The first quarter of 2011 will see the launch of a brand new and exclusive wellbeing sanctuary in Phuket called The Arcanum. Strategically located in a “hidden” location, this new resort will redefine the idea of secluded resorts. More than just being a paradise of sorts where no one can find you, the Arcanum also aims to focus on regenerating the body’s “natural engines”. Here, East meets West yet again.
The sanctuary promises to meld all the hospitalities of the East with the most advanced wellness methodologies of the West. Fitness and nutrition are also included in the regimen. When you sign up into their programs, your wellness schedule begins in London, even before your plane takes off. They will give your meal plans a complete makeover, and prepare you for a healthier and fitter lifestyle with exercises.
There’s a new competition being started by Thailand’s tourist authority. This latest competition is in a bid to raise awareness of the popular country which has been affectionately nicknamed the Land of Smiles.

You should know what is Phuket, everyone does nowadays! It is a magical picturesque Thai island in the Indian Ocean.
There are so many things to do in Phuket. Note only some of them: Phuket City and Patong beach. And observe carefully in Phuket two amazing phenomena: the large number of expats marrying Thai women and the large number of ladyboys (everyone calls them like this. An accurate translation is the English would be transgender. They are so many because of the permissive environment and religion in Phuket and in all Thailand. Beware the ladyboys, many of them are notorious pocket thieves!).
But Phuket is really a paradise on Earth and a major destination for millions of tourists coming from U.S., Europe, Australia and Japan. Today Phuket seems to be completely recovered after the devastating Tsunami from 2004, and the tourism is booming again. Tourism is actually the main income source for Phuket; other people on Phuket earn their existence from rubber plantations and tin.
Thailand attracts throngs of visitors from all around the world. People go to Thailand in search of sun, sea, sand and everything else in between. Famed for its beaches and islands, Thailand has some of the most beautiful scenery on earth. The most popular beach destination in Thailand is the island of Phuket, which is home to about one million people and 500 square kilometers of jungle, beach and concrete.
Phuket is said to attract something like five million visitors a year. While much of the unspoiled beauty of the island has been lost to development, there are still some serene, magical spots.
Phuket is a large, modern island. It has all the contemporary conveniences you could want, with everything from budget guesthouses and markets to luxury resorts and large shopping malls. Phuket is easy to reach, connected to the rest of Thailand by buses and the rest of the world by Phuket International Airport.
