Phuket overview

Phuket Travel Guide
Beautiful beaches, scantily-clad women and westerners are what you can expect to see most of in Phuket. The island in Southern Thailand is one of the most frequented holiday destinations in the country and also a popular spot with European expats. During high season, every inch of the most popular pristine white sand beaches is filled with sun worshipping holidaymakers looking to advance their years with some good old fashioned tanning. Patong Beach is one of the islandís busiest areas and it is especially popular with young and old men alike, as the streets here are filled to bursting with go-go bars and strip clubs. Away from the seedy side of Phuket there are a few undiscovered gems, however, and quieter beaches boasting a more un-touched Thai feel can be found if you can drag yourself away from the debauchery.
