Phuket expat living guides

November 2, 2014 in Phuket Info

Travelling to Phuket is all about fun in the sun, spending time at the beach, indulging in some nightlife and overall enjoying the tropical climate to the full. Phuket’s attractions have enticed many from other countries to return or extend their stay and make Phuket their home.

But living in Phuket is a different experience than travelling here, and there are certainly some frustrations and unexpected difficulties that could arise when settling in to the island. Happily, there are several resources available in English (and other languages) that can help guide you to all aspects of living in Phuket, from where to find a good dentist to navigating your immigration application to making new friends.

Here are a few resources that we’ve found useful:

Phuket 101 – ok, this is a travel guide, but handy for expats looking to discover all the best places around Phuket; run by a long-time expat in Thailand

Chickynet – a networking site for women in Phuket, with a forum, events guide and classified adverts Living Guide – a property website with a large expat-focused information section

Phuket Items for Sale – an active Facebook group with, you guessed it, items for sale. Everything from iPhones to furniture to clothing posted by members looking to sell their stuff.

Internations Phuket – the Phuket branch of a worldwide expat networking group with regular social meetups and events
