Phuket
Phuket Island is located in the southern part of Thailand, in the Andaman Sea. It is the largest island of Thailand. Phuket in long stretches more than 40 kilometers. And the island it is possible to consider conditionally - located very close to the beach, Phuket has a quad road bridge that connects it to the mainland. Immediately after the bridge on the island you will meet the checkpoint, more like a border fence, after which you are waiting for dozens of kilometers along the road of good quality, to the main areas and the beaches of Phuket.

Phuket is located relatively close to other popular resorts - Koh Samui, but they are very different from each other and each has its advantages. Phuket is more strongly pronounced seasonality. In the autumn significantly higher probability of rain on many beaches of high waves, which bring joy to surfers, but to bathe despite the rescuers are on every beach in this weather is very dangerous. But the fall season has its advantages, the main of which - a very small number of tourists. This allows you to find accommodation with substantial discounts. Low season - not necessarily a hindrance to good rest. Rains can be short and go away every day; As far as the waves - you can always pick up a beach, where they will not be.
