Car Hire Phuket
Phuket, ‘the Pearl of the South’, lies just off the west coast of southern Thailand in the Andaman Sea. It boasts an impressive wealth of natural beauty - tropical palm-fringed beaches, spectacular cliffs, wildlife-rich national parkland, breathtaking red sunsets, gorgeous waterfalls, and beautiful warm surrounding seas all serving to make the area a highly desirable location for tourists from all over the world. The man made attractions are just as alluring as the god-given, with a profusion of cheap and nice accommodation, bountiful restaurants, a lively and fairly hedonistic nightlife, lots of stunning temples, some superb golfing facilities, and much more besides making Phuket a highly sought-after destination for those planning a visit to the gorgeous ‘Land of Smiles’.
The island’s attractions a of such a variety and range that there is something offered to suit almost anybody – pilgrims and party-people, honeymooners and beach bums, eight- and eighty-year-olds alike are sure to find something in Phuket to meet their needs and expectations for their Thai travels.
Eating out/nightlife in Phuket
Eating out in Phuket, like in most parts of Thailand, is a low cost and often interesting affair. There are many good restaurants serving tasty Thai cuisine, but there are just as many that feel a little like ‘Fawlty Towers’, with mains arriving twenty minutes apart and starters arriving after mains… In times like these it is recommended to take a leaf from the Thai people’s book, and remain good-natured. After all, not only are meals cooked to order, but when the meals are as inexpensive as they are in Thailand, it’s difficult to complain about them.
Thai curries are flavoursome, satisfying, and wonderfully aromatic and are usually a good choice if you’re not sure what to go for. In general, your best bet is to stick to eating Thai food – not only is it generally far cheaper than western options, but it is generally, unsurprisingly, far better cooked.

Things to see/do in Phuket
There is a buzzing, bustling night market in Phuket where you can find a, extensive and colourful array of exotic fruits and vegetables, cheap Thai food, and local produce and crafts. Bargain hunting on a budget is easy here, and remember sellers expect you to haggle to some extent for whatever you are interested in buying. But it’s also worth remembering that things are very cheap here, so have a heart and don’t haggle too much – it’s probably only twenty cent you’re bargaining for, after all!
In Phuket, Thai massage is an absolute must. Spas offer hour-long (and even longer) Thai massages for ridiculously cheap prices, and a perfect afternoon of pampering here is something to experience! Thai massage can, at times, be borderline pleasure/pain, but stick with it and enjoy the deep mental and physical relaxation you will experience afterwards. You will pay just a few euro for at least an hour of being stretched, pulled and bent every which way.
