Phuket Thailand – Phuket is an idyllic beach destination and among the top choices when traveling to Thailand. This place is a little more crowded compared to other beaches I’ll mention in this article. It is a great place for diving and also has some of the clearest warm waters in the whole world. With its 540 square kilometers of land area and a number of sandy beaches, Phuket is unique and fascinating destination to explore.

Perhaps the most famous tourist area in Phuket is Patong Beach Central West Coast. The beach here is large and long with most of Phuket’s nightlife and cheap shopping area located in Patong which has led to the area becoming progressively more developed. In Thailand, Patong means “the forest filled with banana leaves”. Other popular beaches that are located south of Patong are: Karon Beach, Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach, Nai Harn Beach, Rawai, Kamala Beach, Surin Beach and Bang Tao Beach.

With the park’s pristine reefs, it is considered one of the most famous dive sites in the world, also affording some of the best snorkeling in Thailand. What separates Khao Lak from its neighboring tourist destinations like Phuket, is its privacy and seclusion. With the absence of the overcrowded tourists, a nightlife that is friendly for families and the provincial ordinance prohibiting infrastructures to be built above the height of a coconut tree (although more or less), keeping Khao Lak’s beauty naturally.
West Raily – West Raily Thailand beach is a site considered as a diamond-in-the-rough. The sand is white and milky, while the water is very clear. Besides fishing, diving is a very popular sport here. This place is accessible by long-tail boat only, so expect and prepare for a long ride.
