Phuket is both an island (the largest in Thailand) and a province consisting of Phuket and about 30 smaller islands in the area.  Phuket sits far down the Malaysian Peninsula from the rest of Thailand, forming the western side of Phang Nga Bay.  This area has become, in recent years, one of the world's top beach destinations, often compared to Bali in Indonesia.  Contributor and drone pilot MartinD used a DJI Mavic Pro to shoot this remarkable aerial tour of Phuket on a trip to the tropical island in 2017.

Thailand's Phuket province has nearly 30 Buddhist temples, a testament to the religious sentiment of the island as well as to the country as a whole.  The most famous of these is the Wat Chalong Temple, which sits above the town of Chalong near the southern tip of the island.  Wat Chalong was built in the late 19th century in honor of two monks who led political struggles in the company at that time.  Contributor Raivig used a drone to capture the beauty of this important religious landmark from a drone.  

Drone Views of Phuket


Phuket, Thailand


Top AirVuz contributor Moadh_Bukhash put together this marvelous 4k DVOW Finalist drone video from the storied province of Phuket in Southern Thailand. Consisting of one main island (Thailand's largest) and nearly three dozen smaller satellites, it's Thailand's smallest province but also one of its most well known.  Having recovered by the devastation suffered by its western coast on the Andaman Sea from the great Tsunami of 2004, Phuket remains one of the world's most sought-after beach destinations.  

Around Phang Nga Bay


Welcome to Thailand :)

Robin Pusk...

Top contributor Robin Puskas put together this stunning video from the area around Phang Nga Bay in Southern Thailand.  Bouded by the province of Phuket to the west and the Krabi Province to the east, the bay is home to hundreds of small islands.  At around the 1:35 mark, you'll get a great shot of one of the most famous spots in all of Thailand: the tiny islet of Ko Ta Pu, sometimes called James Bond Island since it was featured prominently in the 1974 installment of the 007 series, The Man with the Golden Gun.  

Thailand's Second Largest Island


Amazing Koh Samui

Robin Pusk...

One of the most popular beach destinations in Southern Thailand is Koh Samui.  The country's second largest island, it lies on the opposite (eastern) side of the mainland from its largest island, the somewhat better-known Phuket.  While Koh Samui's interior is jungle, its beaches are some of the finest in Southeast Asia.  Contributor Robin Puskas used a DJI drone to create this mesmerizing aerial view of this bit of paradise in the Gulf of Thailand, which sits on the western side of the Gulf of Thailand.

Krabi's Railay Beach


Sunset on Railay

Christian ...

Railay is one of Thailand's best-known beach areas.  It is situated not far from the southern tip of the country, between the cities of Krabi and Ao Nang.  With stunning views looking out onto Phang Nga Bay, Railay is accessible only by boat due to the high cliffs surrounding the area.  In this video, top contributor Christian Cuvelier flew his DJI Phantom 4 Professional drone over the area at sunset, creating a stunning aerial view of one of the more iconic looking beach spots in all of Southeast Asia.

Phang Nga Bay


Thai Islands Reveal

Christian ...

Thailand's Krabi province is perhaps best known for the dozens of small islands which lie off its coast in Phang Nga Bay.  Top contributor Christian Cuvelier used a drone to create this epic continuous "reveal" shot of these beautiful islands.  James Bond fans may recognize this area from The Man with the Golden Gun (1974, #10 in the series) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997, #20). Phang Nga Bay "stood in" for unnamed "Red Chinese Waters" in the former movie and Vietnam's Ha Long Bay in the latter. 

Filming Location for The Beach


Koh Phi Phi in 4K


Thailand's Koh Phi Phi islands regularly appear atop lists of the best beaches in the world, especially since Koh Phi Phi Lee (the smaller of the two main islands) becoming the shooting location of the movie The Beach starring Leonardo DiCaprio in 2000.  Distinguished by large limestone rocks. the islands are situated in the Andaman Sea, in the Krabi province.  Contributor Agrippa907th used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to aerially capture these stunning islands as well as Railay Beach, which lies a bit to their north.

Wat Bang Temple, Krabi


Wat Bang Thong


Thailand is home to the world's second largest Buddhist population (after China), so it's no surprise that the country hosts a treasure trove of temples and pagodas from the world's third largest religion.  Some are old, some are of modern vintage, and some are very new like the Wat Bang Thong temple in the town of Ao Leuk in the (southern) Krabi province.  Actually, it's not quite finished yet, but it's close.  You can get a great aerial view of the temple in this drone video by contributor CMY.MEDIA.
