One of the most popular tourist destinations right now, Thailand is filled with places to visit, sights to see and a great culture to experience. The popularity of Thailand can only be comprehended by the sheer number of travel agencies offering Thailand holiday packages. Most of them offer Bangkok packages mainly, but that should not hinder you as the trip takes you to other places and not only Bangkok.
Who has not heard of Phuket? It is easily one of the most sought after destinations for tourists. Great and beautiful beaches, clear waters of the ocean, and magical landscapes, it is truly the dream destination. It has everything a visitor can ask for and has activities to satisfy the needs of all visitors. There are parties on the beaches for the party maniac, adventure sports for the adrenaline seeker and restful areas for those wanting a quiet time. But all of these revolve around the beaches and in Phuket there is no shortage of beaches. Some of the more popular beaches include Surin, Kamala and Karon beaches.
This city happens to be the second largest in Thailand and has quite a number of places for visitors to be interested in. Not only is the surrounding landscape breathtaking but there are wonderful temples also. These temples are Buddhist temples and most of them are worth visiting. This city is soaked deep in the culture and history of Thailand and is definitely worth a visit especially during the Handicrafts Festival held in January every year.
