10 Best Things to Do in Phuket – Must-do activities in Phuket

Phuket is one of the most popular locations in Thailand and when you visit the island you realise why it is considered to be paradise on earth.


Day trip to Phang Nga Bay

This trip is a once in a lifetime experience as you get to go on a boat to see some of the most mesmerising creations of nature. If you chose a day trip you will get to experience food and dining as well, whereas if you chose a half-day trip you will get to experience the stunning mountain ranges for hours.


Visit Phi Phi island

Probably slightly overrated as the only exciting beach in Phuket which is the main reason for some tourists to touch-down in Phuket, the Phi Phi Island is a beautiful paradise island which can make a vacation spot by itself.


Nightlife in Bangla

Bangla is known as the party central in Phuket. If you are someone who wishes to dance the night away then you must make a visit to Bangla where you can enjoy music, dancing drinks and food all on one street. There are many different attractions on this street hence, it is important to be a mindful and responsible tourist.


Big Buddha statue

As you fly into Phuket, the Big Buddha statue is what welcomes you from the island. This statue is 45 metres in height and costs nearly 30 million baht to complete it. A drive up to the ‘Big Buddha’ takes you through the life hidden away in the tropical island away from the tourists’ eyes.


Visit Similan islands

The nine islands are located not too far from Phuket and are treasures for scuba divers and island hoppers. The turquoise blue waters and the white sandy beaches are a popular location for fashion and wedding photography.


Relax by the beach

If you are staying at a Phuket family resort you are able to go to the beach, relax and enjoy the glistening sun. The lull of the waves, the warm breeze on your skin and the snacks you can treat yourself to make up for a relaxing day.


Shop at the night markets

A visit to Phuket is incomplete if you do not go to the night markets, to browse through the different products of the vendors to find some lovely items you can take back home as souvenirs and gifts. Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas is located walking distance from many night markets which are buzzing with life.


Watch the Simon Cabaret Show

If you love colourful and elaborate theatre performances you will love this transvestite performance at Patong Beach. It is almost impossible to make out who is who, as the make-up, the clothes and the movements itself make the performance absolutely amazing.


Visit the temples

There are many different temples in Phuket and Wat Chalong is one of the main attractions. It is a must, to visit at least a few of the main temples in Phuket to be able to see the stunning buildings and the attention to detail that makes them stand out from the other buildings.


Visit the Old Phuket town

The provincial capital of Phuket is a calm and serene location where you get to visualise what Phuket must have looked like during colonisation. You can walk around the Old Phuket town, go to the different shops and spend a peaceful evening while enjoying food and drinks.
