Phuket, Thailand

Interior Phuket

Besides Phuket Town, the interior of Phuket (also includes the eastern coast) is pretty much unvisited by foreign visitors. This fertile hilly expanse consists of mangrove forests, fishing villages, rubber and pineapple plantations, small Muslim communities and shrimp farms. The Phra Taew National Park is one of the last rainforest on the island and offers a nice escape from the tourist crowds.
