Which is better Phuket or Krabi? A. If you are looking for a well-developed place with all the facilities then Phuket is the place to be. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy the bucolic nature and laze around in the natural setting then Krabi is the best choice.
If you're looking for more larger resorts with tons of amenities, Phuket is your best bet. Phuket also tends to have more hotels closer to the restaurants and nightlife. If you're looking for a beach bungalow on a quiet, more remote beach, you'll find more of those across Phi Phi.
Koh Phi Phi is one of the most expensive islands in Thailand, especially for budget accommodation. Even a bed in an 18-bed dorm room can cost you upwards of 1000 baht per night ($33).
Getting to Phi Phi Island is pretty easy. This group of six islands is located 46km from Phuket and roughly the same distance from Krabi.
99% of the time, Phuket is a pretty safe place to visit but most of the really harmful situations arise out of the heavy-handed nature of some of the scams and ripped off tourists all ignited under the duress of Thailand heat, a few drinks and a deal gone bad, we still recommend to take extra cautions with taxi drivers in night, avoid Jet skies on beach. 1155 is a tourist police toll free number please contact them in case of emergency.
Phuket is one of the southern provinces of Thailand. It consists the country's largest island, and another 32 smaller islands off its coast. Phuket Province has an area of 576 square kilometers (222 sq mi), somewhat less than that of Singapore, and is the second-smallest province of Thailand. It formerly derived its wealth from tin and rubber and now from tourism. Phuket has now got 100’s of attractions, tours and activity to experience. Our full day tours, Half Day tours, beyond Phuket island tours, Phi Phi Island tours or nearby island tours is the best possible way to experience the beautiful island of Phuket.
Phuket is hot and humid throughout the year. The hot season is generally considered to be from March to early May. During the summer monsoon season from May to October, mornings and afternoons are still sunny and clear, but it tends to rain in the evenings and water clarity goes down. Locals consider November to February the "cool" season, and the weather is quite tolerable, much more so than in the tourism centers around the Gulf coast. It's comparable to Florida's summer weather in temperature and intensity of rain storms: 25-33°C, flying clouds, short and thunderous rainfalls in the afternoons and evenings. Surfing is possible off the western beaches.
Phuket is among the world’s finest beach destinations, with fine white sands, nodding palm trees, glittering seas and lively towns.

Phuket is blessed with more than 30 amazing beaches to choose from. Patong Beach, Kata, Karon and Kamala have always been the most popular, but the north of the island reveals some hidden gems for travellers searching for a more romantic atmosphere.
• Thao Thep Krasattri and Thao Si Sunthon Fair is held on March 13 every year to commemorate the two heroines who rallied the Thalang people to repel Burmese invaders.
• Vegetarian Festival or Nine Emperor gods Festival Phuket Chinese people Call Tsia̍h-tshài is held on the first day of the 9th Chinese lunar month (end-Sep or early-Oct). Phuket islanders of Chinese ancestry commit themselves to a nine-day vegetarian diet, a form of purification believed to help make the forthcoming year trouble-free. The festival is marked by several ascetic displays, including fire-walking and ascending sharp-bladed ladders.
• Ghost Festival Festival is held on the middle day of the 7th Chinese lunar month. Intrinsic to the Ghost Festival is ancestor worship. Activities include preparing food offerings, burning incense, and burning joss paper, a papier-mache form of material items such as clothes, gold, and other goods for the visiting spirits. Elaborate meals (often vegetarian) are served with empty seats for each of the deceased in the family. Other festivities may include, buying and releasing miniature paper boats and lanterns on water, which signifies giving direction to lost souls.
• Phuket King's Cup Regatta is held every December. The Kata Beach Resort hosts yachtsmen, largely from neighboring countries who compete for trophies.
• Laguna Phuket Triathlon is held each December. The triathlon (a 1,800 meters (5,900 ft) swim, a 55 kilometers (34 mi) bike race and a 12 kilometers (7.5 mi) run and a 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) fun run) attracts athletes from all over the world.
• Phuket Travel Fair starting 1 November, is usually called the Patong Carnival, from the place where celebrations occur. Colorful parades, sports events, and a beauty competition for foreign tourists are major activities. A popular festival, the Patong Carnival opening drew over 30,000 foreign and Thai tourists.
• Chao Le (Sea Gypsy) Boat Floating Festival falls during the middle of the sixth and eleventh lunar months yearly. The sea gypsy villages at Rawai and Sapam hold their ceremonies on the 13th; Ko Si-re celebrates on the 14th; and Laem La (east of the bridge on Phuket's northern tip) on the 15th. Ceremonies, which center on the setting small boats adrift similar to the Thai festival of Loi Krathong, are held at night and their purpose is to drive away evil and bring good luck.
• Phuket Bike Week is the biggest motorcycle event in Asia. Motorcyclists with their motorcycles and visitors from many countries join this event in every year. The event highlights include a motorcycle exhibition, bike parades "Ride for Peace", custom bike contests, live entertainment, Miss Phuket Bike Week competition, bike accessories and apparel from local and international venders.
Festivals in Phuket are exciting, sometimes bizarre spectacles and certainly never bland. The island's most distinctive event is the annual Vegetarian Festival, featuring processions of god-mediums performing shocking acts of self-mortification as a test of faith. This bazaar of the bizarre is held annually over 9 days in the 9th lunar month of the Chinese calendar.
Lively and colourful events that are unique to Phuket include the Phuket King's Cup Regatta and Phuket Bike Week, while others, such as Loy Kratong and Songkran, Chinese New Year, are part of nationwide celebrations. The island gets busy during festival times so be sure to book your hotel well in advance.
