From Koh Samui to Phuket

Phuket is the largest Thai island. It offers a wide variety of experiences.

Culture, beach, diving, amazing food, the famous night markets, shopping and a fascinating nature full of green mountains surrounding the whole island.

Phuket is for everyone and every budget, it knows how to spoil its visitors with the variety of choices. It is also surrounded by magnificent beaches such as Karon, Patong, Kata Yai, Kata Noi, Kamala and many many more.

You can take a ferry from Phuket to the famous Koh Phi Phi or visit the mystical Phang Nga Bay. You will easily find many trips from Phuket to enjoy Krabi and all the nearby islands.

Thai is the official language in Thailand. But you can find that tourist operators speak English but still, just to be safe, you might need to carry a Thai phrasebook.

And when you’re communicating with tuk-tuk and taxi drivers, you might need to show them your destination address in Thai just to make sure they understood where you’re going.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the biggest Thai island is between November and April when the weather is ideal for beach activities such as boating, snorkeling, and swimming.

The other six months are monsoon season, the accommodation prices are way lower these months but the water can be dangerous, and it is hard to find a trip by ferry or a speedboat because of the water conditions.
