly appreciated! 'Till next time..:-) Cheers!
