Top things to do in Phuket

PhuketWat

Wat Chalong

Wat Chalong is one of the most famous temples in all of Thailand and is the largest on Phuket.

The main building in the complex is three storeys high and boasts views of the area from its top levels. Both the outside and the inside of the temple have incredibly intricate details that are sure to impress.


PhuketBigBuddha

Big Buddha

The Big Buddha is an important monument on the island.It’s 45 metres tall and rests on top of a mountain which means you can easily see it from afar.

The base of the Big Buddha provides an excellent view, offering 360 degree views of the island and ocean.


PhuketOldPhuket

Old Phuket Town

Though Phuket is home to flashing lights and suntan lotion, it also offers a quieter side in Old Phuket Town.

This area comes alive at night with different night markets throughout the week, but during the day, you can stroll past the colourful colonial-style buildings.


PhuketThaiDance

See a traditional Thai dance

For a night on the town, head over to Phuket FantaSea for a Las Vegas-style show. The cultural theme park is filled with shops, games and even the chance to ride an elephant.

Dine at the buffet before the show and participate in the entertainment. The show itself involves elephant performances and traditional Thai dances.


PhuketSimilan

Similan Islands

Take a speedboat to the Similan Islands for a stunning experience. It’s one of the top 10 most interesting diving spots in the world and features crystal clear blue waters.

Snorkel, relax on white sand beaches and enjoy lunch on this day trip.


PhuketLadyboy

Ladyboy show

The Simon Cabaret Show is influenced by Thai culture and traditions and features the famous ladyboys of Thailand.

For an evening of musical entertainment and sparkle, don’t miss a seat at the Simon Cabaret Show.


PhuketJamesBondIsland

James Bond Island and Phang Nga Bay

Made famous from the 1974 film The Man With the Golden Gun, many flock to James Bond Island to see the iconic beach used in the film. The small bay makes for a quick stop to take advantage of some great picture opportunities.

Phang Nga Bay is close by and is often included in day tours. It features limestones mountains and caves that you cruise through on a longtail boat.


PhuketPhiPhiIsland

Phi Phi Island

Not far off the coast of Phuket is Phi Phi island which features picturesque views of limestone mountains and bays surrounded by vibrant blue waters.

Snorkel to see coral reefs, visit Monkey Beach to hang out with the animals and bask in the sun at Maya Bay.

If you’ve seen the movie The Beach, then you’ll recognise the view from the Maya Bay beach.
