Does your family have a travel bucket list bursting with ideas of places around the world where you would all love to visit? We do and on our list we have some locations quite close to home and some far flung destinations that one day we hope to visit. One of the destinations we all would love to visit one day is Phuket in Thailand. Nestled in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is a plush green mountainous island with some of the most breathtaking scenery and stunning beaches.
Having done some research, here are just four reasons why Phuket should be on your family travel bucket list too
Phuket beaches are beautiful
The beaches of Phuket are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. White glistening sands with the clearest blue waters of the Andaman Sea, they’re a real treat to explore. There are many beaches perfect for families whether it’s fishing, snorkelling, watersports or just enjoying a lazy day on the beach with cool dips in the sea. There are beaches for everyone to enjoy.
Incredible places to stay
Bang Tao in Phuket is a very popular destination for families to stay. There are some incredible places to stay on the west coast with panoramic views that are just idyllic. Many families choose to stay in a villa in Bang Tao as it’s the perfect location for being close to the beach and accessible for sightseeing the island. Staying in a private villa is my idea of heaven as privacy on holiday is something I really value. I love that the family have freedom to explore and aren’t on top of each other unlike hotel rooms, they’re able to enjoy a unique experience living like locals and enjoying the best of the island whilst enjoying the perks of personalised concierge services who really like to look after you. Not only do they look after their guests but they look after the local environment too which is a massive bonus when you’re conscious of your carbon footprint!
Activities for the whole family
There is something for everyone on Phuket with a huge choice of activities for the whole family. Perhaps it’s the islands natural wonders that excite you with attractions such as Khao Rang Viewpoint, Big Buddha, Sirinat National Park and Bang Pae Waterfall. Or perhaps its the out of the ordinary Elephant Parks where retired elephants are looked after or Phuket Aquarium to see life under its seas. Or maybe the Splash Jungle Water Park or Anthem Wake Park that appeal the most. There is so much to see and do.
Enjoy the weather
Phuket in Thailand enjoys a tropical climate with its temperatures soaring into the high 30s from March until May followed by its monsoon season between mid-May until October. Most tourists enjoy its warm and dry weather in high season between November and February. Ultimately Phuket is an all year round destination but be mindful of the rain if you go during the British summer months.
There are so many other reasons why Phuket is on our family travel bucket list but these are the main ones for us. A beautiful destination in a far flung corner of the world, with glorious weather, a different culture to immerse ourselves in and enjoy. Is Phuket on your family travel bucket list?
