Phuket has grown quite a bit since I first visited in 1989. No longer a quite little village with pristine beaches but a vibrant travel destination that will never let you forget you are in Thailand. The beach is awesome, but take time to go explore the city and back streets. Have a shirt, suit or new dress made just for you. It is fun and still inexpensive. Last but not least, get a Thai massage every day - yes every day. There is nothing better weather on the beach or in one of the local massage shops. For many who have never been it can be a bit scary but go with the flow and enjoy. You will be chillaxin in no time!
