Mini Guide for Phuket

The largest of Thailand's islands, Phuket is well worthy of it's name – the Pearl of the Andaman Sea, there is something for everyone there and it is a wonderful place to relax after spending a hectic few days in Bangkok as many visitors do. The capital is Phuket Town and although this is an interesting place to visit for a day, not many people choose to stay there as it is nowhere near as picturesque as other parts of the island.

Rhino Car Hire can set you up with a vehicle on arrival at Phuket International Airport.
