There’s something about Phuket that just keeps people coming back for more (or wishing they could)! Thailand’s largest island packs a punch with palm-fringed beaches, buzzing markets, crazy nightlife, and plenty of cultural and adventure activities. Since there’s so much awesome stuff to do, we’ve put together a few ideas for amazing tours for you to experience the best Phuket has to offer.
Explore the Island
Take a scenic drive along the coast and discover Phuket’s most beautiful landmarks, natural wonders and iconic landmarks. Stop over in Old Town and wander into the suburbs for an up-close look at the multi-coloured buildings crafted in the Sino-Portuguese architectural style. Then pop into a bustling market for a refreshing coconut juice as you browse stalls selling pretty much everything from shoes, clothes and jewellery to fresh food, arts and crafts. This is the cultural side of Phuket you don’t want to miss.
Set sail for Phi Phi
If the picture-perfect Phi Phi islands look familiar to you, it’s probably because they’re featured on so many postcards and Insta-feeds. Not to mention the fact that Phi Phi Le was the spectacular film set for The Beach. Snorkel in the sparkling ocean spotting colourful coral and curious sea life as you go. Explore Phi Leh Cove and Viking Cove, then soak up some sunshine and good vibes on Bamboo Island and Koh Rang Yai.
Canoe to Phang Nga Bay
Do you canoe? Well, you do now! Head out on the emerald ocean waters towards gorgeous Phang Na Bay, paddling between its dramatic limestone rock formations along the way. Explore tidal coves and lush mangroves, and spot soaring sea eagles, shy fruit bats and chattering monkeys. Go overboard for a refreshing swim, then paddle your way back to the island after an exciting day out.
A taste of Phuket
It’s no secret that Thai food is phenomenal. And there’s no better way to sample it all than on a street eats food tour through Phuket’s many street stalls, local restaurants and night markets. Wander through fresh food markets where strange looking (but delicious) exotic fruits are heaped in piles. Stop at a street stall for some mango sticky rice and coconut cake. Or take a fascinating Thai cooking class to learn the secrets of delicious Thai cuisine.
