Phuket, Thailand is one of the biggest island in Thailand’s Southern province. The island has many neighboring tropical islands. Islands are becoming major attraction spots among the locals and tourists. Lovely beaches, inexpensive attractions, serious diving spots, best street food and luxurious resorts and many more activities whereas a tourist you can enjoy. That’s why you should plan to go there in your coming summer vacation.
Traveling to Phuket will cost you the same amount as travelling to Bangkok. But sometimes staying cost is little bit higher than Bangkok. Phuket has so many world class resorts and luxury hotels to relax and to hang out with loved ones.
Know about Thai Baht
Traveling Thailand is very affordable with less money. Many tourists know about it and always wanted to spend few dollars to do many things. When you compare Thai Baht to your local currency you can see the difference in most times. We went to Thailand when we were in Singapore. There was a considerable currency gap between Singapore dollar and Thai Baht back then. That was good for us and we could do lots of things from few Singapore dollars.
1USD = 33.1 Thai Baht
