Flights to Phuket Airport
Flights to Phuket Airport are your ticket to white sands that squeak beneath your feet, wide smiles from saffron-robed monks, and street woks that sizzle from sun-up to sundown.
Flights to Phuket Airport touch down on Thailand’s biggest island. If you decide to stay put here, you’ve got plenty of options in terms of beach scenes – everything from supercharged Patong Beach to quiet Mai Khao, where a virtual vacant sign hangs over its 11-kilometre stretch of sand. Look to the mainland, meanwhile, and Krabi and Khao Lak vie for your attention. Krabi’s coastline is dotted with desert islands, which are contoured by cliffs, beaches and coconut groves, while Khao Lak teams an enormous belt of white sand with 3 world-class national parks. Plus, flights to Phuket Airport put you tantalisingly close to Bangkok. The capital is about an hour and 15-minute internal flight away, and lures people with its meditative wats, holy shrines and chaotic markets.
