Phuket is one of the first places people think of when they contemplate getting away from it all. For many years now it has been one of the world’s top tourist destinations due to the laid back nature of the Thai people and the stunning tropical locations. It’s an extremely affordable island to visit and an incredibly enjoyable place to stay. Some visitors come for the partying whilst others come for the outdoor activities and nature.
Relaxation is another draw card to Phuket. The beaches are filled with tourists who enjoy nothing more than just lying around, soaking up the sun. There are cheap massage parlors, fantastic restaurants and luxurious resorts everywhere around the island. The place really is a slice of heaven.
One reason people come here, that a lot of people aren’t aware of, is the rehabilitation and detox facilities. Just last year, the Lifeco Phuket well-being centre opened up in October. It’s the second largest centre of its kind and it provides an excellent program for detoxification, rehabilitation and therapy of all kinds.
There are many other retreats one can seek out around Phuket so the next time you’re here and you feel as though you need to clear your system, physically, mentally and spiritually, be sure to check them out, they’re just another example of Phuket’s many hidden treasures.
