Phuket is famous for its beaches and attracts visitors from all over the world. During our time in Phuket we have really enjoyed hanging out at the various beaches. There are always crowds and activity and the food and drink stalls and restaurants do a roaring trade.
You can hire a lilo with umbrella all day for about $3Aus. The water is always warm and the colours are amazing. You don’t see many white people: most are brown or red from the sun!
