Phuket’s beaches may not be as impressive as the other places featured here but there’s one compelling reason to go — the superb resort experience. Phuket is a paradise for travelers who want to enjoy a 4 or 5-star hotel splurge at amazing value for money. Another reason why Phuket is so popular is the easy accessibility thanks to well-connected Phuket Airport. While you’re here, visit Patong (the main tourist spot) for a beautiful sunset view along the beach, delicious seafood dinner or outlet mall shopping. Nearby Hat Karon, offers a more quiet vibe, Meanwhile, go to Phuket Town for a more local experience.

The day cruise to Phang Nga is one of the best island hopping tours that you can book from Krabi or Phuket. This beautiful bay is known for mass limestone formations that jut out from the emerald green waters. The most famous spot is James Bond Island (Ko Tapu), which appeared in the 1974 James Bond movie — The Man with the Golden Gun. If you’re traveling from Krabi, make sure your itinerary includes Ko Hong, which features a stunning lagoon with crystal clear waters.
