Phuket island,
Phuket Town & Chalong



Phuket Town

To differentiate the city in the province from the homonymous island, Thaïs addes to Phuket the word "Town". Capital of the island, Phuket Town, builded with a sino-portuguese style, doesn't look like the others tropical cities. Sometimes you have the impression to be in Malacca, in Penang or inMacao.


Phuket island

Surface : 543 km²
Population : 188 500 inhabitants
Local Currency : bath


How to go there?

By plane : there're several daily flights from Paris via Bangkok.
Best period : from november to april.
To evitate: the monsoon period (from mey to october); the precipitations are frequent during the evening.
Constant water temperature : 28°C. It's also the annual temperature average .

On the spot

Really cheap Tuk-tuk, and moreover, it gives you the same feeling than the biggest european roller coasters,
Song téo (collective taxis). they leave only when they're full.
Bus service from Phuket Town to all the beaches.
Car and motorbike rental withou insurance. Be careful: you have the responsability of any material damage and of all those you cause to other people.


Chalong - some images of the streets

rues de Chalong
Even if normally in Thailand they drive on the left side, don't be surprised to see the motorbikes driving in all the directions and in both the sides of the road

Scuba diving
In the open sea next to Phuket, Anemone, Reef, Ko Phi Phi, ko Rajah are all amazing places, frequented by a lot of divers. There's a zone where the leopard sharks, familiar and harmless, let the people get closer. The Similan islands, in the north-west of Phuket are classified as national parc.The relief is surprising : the volcanic rock piles go into a labyrinth of neverending volumes. The high faces arecovered with soft corals and sea fans. Also the Surin islands in the north of Similan are listed as a national parc. It's the best site to meet the whale shark. Some people told me you can moor to its tail for some moments.

Best diving period : from november to april
