It offers its fair share of adventure - but there's plenty of scope for relaxation, too. If you're hankering for a holiday that gets you away from the stress of everyday life and offers you plenty of pampering, Phuket is for you. Here are just some of the reasons why Phuket is so great for relaxation. Spas and beauty treatments aplenty Thailand's massage and treatment techniques blends the old and the new, and Phuket has an abundance of day spas and spa resorts for you to enjoy. There are all sorts of traditions to try, including herbal baths, meditation and massage as well as your modern-day beauty applications. If you're looking for a wholly traditional experience, there are various temples around the country that provide massage in its most authentic form. Try the Cheraim Spa Village, Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa, Banyan Tree Spa or the Aspara at Holiday Inn Resort Phuket - just to name a few! Try a hot stone massage, or head to the Spa at Movenpick Resort and Spa for a chocolate treatment package. Serene temples Recharge your batteries in a serene and spiritual environment with a trip to one of Phuket's temples. In and around Phuket, great options include the century-old Wat Chalong, Wat Khao Rang with its gold Buddha and Wat Srisoonthorn with its large sleeping Buddha. Sit back and watch the locals go about their worship and soak in the tranquillity and peace, and follow their lead. Remember to dress modestly for your visit. Beachside bliss Of course, one of the most relaxing things you can do in Phuket is enjoy its stunning beaches. White sand, turquoise waters and an endless supply of sunshine means you can spend the day enjoying the outdoors. Splash in the shallows or position yourself under the shade of a tree and read a book - whatever takes your fancy! Patong Beach is the most famous for tourists in Phuket, but head further south of the island to get a much quieter spot!
