Due to the popularity of this destination, direct flights have been introduced from some of the international airports directly to Phuket International airport especially between November and April. However, most of the visitors prefer the conventional route with a stopover at Bangkok in Thailand and then boarding the available several times a day Thai airways flight. The good thing is that this flight is available 7 days a week. Alternatively one could opt for the 4 hour drive from Bangkok and then take a ferry ride. However, the ferry plans differ according to season. It is good to find out before you set out for the journey to avoid being inconvenienced.
Great variety of accommodation.
Among the places that one could be spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation in Asia, Phuket does not fall short. With a wide range of accommodation options, it is up to the visitor to choose. However, of all the choices that you may have, there is one that stands out. Not far from the airport and a 15 minutes drive from Phuket town is Kantary bay hotel (image by Kasemkij).
The Kantary bay in Phuket is different in that instead of the normal hotel rooms this hotel’s rooms come complete with a kitchenette, a living room and a private terrace with wooden floors. What is even more captivating are the services offered that include a gym, swimming pool, scenic gardens and even reading lounges. We of course recommend to compare all accommodations choices online before booking.
