Phuket (pronounced Pookhet) is Thailand’s largest island. It’s a province in itself and a major tourist destination. Phuket offers something for every visitor: verdant hillsides, luxurious golf courses, unique beaches, azure seas, world-class scuba diving and water sports, surprisingly cheap shopping, outstanding dining and a vibrant nightlife. As Phuket is Thailand’s richest province, the infrastructure is surprisingly good when compared to neighbouring provinces and countries.
