Although many travel brochures will recommend a visit to the West Coast of Phuket, the South East is just as worthwhile. With its amazing views on the neighbouring islands and mangroves, charming fishermen villages like Rawai and not to miss activities like a visit to the Promteph Cape and the Old Town of Phuket, this side of the island has so much to offer. The most quiet area of the rather crowdy Phuket has stolen our hearts. And we’re sure our stay at The Vijitt Resort had something to do with that as well.
