Info about Phuket
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand. It lies well below the latitudes of the notoriously destructive tropical storms and its balmy tropical climate is popular with visitors and makes Phuket a year round destination. Water temperatures range from 26-28°C, allowing tourists to enjoy water sports without the need for wetsuits. Tropical rainforests provide excellent opportunities for trekking and the coral reefs are some of the best in the world, and diving is a huge draw card for visitors.
