Going to Thailand on holiday has increased in popularity year on year and it has steadily grown into one of the world’s most desirable destinations. Phuket is a firm favourite of holiday-makers; it’s the largest island in Thailand and lies on the South-Western side of the country. With the inviting, turquoise water of the Andaman Sea, the delicious seafood and lush forest nearby, Phuket will dazzle you with its stunning scenery and welcoming local culture.

Traveller’s diarrhoea is one of the biggest problems faced in terms of holiday illness in Phuket. Hotel buffet-style restaurants can be quite problematic and holidaymakers can find themselves eating food that hasn’t been steamed or cooked properly, or eating salad and uncooked vegetables that could have been washed in contaminated water causing them to become infected. The buffet style nature of these restaurants will also mean there is a chance that other people may have touched food that you then go on to eat.

While popular, crushed ice drinks can also be a problem. You may not realise it at the time, but these could have been made up of contaminated water.
