How to Sum up Phuket

When you look at Phuket to sum it up, the island displays a unique convergence between the classic culture in the Land of Smiles and a more westernized modern look that appeals to tourists. Along with that, you have a more multicultural city in Phuket where a variety of ethnics live in peace together. If you want an unforgettable Christmas, spend your day in Phuket old town and check out the Chino-Portuguese style buildings. Don't forget to taste the local Phuket foods. Phuket has two areas where it is famous. First, it is known for its sunny weather and breathtaking beaches, and second, Phuket is known for its tasty local cuisine. If you want pancakes in the true local style, check out roti pancakes.

Crystal-Clear Waters and White Sand Beaches

Phuket has garnered a certain level of fame for its white sandy beaches and its crystal clear waters. You have no better place in the world to have a memorable Christmas with your loved ones, and imagine an exchange of gifts or doing a toast of champagne on the beach. Celebration here makes sense. The best part about Phuket is how you can have your favorite Christmas meals at the best Thai food restaurants. Phuket is home to world-class cuisine, and it ranges in price. You can feel assured that you will find what you want for your family, and over the holiday, a lot of Phuket adds specials and deals to save some extra cash. Phuket is a great bargain destination to have a holiday. Before you choose a restaurant, however, be sure that you reserve a table ahead of time. The last thing that you want is to find out at the last minute that your favorite restaurant has been booked solid.

Kick Back and Enjoy the Show

While in Phuket, you have a wide range of possibilities for entertainment. This city has tons of entertainment venues, and their exclusive nightlife ensures that you keep a busy schedule. Traveling with the family, you could set some memories at the Phuket zoo. You could also enjoy yourself at the Siam Niramit, the Phuket Fantasea or check out the Cabaret Show at night. You could also check out the local Thai Kickboxing at the Bangla Boxing Stadium, which has become the national sport of Thailand. This deadly martial art has often been called the "Art of Eight Limbs" because the competitors use knees, kicks, punches and elbows to fight their opponents.

A Full Day on Christmas

You will enjoy a full day of fun and entertainment over Christmas, but your trip will only reach completion after you have spent the entire day with fun activities and having a great dinner. A great night's sleep will be the perfect way to complete your day. Aleenta serves an elaborate Christmas dinner buffet, where you can flavor your palette with a diverse selection of cuisine from around the world. It is the perfect way to get into the festive mood, and you will see a lot of your favorite traditional Christmas favorites. Along with that, the hotel offers some alluring special promotions.

Christmas Weather in Phuket

Over December, Phuket rids itself of the rainy monsoon season, and the rainfall drops from the highs that came during the monsoon weather. You have an average temperature of 27 degrees Celsius, but the weather ranges anywhere from 23 degrees Celsius to 31 degrees Celsius. During the month of December, the temperatures start to drop and cool down for the coldest month of January. That is when your average temperature drops to just 22 degrees Celsius. Another advantage of monsoon season ending is how the humidity drops from October's 90 percent to less than 70 percent.

When it comes to Phuket sunshine in December, you can expect an average of eight hours per day of sunshine, and that gives you plenty of time to spend outside over Christmas. If you are headed to Phuket a little before the Christmas season, you could take a Thai cooking class. Should you decide that you want a little pampering over the Christmas holiday, the traditional Thai massages would be a great way to unwind and feel renewed.

Fun Activities over the 2016 Christmas Season in Phuket

With the available activities, you have a variety of different choices from a ride in a speed boat to jet skiing to yachting and fishing. Whitewater rafting has also picked up steam, and you have diving sites in Phuket that are considered among the world's best. The region has crystal waters and breathtaking rock formations and reefs. Not to mention, the local marine wildlife is colorful and an interesting way to spend your day. On the west coast of Phuket, the area has developed a solid reputation for surfing, and while this is nothing compared to Waikiki, every surfer will tell you that the west coast of Phuket boasts some of the best surf in Thailand. Imagine waking up Christmas morning to go wakeboarding at Kathu waterfall. This is one of the most challenging and interesting ways to spend Christmas. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, the lake has two Sesitec Cable systems. You have one for beginners and one that goes all around the basin.

If you decide to holiday in Phuket, you will have no shortage of entertainment or memories this year. Phuket has both the western and the traditional Thai favorites, and why not spend a holiday immersed in another culture? You have a lot to see like the Kathu Mining Museum, and there are beautiful temples in Phuket like the Wat Srisoonthorn.

Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!
