With its sandy beaches, blue waters, spicy thai cuisine and wide variety of thrilling
adventures like snorkeling and diving, Phuket, is unarguably the most famous and largest island of Thailand. The exceptionally warm sunny climate all year round, Phuket is the ultimate destination for adventure, relaxation and serenity. As a short one hour flight from Bangkok, Phuket is also very easily accessible. Here is a list of things you can do on your trip to Phuket:
● Always brimming with a bustling beach crowd, Patong Beach is the longest beach in
Phuket. Although it’s difficult to find a quiet spot, this place is more like a social hub
and the shopping activity would keep you occupied. The Amari Phuket, the best and
most luxurious hotel of Phuket, perches on the headland of the beach, overlooking
the sea.
● Adorned with palms and casuarinas, Kata beach is much more peaceful than the
Patong beach with lush hillsides on either ends hugging the beautifully curving bay. A
small islet right offshore the beach is a suitable spot for snorkeling. Rest assured if
you are hungry from all the thrilling snorkeling, you can eat local delicacies from the
stalls on the beach.
● Taking a stroll through Phuket Town with the very scenic bay, you can tour past the
bustling crowd into various hotels, massage parlours, restaurants, etc. The
infrastructure is vastly influenced by chinese immigrants with a slight blend of
portuguese aesthetic, providing a rather interesting contrast to traditional Thai styles.
You can visit the Sino- Portuguese shrines and temples like the Jui Tui Shrine and
visit the interactive 3D Phuket Trickeye Museum.
● To cover up the bewilderingly stunning seascape surrounding Phuket, an island tour
is a must! Organised tours are the best possible way to cover all the highlights, like
the 9 hour Phang Nga Bay Day trip from Phuket or the 8 hour Phuket to Phi Phi
island tour that proves to be an expert guide along with refreshments, transportations
and food.
● Thailand is one of the best places for you to complete your scuba diving certification
as the clear waters offer the best snorkeling and diving experience. Alongside
tropical fishes and colourful corals, sea turtles, manta rays, whale sharks and
seahorses can be spotted.
● The Phuket Buddha is the island’s most distinctive and impressionable landmark and
sits peacefully on top of Nakkerd hills between Chalong and Kata. Constructed in
2004 with white jade marble, this 45 meter high monument emits a 360 degree view
once you reach the summit. This place is rather peaceful and serene compared to
the rest of the tourist attractions.
● Venture out to the beautiful village of Rawai, to experience a more authentic side of
Phuket where you can have a glimpse of the Moken lifestyle, a local tribe of ‘sea
gypsies’ who root themselves to the islands of Andaman and Nicobar and remain
aggressively committed to their beliefs and customs. Most live a semi-nomadic life on
land while others live by the sea.
