Book a holiday in Phuket, Thailand, to experience a vacation that offers cultural attractions, entertainment scenes, and beach retreats. Located off Thailand’s west coast, it’s the country’s largest island, which means there’s plenty of space to pack in must-visit attractions, from sacred temples to picturesque landscapes. During your next vacation to this island, plan on seeing it all and experiencing its warm, laid-back culture. Begin your adventures by getting to know the local culture and history in Old Phuket Town, where you’ll discover shrines, Sino-colonial mansions, and museums. While you’re on the island, make a stop at Wat Chalong—Phuket’s largest temples—and jump on the opportunity to visit the Big Buddha. Looking to let loose a little? Peek inside the go-go bars along Soi Bangla, venture into Phuket Fantasea to marvel at the stage performances, and don’t miss the action at Patong Beach. It’s not truly a vacation until you fit in some rest and relaxation though, so spend some time shore hopping, from the Kata and Karon Beaches to the Nai Harn and Surin Beaches. Phuket is calling, so book your travel arrangements today.
Booking an island getaway doesn’t have to mean handing over your life savings. Here at Expedia.co.nz, we make travelling affordable thanks to our cheap deals on Phuket accommodation. Take a look at our vast selection of lodging to find a place that suits your vacation vibes—and budget.

Looking to escape the cold? You’re in luck—Phuket is warm year-round. March is typically the hottest month, with temperatures averaging 29 degrees C, while January is considered the coolest month with only a slight drop in temperature to 27 degrees C. Do realize that September is the wettest month, so avoid this time of year if you’re hoping for sunshine. Since it’s practically always a good time to visit, book your flights into the Phuket International Airport (HKT), which is located on the north-eastern side of the island. Hire one of our car rentals in advance, hop on the Phuket Airport Bus into Phuket Town, or arrange for a taxi to give you a ride to your final destination.
