Beaches are one of the most preferred tourist hotspots for people around the world. Whether you’re a scuba diver, adventurist, water sports enthusiast, honeymooner or a family with kids who wishes to enjoy nature. On the downside, most popular beach destinations are insanely expensive and people are unable to enjoy the experience. This is where Phuket, Thailand comes into the picture.

Thailand is a home to exotic islands that offer a blend of serene beaches and beautiful rainforests at a very economical cost. It is by far one of the cheapest beach destinations in the world.
