Phuket is a treasure chest of exiting activities, sites to explore and adventure to be had. Even during the low season, April to October, you may see days pass in a blur with not a dull moment to pass. Off-shore islands wait to be discovered with organized boat trips, shopping opportunities are starting to rival even Bangkok, the nightlife is alluring and electrifying and sunny days on a choice of beaches will be remembered forever. While the first class facilities at the best hotels Phuket offer will see to much of your enjoyment, exploring the hidden treasures of the Pearl of the Andaman outside the confines of your 5 star resort in Phuket will lead to amazing new discoveries.
