Phuket International Film Festival is a monthly live screening film festival. The live screening takes place every month at different prestigious venues.

Phuket has emerged as a prime place for film production among the South East Asian countries. Phuket has a large Chinese influence, so you will see many Chinese shrines and Chinese Restaurants around the City. While the Chinese community is quite big, there are many other ethnicities bringing all their traditions and festivals from all over the world to Phuket.

Being a big Island, Phuket is surrounded by many magnificent Beaches such as Rawai, Patong, Karon, Kamala, and Mai Khao. Laem Phromthep view point is said to feature the most beautiful sunsets in Thailand.


Thailand being a land of eclectic cultures is no secret. But what might come as a surprise to some is that every place within the country has its own distinct culture that defines it. Phuket being the most popular destinations in Thailand as well as the world, for evidence of this. With arms wide open, Phuket beckons its visitors to come immerse themselves in the land's customs of warm hospitality, rich heritage and colourful traditions, which create an alluring atmosphere that is hard not to fall in love with. One of the most important aspects of the culture in Phuket is its elaborate tradition of performative arts.
