Cinema-worthy holiday moments
If you feel like you're in Hollywood on Phuket, there are good reasons for that. After all, the spectacular landscape of the Thai holiday island has already served as a film backdrop several times. Famous film locations were the James Bond Island at Phang Nga Bay and the Maya Beach on the Phi Phi Islands, scene of "The Beach".
From beach holidays to discovering the green hinterland: Phuket has something for everyone. One of the most famous sights is Wat Chalong, the largest temple on the island. If you are looking for the hustle and bustle, head to the city beach of Patong, where the nightlife also takes place. Those who like being active and doing sports will also get their money's worth around Phuket: From climbing and bike tours to water and jet skiing and diving trips, everything is on offer. Phuket is also an excellent starting point for island hopping or for travelling on to Krabi, the famous holiday region on the other side of Phang Nga Bay.
