For some travellers, it is very easy to get caught up in the midst of hotel life without realising the experiences certain destinations have to offer outside the hotel.
Phuket, also known as the beating heart of Thailand, offers curvaceous coastlines of stunning stretches of beaches and a nightlife like no other; with myriad ‘bucket list’ experiences both on and off the mainland.
Hotel Indigo Phuket Patong, a new stylish hotel offering a unique retreat in the electrifying neighbourhood of Patong, has created an insider’s guide to the top five islands to experience within minutes from Chalong Pier, Phuket – a 30 minute drive from Patong Beach.
Any guest who is wanting to organise their island trip is encouraged to visit Hotel Indigo’s Neighborhood Gallary where a Neighbourhood Host will help to unlock the many island experiences Phuket has to offer.
