The Area: Phuket, Thailand
While being an idyllic island paradise, Phuket also has a reputation for being a nightlife mecca and buzzing mix of markets, tuk-tuks and neon lights. But for those who prefer serenity and tranquillity over energy-fuelled days there is the south-east coast - a laid-back area brimming with natural beauty and all the traditional Thai experiences. Lavish spas, seafood restaurants and untouched islands politely compete for attention; while fishing villages let travellers explore a more traditional way of life.
Head to the scenic beach of Nai Harn, widely believed to be the best in the south and later visit Rawai for seafood on the beach or the busier area of Chalong Bay with its pier and myriad bars. From these points adventurers can set off on a tour to smaller islands where they can swim, snorkel or just relax on the sand.
Pack a camera and head to Phromthep Cape viewpoint to watch the sunset, or instead, drive up to the white marble Big Buddha for a picture-perfect moment.
