Cruises to Phuket

About Phuket

Thailand's largest island lures visitors for basking on unspoiled beaches, diving and snorkeling in the Andaman Sea and personalized pampering at ravishing resorts. The cruise port is about a 20-minute drive from Phuket town, a buzzy mecca for shopping (bargain hard, except in malls or brand-name stores), restaurants and clubs. Save time for exotic shore excursions, like visiting elephant and gibbon sanctuaries, and gasping at the more than 147-foot-tall Big Buddha, adorned with white Burmese jade marble, towering over Nakkerd Hills. Lunch at a resort for exquisite Thai cuisine that's easy on Western stomachs and for sensational ocean views.

More about Phuket

Why go to Phuket?

Pros:

Phuket's pristine beaches and lagoons are swoon-worthy

Cons:

Phuket town is touristy

Bottom Line:

Snorkelers, divers and sunbathers deem Phuket paradise

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Currency in Phuket is the Thai baht. For up-to-date currency exchange rates, visit www.xe.com. ATMs are located near the port, and both ATMs and currency exchanges are plentiful in town. Credit cards are widely accepted. The U.S. dollar is sometimes accepted at souvenir shops and are often given as gratuities to shore excursion guides.

Language?

Thai is Phuket's official language, although limited English is widely spoken, particularly at tourist attractions, shopping malls and bigger restaurants.
