If it’s a premier beach wedding you’re looking for, Phuket is the most popular venue for destination weddings in Thailand. Pristine beaches, a buzzing nightlife, historical sites, and bustling night markets ensure that the biggest island in Thailand is truly the pearl in the Andaman Sea. Whether it is going to be a 5 star beach-facing resort or villa, a yacht wedding, or even an exchange of vows while perched atop an elephant, there are venues to suit every type and budget in Phuket.
With a large number of gorgeous beaches on which to say “I do”, it’s no surprise that destination weddings in Phuket are the most popular. Owing to the non-stop flights to Phuket International Airport (HKT) being only about 4 hours from major Indian cities, your guests can arrive directly to the island, without the snag of a layover. Wedding planners in Bangkok can put together every detail and inch of your event, leaving the couple and their guests to enjoy all Phuket has to offer in the meantime – thriving nightlife at Patong and Bangla, historical temples like Wat Chalong and Wat Khao Rang, and unrivalled shopping at the old town. Host a wedding reception in Phuket at its serene beaches – Patong, Kata, Karon and Nai Harn being the most loved. Or plan a discreet wedding at one of the banquet halls in Phuket. Visit the island from November to February for the best time. The official language spoken in Phuket is Thai with Thai Baht being the currency used as a mode of exchange.
Event management companies in Phuket offer a horde of things to do in Phuket. There are diverse locales to visit such as Ko Yao Noi, Ko Racha, and Ko Phi Phi, all accessible through the island’s airport. There a few things to prepare you for a nocturnal stroll down Patong Beach’s Bangla road. However, a sense of humour and an open mind are prerequisites. Engage in some light-hearted fun at the nightclubs, bars, and shows in Phuket in your downtime. Or drive up to the Big Buddha to witness an architectural marvel. Taxis, tuk-tuks, motorcycle taxis, and buses form the arteries of the city. Experience a Thai extravaganza at the FantaSea show or visit the sleepy old town of Phuket for its mesmerising shops and architecture.
