You will find after many foreigners have had the taste of Phuket Island they will leave there country to come and live on this side of the world. Thailand in general is a very open minded the Thai people are always thinking positive and have a humorous spirit, adapting to there culture is not difficult at all as, I have experienced in the past 3 years that, I have been living in Thailand.

Phuket Island is quite a huge island and has all the infrastructure needed to make this your home, it has a international airport that has flights coming in direct from other countries without having to stop over in Bangkok airport and this makes flying to other countries a breeze and your only one-and-a-half-hour flight to Bangkok city, if you wanted to go and visit the big smoke for the weekend. Phuket Island has been welcoming foreigners for decades now, with a only a population of almost 600,000 on this island 115,000 of them are expats that have made this there home and it's easy and way more affordable, to own a slice of your own paradise here.

What I love about Phuket Island, it's only around 48km from one end to the other end of this island and is only 20k wide you could do this on a day trip marking a couple of stops at some hidden beach or cocktails and lunch at Wassa Homemade Bar on top of the mountain overlooking Phuket city or you can get of the beaten track and do a bit of exploring that is the great thing about driving around this island there is so much to see numerous beaches, look out points with mountain rest bars all around island.

Of course Phuket is not just all about stunning beaches, there are mountains to climb, jungles to be explored with gushing waterfalls, national parks and if you are into golf there are 10 golf courses for every level golfer some even beachfront golf courses. And if you have no time to go to the jungle the wildlife will come to you πŸ˜ƒ

If your living away from the tourist areas out from Patong Beach and living in Phuket Town which is only 12km away from Patong Beach, it is so much more cheaper to live in Phuket Town and you will be considered as a Thai local.

Phuket Town is very charming and colorful, it has more of a French, Portuguese style with many beautiful exciting little cafes and restaurants where you can take a break for lunch or dinner and do a little people's watching at the moment they have decorated the town to make it look more like a Halloween town because Thailand has opened it's doors to tourism they want to welcome them to the Halloween Town of Phuket.
