Phuket’s affinity for luxury makes it a popular destination for tourists, both those seeking the sun on the picturesque, relaxed beaches to those looking to make the most of the rich culture and history.
Why is Phuket the right destination for you?
As one of the most popular destinations in Thailand and the biggest island, Phuket is famed for its picturesque beaches - the perfect place to relax after your cosmetic and dental procedures. Understandably, it is known for its hospitality and smiling faces which will greet you before, during and after your procedures.
Things to do:
Before and after your surgery there is time to unwind, recharge and explore your chosen destination. Make the most of it with these suggestions.
Phuket has an abundance of beaches with glistening white sand, towering palm trees and blue seas, it is no surprise it is among the world’s finest beach destinations. To truly relax and unwind try Rawai in the island's southern tip which is blissfully laid-back or Mai Khao beach on the northwest coast. If you want to have a bit of everything at your fingertips try Patong or Kata, both of which offer varying degrees of nightlife and beach life.
Phuket is a bustling travel destination, offering a little bit of everything try:
- Scuba diving or snorkelling in the crystal clear waters that have been voted among the top spots in the world.
- Exploring the Big Buddha atop the Nakkerd Hills.
- Taking a day trip to nearby islands, including James Bond Island.
- Attending a Muay Thai match.
Shopaholics beware, with open-air village markets, street stalls, local shops, department stores and upmarket boutiques, this is a paradise you may never want to leave. Make a trip to Jungceylon Shopping Mall in Patong Beach, Premium Outlet Phuket in Phuket Town, Banana Walk in Patong Beach and Phuket Weekend Market (Talad Tairod) in Phuket Town to fill your case.
Noisy night markets make trying local cuisines such as Pad Thai and Tom Yam Goong a tantalising adventure. Try Chillva Market Phuket in Phuket Town, Phuket Walking Street in Phuket Old Town and Malin Plaza Patong in Patong Beach for authentic meals and treats. Or maybe you want to indulge at Kan Eang@Pier, which specialises in seafood and local delicacies or Joe’s Downstairs, one of Phuket’s leading restaurants.
