Phuket Travel tips
Getting Around in Phuket is easy. Most of the beach resorts are small enough to walk around and most hotels are located close to the beach, restaurants and shopping areas. If you'd rather not walk, or if your hotel is not on one of the main beaches, your hotel can arrange for a taxi or tuk-tuk.
Renting a motorbike in Phuket is perhaps the easiest and most convenient way of getting around the island and seeing the sights.
The nippy little scooters are extremely simple to operate and can dodge through the worst of the traffic, getting you from place to place in the quickest time, with ample parking space available almost everywhere
ATM in Phuket
ATMs are everywhere and usually work safely. In Bangla area of Patong, make sure no one watches over your shoulder but isn’t it just common sense?
NOTE: in Thailand, money comes out FIRST, then your card is ejected! A great way to forget your card in the machine after those 3 beers! NOTE: When changing money at a money exchange, count your money in front of the cashier, there have been some cases of missing money. The best exchange rate is usually in the non-brand exchange booths you will spot easily in most streets of main beaches.
Suntan vs Sunburn
Don’t take it lightly: sun in Phuket, even on a cloudy day is very strong. Do yourself a favor and don’t ruin your chances of a nice smooth suntan on your arrival day by overexposing yourself without sunscreen. Go easy for the first few days!
One of the things that makes a holiday in Phuket so pleasant is the friendly charm of the Thai people. Although very tolerant of tourists' behavior there are some customs that visitors should take particular care to observe :
- When negotiating for services or bartering for goods its best never to lose your temper or become aggressive. Acting in such a way may well achieve results in some societies but in Thailand, this behavior is not respected and usually will not get you anywhere. This is particularly relevant when dealing with Thai police or government officials.
- Never ridicule or talk disrespectfully about members of the royal family. Not only will it cause offense but it could land you in jail as it is against the law.
- Thailand is mostly Buddhist and although foreigners are welcomed at their temples (called "wats") respectful behavior and conservative dress is expected
Pack the Right Shoes and Clothes for Thailand
Phuket is hot all year round whether its raining or not so loose, breathable garments are the most suitable whatever the season.
Photocopy of Passport
Thai law requires foreigners to carry their passport at all times though, the reality is that most people keep it locked in their hotel's security box or safe. If you decide to do the same then carrying a photocopy of it will probably satisfy most public officials at least as an interim measure
