Phuket – Things to do

Phuket Attractions

The wonderful thing about Phuket is that there is always something to do – on and off the island, come rain or shine, and regardless of your age and ability.
From chilling on your beach of choice to adrenaline activities and from romance to party revelry – the list of things to do is practically endless.

Many of the hotels have in-house spa’s which are just perfect for an indulgent treatment. Try your hand at some of the watersports available to you or perhaps take a class in Muay Thai Boxing, yoga or cooking.

When you are ready to explore further, discover the abundance of stunning beaches, delve into the rich history of Old Phuket Town and don’t forget to sample the fantastic dining and nightlife choices.

Phuket Old Town

Phuket Old Town

Phuket Old Town is a wonderfully historic part of the island to explore. There is a great quirky atmosphere here, charming old Portuguese styled buildings not found anywhere else on the island and plenty of quaint cafes and shops to visit. If you can, head there on a Sunday night for the vibrant night market. Phuket Old Town is not huge but it would be worth planning your trip before you go. Fortunately, there are many online walking tours you can download to ensure you make the most of your time.

Phang Nga Bay and James Bond Island

This beautiful journey will take you to an iconic spot of "Phang Nga Bay" and various other scenic spots along the way.

Snorkelling

The calm waters of the Andaman Sea are ideal for snorkelling particularly between November and April. We have found that Naithon Beach and Merlin Beach are some of the best spots.

Delicious Thai Food

A typical Thai meal emphasises lightly prepared dishes with strong, aromatic components and includes four main seasonings: salty, sweet, sour and spicy.
