I went for New Year's Eve 2012, for me it's the best time to go because it was really cold back home in Italy and I swam in the sea! As well as the temperature at this time of year, the colours of the landscape are really fascinating. Of course it's a very popular time to go so the island is full of tourists.

I recommend every one to try street food. That was incredible. Who are interested in sea food and vegans will have a great choice in Puket. Even you can find best restaurants on midnight. Thai Wiskey are so tasteful with nuts. I really like to vist again as soon as possible.

Appreciate what is offered to you with the knowledge that you are in another continent with traditions and customs different from ours. Rediscover the spirit of adventure and go in search of special places in the surrounding area, away from the tourist trail, accepting, with due wisdom, the guidance and help of the locals.

You can get fresh fish from the banquets on the waterfront and then cooked on the spot the way you like, either grilled or fried. Avoid the wine which is very expensive and choose beer instead. Even on the beaches there are places that do delicious scampi or grilled shrimp.

If you stay during a hot period I recommend bringing very few clothes, more than anything to avoid filling up the suitcase on the way out, so that you leave room for the stuff that you can buy very cheaply in Thailand. I also recommend negotiating with salesmen who otherwise take any opportunity to cheat tourists.

Visit the beaches and relax to the sound of the sea, especially on the less touristy beaches (such as Paradise Beach), and they're not difficult to get to. Visit the palm groves and temples dedicated to Buddha. Immerse yourself in the peaceful waters inhabited by a vast array of marine wildlife. Visit the Similan Island and Koh Tachai.

You should see all the islands around Phuket at least once. You have to use a speed boat, because with the big boats you can't get to the beaches. Pee pee and James Bond's island are really worth seeing. You have to get up very early, at 7:30am they come to take you from the hotel and the scheduled return to the hotel is around 5pm, unless there's traffic ...

It's worth a visit, the locals are friendly and helpful, I felt right at home. You can get around the island easily, maybe on a scooter, and visit beautiful places. The food was great, you don't spend much and you eat well. Ditto for shopping, so many things at cheap prices. Word of the day ... bargain!

Phuket town is a great place to while away the hours, lots of history. Most of the island is great but i do not like Patong but maybe that's because I fall into the older person bracket. The north end of the island has great beaches.

Going to Phuket means taking swimwear, shorts and lots of sunscreen! Nothing else is needed, at most a backpack for a hike on a nearby island! And if you need anything on the site you can find everything cheaply, from clothing to handbags, from cream to flip-flops!

My opinion about phuket after visiting this country more than 15 times and islands of course phuket is the most expensive area. And getting every year more expensive if you visit other island or main land. The people the are not smile like before only look the tourist as money people getting more agressive if you dont spent money to buy something. This makes many people to dont spend money. I hope in my next visit to dont see something like this as before..thanks..

The best time to visit Phuket is widely considered to be from November to March, when climate is still endurable and temperature doesn't usually exceed 32C (89F). Even if the weather in Phuket is quite warm all year round in fact, it's strongly advised to avoid the months from May to June and from August to October, since these are the hottest ones and when rainfalls mostly occour. Someone else also considers July as the best time visit Phuket instead, because of the gentle breeze that makes evenings very enjoyable...

Phuket is an exhilarating experience for the visitors as it offers a mix of beaches, markets, ancient architecture, temples, activities like fishing, scuba-diving and much more. The Butterfly Garden and Insect World is a captivating place that offers a learning experience. Visitors will find different species of butterflies and also get a chance to see a butterfly hatching in the lush garden area. It also houses an interesting display of bugs and insects like spiders.
The Phuket Orchid Garden and Thai Village is a place that takes visitors through a journey of Thai culture displayed ... More in its dance, Thai boxing, animal shows and other activities. Some of the major cultural performances include the Fon Tian, Fon Leb, Sukhothai dance and, the most popular, Ram Wong.
The Phuket Vegetarian Festival is an annual feature wherein residents follow a vegetarian diet for ten days. Sacred ceremonies are witnessed in all the shrines and temples.

Phuket is a city situated in Phuket Islands, Thailand. It is a small town with an active economic centre, appealing colonial architecture and riveting beaches. Phuket was incorporated as a city in 2004 and is home to a populace of about 60,000 people.
The city is characterised by a tropical monsoon climate with year-round warm temperatures. Phuket possesses two main seasons, dry and wet, owing to the monsoon winds. April to May is the hottest period, while October and November are the coolest months.
The name ‘Phuket’ originates from the word ‘bukit’ ... More which means a hill. Phuket city is an interesting blend of traditionalism and modernism. Its growth-oriented economy consists of tin mining, agriculture and marine products.
