7 Fun Things to Do in Phuket, Thailand - For a Time of Your Life!

Phuket is one of the popular beach destinations in the world offering a time of your life. Here are some of the best things you have to incorporate in your travel plans!



When Phuket is mentioned, the first thing that crosses your mind is vast stretches of amazing beaches. And that's how most postcards and travel websites highlight it. So, if that's the case, the number 1 item on this list to enjoy here in Phuket will be the beaches! Some of the best ones in town are the Laem Singh, Nai Harn Beach, Nai Yang, Ya Nui, Pleumsuk and Karon Beach. With so many beaches to explore, make sure to plan your itinerary well!


Big Buddha

A popular landmark that is revered by the locals is the famous Big Buddha statue. This is a forty-five-meter statue of Buddha that stands tall. The white marble structure can be viewed from most places on this island as it is situated atop the tallest peak of Phuket. You can witness some of the amazing panoramic views of Phuket when in here.


Snorkelling or Diving

The Phuket waters have a treasure trove of amazing marine creatures. And it is a must to explore them. You can either snorkel or go on a diving expedition. Snorkelling doesn't require much, just the gear would do. Diving, on the other hand, requires you to have some skills. If you haven't undertaken diving before, you've got nothing to worry about as there are many PADI certified courses you can take. They will teach all the required skills you will need for your first dive. You can check out the resorts around for such activities too. If you're looking for a luxury villa in Phuket who offer these expeditions, you can check properties like Anantara Layan Phuket Resort, for instance.


Night Markets

You cannot miss out on an opportunity to explore night markets, and Phuket gives one of the best experience. You can expect Asian markets to have a huge collection of items of vivid colours. They are the best places to pick up souvenirs and gifts too! The Chillva Market is a popular choice.


Phang Nga Bay

How about a day trip from Phuket? Well, everyone raves about the Phang Nga Bay, and there are plenty of good reasons as to why. People often swear by it and call it a must-see place. The incredible limestone cliff hangings will take your breath away! And whatever time you spend getting there, is truly worth it!


Phuket Elephant Sanctuary

The national animal of Thailand is the elephant. And the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary is a good place to visit to learn about these incredible creatures of the wild. The sanctuary aims to protect these creatures from abusive tourism. And therefore, it is much recommended to visit this place if you want to spend time with elephants.


Temple Hopping

Phuket is home to some of the most beautiful ancient temples boasting of incredible architecture. Make sure you set aside some hours to go temple hopping this vacation!
