Phuket is an island province belonging to the country of Thailand. It is the largest Island in Thailand and is smaller in area only to Singapore. Its economy is mainly based on tourism and with good reason. Phuket is one location which is steeped in history and exotic culture.
Five reasons to visit Phuket:
If you are a believer in divinity and spirituality, Phuket is your best choice for a trip into a divine experience. The best location to head is Laem Phromthep that is located at the south end of Phuket. Phrom is the literary Thai translation of the Hindu term ‘purity in universe’ and ‘Thep’ signifies ‘God’ in the Thai language. The natives refer to the place as ‘Laem Chao’ or God’s Cape. Laem Phromthep is endowed with scenic natural beauty and you will find attuned with nature and your inner spirit.
Sure, you will find forests at many locations, but those in Phuket are unique in a very exotic sense. You will find an abundance of flora and fauna that is unique to the region. Phuket’s forest is managed by Khao Phra Thaeo Wildlife Conservation Development and Extension Centre. Their main purpose is to protect the wildlife that faces the grave threat of extinction. They take an active care in promoting and distribution of the wildlife all over Phuket.
3. Untouched beaches
In major tourist locations, you will find beaches which are tainted with cement constructions, numerous restaurants, etc., keeping them bustling with people. If you are of the private type and want undisturbed beaches, then go to Phuket. You will find pristine beaches which are underdeveloped and untouched by humans. Prominent among them are Kamala beach and Hat Karon. Many Phuket tour packages ensure that you get a chance to visit at least one pure beach.
Phuket is well-known for preserving artifacts from ancient times. In fact, the Thalang National Museum is one of the most well stocked ones in the world. It was built in 1985 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Thalang war, in which the Thailand troops defeated a numerically superior Burmese army. Make sure that your tour and travel packages to Phuket include a trip to the Thalang National Museum. You will get to know the rich history of Phuket and appreciate the local culture even more.
5. Outdoor fun
You cannot sit inside your hotel when you are in Phuket. The location has so many activities to offer such as ATV rides, swimming, surfing and even unique Elephant treks.
So book your holiday packages to Phuket and have a great vacation.
