If you are coming to Phuket, no need to limit yourself to the confines of the island. Within a couple of hours drive or boat ride are some amazing places. Phuket has many beautiful areas, but just off the island are the amazing limestone karsts of Phang Nga and Phi Phi, and the huge Khao Sok National Park. Explore!
