Thailand's dreamy island province of Phuket Island (Koh Phuket) in the Andaman sea is the Pearl of the South and entices numerous vistors time and time again,
being world renowned as a tourist paradise.
The name Phuket is derived from two Thai words, phu (mountain) of ket (jewel), and this is recorded in a Thai chronicle.
With its magnificient white sandy palm-fringed beaches and bays, its crystal blue island-dotted waters, its fantastic underwater scenery, its luxuriant vegetation, its calm and relaxing tropical atmosphere in combination with
an enthusiastic shopping and night-life experience, its sincerely hospitable and friendly people, its superb accomodation, its mouth-watering seafood and international and local cuisine, its delightful turn-of-the-century Sino-Portuguese architecture, and its numerous sporting and leisure opportunities,
Phuket truly offers a memorable holiday.
Suffice to say it probably needs no further indroduction. The lifestyle says it all.
