7 Best Phuket luxury resorts near shopping


Phuket is home to gorgeous beaches, beautiful lush hills, great island hopping and your choice of local and international dishes. It’s also home to the largest and most modern shopping center in the south of Thailand, the Jungceylon shopping mall. Here you’ll find 200,000 square meters of international shops and restaurants to choose from.

Though many of Phuket’s luxury resorts do house some form of shopping on-site, whether it be a gift shop or small boutique, most will find that in order to find a good amount of gifts to bring home for you and your friends and family, you’ll need to visit a large shopping arena. Luckily you don’t have to travel far to reach the shopping mall as there are several top choice resorts nearby that offer you easy access to both shopping and the beach.
