Branded as “The Pearl of the Andaman”, Phuket is one of the southern provinces of Thailand. The island of Phuket is considered as one of the country’s largest island together with its 32 smaller islands off its coast. Lying off west coast of Thailand in Andaman Sea, Phuket is connected by the Sarasin Bridge to Phang Nga Province to the north. To the east across of Phang Nga Bay, the next province is Krabi.
Phuket has been the number one destination in Thailand perfect for families, experienced divers, and backpackers. The 49 kilometer long island doesn’t feel like an island because of its size. It was formerly known as Thalang which is derived from the old Malay “telong” meaning “cape”. However, the location of the old capital which is the northern district of the province still uses this name. The island provides a great base for doing PADI courses, diving local sites through liveaboard adventure to the Similans or even beyond Myanmar, Burma.
Tourists can spot different underwater creatures, this include the regularly sighted Giant Manta Rays, the probably most talked about Whale Sharks, the 2 meter long Leopard Sharks, fantastic Hawksbill Turtles, the beautiful Black Tip Reef Sharks, large variety of Eels, Clown Anemone Fish, and the stunning Harlequin Shrimp. Believing to have the almost perfect camouflage system, Ornate Ghost Pipe Fish can also be witness as well as one of the coolest pattern Clown Trigger Fish.
Diving is possible between November and April. Traveling during the Monsoon Season from April to October is not advisable due to strong winds.
