Best Activities for Tour Groups in Phuket - What You Need to Know to Enjoy Phuket

Phuket, Thailand, is one of the most popular destinations for those seeking sun, sand and the sea. Add to this mix a dash of vibrant nightlife, and you have a heady cocktail of fun.


Head to the beach

It is best that you soak up sun and salt before the heat becomes too much. So as soon as you finish your breakfast, head to the beach where you can relax under a palm tree. A couple of good options for a relaxing beach time would be Karon beach and Phang Nga Bay. After a reasonable period of time is allowed for digestion, you can hit the waters for a swim. Alternatively, you could opt for a banana boat ride or even go snorkeling in the clear blue waters.

There is one thing that you must remember, though. The Phuket sun can be quite merciless, especially on untrained skin. So keep yourself covered in a thick coat of sun block – at least SPF 50 or above – at all times. Make sure that you reapply every hour or so because you are likely to sweat the sun block off. In addition, drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.


Hit the shops

Head down the streets of Phuket for a spot of shopping and a glimpse of the local life. There are plenty of shops where you can purchase souvenirs and ornaments, as well as places to purchase apparel that is unique to Thailand. The apparel industry is strong here, with bright colours and soft material that are perfect to counter the heat. You will be spoiled for choice here, as Phuket is known as a shopaholic's paradise. Be it traditional handicrafts, jewellery, ornaments, antiques, art, or housewares, you can find anything you want here. The choices are varied and alluring to such an extent that the most difficult part would be to drag yourself out of the stores to enjoy the rest of the day. When you travel to Phuket, do keep in mind that you need to book your stay in an accommodation property such as Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas prior to your arrival.


Scuba Diving

Phuket has an underwater setting that will leave you in sheer awe. Adorned with a myriad of sea creatures, a diving expedition here offers a holistic dose of the underwater world. Regardless of whether you want to learn to dive or simply upgrade your existing diving skills, Phuket affords plenty of opportunities to do all that. Considered one of the best dive destinations in the world, this island offers an array of excellent courses where you will be taught the art of learning to dive in a professional fashion. In fact, it is a great place to get your PADI certification and regardless of whether you know nothing about diving or just want to brush up your diving skills Phuket has an array of dive schools that cater to all sorts of divers and even novices. To do justice to the diving expedition in Phuket, indulge in a full day dive excursion where you will be taken to enchanting locations such as the Phi Phi Islands and the Racha Islands that have a number of amazing fantastic dive sites.


Experience Thai culture

Start the night by experiencing Thai history, mythology, and traditions at the Siam Niramit entertainment complex. Its theatre is the highest stage in the world where performers present a three-act cultural show starting at 8.30pm every night (closed on Tuesdays).


Cable Jungle Adventure

With the cable jungle adventure, you will be able to enjoy the breathtaking location amid rich greenery. Passing through the dense forest of 300 plus old trees, you will get a fantastic experience. The organisers will help you whenever you need. Do not forget to bring some kind of mosquito repellent, if you are prone to mosquito bites. Before settling into the proper cable journey, there are two practice platforms following the initial training.
