If you are aimed to entertain well in Phuket than consider visiting it between December and April before the rainy season starts in the summer from May to November. But Phuket is not all about white sand beaches and sun, as it is also a perfect place to explore the Andaman region.
Right there in the waters of this sea off the west coast of Thailand lies this adventure land – Phuket. It is almost the same size as Singapore, but has better coastline with 40km of scorching sand. But Phuket is not isolated from the mainland. It is about 900km south from Bangkok, being connected to the mainland by a 100m-long causeway.
With a population numbering almost 1.6 million inhabitants in Phuket - it draws immigrants from across the world. It is true that Phuket’s ethnic makeup is too diverse even to imagine and has been shaped by trade going back 500 years.
In the past, Phuket thrived on tin production, which attracted European colonial powers such as the Portuguese and British. Thus, many workers from China, Portugal and England relocated to Phuket to work in the industry and for better life.
Today, a better life can be obtained by even a temporary stay in Phuket - Consult Booked.net – a website offering you discount prices on all Phuket hotels.
