With the end of Thailand’s annual monsoon season, families all over the country are looking forward to the balmy weather and sunshine of the upcoming holiday season. It’s the perfect time to consider booking a luxurious condo for rent in Phuket.
Thailand has been one of the world’s most successful countries in containing the COVID-19 pandemic. But for the most part, the borders are still closed to foreign tourist. The economy of Phuket has been one of the hardest-hit regions of Thailand due to the border closure. Yet for all the tragedy of the pandemic, there are still some bright spots in and around the island.
By booking a condo for rent in Phuket, you’ll have the opportunity to be a first-hand witness to the rejuvenation of the region’s wildlife species.
Rebirth of Phuket’s Wildlife
Sirinat National Park on the west side, Marine National Park on the northern tip, and Khao Phra Thaeo National Park on the eastern side are three of the largest national parks on the island of Phuket. Between them, they offer jungle hiking trails, lush vegetation, pristine beaches, and refreshing waterfalls. But they’re also home to the region’s many wildlife species.
There has been a welcome phenomenon that has occurred all over the world due to the pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns. The world’s wildlife has flourished as a result of the drop in visitors to the national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. And Phuket has shared in this unprecedented resurgence.
What used to be rarely-seen species are now spotted regularly by visitors to the parks and wildlife areas of the island and surrounding area.
Undersea Wildlife Also Benefits
One of the highlights of booking a condo for rent in Phuket is the chance to hire a boat and explore the many stunningly beautiful islands of Phang Nga Bay. During your day’s outing, you’ll have the chance to swim and snorkel in the calm and warm, turquoise waters surrounding the islands you’ll visit. You’ll be astounded with the abundance of colourful marine life that has rebounded during the pandemic.
Thailand has made the conservation of these valuable waters a priority for a long time. The closure of Maya Bay and the Similan Islands due to overuse is a testament to this fact. With the pandemic also giving the sea-life of the region a chance to recover, the number of and variety of marine life means that a boat trip to Phang Nga Bay is also a chance to see these sea creatures as nature intended.
Make Phuket Your Destination for the Holidays
By booking a condo for rent in Phuket, you’ll be able to witness this welcome natural phenomenon first-hand in the jungles and the waters around the island. For an active family, getting out and spending the sunny holiday season in the fresh air exploring all the natural wonders of the region is a wonderful New Year’s gift after the misery and hardships of the pandemic of 2020.