Phuket has a tropical monsoonal climate. It's warm year-round, but it’s hottest from April to May and from September to October. The September–October period is also the wettest, thanks to the south-west monsoon.
Thanks to its position in the Andaman Sea, Phuket weather is mostly mild. The island avoids the majority of the typhoons and tropical storms which occasionally batter Hong Kong and the Philippines. Heavy rains in September and October can cause minor disruptions. Even so, it's rare to see several days of bad weather. Note that online weather forecasts are always on the pessimistic side – a whole week with the thunderstorm icon doesn't mean it will rain all day!
Phuket's Bangla Road really comes to life after sunset, when the road is closed to traffic and becomes a 400-metre festival of neon lights, loud music and cheap beer. Jammed most nights of the year, it's quite a friendly and lively place to walk around, with dozens of bars and clubs competing with each other for customers.
Beer bars occupy most of the street's length, with several go-go bars and a few pubs, restaurants, discos and shops rounding out the attractions, both on Soi Bangla and down its side streets. Street performances are also common most nights, which can make dodging around the tailor shop salesmen, leaflet distributors, street vendors and ping-pong show touts more difficult, but it is all part of the fun.
There are no direct rail services to Phuket.However, many trains leave from Bangkok's central station going south all the way to Singapore. The most comfortable are the sleeper trains (c. 685 baht for a berth in a 2nd class air-con car. Get off at Phun Phin railway station near Surat Thani and continue for another 5 hours by regular bus to Phuket. Do not buy the bus ticket until you actually see the bus and can make sure it is not standing room only as it picks up passengers at the popular Ko Samui ferry. If full, wait for the next one. See Surat Thani for more details.
The compact Phuket International Airport (IATA: HKT) is in the north of the island, and is Thailand's second largest hub, second only to Bangkok. There are very frequent flights to and from Bangkok as well as direct flights to many other airports in the region, including Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, and direct charters to Europe and Australia in the high season.
6 hospitals exist in Phuket. The main hospital in Phuket operated by the Ministry of Public Health is Vachira Phuket Hospital, with smaller hospitals at Thalang and Patong. 3 Private hospitals exist which are Phuket International Hospital, Bangkok Hospital Phuket and Mission Hospital Phuket.
Went with my wife and my daughter to Phuket from Singapore.Got issued a visa on Arrival.Checked into PATONG beach hotel ( actually the Patong Beach hotel is near to the beach than the Patong beach resort). wonderful hotel.Very friendly staff.Went to PHI PHI island tour by the speed boat.
The maya beach is top class and the water is so clean and dos not smell unlike the beaches in India.Imust say that was the most relaxing trip I ever had. I was mentally so fresh when we came back to the hotel in the evening.Then went to see a very majestic larger than life live show called the Fantasea.
Worth watching.Veg food excellent. Even the food served by the vendors on the streets is excellent. We stayed for 2 nights. But I must say 4 nights would make a great holiday with the family.I would recommend it over Pattaya for Indian families.
It wont be embarrassing for any member of the family. I must say at the end of the day I could see a smile on the face of my family members. That is what is needed.
Initially, I planned for 2 days stay over here. But after reading about phuket here I extended it to 4 days. Believe me 4 days is not enough. I would have loved to stay another 2-3 days. Covered quite a bit of places but left Phuket half -hearted.Warm people, weather and culture. One has to try what phuket as in offer. Good roads & infrastructure. The main streets can be covered by walk.
PS : I lived in Caribbean islands for 2 years and got around there for 4 countries. I would rank Phuket on par to some of the best Caribbean islands.
Recently I went to phuket.it was just amazing place for water activities lovers. God has given immens natural beauty to phuket. Phi phi island is a must see place to explore.sight activities like snokling, scuba diving, pera glinding etc etc were superb. Also phuket fsntasy show must watch.All animales are well trained.Off course for vegetarians it is hard to get veg food but still one can manage for 3-4 days.

Going to Phuket was decided after a months of research on the net. We decided on Phuket after declining Mauritius, Goa and Bali.
I was glad we chose Phuket. We visited Phuket in the month of April. It was an amazing experience. We stayed at a Hotel known as The Old Phuket at Karon beach. The best part was having mountains at one end and the beach on the other. Karon was a quieter beach than Patong. I was surprised not to see any Indian couple/family there. We had our trips to Khai island, Phi Phi island, went to Patong, did jet ski, parachuting, went to simon carbaret. We also had our share of Thai massages which were authentic and relaxing.
Thai people are the warmest and the most hospitable people I have ever come across.
I loved it to the core and given a chance I would love to visit Phuket again.
I think this has been included in a list of the 10 best vacation islands in the world - and I whole-heartedly agree with the inclusion. Phuket has everything that one would want in a holiday resort. Great party atmosphere, fabulous night life, beautiful beaches and lots to do in the day time. If one is interested in golf or scuba diving then this place is probably heaven on earth. Its particularly good for people who want to learn to scuba dive. There are several very professional diving schools, most of them run by good german or other european instructors and there are several easy dive sites as well.
I am sankarsh and I am here to review the best island I have ever been to. I had gone to this place 1 year back. And I would love to visit this place again. You can find many resorts in thus place which are really good. The beaches are very good looking and water is crystal clear. This would be one of the best places to take pictures. There’s so many amazing activities you can do in this place. You can just book a resort or hotel in your budget and you can just go out on your own visiting places. This place is absolutely safe for tourists coming from other places. Please visit this place at least once.
