Top questions about Phuket


first. There are many nice areas with beaches. All are different. it depends on your preferences and the time you are going. There are small romantic quiet areas, party areas and a lot of choices in between.

Phuket has many different beaches and they vary from very busy ie Patong to quiet , and lots in between. Different people prefer different beach areas.

Choosing your beach depends how you want to spend your days and evenings , for example if you want somewhere quiet and relaxed or you want somewhere with lots of shopping restaurants bars / nightlife etc.

It does not make much difference regarding tours as the operators collect from most locations.

Perhaps read up on some of the most popular to get an idea of the differences , Patong , Karon , Kata , Kamala , Bangtao etc

Hi. I would like to ask also about this. The area which is best to stay at. I would be staying for only for 4 nights in Phuket. I prefer to be on beach front resorts/hotels, not very crowded. But not far away from restaurants and bars or the town itself. Im not sure which town/area is nice for relaxed holiday.

Best for what? It would be good to explain what you mean by the term "best"!

#3 - You need to read more about each beach area so see which one suits what you are looking for , Karon or Kata may suit but you need to look with care if you want beachfront / on the beach
