Phuket, Thailand
Scuba Diving, Snorkelling, Deep Sea Fishing



Phuket is Thailand’s largest island, roughly the size of Singapore. Discovered by adventurous backpackers in the 1970’s, word quickly spread making Phuket one of the world’s favorite tropical playgrounds.

Situated on Thailand's Andaman coastline, Phuket Island is connected to the Thai mainland by bridge spanning the narrow 500m gap at the north tip of the island.

It’s not all about lazy days on the beach and pulsating nightlife, as Phuket has plenty on offer for the adventure-traveler too. The Andaman Sea offers a range of water sports from scuba diving to deep-sea fishing, kite-surfing to jet skiing virtually any warm weather sport. For those want to get away from the water try a bungee jump or rent an ATV to go tearing through the jungle.

Getting to Phuket

It is possible to get to Phuket by car or bus, but the majority of tourists fly into to Phuket Airport.

If you enter Thailand via Bangkok’s main International Airport you’ll be able to jump on one of the many daily domestic flights heading down to Phuket. Flight time is around 80 minutes.

Many international flights also go straight into Phuket, especially from other Pacific region hubs in Australia, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. Non-stop flights are even available from as far away as the UK.

Climate and Best Months to Visit Phuket

Tropical Phuket island has year-round warm weather that is affected by the monsoon (rainy season) which occurs between April and November.

Peak season is December through March with sunny skies and turquoise seas. Even if you visit during the wettest months it does not rain every day, and there are some terrific bargains to be had.
