Hedonism is right at home in the Thailand party hotspot of Phuket where cocktails are served in buckets and it's perfectly acceptable to sleep in to noon and party till dawn. Wash your sins away under the clear Andaman Sea or work them out with a massage or a day shopping in Patong. Sail the Phi Phi Islands, drink coconuts under the shade of a tree or shop for antiques in Old Phuket Town. No matter where your Phuket adventure takes you, there is always a cold beer and a pad thai just around the corner.

When you find yourself in an island paradise you'd be forgiven for thinking there was anything else to do but 'nap, swim, eat, drink, repeat', but there are plenty of ways to burn off those pad thai calories. Go kayaking around the islands, explore national parks, snorkel, visit a temple or go catch some waves on Kata Beach for starters.
Nothing says Phuket more than a day trip exploring the turquoise waters, secluded beaches and sheer limestone cliffs and rock formations in the Phi Phi Islands - it's the stuff movies are made out of - literally - explore the famous bay where The Beach was filmed and visit the cheeky monkey residents at Monkey Beach. Our Thailand tours and holidays offer feature several different island trips for working on your tan.
