Bottom line is yes. If your arriving from London or leaving to go to Phuket HKT 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, Thailand, and leave your vape at home. Saves on the headaces.

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.

About Phuket

When flying from London to Phuket island in Thailand its good to know that more than 16 million passengers per year fly via Phuket International Airport in Thailand, 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 London, and have not been to Asia or Phuket island in 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 in Thailand 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 in Thailand houses 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 Phuket in Thailand.

Architecture and Cafes

It might seem inconceivable, but after flying in from London City Airport, and spending a few days laying on the beach on Phuket island, Thailand, 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, Thailand, or you are stying on the North West coast then also check out the Bangtao Beach Bar.

Phuket Activities

Phuket in Thailand Activities, Waterfalls and Rainforest Retreats

When you first arrive to Phuket island, Thailand from London you will probably associate your first days with postcard ready beaches and sunsets. If, however, you take the time to venture a bit inland, you’ll discover Phuket’s lush jungles, small villages and waterfalls. A trek through the jungles followed by a natural waterfall shower is as close to tropical bliss you can get.

One of the most beautiful places to visit on the island of Phuket is the Sirinat National Park located on the north coast. There are also over 100 alternative Phuket activities and tours from taking a magical Phuket tour with your own private local guide to ‘do it yourself’ activities such as: elephant sanctuaries, Phuket Aquarium, Botanic Garden, Tiger Kingdom, ‘Soi Dog’ or the ‘Gibbon rehabilitation project’ while on the island. Browse Phuket, Thailand activities ‘suggestions’ – each can be customized just for you to design your own tour.

Foodie Heaven

One thing’s for sure when you arrive from London – you won’t go hungry! Whether you’re looking to sample the spicy local cuisine or want to indulge in some fine dining, Phuket’s diverse food scene has more than got you covered.

Two Thai cuisines to try on Phuket island is either: Kaeng khae ( แกงแค ) or Kaeng phak siangda ( แกงผักเซียงดา )

Also try the street food, food stalls and local Phuket market food. The fried chicken, served with sticky rice, or local sate is a winner for a quick snack.

Phuket Spirituality

As is true for the whole of Thailand, spirituality and the Buddhist faith are an integral part of life in Phuket island in Thailand. While visiting from London visit at least one temple. It will give you a deeper understanding of this island which is so often characterised only by its tourist hot spots. The most iconic religious landmark on the island is the Big Buddha, which commands a striking presence in Karon. Another popular place to visit is Wat Chalong, a large temple located in Chalong on Phuket in Thailand.

If you’re looking to discover Phuket in 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.
