Solo Trip to Phuket


PHUKET, JULY 25, (UITV): Phuket is located in Southern Thailand. It is the largest island of Thailand and sits on the Andaman Sea. The nearest province to the north is Phang-nga and the nearest provinces to the east are Phang-nga and Krabi.Phuket has a large Chinese influence, so you will see many Chinese shrines and Chinese restaurants around the city. A Chinese Vegetarian Festival is held there every year. While the Chinese community is quite big, there are many other ethnicities bringing all their traditions and festivals from all over the world to Phuket. Being a large island, Phuket is encircled by many magnificent beaches such as Rawai, Patong, Karon, Kamala, Kata Yai, Kata Noi, and Mai Khao.

Best time to visit phuket: If you’re not like much crowds, you can avoid January and February. These are peak travel months for Phuket and much of the rest of Thailand. if you don’t mind sharing your beach with a throng of other people, it’s at least a great time to meet like-minded travelers. The rainy season in Phuket runs from April through to October. However, many Phuket regulars cite this as the best time to visit, as hotel and travel rates are low and the beaches are much less crowded.

Attractions of Phuket: Big Buddha, Wat Chalong ,Khao Sok National Park, and best islands Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island, Similan and Surin, Koh Phi Phi.

Bangla Road: Hurtling down the centre of Patong, Bangla Road is where all the action takes place after the sun goes down in Phuket. Late-night bars pump out music from huge nightclubs such as Famous, Seduction, and The Factory. Bangla Road–and Beach Road nearby–is truly the beating heart of nightlife in Phuket. This area is always alive with music, girly bars, and clubbers, and while it is of course busy, it’s also a non-threatening place to party the night away.

Beach bars at Kata: Kata Noi Beach, where three little bars invite chilled out beach-bum types to sip cocktails while watching the sun go down. The bars here–After Beach, Small Viewpoint and Baan Chom

Simon Cabaret: It is situated near Patong Beach, the Simon Cabaret hosts the most respected lady boy shows in Phuket, and is the attraction in Phuket in its own right. The show features some impressive sets, even more dazzling costumes, and some of the most glamorous performers in the industry, so it’s not difficult to see why it’s become one of Phuket’s main attractions.
