Quick Guide

  • Thai
  • Thai baht

Phuket is a favourite place for all of the nomads and expats who love to travel. Why? It is cheap, has great beaches and Thailand culture is simply amazing. Once you arrive in Phuket, everything will seem different. From the weird Thai fruits, fun street snacks including fried insects, and the local lottery madness, to the amazing amulet market and unreasonably cheap accommodation options.  It is no wonder why so many people have decided to move here and spend the rest of their lives on this beautiful island.

Bring your swimming shorts and visit some of the spectacular beaches on the island. There is the Patong Beach that is considered to be the ultimate party spot. Also, make sure to explore the longest beach on Phuket, The Bangtao Beach. For those who want to stay away from large crowds of tourists, Kamala Beach is the number one place to go, and The Surin Beach is reserved for visitors, who besides the sun and the sand would like to enjoy some seafood specialties. Always take a souvenir from Phuket when visiting. It is a tradition here. Soap flowers, t-shirts, spa products and silk, are just some of the souvenirs worth purchasing in Phuket.
