Flights from the UK to Phuket will disembark at Phuket International Airport (HKT). As the second busiest airport in Thailand, Phuket International Airport welcomes over 3 million passengers per year. Serviced by 10 local and international airlines with world-wide reach, this busy island gateway houses both the international and domestic terminals. Phuket Town and Patong Beach area are approximately 20 miles from the airport.
Those who seek an activity-filled holiday can choose from a range of Phuket tours involving snorkelling, diving and sailing on the picturesque waters around the island. Racha Yai is the most well-known Phuket dive site with its spectacular coral displays.
On the other hand, you may prefer to laze around on the beach all day, before preparing for a night of partying and hedonistic pleasure. If this is your style of holiday, head to Patong for your night time festivities - the city holds the dubious title as the party capital of Asia. The internationally renowned cabaret shows, which demonstrate you can never have enough sequins, are sure to entertain.
