Phuket every time I listen about this island one thing that comes to my mind are there wonderful beaches and iconic views. This place is also rich in its flora and fauna. One should visit this place during dry season November to April preferably to experience indoor and outdoor attractions at their best. The capital town has a buzzing market which also offers a wide choice of dining and non-stop nightlife.
