– The first trip is mostly Bangkok to Phuket and Phuket travel is more or less already routine.
Phuket travel packages are available from many tour operators and travel agencies. Phuket is the main tourism destination in southern Thailand and hundred of thousands people are coming in from all over the world, its somehow becoming such as Mallorca in Spain. After the tsunami which hit Phuket, Phi Phi and Khao Lak real bad with more than 4000 victims the people started to think a little bit different but this faded away quickly, it’s as usual, quick money.
Phuket is more focused on fun, action, beach and nightlife to cater the younger audience, the old guys from Europe who chase the Thai girls are passe’, now there are the guys from 20 to 40 years coming from Russia, the new central Asian states, India, Arab countries, Israelis and Africa.
The focus for south Thailand holidays is shifting from low coast tourism into luxury tourism, at least this is what the Thai government is trying to implement, they have some success which can be seen at Phuket Bangtao Beach where most Phuket luxury hotels and villas are. But there is another luxury destination on Phuket Island which is Mai Khao Beach.
– Phuket is by any means the most popular travel destination in southern Thailand, with great beach resorts, hotels, beaches, nightlife action and
the well known Thai bar girls. People who travel to Phuket usually take vacation packages and some have a real vacation of a lifetime by different means. Many Phuket travel packages include airfare, accommodation, transfers, maybe a island tour and VIP nightlife services to the popular nightlife spots at Patong Beach Bangla Road. Some nightlife services include Thai bar girls for the guys, the girls are flocking into Phuket Island during the main season by between hundred and two hundred thousand, they are all coming to make the foreign guys happy and earn some money. But first it needs to travel Phuket via road travel or Phuket flights. Phuket flights are most convenient but a tour Bangkok to Phuket by bus is also very interesting because it opens up new perspectives usually unseen.
the first step to reach the island is usually via Bangkok unless coming in directly by an international flight to Phuket Airport and from the capital of Thailand the choice is either via air, about 70minutes or Bangkok to Phuket bus, about 12 hours, usually through the night starting at Bangkok’s southern bus terminal, read more.
