Phuket is an island for tourists and if you like what it offers for tourists you will be fine. There are myriad bars, shooting ranges, go cart courses, lion shows, lady boy shows, golf courses and so on. If you are not into any of the above, this is also not a problem. You can find deserted beaches, small quiet villages, out of the way restaurants and roads that have not seen a car for days. You just have to know where to look.
Yesterday after school, I decided to go to the beach because it was 34 degrees centigrade, to-night after school I think I will play golf and this week-end take a bridge off the island to look at some limestone cliffs. Does life get any better than this?
