Is there a smoking lounge at Phuket International Airport?

Bottom line is yes. If your arriving from Aktau or leaving to go to Phuket island airport simply go to the departure lounge, after immigration, and its by a small coffee shop. Be warned. The smoking room is very small and even before you lite up it feels like you have already had 5 cigs 🙂 VAPERS BE AWARE! Vaping (E-cigarettes, vaporizers, vape pens, atomizers, and electronic nicotine delivery systems) is still banded in Thailand 'so say' due to health issues, but in reality due to tax reasons. 'On the spot' fines, or threats of jail time by local Thai police, and by tourist police, can be en-forced. IF you do bring you vape to the island of Phuket do NOT put it in your hand luggage, and ONLY vape in private. If you do vape outside and then get stopped, and fined, ask for a police report. That should be fun? Bottom line is to 'just buy cigarettes' while on Phuket in Thailand, and leave your vape at home. Saves on the headaces.

Alternativly, and suggested, you can buy return cheap flight tickets from Phuket in Thailand to KL, Malaysia and spend a few days looking around doing the tourist thing while getting a 3 month visa at the Thai Embassy. A few things to note: A) Make sure you fly on a Monday or latest Tuesday so you get to the Thai Embassy no later than Wednesdday early morning. The reason is it takes 24 hours between applying and then getting your passport back. If you apply too late in the week you may have to stay the weekend also due to the Embassy closes the weekends.

About Phuket

When flying from Aktau to the island of Phuket in Thailand its good to know that more than 16 million passengers per year fly via Phuket International Airport (HKT), most flying in to enjoy a wide range of tourist services, natural beauty of the world famous Phuket beaches and fascinating tourist attractions.

If you live around Aktau, and have not been to Asia or Phuket, Thailand before, you are likely thinking about Phuket island’s fabulous beaches, sunsets and parties on the infamous Bangla Road in Patong. You might think you have Phuket island all figured out, but as it turns out, the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ has more than a few tricks hidden up its sleeve. Most visitors don’t even see the real Phuket while others buy Phuket island in Thailand Villas and make Phuket their home. Either way. Make sure you make the most of it by getting off the beaten track on Phuket is going to involve hiring your own personal driver or transportation (motorbike or jeep) for the day, or week, then driving, and hiking, over some off-road tracks. Obviously there’s a bit of effort involved and, more than likely, a fair amount of perspiration. But the reward when you get there is often the best uncrowded viewpoints, villages and beaches on the island of Phuket.

Architecture and Cafes

It might seem inconceivable, but after flying in from Aktau Airport, and spending a few days laying on the beach on Phuket, you might start craving for a change of scenery. A day trip into Old Phuket Town offers a nice break from the beach shacks on the coast. The Old Town offers an inspiring blend of Sino-Portuguese and Chinese influences and today, the walls are also a canvas for funky street art. What many people don’t realise is that the Old Town is not just a historic relic but a living and breathing community of creatives and coffee or wine lovers. If your travelling around Phuket in Thailand, or you are stying on the North West coast then also check out the Bangtao Beach Cafe.

Phuket Spirituality

As is true for the whole of Thailand, spirituality and the Buddhist faith are an integral part of life in Phuket. While visiting from Aktau visit at least one temple.

Another popular place to visit is Wat Chalong, a large temple located in Chalong on Phuket, Thailand.

If you’re looking to discover Phuket, Thailand off the beaten path you might also want to visit ‘The Shrine of the Serene Light’ in Phuket Town. This Chinese temple offers a colourful break from the Thai wats. The shrine used to be a real hidden gem, as the entrance was carefully hidden off in a tiny alley. Now you can easily find the temple thanks to its new striking entrance, but relatively few tourists still make their way here.
