Phuket is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world, and when it comes to planning your Phuket getaway, it can seem like everyone has advice to give.

It’s worth talking to the experts. Travezl day tour packages in Phuket will leave you organised and ready for a stress-free time in this island haven. Travezl has kindly compiled some tips and advice for planning your Phuket escape.

Best time to visit

Phuket is a year round destination, but mid-May to October is considered the rainy season, which brings higher humidity. November to February is peak season in Phuket. The weather is temperate, dry and reasonably cool at night. Plan your trip around this time of year if you can.

Where to stay

For many destinations, pre-booking hotels can be tricky. It’s sometimes difficult to know what to expect on arrival, and many of us settle for cheaper options with the idea that a hotel is only for sleeping in.

In Phuket you don’t have that problem. Hotels that would cost hundreds of dollars per night elsewhere are well within the budget of even the most frugal of travellers.

To push the boat out on something special, have a look at the The Shore at Katathani. This luxury resort offers an idyllic and peaceful location, with an emphasis on total relaxation. Children under 12 are not allowed.

What to pack

It’s worth noting that if you find you need something you’ve left at home, it can almost certainly be purchased in Phuket. So packing light is the key.

Remember to pack essential items like medication and have your prescriptions with you to show authorities. Having a copy of your passport is also a good idea. You may be required to show it and it’s safer to keep your actual passport in your hotel safe.

Things to see and do

There are so many Phuket activities and day tours, and you can really do as much or as little as you like. Once you’ve had enough of the incredible beaches, here are some ideas for tours.

Phuket Town makes a great day trip. Stroll in the market and admire the well-preserved Sino-Portuguese architecture.

At 45-metres tall, Phuket’s Big Buddha is hard to miss. The statue can be seen from across the southern end of the island and is worth a visit for the amazing views.

Pha Nga Bay, located in the marine national park of the same name, makes a great day trip. The limestone cliffs and aqua waters are breathtakingly beautiful.

The Phi Phi Islands are a great day tour destination, and offer pristine beaches and a fabulous marine environment. Snorkeling is very popular here.

Phuket is just one part of the amazing country that is Thailand. When planning your Phuket activities and day tours, don’t forget to leave a little time unassigned just to soak in the warm welcome you are sure to receive.
