Phuket
Thailand’s largest island is an international magnet for beach lovers and serious divers, who enthusiastically submerge themselves in the Andaman Sea. Blue lagoons and salmon sunsets make for a dream-like atmosphere, and indeed, a vacation here can feel a bit surreal. Watersports are the most popular activities, though once you’ve had enough sun there’s still plenty to explore at the island’s aquariums, gardens, and Buddhist temples.

Closed Saturday and Sunday. Soi Dog Foundation is a registered charity that helps street dogs and stray cats. Visitors are welcome to take a tour of the facilities and meet the hundreds of dogs and dozens of cats, and after the tour you can stay for the day to play with the animals. Rather than a "dog pound," Soi Dog's shelter is an uplifting environment where dogs and cats receive lots of love and high quality care. less
