& Western Thailand

Phuket is the ideal hub for travellers who want to explore Thailand's southwestern islands: Koh Lanta, Koh Phi Phi, Krabi, Railay and Khao Sok National Park are all within easy reaching distance. And with jaw-dropping beaches and the best selection of hotels, hostels, restaurants and nighlife in southern Thailand, there's enough to keep every beach-bum occupied for a week or two. 
Railay Beach

Get away from Phuket: Nearby attractions

Want to get yourself off? Phuket, we mean. Phuket is the ideal beach break destination since it sits in such close proximity to so many other must-see Thailand destinations. Take a guided adventure around Khao Sok National Park, cast away to Koh Phi Phi (the location where The Beach was filmed), or grab a beer and chill on Koh Lanta. Here are our four favourite destinations near to Phuket...
Koh Phi Phi
When you close your eyes and picture yourself in Thailand, do you see Leo, and hear Moby echoing in your head? This is the place. The Beach! Koh Phi Phi Lei island is the paradise where the original Hollywood blockbuster was filmed, whereas on neighbouring Phi Phi Don, you'll find a buzzing backpacker town, great bars, cheap food and dive centres. 
Khao Sok National Park
A three hour drive inland from Phuket lies a true Thai hidden gem. Khao Sok is home to insane limestone cliffs, turquoise blue lakes surrounded by jungle, floating bamboo cabins you can spend the night in, and incredible wildlife! 
James Bond Island
Phang Nga Bay
Phuket's surrounds have played location to more movies than just The Beach. Phang Nga Bay, otherwise known as James Bond island due to it being the location of one of the Bond films, is a gravity-defying, top heavy karst formation which is easily reachable on a day-trip. 
Any backpacker worth their salt(y hair) will be able to tell you that the Krabi province, around a two hour drive from Phuket, is a must. Gorgeous little Railay offers more amazing karst formations and crystal clear waters than you could dream of, awesome caves, lookout points and rock climbing, a thriving hostel and bar scene, and Phra Nang beach, regularly voted the best in the world.

When is the best time of year to visit Phuket?

Like any tropical island, Phuket swings from scorching hot and dry, to rough-watered and rainy throughout the year. From November 'til April, Phuket and all of the rest of the western islands on Thailand's Andaman coast stay hot and dry. Brave it between May and October, and you'll experience a much quieter Phuket - meaning you'll find cheaper accommodation and have the beaches to yourself. September is usually the rainiest month in Phuket.
