Phuket City Guide
Phuket (pronounced po-get) a small island in the Andaman Sea, off the western shores of Thailand. In the past, the island was an important trading stop for ships going from India to China. It also produced tin, rubber, and other goods, that were sold in market places and transported along the various oceangoing trading routes that crisscrossed the Indian Ocean. Today, its balmy weather and scenic beaches make it a prime tourist destination, and spice-trading ships in Phuket ports have been replaced by flights to Phuket bearing tourists from around the world.
Due to its popularity asa tourism destination, Phuket International Airport is the number 2 airport in Thailand, second only to Bangkok. Many flights to Phuket International are available from cities all over Asia and Australia, although you will probably have to connect in a place like Hong Kong if you are coming from Europe or America. The ease of travel from the airport into town depends on exactly where on the island you want to go. There are airport shuttles into Phuket Town, the main city on the island, which are cheap and take about an hour. Cabs can take you to the other towns and resorts on the island.
The bus network on Phuket Island is not famous for its reliability, but it works well enough. It is organized in a radial system connecting Phuket Town to the various resort towns on the coast. Allow plenty of time, as you will most likely be waiting at the stop for a while. Get a cab if you are looking to save time, but due to road conditions and lawless, erratic driving, renting a car is not recommended. It is also possible to walk many places, especially around the countryside and amongst the resorts.
- Phuket has many animal attractions that are especially popular with younger visitors. These include Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insect World, the Phuket Aquarium, and a crocodile farm as well as Phuket Zoo.
- Snorkeling is perhaps the most popular activity among visitors to Phuket – the beautiful reefs off the coast afford incredible sights that you can find nowhere else. You can take a guided tour or just rent equipment and go on your own.
- The Andaman Sea is littered with small tropical islands affording great hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, and beaches – to get off the beaten track, consider taking a ferry to one of the nearby islands off of Phuket and explore for a little while.
Thai food is world-renowned for its savory excellence. Phuket has its own cuisine distinct from that of other areas in Thailand, so make sure to get out and explore what the island has to offer. From spicy curry noodle dishes popular with locals to some of the best pineapples in the world, Phuket is sure to delight even the pickiest of palates.
Tips for Travelers
- English is widely used in the tourist-dominated towns and resorts of Phuket, but your neighbors and people you meet will appreciate some effort to speak their language. You will not need any Thai to survive, but it wouldn’t hurt to pick up a phrasebook and work on your pronunciation.
