You need your passport with you when you’re flying out with the UK. There are printers in the check-in area of Bangkok’s Airports, so there is no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone. Security can scan the e-barcode so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.
We recommend leaving plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself extra time.
What to expect in Phuket
Phuket is the pearl of the Andaman Sea and Thailand’s largest island. Soft white sand beaches hug a coastline dotted with curved green palms and sweet wooden beach huts. Although popular with tourists, Phuket has managed to retain an air of tranquillity and calm that radiates through its weather, smiling locals and its temples, bars and cute cafes and shops. Glamorous hotels are available alongside cheap beach-side huts as trendy cool clubs compete with chilled-out beach bars. Outdoor enthusiasts will love hiking through steaming jungles and National Parks, spotting elephants, boating up winding rivers and sleeping in tree-houses. Moonlit parties, spectacular sealife and deserted beaches make Phuket a magical destination.
Avoid visiting between September and October when the monsoon rains are at their peak. April to May is very warm but temperatures usually stay around 30°C all year round. July is windier and so an excellent time for surfers.
Phuket is cheap when you are there with tickets for attractions such as the aquarium costing from £1.90*. An all day snorkelling tour is under £20*. Eating in the resorts will cost more than eating locally when prices will from £2.00* for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
