It is a lively 400-meter street near Patong Beach where cars are not allowed, so people can walk around freely. You can park your self drive car in the dedicated parking area. The street is filled with bright lights, street performers, stalls selling things, restaurants, shops, and bars. You will hear loud music and find shops selling cheap drinks, making the atmosphere happy and energetic. Restaurants and bars try to attract customers, and there are lots of entertainers around.

It is the main city there and it is famous for its old buildings, colorful street art, and the way it mixes Chinese and European styles from the 1800s. It is a great place to spend half a day wandering around. You can walk along streets like Dubik, Ranong, Rasada, Yaowarat, Krabi, and Thalang. Plus, every Sunday they have something called Phuket Walking Street, which is like a big market with lots of stalls and things to see and buy.

Phi Phi Islands: Phi Phi is a group of six islands not far from Phuket in Thailand. The most famous ones are Phi Phi Don and Phi Phi Leh. They have clear water and fun parties, great for a few days' vacation. There are four other smaller islands: Bida Nok, Bida Nai, Ko Mai Phai (also called Bamboo Island), and Ko Phi Phi Le, where the movie "The Beach" was filmed in 2000. Ko Phi Phi Leh also has the Viking Cave, where they collect bird nests to sell. The islands have tall cliffs, white sandy beaches, jungles, and beautiful blue water, like paradise. None of them have roads, and only a few people live there, so they are still very natural and untouched.
