Useful Tips For The First Time Traveller To Phuket


Before you book accommodations at a hotel pool in Patong make sure that you have researched all information available about Phuket. For the most part, Thailand is a safe and peaceful country for tourists. Tourism-oriented services can be conveniently found in the island of Phuket. There are regulations to ensure safety but they are not unusual.

The best season to visit Phuket is from December to March because the weather is favourable. If you are not afraid of the heat, you can visit Phuket from April to June which is the hot season. July to November is the wet season and the rains can compromise your enjoyment.

Phuket boasts of beautiful beaches but if the red flag is flying, do not enter the sea to swim. The seas can be rough during the months of June, July and August with very dangerous rip tides. Even if the day is sunny, it can be interrupted by occasional downpours. Only a few people will risk their lives to swim or dive. However, flights and accommodations are cheaper.

Dengue fever is not common in Phuket although there are mosquitoes. Malaria has reached the point of non-existence. If you do not want to be bitten by a mosquito, always use insect repellent. Since most hotels are air conditioned, you do not have to be afraid of being bitten by a mosquito when sleeping.

There are also temples in Phuket but if you plan to visit, always dress appropriately. This means that your shoulders and legs must be covered. Always remove your shoes and hat before entering the temple as a show of respect because the images of Buddha are highly regarded in Thailand.

Make sure you know how to haggle in the markets; vendors expect it from you. However, do not haggle in the shopping malls and convenience stores; their prices are fixed.

It is suggested to participate in the activities that have been arranged by hotel pool in Patong because the staff will ensure your safety and enjoyment. After eating a tasty breakfast, you can join the tour to James Bond Island and experience the breathtaking beach. You can also visit Dolphins Bay Phuket and take a selfie with a dolphin.
