Top 5 Things to Do in Phuket – A Fun- Filled Tropical Holiday!

Planning on heading off to Phuket for a fun-filled vacation? Here are the top 5 must-do activities on the island, guaranteed to make your trip the most exciting and adventurous one yet!

1

Snorkelling

The crystal clear aquamarine blue waters of the Andaman Sea surrounding the island of Phuket is ideal to try a spot of snorkelling! While it is an activity which can be enjoyed all year round, the best season for it is considered to be during the months of November to April. Its when the sea is at its most placid and visibility at its highest. If one is planning on visiting anytime between the months of October to May, be mindful of the undertow, as it can be dangerously strong. Since the water is quite warm, a wetsuit would not be required but wearing a t-shirt is recommended to avoid sunburns. If you are unable to take along your own snorkelling equipment, there are plenty of shops and water sports centres on the island where you can buy or rent gear for reasonable prices.
