Southern Thailand’s province of Phuket includes the nation’s largest island and part of the mainland, with a bridge connecting each part. One of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, it is easy to reach by road and air. There are many sandy beaches to enjoy, each with a different vibe. Some are bustling with an array of vendors and watersports while others are relatively peaceful and quiet. The large island is known for its energetic night scene, with numerous clubs and bars in the legendary Patong.
