Phuket Encounter Lonely Planet
The Phuket Encounter guide gives you twice the city in half the time. You can pick & choose your Phuket encounter, from plucking rock lobster fresh from a long-tail boat at Rawai's fish market to drifting to sleep in the shade of coconut palms on deserted Ko Yao Noi. Or maybe you're more inclined to abandon yourself to the cocktail-fuelled chaos that is Phuket's Old Town after dark or spend time gliding your kayak across translucent waters on a night cruise through limestone caves.
This pared-down number is ideal for quick trips - it's less accommodation, more neighbourhood highlights and the best of local knowledge.
