where is the best spot to go in phuket for your first trip?


Country: Thailand


1. Promthep cape (sunset point)
2. Phuket town (old Chino-Portuguese archiecture)
3. Patong beach ( night life & entertainment)
4. Phuket fantasea
5. Phang-Nga Bay (James Bond islands)
6. Phi-Phi islands (recommend!!)
This all depends on what your interests are. I like Kata Noi because of all the small shops and restaurants. Much quieter than Patong or even Karon. Bang Tao has some nice inexpensive bungalows and a very large beach. Kamala is also interesting and close to Patong if you want nightlife, has some inexpensive places also.
Depends what you like, but Dek has given a good answer.
Heja. 1. to find an accomodation to your budget and personal preference on one of numerous bay/beaches on the west coast.
Then Dek made sound suggestions (abovementioned). For how long
in Phuket? What about diving / snorkeling?
Have fun
You need to let me know what you are looking for????
Party? Patong or any of the tourist towns.
Girls? Patong...
Nice Beach? Nai Harn
Or come visit us in Phi Phi Island where we have good diving and beach partys every night :-)

Hit Patong for a night of wild and crazy nightlife and then spend a day on the beach to unwind. After that the only logical choice would be to come sailing on my 30 foot sailboat for a daytrip or liveaboard tour of the surrounding Andaman Sea.The outer islands are where you will want to spend the most time at. They are paradise! Email me at for more...
Kata/Karon if you prefer a quieter spot than the more hectic Patong area. These areas are only 10 to 15 minutes drive from Patong if you want to go there for the night life.
Phuket, the jewel of the Andaman, can be whatever you want it to be. From glittering Patong to more remote and totally quiet places. Shopping, extravagant nightlife, luxury hideouts, beaches of terrific quality ... you name it. It's all there.

Tell me more and I can provide you with a tailor-made arrangement. Feel free to contact me via .

Have fun.
