“Peace Blue Naiharn” is nestled in one of the most popular tourist areas of the tranquil Naiharn Beach south of Phuket Island. We are located at the center of Saiyaun village.

It is known to many as the number one viewpoint in south Phuket. Whether this is true or not is open for debate, but there is no question that Laem Phromthep offers magnificent views.

Fringed with casuarinas and palms, Kata Beach is a lovely bay hugged by lush hillsides at either end. Although it is still touristy, it's more peaceful than Patong Beach with less hawkers.

If you are hungry, you can grab a papaya shake or a snack at one of the beachfront stalls, and larger restaurants are within walking distance.

The soul of Phuket is here, for the island has a long and colourful history.

Wat Chalong Temple in Chalong Bay is the largest and most important temple in Phuket Island. The Grand Pagoda which is the dominant feature of the temple is said to contain a bone splinter from the Lord Buddha himself.

If you are a shopper or just want to buy some souvenirs to take back home, you must visit the Night Market in Phuket Town. There are literally hundreds of stalls set up within this tightly packed marketplace selling all sorts of things. You can buy most anything that you can think of and expect to get it at a very good price.
Phuket's longest beach was also once its most beautiful, until development and tourism turned it into a bustling hub of activity rather than a retreat from the world. Still, Patong is great for people watching, and part of the fun of Thailand is that (in addition to being a land of smiles) it is one of contrasts. You may not be able to find a quiet spot on Patong to read and contemplate life, but you'll find plenty of shopping and activity to keep you entertained. Many resorts are strung along the beach road.
The absolute spectacle that is Soi Bangla can not be explained, it must be seen for itself.
