The Area: Phuket, Thailand
A melting pot of religions, experiences, and, of course, international tourists, Phuket combines everything that can be expected of a tropical island destination and puts it all into overdrive. Idyllic beaches and lush forests are juxtaposed against the hectic energy of Patong, often referred to as the party capital of not just Thailand but the whole of Asia. Just a short hop to the south of this lies the areas of Karon and Kata, famous for their pristine beaches and proximity to all the action of Patong without being in the thick of it.
Surin Beach is notable for its white sand, clear water, and village-like atmosphere. One of Phuket’s quieter tourist beaches, its high-end hilltop villas and luxury resorts have earned it the nickname ‘Millionaire’s Row’. Lounging on the beautiful beach is the main attraction for most visitors, but those who have had enough sun have a wealth of bars and restaurants to choose from, plus shopping options at Surin Plaza.
