Thailand is a dream come true destination. It is a tropical and densely forested paradise with vibrant markets, skyscrapers, grand palaces, temples, and world-renowned floating markets and exotic beaches. If you are looking for an escape into the tropical paradise, then you must explore “The Pearl of the Andaman”, another name for Phuket. The most popular island of Thailand is Phuket and it is the largest as well. 

Thailand’s tourism is not just boosted because of its natural beauty but also because Phuket has the presence of a string of ultra-luxurious and upscale hotels and resorts. It never fails to impress the tourists. Phuket has numerous options for accommodation for budget travelers as well.
