Virgin Voyages' guide to Phuket, Thailand
Thailand’s largest – and most magical, island.
There’s a reason Phuket is one of the most sought after travel destinations in the entire world – whether it be the exciting nightlife, the world-renowned beaches, or the beautiful surroundings that are an inevitable reminder of how breathtaking the natural world can be. Dip your toes in the sand with a handcrafted cocktail in your hand as you watch the Reua Hang Yao (traditional longtail boats) pepper the horizon as they seamlessly skim across the glistening turquoise waters and pinch yourself as a reminder that this is, in fact, real life.

Phang Nga Bay by Helicopter
From your helicopter, you'll see the Bay's many landmarks, from famous James Bond Island to Panyi Island, a fishing town marked by acres of stilt houses built out onto the water. On the descent, you'll see lush mangrove forests, tiny villages, and more signs of the bustling local economy.DISCOVER MORE SHORE THINGS
When most people close their eyes and describe what paradise would look like, they’d be describing Phuket. Thailand’s largest island features unbelievably pristine white-sand beaches, unlimited options for exploration — including scuba diving and snorkeling the wildlife-ladened, turquoise waters, an impressive amount of historical landmarks, traditional Thai farms of different varieties and some of the best food and beverage in the entire world. No matter how you decide to spend your time in Phuket, you’ll certainly leave with an understanding of why everyone who visits can’t explain exactly why it’s so idyllic — because frankly, the iconic pictures don’t even do it full justice, it’s just something you have to feel.
