Flights To Phuket

Don’t pronounce it “foo”: The “h” in “Phuket” is as silent as this Thai island’s most secluded beaches, but the nightlife (and day life) are anything but quiet. Phuket holiday packages can take you from the watersports and culture of Phuket Town to the beach-and-party scene of Patong (yes, they are one and the same). Bookmark that novel and continue on the beach—you’ll be touching down before you know it.

Getting Around Phuket

Flights to Phuket International Airport (HKT) land on the north side of the island, while the popular hangouts of Patong and Phuket Town are in the south. No worries though. Most hotels in Phuket will arrange a shuttle for you, and even long taxi rides are relatively cheap. In town, you can rely on songthaews and tuk-tuks (converted trucks) for transport—and for a thrill.

When You Land…

During daylight, head to Nai Yang Beach, just 3km south of the airport. This mostly-locals beach is quiet, so take a nap before you hit the party scene. In the afternoon, relax at the spa with a traditional Thai massage. But wait—did someone say “party scene”? You can go from the airport straight to the club when you’re on Phuket flights landing at night.

Fine, you can drop your bags first!

Live Like a Local

If the way to your heart is through your stomach, you’re already living like a local. The street food scene here is 24/7, cheap and delicious. Oh, and…crunchy. Nhon mhai, takatan and jing reed are all fancy words for, well, bugs. For something a little less on the wild side, go for Phuket-style dim sum (siew boi), which involves a lot more fried foods and chilli sauce than the traditional version—yum!

Ready for a holiday in the “Land of Smiles”? Book one of Wotif’s cheap flights to Phuket, pack up your sunnies and you’ll be on the right track to a grin of your own.
