About The Best Places to Visit in Phuket, Thailand

Thailand is a wonderful exotic country! The largest island of Thailand is Phuket. It is located in the Andaman Sea, which is located in the Indian Ocean. This is a great place to relax. A heaven for tourists who love just to lie in the sun and for active recreation. Excellent hotels, real estate Phuket and the magnificent white sand beaches will remain in your memory for a long time. The hospitable people of Phuket are always happy to receive tourists.

 

The name Phuket is translated as "mountain" and it's actually very similar to the green mountain, which rises in the Andaman Sea. The significance of Phuket to Thailand since ancient times is very great. After all, it is considered a commercial and a cultural center. Many historical monuments have survived to the present day. So do not miss the chance to see them.

 

The Temples in Phuket are astonishingly varied and beautiful. I would like to mention the details of the temple of Wat Hong Prat. That it contains a large statue of Buddha. Its more than once that the Burmese army attacked and tried to dig out of the ground and carry it. But they failed. Another amazing place is Wat Chai Tararam considered the most popular in Phuket. After all, there is a stone of Buddha. The structure, which houses the bone, called the "chedi" is often searched by tourists.

 

Speaking about the island of Phuket, I would like to also mention the Forest Park Khao Phra-Theo. There are two beautiful waterfalls: Tonsai waterfall and Bangpe. They are the ornament of the park. The Park Khao Phra-Theo is a real jungle and it is found in many exotic animals and birds. Brought from other places, the traumatized monkeys get good treatment here. Especially for them, the park is conducting a program to adapt to new conditions of life. Framed by white sandy beaches washed by the warm waters of the Andaman Sea,

 

Phuket is considered to be a tropical paradise. Here are some of the most magnificent beaches in the world and the best resort hotels. Phuket offers a diverse vacation - from simple bathing in the sun before sailing, scuba diving, traveling on the sea in a canoe to playing golf.

 

Phuket is the largest island of Thailand, the pearl of the Andaman coast. Located on the south-west of the country, 862 kilometers from Bangkok (70 minutes by Thai Airways), Phuket is one of the most prestigious resorts in the world, famous for the exotic nature, white coral beaches, rich marine life and the most exquisite sea food in Thailand. The best season for holiday in Phuket is from late October till April. From May to late October monsoons bring south-westerly winds from the tropical rains, which, however,are quickly replaced by sunny weather. This period is the best for windsurfing, so that if you are not afraid of occasional rain Phuket is waiting for you in summer.
