For these reasons, Phuket is a great location if you are travelling on a budget. There is no reason why you should limit yourself to destinations close to home when you can go to Phuket for roughly the same budget. Let`s face it, although many people are choosing a staycation, these can be just as pricey as a trip abroad.
Hotels and resorts are well appointed, expect to have your every need and requirement covered. You will likely find multiple pools, gyms and fitness suites and excellent spa facilities. There are some great resorts on the island and picking one, even if you are on a budget, could be tricky.
Many people travelling to Phuket are going for the beach life and also the nightlife. Phuket has a reputation of being a bit of a party hotspot and deservedly so. With Gogo Bars and Ladyboy Shows this isn`t for the faint hearted but if you really just want a relaxing time on the beach and/or exploring, then a more cultural trip is most definitely on the menu.
There are plenty of parks and forests to be explored and enjoyed or why not take an elephant safari? Phuket and Thailand have an interesting and far reaching history which can be explored through many of the temples and monuments. Phuket`s national museum is well worth a visit and has a number of ancient artefacts on show.
Travelling to Phuket on a budget is not as difficult as you may have thought and if you shop around, preferably with a reputable agent, you can get some great deals. Better deals are available if you take advantage of special offers and Thomas Cook discount codes can make this destination even more affordable.
