Flights to Phuket Allow You to Explore Charming Attractions

by Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals

Phuket is the second smallest province of Thailand and comprises the main island and other smaller islands located off the coast. There are many things you can do while in this popular Thai tourist destination. It is abundant in natural beauty and is home to some fantastic cultural attractions. You can also use the island of Phuket as a base for getting to some of the enchanting islands nearby. The island of Phuket is connected to the Phang Nga Province by the Sarasin Bridge. Krabi is its nearest province.

The gateway to this province of Thailand is the Phuket International Airport. Upon arriving in any of the flights to Phuket, you can get to the place where your accommodation has been arranged by taking any of the reliable transport modes. During your stay in this part of Thailand, you'll get the chance to explore some of its renowned places. One of them is the Phang Nga Bay, which can be explored with the help of a day trip from Phuket Island. A visit to this bay would allow you to witness James Bond Island and Koh Panyee Island. While cruising around in the Phang Nga Bay, you'll also get to explore some magnificent limestone cliffs.

During your time spent in the Phuket province, you can also visit the Phi Phi Islands. Over the years, the island has become a favourite among many tourists and has also become a reason for some to make a trip to Phuket. You'll find these islands mesmerising with all their towering cliffs, beaches set against the backdrop of a jungle, and a serene atmosphere that instantly delights the senses. Of these islands, Phi Phi Don has been home to a population of fishermen who arrived on the island in the mid-20th century. Phi Phi Leh rose to prominence when its beach was used as a location for the film, 'The Beach'.

While you’re in Phuket, don’t forget to visit the Big Buddha. This 45-metre statue is one of the prominent landmarks on the island of Phuket and can be seen from distant places, such as Karon Beach and Phuket Town. Constructed on top of the Nakkerd Hills, the statue is known among the locals as Phra Puttamingmongkol Akenakkiri Buddha and was built in 2004. The body of the Big Buddha has been constructed using reinforced concrete and layered with Burmese white jade marble. You'll also find a smaller statue of Buddha next to this magnificent statue, which is made of brass.

You'll also have some exciting shopping opportunities while getting around in the local markets. They give you good bargains and are the right places to get attractive souvenirs and gifts. It would be a great idea to do all the shopping at night without having to wander under the hot sun during the day. The night markets open after the heat of the day has waned. You can also watch some brilliant performances given by the street musicians while at these markets. They create a festive feel to the surroundings and make your shopping experience even more memorable.
