About Phuket

Phuket is a popular tourist destination located in southern Thailand. It is the largest island in Thailand and is known for its stunning beaches, vibrant nightlife, and rich cultural heritage. The local currency in Phuket is the Thai Baht, and it is recommended to exchange currency at authorized money exchange counters or withdraw cash from ATMs. Credit cards are widely accepted in most establishments.

When to visit

The best time to visit Phuket is during the dry season, which runs from November to April. During this time, the weather is sunny and the sea is calm, making it perfect for beach activities and water sports. However, this is also the peak tourist season, so expect larger crowds and higher prices. The wet season, from May to October, brings occasional rain showers and higher humidity, but it is still possible to enjoy Phuket's attractions and activities.

Getting around

Phuket has a well-developed transportation system that makes it easy to get around. Taxis and tuk-tuks are readily available, but it is important to negotiate the fare before getting in. Another popular mode of transportation is renting a scooter or motorbike, which gives you the freedom to explore the island at your own pace. Additionally, there are local buses called 'songthaews' that operate on fixed routes and are a more affordable option for getting around.
