The Phuket region
They call it ‘The Pearl of the Andaman’, and Phuket certainly is one of Asia’s loveliest holiday destinations. With it’s stunning west coast beaches, lovely tropical hinterland and excellent tourist infrastructure Phuket takes prime place in the guide books of Thailand. There are plenty of great natural and man-made attractions to see, both on the island in the adjacent coastal area.
Phuket became a part of the Kingdom of Thailand in the 13th century. Its destiny has always been shaped by peoples from all over the world, from Burmese invaders to Dutch traders. Its sheltered position in the Andaman sea made it a perfect stopping point for ships travelling from India to China and the influence of many cultures can be found all over the island.
Throughout its history Phuket has always been associated with ships and sailing and this maritime legacy is still strong today. Phuket is a highly popular port of call for sailors and ships from around the globe, from pleasure yachts to military cruisers. Although the three masted trading ships of yore are gone, they have been replaced by luxury yachts and charter boats, and regattas and boat shows are common occurrences. The stunning waters of the Andaman Sea are Phuket’s most beautiful feature and many of most alluring activities revolve around the water. Whether your interest is Scuba diving, snorkelling, sea kayaking or simply relaxing on the beach you will find Phuket a world class destination for all things aquatic.
The influx of tourists has brought prosperity and wealth to Phuket and it now boasts the highest per capita income of any province in Thailand. The infrastructure and facilities are excellent, offering all of the amenities available in any major destination. From five star hotels and restaurants to cutting edge hospitals and dentists, visitors to Phuket will certainly not be depraved of any of the modern conveniences.
Sun meeting sea in a tropical paradise with a long and diverse history; warm and friendly people with a tradition of welcoming visitors; modern conveniences with the Thai touch; its no wonder why Phuket attracts millions of visitors each year.
As the centuries wore on Phuket became important, not just as a way point, but for its wealth of natural resources such as gems, hides and spices. During the Age of Exploration, the Dutch, Portuguese, English and French all took an interest in the island. Subsequently, the tin mining boom in the 19th and early 20th centuries drew thousands of Chinese labourers to Phuket and they too left an indelible mark on the island’s architecture, culture and government.
Phuket’s diversity is reflected in its beautiful Sino-Portuguese buildings, its many Chinese temples and festivals and by the large Muslim population which co-exists peacefully alongside its Buddhist cousins. This tradition of acceptance and tolerance has helped pave the way towards making Phuket one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. One of the main reasons for this popularity is the warmth and friendliness of the people of Phuket who are known for their open attitude and ready smiles.
The Kamala area
Located north of the infamous Patong beach, Kamala is a quiet community that many visitors find more appealing than its noisy neighbour. At one time, Kamala was just a fishing village, and it has still retained this atmosphere of relaxation along with its unspoiled beach.
A few resorts are clustered up in the headland, offering unparalleled sea views. Meanwhile, behind the beach, many local eateries and bars have sprouted up, providing a good selection for visitors. The beach itself is clean and pretty, despite the development of the area.
Accommodation is mainly in small guesthouses and the night life at Kamala is relatively quiet and low key. Patong beach is only about 10 minutes away for those who prefer some action. Everything is laid on for you at this beach
Kamala is also home to Phuket’s only theme park, Phuket FantaSea. Although many people shy away from visiting a theme park while on holiday, this one is well worth a look. With a cast including 50 elephants, skilled performers and acrobats, and elaborate costumes and pyrotechnics, it provides a good evening out. The park also has a decent buffet along with games and shops to keep you preoccupied before and after the show.
Altogether this beach is a good place to stay if you want to be close to Patong but still be able to get a good night’s sleep when you aren’t out at the bars.
There are, however, two characteristics to Kamala. Firstly, it’s a favourite with the Scandinavian crowd, so don’t be surprised to find Swedish meatballs on the restaurant menus! They’re provide agreeable company, and Kamala has a well behaved atmosphere with quiet friendly pubs. If you want authentic fusion Thai food with nice cold beers or selective wines, or just a good cup a coffee, and in the same time you can email your vacation stories via Wi-Fi Internet at G_one Café.
The beach itself isn’t as long as Patong, but substantial none-the-less and most of it not spoilt by resorts fronting the water. A road runs along part of the southern end of the beach, the middle section has a park and Tsunami memorial and the Northern section is completely wild with casuarina trees. In all Kamala has a pleasant villagey feel contrasting with the commercialism of Patong and Karon.
How to get there

Phuket is certainly on the international jet set map and has become one of Asia’s most visited destinations. Its international airport receives flights from many Asian cities and selected European airports. The island is also connected to the mainland by a causeway and is easily reachable by bus or car. The rail network, however, passes through Surat Thani province 100kms north and a transfer is needed.
The most convenient gateway to Phuket is the International Airport, located at the Northern end of the island. It receives more than three million passengers a year and is fairly well equipped although a little small to cope with its growing popularity. Flights arrive from Bangkok (17 a day), Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne and as far away as London.
The airport is a 30 minute drive from Kamala. There are officially sanctioned airport limo services available and conventional taxis can be caught from the far side of the car park (5 minute walk), where a 100 baht levy is charged and the taximeter is used

Me and my parents spent a week at the Kamala Regent and found that the accommodation was ideal for a quiet vacation but it still had the main amenities in walking distance close to where we lived. There is also a van that runs at various times during the day to take you down to the beach (check at the information office for times). The apartment was clean and had the main modern conveniences, most importantly a great air conditioning system as it was 30C+ everyday we were there which also meant we used the private rooftop pool a lot even at night! The accommodation is ideal for most tourists especially for those who like the idea of getting away from it all in the evening as it is a great place to relax. One slight negative I would suggest is that it would be nice to have some more chairs on the roof terrace, apart from that it was ideal. Thanks.
Thank you very much for your review. To add some chairs was suggested by other guests as well, so we decided to go big and buy plenty of vases with a variety of plants and flowers, and five lazy chairs with small table on top of the two sunbeds with table already there, so I hope next time you will find the roof terrace a great place to spend your day.

We were lucky to be able to rent Jaap's Luxury penthouse in Kamala Beach during our visit to Phuket. We have been living in Phuket on several occasions and I must say that Jaap is one of the nicest landlords I have met. From you place the booking until you leave, he is very attentive and informative about big and small stuff, everything you would like when renting an apartment from a stranger. My wife, daughter and I can highly recommend Jaap as a landlord and not to forget the apartment is awesome and situated in a really nice and calm compound close to Kamala Beach. We will defintely use this place next time we go to Phuket!
