No hol­i­day to Phuket would be com­plete with­out a day trip out onto the An­daman’s teal wa­ters to take in the dra­matic lime­stone for­ma­tions. Most tourists jump on an is­land-hop­ping cruise and head east to Koh Yao Noi and Koh Phi Phi’s white sands and crys­tal clear wa­ters – it was the set for famed back­packer flick The Beach – as well as north to Phang Nga Bay, where the most fa­mous site is Khao Phing Kan, an in­trigu­ing for­ma­tion fea­tured in the 1970s James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. Cruises vary in price, du­ra­tion and qual­ity, from old Chi­nese junks to lav­ish yachts. Pick one that in­cludes drinks, good food and kayaks so that you can weave around the cliffs and karsts.
