Phuket information - travel & local guide
Brian Ferry March 2012
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand. About 540 square kilometres, from north to south is about 50 kms and can drive around the island. Just over an hour by jet from Bangkok or Singapore, and with daily connections to most major Asian airports, Phuket is ideally situated for a short break or a relaxing vacation.
Year-round temperatures on Phuket vary between 21-34 ˚C. Water temperatures range from 26-28˚C. The high season, roughly November till April, brings consistently sunny weather, cool breezes and low humidity, with moderate seas.
