Whether you are travelling alone or with your partner, you will undoubtedly be drawn in by Phuket’s natural beauty and majestic atmosphere. And if you are travelling alone, you will fall in love with yourself while walking along Phuket’s white sand beaches, swimming in crystal clear water, and otherwise absorbing the entrancing culture.
Maybe you are seeking the perfect honeymoon destination. Maybe you just want a romantic vacation in Phuket, or maybe you just need a beautiful and relaxing holiday. No matter the case, this article will help you plan your trip Phuket, Thailand.
Finding the Best Flights to Phuket
Travelling in the coach is the cheapest option, and when you fly with a great airline, even the coach is extremely comfortable. Booking a cheap flight to Phuket is all about finding the right combination of airlines and layovers between your origin city and Phuket. If you are flying from Chicago, for example, expect to pay $1,299 USD for a round trip ticket. In this example, Etihad Airways carries you all the way Abu Dhabi for a layover, and then on to Phuket. It’s nice to fly with just one airline, although not necessary. Etihad Airways is an extremely comfortable ride, but do some research to figure out which airline you like best.
Romantic Hotels in Phuket
Hotels in Phuket really finalize the romantic experience. Create the perfect fairy tale at the Movenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket. One of many Phuket hotels known for its romantic and luxurious atmosphere. On its exterior, this hotel features traditional Thai accents. Inside, experience modern design with royal Thai undertones. Perhaps the most romantic elements of this hotel are the tropical garden, complete with a sapphire swimming pool, the charming candle-lit outdoor restaurant, and soothing spa. This tempting hotel is only one of many beautiful hotels in Phuket that inspire romance.

Romantic Things to Do in Phuket
Start at sunrise and make your way to the Wat Chalong temple in Phuket. Be greeted by monks that lead you inside the beautiful temple for a prayer or quick tour. Grab breakfast at the Delish cafe, for a warm and familiar Western breakfast, or check out Kanom Jeen for an authentic local Thai breakfast. In the afternoon, check out the Kok Chang Safari Elephant Trekking for a beautiful tour of Phuket from the back of an elephant, featuring a romantic viewpoint of the ocean. This is the perfect place to watch the sun set. An alternative sunset destination is the Mai Khao Beach, a tourist free, deserted beach.
Finish your night with a stunning seaside dinner, at the La Gritta. After you have experienced Phuket’s luxury hotels, spend a night Similan Island or Racha Island. Romantic beach bungalows are simple, but air conditioned and comfortable. Anything can happen, as the island and the ocean are all yours!
