Setting sail from Phuket

Phuket is Thailand's most popular tourist destination, and it's true that it can be crowded and overdeveloped in places, but it's not hard to escape the masses and be reminded why this idyllic island is known as the 'Pearl of the Andaman'. As well as a plethora of luxury resorts, Phuket has a charming old town replete with pretty Sino-Portuguese architecture, and acts as a jump-off point for exploring nearby islands and coastline. Koh Phing Pan, better known as James Bond Island, and Ko Phi Phi are breathtakingly beautiful, as are the limestone formations that surround the mainland town of Krabi.

Our tip

Spa treatments in Phuket are really something else, so treat yourself while you are here.

Arriving in Ho Chi Minh City

Still often referred to by its old name, Saigon, Vietnam's busiest city is much more westernised than Hanoi, though it still retains plenty of charm. Saigon was the capital of the South during the Vietnam War, and American-style capitalism has been embraced more enthusiastically here than in the North, with a clutch of shining skyscrapers standing as testament to Vietnam's surging economic growth. You can learn more about the city's turbulent recent history at the Reunification Palace and the War Remnants Museum, shop for souvenirs at the colourful markets, or take a trip out of the city to the fascinating (and claustrophobic) Cu Chi Tunnels, a vast network of underground passages excavated by the Viet Cong during the war.

Don't miss

Ben Thanh Market has an eclectic mix of wares. From the usual tourist fodder to kitchen utensils and everything in between, go there for the atmosphere rather than the shopping.

For once-in-a-lifetime tailor-made itineraries, Mundy Adventures specialises in expedition cruises to some of the most wonderful places on earth; places often only accessible by water.

Ways to make it better
Keemala, Phuket

Where to stay in Phuket

So much choice! For something a bit different, we like the Keemala, 38 villas each with private pool.

Around Phuket

To see the islands, make an early start, rent a long tail boat, and ask to go away from the crowds.

We think the Park Hyatt is a good choice.
