The land of smiles
You've seen Phuket many times on your film screen, as it is a favourite for Hollywood directors and the scene of many blockbusters, from James Bond to The Beach. It's Thailand's largest island and there are 30 more nearby in the Andaman Sea. Phuket is mountainous with sandy beaches and clear waters on the west coast. Check out Phang Nga Bay's marine park, the limestone islands of Ko Phanak and Koh Hong, the Koh Pan Yi stilt village and Koh Phi Phi. If you love diving, Similan and Surin Islands are must-visits on your cabin charter itinerary.
