To have the best shopping times

If you are at Anantara Layan Phuket Resort the city is just a few miles away and Phuket is sure to offer you the best shopping experiences in the whole of Thailand. Mid-June to mid-August will be ideal for the best shopping moments because the discounts are bigger during this period.

The cool season is surely the best to plan your visit to the Phang Nga Bay. That is from December to January and this is because there is only a little rainfall during this season where the seas are generally calm.
