If you've heard of Phuket, you must be wondering why I decided to put this fantastic city here in the section Off the Route. After all, as a city that receives around 11 million international tourists a year (15th city that receives more tourists in the world) may be off the route of Latin American tourists? 

The great truth is that we Latins see Phuket only as one of the ports of access to the famous islands   Phi   Phi . The Phi Islands   Phi are beautiful indeed, and deserve a separate chapter here at Viajando Fácil, but today I want to tell you why Phuket should be a mandatory stop on your next visit to Thailand.  

Being the largest island in Thailand, Phuket is about the same size as the city of Florianopolis, in Brazil or that the entire Republic of Singapore. Even for this reason, the city has a wide range of leisure options, which fit all budgets and styles. 

When thinking about an island in Thailand, the first thing that comes to mind is the beach, right? But before I start talking about the beaches of Phuket , I need to say one thing: they are all bathed in crystal clear waters, typical of the Andaman Sea, and have an average temperature of 28 ° degrees, which makes the sea bath always pleasant. It is relaxing.  

Let's talk about the beaches! There are 36 that I have already counted and visited. In other words, there is something for everyone. If you are looking for a more deserted beach, your option is Banana Beach or Freedom Beach. If the idea is a more popular beach, go to Kata or Nai   Harn . Are you in the mood for a first class Beach Club? On Kamala beach there is a branch of Café Del Mar , the same one in Ibiza. Do you prefer a quieter beach, fishing village style? Phuket has its southernmost beach, called Rawai , which will suit your needs.  

Tired of the beaches (or rested on the beaches) and ready to enjoy the night? Bangla Road in Patong is your main destination. In this street that hardly sleeps, you will find everything, everything. There are bars, restaurants, clubs, bars with pole dancers and many, many tourists on the busiest street in the city.  

Phuket also offers great restaurants, with rich local cuisine and specializing in seafood. And don't forget the famous street food markets that are always an adventure. Phuket's city center, on the other hand, has a small-town feel, with historic mansions, several Buddhist temples and an active and varied local commerce.  

If you noticed a certain love in this text, it is because I am in love with this city. So much so that I decided to have a base here and convinced the Bibi come here. It's from Phuket that we wrote for you most of our texts. 

Viajando Fácil will still talk a lot more about Phuket, going deep and showing you all the details and tips to visit it is beautiful Thai island. In the coming days we will publish more details of Phuket in sections Flavors and find it out. And next week, a detailed guide in the Destinations section. 

So, tell me: you’ve heard of Phuket? Have you visited? 
Did the text make you want to get to know the island?
