Phuket is a lovely and stunning place in its own right, but what makes it even better is that it makes for a great base from which to explore the whole region, which is equally blessed with jaw-dropping scenery. Within a relatively short drive or boat ride, there are numerous beautiful islands, national parks, unspoilt coastlines and other forms of tropical paradise.
Many of these alternative destinations lack the first-rate accommodation and facilities of Phuket, making them best enjoyed in a daytrip. It will be a day you will not soon forget, whether you choose to marvel at the dramatic limestone formations, talcum powder-like beaches, vibrant coral reefs, rugged countryside or breath-taking waterfalls.
