Your favorite area close to but not in Phuket

Posted by LTnHH on 24/5/2019 at 15:45


We are planning our Singapore-Thailand trip (Dec 2019-Jan 2020) and will be ending it by four days in the Phuket area--chosen because air connections back for US return are plentiful.

I am trying to find feedback on beach areas close to Phuket airport but not Phuket-it does not at all sound like our kind of place. We are in our 50's, not budget travelers but not overly extravagent; love a good beach, good food, and a few tourist options (maybe Elephant sanctuary? Or Tiger preserve?) And I would love to know your ideas if you could share. Khao Lak is one mentioned often, I see. We will be flying around Singpore/Thailand and so do not care to go to any islands (another trip, I hope).

We have tickets for afternoon return from Phuket to Singapore four days after arrival.
Thank you in advance for any information!

As you mention, Khao Lak is worth a look, particularly if budget isn't a big issue. Takua Pa District might be nice too. You could also consider a tour out to the Similan Islands, on a live aboard boat for snorkeling or diving.
