Phuket is one part of Thailand that has grown very quickly and has a sophisticated infrastructure, which is precisely why it is inundated with tourists, visitors and expats keen to settle here and call it home. If you are seeking a place to get away from it all then this might not be the place for you, although it still retains its charm and hidden beaches can be found if you're prepared to search for them, it is a busy island and increasing in popularity and population, which is precisely why it's loved by its residents and the thousands of holidaymakers arriving here expecting first-class accommodation and entertainment.

Connections to the major Asian hubs of Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul and Hong Kong, as well as Australia, are also readily available.

Transportation and infrastructure on the island is well developed, and first-class services and facilities available including international hospitals and schools, golf courses, boat marinas, premium hotels and top restaurants are all in place to receive guests from all over the world.
