Do some cultural sightseeing at Big Buddha Phuket and Chaithararam Temple (Wat Chalong).

Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Bangla Road, enjoy the sand and surf at Kata Beach, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and take a leisurely stroll along A&F Tour Travel.

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.
