Phuket Thailand Travel Itinerary

If you are planning a trip to Phuket, here's our sample itinerary which you can use as a guide. You are most welcome to copy everything we did, but there's no guarantee that you will enjoy what we have enjoyed because when it comes to travel preference, it's all down to individual person's lifestyle. Do note that weather will be a great factor too. Phi Phi Island Tour is best experienced in good weather, no thunderstorm and big scary waves!

Here it is:

Booked via Asia-Euro Holidays Pte Ltd (Groupon Deal)
Length of stay: 4 days, 3 nights
Airline: Jetstar Asia
Accommodation: Sea Sun Sand Resort & Spa (4*) deluxe room with extra bed and daily breakfast
Note: We did not book any tour in advance. The private city tour and Phi Phi Island day tour were both a spur of the moment decision and turned out to be the best last minute decision we ever made.

  1. This itinerary would be very helpful to those making plans for a vacation there Che.

    PS....I won in the bet, despite all food feasts during holidays, I went back to school 2 lbs less, I even wondered why since I was over-eating so much like there was no tomorrow but I guess the result of all the baking, housekeeping and walking :)
