Phuket Thailand is the most developed of the resort islands in the south of Thailand, one hour flight from Bangkok. Good infrastructure, with many top class hotels and restaurants, and tourist attractions both on land and at sea.
With a total diversity of scenery and cultures, depending, on the region, multi centre touring options within Thailand are popular. There are excellent air links between most of the major cities, as well as good roads. The following are just a few Tour ideas for Thailand and each can be easily modified to suit your personal requirements.
Anantara Resort and Villas Phuket will appeal to those who want spacious top of the range accommodation, a feeling of independence, yet with the reassurance of resort management and facilities.

Cape Kudu is attractive, has extremely comfortable accommodation, with the high service levels expected with the Cape & Kantary Hotel Group.
The Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket is one of the most established hotels in Phuket, recently considerably enhanced, with particularly attractive rooms and relatively newly opened pool villas facing the lagoon. The airport is 25 minutes away.
The Elephant Hills Safari Lodge is easily accessible from Phuket, Khao Lak and Krabi, a 3 hour transfer from most hotels. Khao Sok is the largest rainforest in southern Thailand. Dense jungle, Mangrove Rivers and lakes, limestone peaks, the area is incredibly dramatic. This is a true eco-experience offering you the opportunity to get up close and personal with elephants – washing them and learning their habits, as well as enjoying jungle walks and canoeing.
