About Phuket

Phuket, the Pearl of the Andaman, is considered to be the end of the rainbow for travelers around the globe because of its exotic sun, sea, and sand harmoniously combined with the peaceful way of life of its people.

Sunburn

Sunburn easily occurs when tourists enjoy outdoor activities without proper clothing or applying sun protection lotion. The UV radiation on a sunny day in Phuket is very intense. Tourists should always put on sun protection lotion (SPF 15 or above) before sunbathing, swimming or doing other outdoor activities in which they are exposed to the sun. The sun protection lotion should be re-applied on the skin every 2-3 hours. Should tourists get sunburned, they should apply cool gel which can heal skin damage. Avoid sunbathing until the skin fully heals.
