"The Pearl of the South"
Phuket is Thailand's largest island and lies in the Andaman Sea off the country's south western coast. Thje island's terrain varies from rocky beaches and long broad sweeps of sand to limestone cliffs and forrested hills. It has good beaches, tropical vegetation and a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. The main resorts include, Patong, Kata and Karon Beach. Better beaches are scattered all around the island.
We hired a bike for the entire stay and explored a lot of the island, finding beautiful beaches.

Sundowners at the pool deck Impiana Beach resort

My husband Roger enjoying a refreshing drink on the pool deck. The Pool bar menu was very good. The pizza's were better than we experienced in ITALY.

Phi Phi Island

I dont think any person visiting Phuket or Thailand should miss a visit to Phi Phi Island.

    Great looking hotels. Love the laundry tips. Sure beats washing them in a bucket.

    Great updates on your Phuket page- Jet ski looks like fun That water!! So blue. Great transport tips. Bangla Road sounds interesting. And having personally seen that oil painting I agree that it was an excellent purchase.

    The thai food sounded great especially with a few cold beers!

    I laughed when I read the story about the transvestites being prettier than some of the tourist ladies. :)
