Island Hopping Delight: From Koh Phi Phi to Phuket

Phuket island, Thailand's largest island, is located on the west coast. It was formerly known as "Thalang." It is derived from the Malay word "Telong," meaning "cape." Some locals still use this name.

From Phuket, you can take day trips to nearby paradises like Phang Nga Bay with stunning sea caves and the Similan Islands. On Thursdays and Fridays, don't miss Phuket's night market—an incredible experience with local food, shopping, and street performers.

Phuket boasts an international airport. It also has bus and train stations. It ensures easy access to the island, with options to fit every budget. Explore attractions with day trips, including Phang Nga Bay, James Bond Island, and more, by speed boat or cruiser.
