Phuket has many allures; amongst these are the stunning and vibrant destinations. Even if you are well versed in where to go; do read on and consider a visit to the following for the best of Phuket.


Check Out Phang Nga Bay

This is one of Thailand's most unique locations, a simple day out at this stunning spot guarantees a day of utter relaxation. A unique feature of the bay is the huge limestone columns that rise up out of the emerald green sea. The columns are home to exotic flora that some tourists are lucky enough to see. From Phang Nga Bay, you can easily head out to the famous James Bond Island as well as the beautiful Koh Panyee.


Relish Old Phuket Town

This beautiful area is home to vintage Sino-Portuguese bungalows and a collection of chic shops. The district sits in the heart of the capital of the province. There, you will find plenty of restaurants and sunny cafes to browse, while a leisurely walk will reveal plenty of colonial and Chinese splendours to admire. The area just 35 minutes away for guests staying at hotels like Kata Rocks and will fill your holiday with plenty of memories and experiences. Also, don't forget the cameras folks, the place is quite stunning.


Savour some Bangla Road Night Life

If you are up for some fun, head over to Bangla Road once the sun sets. The place will certainly shock, thrill and intrigue you. Home to Phuket's largest collection of bars, nightclubs, entertainment shows and lots of after dark activities, Bangla Road is a must do tradition when in Phuket. Located at Patpong Beach, the place is easy to reach from most Phuket luxury villas. Thailand has this red light district to satisfy all the curious tourists. Mind you, stay safe though, as within the borders of harmless fun you might leave with nothing but rambunctious memories of a night at Bangla Road.


The Big Buddha in Chalong

The giant Buddha of Chalong will probably be the first sight in Phuket you observe from up in the air. The statue located on the summit of Nakkerd Hills is 45 metres high and visible across the land. The ride to the temple takes you across what is the traditional side of Thailand and will prove to be quite the adventure, for you will be observing local customs and traditions.


Tour Wat Chalong

Wat Chalong is Phuket's iconic temple that welcomes thousands of visitors every year. An architectural marvel, the temple is quite beautiful; it glitters and glows with light reflected off hundreds of glass slivers that are embedded in the shrine's spires. Heading over there on a national holiday is a real treat as the temple hosts holiday fairs. At these, you can buy a variety of goodies and feast on some of the most popular Thai foods. Considered the spiritual centre of Phuket, it is quite interesting to delve into the history of this temple.
