Overall Guide : 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... more 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 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.

Overall Guide : 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... more 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..

Overall Guide : Take a tour of the island by hydrofoil or ferry. It has unrivaled beaches! If you can, ask the local fishermen to take you to more isolated beaches, they're really beautiful. For those who love the sea it's really worth... more going.

Overall Guide : 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... more of the island has great beaches.
