Those who visit Phuket for its beaches will be surprised to discover that the small island offers much more than soft sand and warm water.

Often referred to as the ‘Perl of the Andaman’, visitors to Phuket can explore the cultural background of Old Town Phuket, with its elegant Sino-Portugese-style buildings built nearly 100 years ago, and enjoy a vibrant nightlife.

The island of Phuket also has many temples. Most famously, Wat Chalong houses a pagoda that contains the Buddha’s relics.

Air-conditioned and regular buses leave the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok daily.
