Phuket, hot or not?
What is Phuket
Phuket (ภูเก็ต), pronounced "Poo-get", is Thailand's largest island and also its second smallest province. It is 48 km in length, 21 km at its widest, and is located in Southern Thailand, on the west-facing Andaman Sea coastline, suspended from the southern tip of Phang Nga Province by a pair of short but substantial road bridges.

About Phuket elsewhere
"From Phuket Town there are frequent bus services to the other part of the island such as Patong Beach ,Kata-Karon beach, Chalong Bay, Rawai-Naihan beach, Seaport-Aquarium, Mai Khaw beach, Surin-Kammala beach."
"Holiday Inn Resort ,  ,is conveniently located just 15 minutes from Phuket town and standing in its own secluded grounds just a step away from the island's most popular beach, Patong."
"However, those after something of more lasting value will be tempted by the antiques and homewares on offer around Phuket town, some of which are an intriguing blend of old and new."
"Phuket Town's low-key attractions are mostly related to its colourful Chinese history and heritage, found in the Chinatown area on the north-western side of the city around Thanon Thalang."
"Date of travel: Sep 2006 Phuket town was a Â£8 taxi ride away from our hotel but this was a return fare and the driver will wait outside while you dine or shop or both for as long as it takes."
Phuket is among the most expensive places in Thailand.The island itself is beautiful, but quite tourist-infested. I recommend touring around the island with a motorcycle. Should the need arise, at Patong you can easily find all the usual vices.
I went to Phuket when I was really young. My parents took me there on our winter vacations (Northern Hemisphere). Despite this, it was really hot there and I really enjoyed it. I recommend staying at the Impiana Phuket Cabana Hotel. The property is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful properties in Phuket. It is right along the beach and the sunset is visible from sloseby upon a cliff where it is absolutely spectacular and beautiful. They probably changed a lot and made it better now, but even when I went there about 10 years ago, their "cabanas" were beautiful. The pool is simply spectacular.In addition, since Impiana is not a world-renowned name, so the prices there will also be more reasonable than say, the Sheraton.

I was there last year and the location of the hotel was fantastic. But I thought earlier, that there aren't as much tourists as are in other beaches...but there were SOOO many! That disappointed me. But I really loved the hotel and the view...and the breakfast was so tasteful: fresh fruits and so on...
