One holiday in Thailand could never be quite enough. Its interior blends peak, plains, limestone crags and jungles. Phuket International Airport is a 40 minute drive from Patong, Kata and Phuket City tourist areas. Taxi's can be caught from the far side of the car park, a 5 minute walk outside the terminal. Be wary of the more expensive limousine service on offer inside the arrival hall.
The land of a sweet, savoury, spicy whirl on the palate. A place with 2 tropical coastlines sporting beaches that don't need Photoshopping to entice. There's a bevvy of jungled islands with coral gardens off shore. VAT known as Value Added Tax is applied at 7% to the manufacturer price of goods before they are sold in Thailand. If you plan on doing some shopping during your stay, it can be a good idea to do a bulk of your shopping at stores displaying the 'VAT Refund for Tourists' sign.
Ask anyone who's already travelled through Southeast Asia what part they enjoyed the most and they will invariably answer, "Thailand". Luxury resorts, crystal blue waters skirted by magnificent beaches, colourful Hilltribes in the north, adventurous jungle treks, and the contrast of old and modern Thai culture in exciting Bangkok.
