Phuket is a Thai paradise. Looking for cheap flights to Phuket? Regular airlines fly to Phuket International Airport (HKT) from Europe but for the cheapest flights, try flights with low cost airlines from Bangkok, leaving practically hourly for Thailand's largest island.
Phuket is hot and humid year-round, so you're guaranteed good weather on your Phuket holiday. Monsoon season is May to October, hot season is March to early May and "cool" season is November to February.
Flights to Phuket with 1 stopover take at least 15 hours.
Phuket is the perfect place for a beach holiday. Yachting, diving, kite surfing, swimming and windsurfing are all popular things to do while on the island. For adventure, hire a car in Phuket and head inland to visit the wild waterfalls.
Prom Thep Cape: Literally, "God's Cape" this spot is not to be missed for its dramatic sunsets and high cliffs. There's no place like it. Head up the the peak for the best views.
Snorkelling: With so many sheltered bays, Phuket is a great place to snorkel. Ko Have, Ko Racha Yai and Ko Khai are the best spots. As for equipment, you'll find everything you need in and around Chalong Bay, including boats to hire.
Shopping: Like other places in Thailand, Phuket is a mecca for artisan shopping. Pearls, leilloware, ornaments and hand-crafted jewellery can all be bought in Patong and Kata. Dried seafood is also a popular souvenir but best to taste it first, you may not even like smoked octopus!

Resorts are king when it comes to hotels in Phuket and should be booked a few months in advance. For comfort, make sure your room has air conditioning to use at night.
A ban on vendors and service providers at Phuket's beaches means tourists have to bring their own umbrellas and mats to the beach. And that massage? Forget it.
