Phuket Town, Phuket

— 5 nights
The economic hub of the eponymous island, Phuket Town attracted merchants from China, India, and Portugal long before it became a tourist destination.
Your day by day itinerary now includes John Gray's Sea Canoe. Visit Patong Beach and Karon Beach for some beach relaxation. Visiting Kata Beach and Krabi Elephant Sanctuary will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Spas in Patong (about 36 minutes away). There's more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Big Buddha Phuket and take some stellar pictures from Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong).

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Phuket Town online travel route planner.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
