Thailand's largest island, Phuket, lies on the west-facing coastline of the Andaman Sea and is connected to the Phang Nga Province by two road bridges. Though the island once served as a stop on a major trade route between India and China, Phuket is now best known for its plethora of amazing beaches. Due to Phuket's popularity as a premiere travel destination, it's best to make your travel plans in advance with ebookers to get the best deals on airfare, hotel rooms, and car rentals. You'll be arriving at Phuket International Airport, located roughly twenty miles from the centre of Phuket City. As the major hub of Thai AsiaAir, the airport is served by many domestic and international airlines.
If you arranged a rental car in advance with ebookers, you can pick it up at counters located on the north and south ends of Phuket International Airport's arrival hall. The transportation service counter is also located in the arrivals hall, and there you can find bus schedules and information about public transportation. You can also arrange for a limousine or chauffeured car into Phuket City at the limousine counter in the arrivals hall. The public airport bus picks up passengers outside the departure terminal and provides safe, air-conditioned transport into the city.
Phuket has a hot and humid tropical monsoon climate, which means that eight months out of the year are wet and rainy. The best time to visit is during the dry season that spans from December to March. Due to Phuket's location near the equator, temperatures remain stable year-round, with temperatures that range from 24°C to 32°C. You should include cool, light clothing and an umbrella when packing for your trip, since precipitation is common even during the dry season.

Many travellers enjoy Phuket's range of sporting activities, including kite surfing at Nai Yang in the summer or Chalong Bay in the winter.
