Issue No 14, 19th December 2010

Hello and welcome to this issue of Phuket Travel Secrets monthly e-zine

Phuket has an abundance of beautiful beaches, parks and offshore islands to explore, a rich history and culture to discover, along with fantastic dining and nightlife to enjoy.

The only problem is finding the time to see and do all that this island has to offer.

There is a wide range of activities and things to do in Phuket, offering visitors of all budgets, tastes and ages something to enjoy.

Go offshore and enjoy one of the many beautiful islands that surround Phuket, such as Koh Bon Island. Here you will be greeted by Dawn a friendly English Lady who owns and operates Bon Island Restaurant. Spend the day relaxing on the island and enjoy a beautifully prepared lunch only 15 minutes offshore from Phuket.

Traveling to Phuket has never been more affordable, with so many direct flights to Phuket, from full service carriers to budget airlines offering cheap airfares and the best travel deals.

When travelling to Phuket from December through January, ensure that you book your accommodation in advance as thousands of people come to the island for their annual holidays.

For the best deals on hotel bookings in Phuket, we recommend you have a look at Agoda to find big discounts and special promotions in Phuket. Agoda has the best availability coupled with the lowest rates all over Phuket and Thailand.

What’s on in Phuket in January 2011

On New Years Eve, join the locals at the colourful Red Cross Fair, try out some interesting local delicacies as well as shop for art and crafts. The festival will officially open at 5.30pm at the Saphan Hin Central Stage. Entertainment includes live music and dance shows. This is an event that everyone can enjoy, especially families with young children.

For boating enthusiast the Phuket International Boat Show will be held from the 6th to the 9th of January 2010 at the Royal Phuket Marina. Everything from super yachts to power boats, sail boats, speed boats and dinghies will be on display.

On Sunday 23rd January, join in and have fun at the Phuket Rubber Duck Race, where you will see two thousands yellow rubber ducks launched on a stream next to the Latitude marquee in the Laguna Phuket resort complex. There will be Dragon boat races, kayak races, a home-made raft race and just for the kids a cardboard box race.

Just like anywhere else in the world, New Year’s Eve in Phuket is a huge party. Pretty much anywhere on the island you will find lively events happening and most beaches will have some kind of beach party. In Patong and Karon you are sure to see fireworks and most other parts of the island too.

Whilst you’re enjoying your holiday vacation in Phuket, there is no need to worry about missing your favorite sports on TV. Head to Duke’s Sports bar at Kata Beach where you will be able to enjoy a cold beer and popcorn and watch your chosen sport live on one of their big screens. You will be assured of a great time with Karen and Mark and their friendly staff.

We would like to take this time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011.

We hope that you have enjoyed this issue of Phuket Travel Secrets e-zine.

Enjoy your travels
