1. What beaches are close to Bangkok？
Located only a short distance from Bangkok, Hua Hin is known as the Thai Royal Family's beach resort. It's long been a fashionable destination for a short beach tour in the tropical sun.
If you are looking to some wild night time, Pattaya is the place for you. During the day, the night owl can play on many islets in the neighborhood, such as Koh Samet and Koh Lan; they are very suitable for island hopping. When the night fall, the city will become the busiest party and club hotspot in the whole of Thailand.
2. Which is the best beach in Phuket?
Patong is the main beach on the west coast of Phuket. Patong has a variety of activities and nightlife, and is an ideal place to play and party, especially for young. At night, there is a busy nightlife in town with hundreds of restaurants, nightclubs and bars. If you come for party, stay no other place. If you're looking for a quiet location, it's quieter at the north end. There are thousands of hotels to choose from. The famous Half Moon Party is held on Paradise Beach which is only 10 mins driving distance from Patong Beach.
Kata Beach is the second favorite beach in Phuket after Patong. For families, it is a popular choice because it's less crowded and has a wide white beach and an incredible blue sea at the same time. Provide a lot of dinning, shopping and available to most of Phuket day tours.
Compared with Phuket's hotel, which is economic and merely on beach, visitors might find that they have the beach to themselves on Bangtao Beach. It's also one of Asia's most immense resort complexes, which host some of the most luxurious and largest resorts on the island such as Banyan Tree Resort, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket and Angsana Resort and Outrigger Resort.
3. How many days in Phuket is enough?
There are several must-do things in Phuket – Phang Nga Bay, Phi Phi Island, Phuket temples and Elephant Sanctuary. If you wish to do loads of stuff here 4 days in phuket are good enough. If you do have a longer time then you can cover some nearby islands.
4. Can I only stay in beach and island and not visiting Bangkok?
Yes, you can. The round-way flight from and to Phuket airport will save a lot compared with Bangkok inbound and Phuket outbound.
