Image4. Phuket -- A paradoxical holiday

If you have always wanted both a serene and a hectic getaway, then Phuket is the perfect destination for you.

The island offers the best of both worlds. Patong calls to the party animals while the north seduces with its serenity.

By day, Patong entertains with activities like scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing; at night the town bustles with activity as the crowd visits hundreds of restaurants, chic lounge bars, beer bars and of course, discos.

The other side beckons with near-deserted beaches and hidden beaches like Laem Singh. By day and night the beaches up north offer serenity on a platter -- the great food serves as a side dish!

Tip: Although many Thai people in Phuket speak some English, being able to speak a few words in Thai will help smooth the way and maximise your enjoyment.
