The island of Phuket has long been misunderstood. Firstly, the ‘h’ is silent. Ahem. And secondly, Phuket doesn’t feel like an island at all. It’s so huge (the biggest in Thailand) that you rarely get the sense that you’re surrounded by water, which is probably the reason why Ko (meaning ‘island’) was dropped from its name

Day 5: Departure
The route from Krabi to Phuket once again strikes the march of past formations which give Phang Nga it’s spectacular identity.

After passing Phang Nga itself, the drive turns south for the final run back to Phuket. En route you may visit Wat Tham Suwan Kuha before you get to your final destination.
