Trade the dull gray of your office cubicle for the brilliant blue of the ocean! Book a trip to one of South East Asia’s best beach havens, Phuket province. Whether you’re up for a wild water adventure or an easy, breezy sunbathing day, make sure you’ve packed your essentials.

1. Scuba Diving by Maiton Island

SNORKELLING: Maiton Island, Phuket
SCUBA DIVING: Maiton Island

What to bring: Rash Guard

If you’re going island hopping and diving, be sure to wear a swimsuit that’ll both protect you from the sun and waters, but still let you move freely. Opt for something like a cute rash guard!

James Bond fans are in for a treat: Phuket was the setting of the hit 1974 Bond movie, “The Man with the Golden Gun.” Paddle out into emerald waters of Hong Lagoon to get the best view of what’s now been nicknamed ‘James Bond Island.’ This comes right after a hearty buffet lunch by Koh Panyee, the local fishing village.
