Phuket, Thailand


The Island of Phuket (pronounced ‘Poo-ket’), commonly referred to as the ‘Pearl of the South’, is the largest island in the country of Thailand. Lying in the perfectly clear and warm waters of the Andaman Sea off the south-west coast of Thailand, this fantastic island is literally a tropical paradise. The remarkably varied terrain on Phuket includes long strips of white, sandy beaches against crystal clear waters, limestone cliffs and fascinating coral reefs, heavily forested mountains, awesome waterfalls, and every kind of tropical vegetation one could imagine.
