Thailand is exotic, cultural and exciting all at once, and the island of Phuket has all three in abundance.
Once seen as a honeymoon paradise, Phuket has evolved and is now the busiest of Thailand’s tropical islands. It is also the largest island and certainly is the most diverse. You can choose to lounge on a beach all day and enjoy some spa treatments or party all night in one of Patong’s shall we say ‘lively’ bars. Although still a tropical paradise there are numerous things to do here. A trip to one of the neighbouring islands, Phi Phi being the most popular or a visit to the old town of Phuket, with it’s quirky streets will not disappoint. It is also a great place to chill out after a trip to bustling Bangkok or elephant trekking in Chang Mai.
Sunway Holidays offer many holiday options in Thailand and at very competitive prices. I have chosen the Old Phuket Karon . Ideally situated this 4* hotel is across the road from the beach and close to many bars and restaurants in the resort centre. It is a perfect choice for those looking for some relaxation yet within easy access of Patong, which is only 15 minutes away. This resort has also received a certificate of excellence on tripadvisor. Facilities on site include two swimming pools, two bars, four restaurants and a fitness centre.
Fly from Dublin on the 9th of May and spend seven nights here for only €839 per person. This price includes flights, taxes and checked baggage. Mix it up a little and spend four nights in Phuket and three nights in the Phi Phi islands for only €1049. You can also add on a city break in Bangkok or an elephant trek in ChangMai, the choice is yours….
All prices are correct at time of issue but are subject to availability. This post was sponsored by Sunway but all views as always are my own 😃
