It's also the departure point for superb excursions and nautical adventures in the Bay of Phang-Nga, Krabi, the famous Phi Phi Islands as well as a number of small paradise wild islets and also cruises to the Similan Islands close to Burma.
On land Phuket is situated close to the big national parks of Khao Lak, Khao Sok, Krabi and Phang-Nga. Or you can enjoy adventures by Land Rover or elephant riding.

Today it's a reputed and well known destination thanks to the number of local and international flight connections, its great choice of hotels, the fine conditions of living and its medium prices.

Your security is guaranteed: no political troubles, no crime nor aggression.

The different religions of the island, Buddhism, Hindu, Islam and Christians live in perfect harmony at a Thai rhythm.

Phuket with its affable always smiling population is still the best remedy against stress.
