List of Must Visits in Phuket – Gems Waiting to Be Discovered

Phuket is a treasure trove of attractions and tourists should look beyond the gorgeous beaches & consider a tour of must see locations. Listed below are some of the most popular, worthy of your list.

1

Discover the Magic of Phang Nga Bay

A day exploring the sheer beauty of Phang Nga Bay will remain with you forever. Be enthralled by the majestic limestone columns jutting out of the emerald green water, and lose yourself in a verdant green wonderland of thick foliage. Take a boat excursion to nearby James Bond Island, snorkel, scuba dive and simply chill on the beach and bask in the sun. If you are at Kata Rocks, the journey to Phang Nga Bay is a mere 56kms; hence you can well plan a day's excursion to this magical wonderland.

2

Explore Old Phuket Town

The Old Phuket Town will turn out to be quite the adventure; charming little Sino-Portuguese architectural marvels, hidden away in little pockets are waiting to be discovered, while an afternoon sojourn exploring the many quaint charms of the town will be quite a treat. Stop for lunch or tea at one of the lovely little cafes, and indulge in a bout of shopping at the boutiques lining the streets. Easy to reach from Phuket luxury villas, Thailand and its colonial past is well reflected in this vintage quarter.

3

Be a Part of Patpong Night Life

Strolling down Bangla Road in Patpong will turn out to be quite the adventure; as long as you keep an open mind and arm yourself with plenty of humour. The antics to be viewed along this stretch are a part of the city and its nightlife, and if you are out to party this is the place to be. Plenty of bars and nightclubs are located on Bangla Road; offering an interesting array of entertainment and experiences. Remember though, to keep your nocturnal fun within limits and you will wake up the next day with no regrets.

Visit the Big Buddha

sits on the summit of Nakkard Hills and is seen from the precincts of Rawai, Chalong and Kata. The 45 metre statue is flanked by a smaller bronze image and is backed by a charming little shrine. Driving to the summit of the hills you are treated to sights of authentic Thailand and when at the top the views are simply amazing. Make sure to take along a map to not miss out on other top attractions in the area.

Wat Chalong and Phuket Temples

Phuket's most important and iconic temple is the Wat Chalong. Every year thousands of pilgrims and tourists explore its interiors, while the exterior is a glimmering work of art made up of many pagodas that are encrusted with hundreds of shimmering glass mirror pieces. Visiting the temple during local holidays is quite a treat, as the entire compound represents a fairground with plenty of food stalls tempting the foodie in you to try various local specialities.
