With and area of 500 square kilometers in area, Phuket is the largest island in the Andaman Sea. Phuket is large enough to contain hidden corners of interest by small enough to explore comfortably. While the main attraction is the kilometers of white-sand beaches, water-sports facilities, and a vibrant nightlife, Phuket is also noted for a unique tradition of mixed Chinese and European architectural styles. This blending of cultures also gives rise to rich culinary tradition based around the abundant fresh seafood of the west Thailand waters.
Phuket is paradise of food. There are restaurants to suit every taste, serving a huge selection of western and Asian food. The variety of cuisine and dining experiences is one of the major attractions of the island. You can eat breakfast at your hotel, lunch at a local noodle stall, and have dinner with fine wines in a sophisticated air-conditioned restaurant.
