The hype for Phuket Thailand, pronounced " puu gèdt” ภูเก็ต, as a bucket list destination in the world remains steadfast due to its equatorial island-city appeal. Hanging 863km south of Bangkok in the Andaman Sea, it is Thailand's largest island at 48km in length and 21km at its widest, a total of 543 km² excluding over 32 smaller islet attractions off its coasts such as Koh Phi Phi, Koh Racha, Koh Maiton, James Bond Island, Ko Surin and the avid diver’s favourite Similan islands, reachable via sea tours and transfers available for instant online booking at Footloos.com.
Phuket’s tropical climate is beach wear and flip-flop friendly all year round, also in major commercial shopping malls such as Central Festival and Jungceylon. The peak tourist season to visit Phuket is from October to May when there is the least rainfall, especially over Christmas and New Years festivities. The driest and hottest summer months are January,
February and March. Famous white beaches namely Kata, Karon, Patong,
Kamala and Surin will be colorfully dotted with large umbrellas and sun lounger mats for rent from 200 Thai baht.
