Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand
Thailand's largest island sits just off the country’s west coast, in the glittering Andaman Sea. Phuket offers both cultural attractions and natural beauty. The influence of European and Chinese traders is best seen in the architecture of Old Phuket Town, where former mansions have become hotels, restaurants, cafés and shops. Outside the island’s main city, travelers will find a tropical paradise, with gorgeous white-sand beaches and warm, crystal-clear waters where visitors come to swim, snorkel and scuba dive. One of the prettiest places to take a dip is Phang Nga Bay while the Big Buddha and Chalong Highlands are popular sights.
