Many people’s picture of Phuket is Patong (where the not recommended seedy nightlife is on offer). There are nearly a dozen unique and welcoming towns, all with sizeable foreign populations. The weather is tropically warm, and English is widely understood. Medical care is superb and costs 20% to 80% less than it would cost ‘back home.’ A tremendous selection of restaurants, cinemas, water sports, and a pulsating nightlife offer endless opportunities for entertainment. Phuket has something for nearly every budget, too.
