The island of Phuket, Thailand is a famous getaway destination which has evolved into a paradise of art and culture. It is filled with activities from the busiest beach of Patong to the laid-back city of Rawai. Here are the reasons why everyone wants to travel to Phuket, Thailand.

Beaches. Nothing says vacation like fresh sea water and warm of sand beneath your feet. Phuket is blessed with beaches and if you're looking for a less crowded one, Kata beach is for you. Activities can range from watersports adventure to food trips in their local restaurants.

You may opt to stay in the Boathouse which offers a room with a private sea-view terrace but if you want to experience having a private beach, a must try is the Anantara Layan Resort with a secluded beach that offers a 24-hour fitness area and pool.

Morning Activities on the beach. According to Metro, Nai Yang Beach offers free beginner's yoga classes if you stay in Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa.  Aside from that, they also have a variety of exercises classes including paddle-boarding and volleyball. If those aren't your fancy, try Thai cooking classes which includes making Pad Mee Sapam and receive a collection of Thai recipes.

Island Hopping. Phuket provides easy access in visiting neighboring island like Phi Phi Islands. Boat rides can take only up to two hours giving tourists enough time to enjoy swimming, snorkeling and even sun bathing to achieve the perfect natural tan. 

Food. This multicultural island offers a wide and diverse array of cuisine. According to Lonely Planet, a must is the Phuketian favorites like mee sua (sautéed noodles with egg, squid and shrimp), moo hong (braised pepper-and-garlic pork) and Phuket's signature cookies. Also, Blue Elephant serves classic Royal Thai delights.

Beachfront bars. If you like watching the sunsets or the rolling waves, try the Big Fish restaurant on the beach. It offers Western food and drinks you would surely enjoy.

Phuket is a culturally rich island that makes your trip not just for enjoyment, but also learning. There is more this island can offer and it is yet to be discovered.
