Phuket is all about luxury, resorts and massages. Watch the sunset over the Andaman Sea, soak up some sun and get a Thai massage in Phuket! Laze around on white sand beaches, swim in clear waters of Nai Harn beach or go snorkelling and windsurfing at Kata beach. Surin beach is a great place to spend the evening with its bars, restaurants and clubs. If you’re looking for a quieter holiday, visit the lesser known Nai Thon beach. Choose from water skiing, parasailing, boogie boards, sea kayaks and scuba diving and you won’t want for more in Phuket. You could also visit the Native Handicrafts Center, the Phuket Butterfly Farm, Phuket Orchid Garden and Thai Village or the Chana Charoen Crocodile Farm. One of Thailand’s most beautiful islands, Phuket lies 870 kilometres south of Bangkok and has a rich history, a variety of marine life and dense tropical forests. Stay at the beachside resorts and enjoy a vacation in the lap of luxury. For a real flavour of local life, stay in Nipa palm thatched rooms. You could also board an ocean cruise ship and pamper yourself with some spa treatment and a Thai massage. Experience the luxuries of a vacation at this beach paradise.

Our tips for Phuket

  • Don’t settle for Patong. While many travellers opt for accommodation nearby the central Patong beach, for the best Phuket sightseeing experience, head to the quieter (and much more picturesque) beaches further south. Our favourites are the charming Nai Hahn and Kata Noi beaches.
  • Say Wat. Most of the Thai population are Buddhist, and one of the most amazing things to do in Phuket is visit a local Buddhist temple, known as a “wat”. While foreigners are more than welcome, be sure to behave respectfully at all times and dress conservatively.

Good to know

If you’re after a beach holiday, you’re best bet is planning your Phuket tours for the months of December and January. These month’s promise a perfect climate where maximum sunshine and minimum rainfall combine, so when considering what to do in Phuket, and when to do it, keep December and January in mind.
