The largest island of Thailand, Phuket has now become one of the popular beach destinations in the world with its white-sand beaches and a range of other exciting offerings.

While visiting these islands you can also get plenty of choices in beaches, which would allow you to unwind and enjoy a relaxed time amidst beautiful stretches of white sands.

If you wish to have cheap holidays to Phuket, plan your trip during the period between May and October. This is the time when the island experiences its monsoon season and the heavy rains keep most of the tourists away. As a result, the hotels and resorts would be forthcoming in offering some attractive discounts on room rates. Although you may not be able to enjoy certain activities like swimming in waters touching the west coast, there are many other activities you can enjoy while holidaying in this island destination. From November to April, Phuket experiences its peak tourist season. Book your holiday package or hotel accommodation several months in advance if you plan to visit during this season.

Your Phuket holidays can be made truly memorable with a visit to some of its gorgeous beaches, such as Patong, Kata, and Karon. One of the most spectacular landmarks of the island is the Big Buddha statue, which was constructed in the year 2004. In order to reach this magnificent monument, you'll have to climb numerous steps that lead to it. A visit to the Rawai village would help you witness the more authentic side of the island and get a glimpse of the way of life that the tribe of 'sea gipsies' called Moken follow. You can experience the quieter side of the island upon visiting the Sirinat National Park.

During your cheap holidays to Phuket, you'll get the opportunity to enjoy swimming in crystal-clear waters that touch the powdery sands of the island's charming beaches. An island boat tour would take you to some of the enchanting islands located nearby. The fascinating blue waters around the island provide the best snorkelling and diving experiences in the country. With these thrilling activities, you can witness the attractive corals, tropical fish, and many other varieties of marine life.

While holidaying in this fabulous Thai island, you'll also get to savour its delectable treats. Among them is the Pad Thai or fried rice noodles, which has become a favourite of tourists over the past few years. It is a combination of stir-fried rice noodles, tofu, eggs, dried shrimps, fish sauce, and various other ingredients. One of the classic Thai dishes you can taste while in Phuket is Khao Pad or fried rice made with pork, chicken, or seafood.
