Thailand - Phuket & Andaman Coast (Chapter)
This is the Phuket & the Andaman Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Thailand guidebook.
The Andaman is Thailand’s turquoise coast, that place on a ‘Travel to Paradise’ poster that makes you want to leave your job and live in flipflops…forever. White beaches, cathedral-like limestone cliffs, neon corals and hundreds of jungle-covered isles extend down the length of Andaman Sea. The catch is, the destination is no secret and the beaches are becoming more crowded. Flashy resorts are pushing out the bamboo shacks and authenticity now hides in the backroads. But your poster dream is still here – if you’re willing to look.
- Cavort with curious puffer fish amid the fiery-coloured coral of the Trang Islands
