What to do in Phuket in 4 days – Must-see Phuket attractions

The largest island of Thailand, Phuket, is a haven of fun and excitement. The island draws a massive number of tourists each year; taking a vacation here is sure to dispel all your worries.


About Phuket

Arguably the most visited Thai island, Phuket attracts travellers with its blue waters and pristine shoreline. The warm climate and the sunny days create a welcoming image for those from the West. The street markets found on the island cater to those who want to eat Thai spicy food and get a taste of what it's like to live in Thailand. Adventure and relaxation are two words associated with the island. The island has viable conditions for water sports like diving and snorkelling. The accommodation sector is outfitted to cater to every type of traveller; resorts in Phuket, the likes of Avani+ Mai Khao Phuket Suites & Villas, for example, are located in close proximity to tourist highlights.


Soak up Sun Rays at Patong Beach

The longest beach on the island, Patong Beach was once a serene spot for travellers to spend some time away from the characteristic bustle in Thailand, but now the beach is a hive of activity; although travellers can still find a quiet spot to relax. What's more, the array of hotels and restaurants located along the beach offers all sorts of Thai food.


Lounge on Kata Beach

Fringed by lush vegetation, Kata Beach is an excellent place to unwind and relax; the beach is touristy, but it is less so than Patong Beach. Just off the beach is an islet and the beach has soft white sand and plenty of room for tourists to relax.


Swim at Karon Beach

Found 15 minutes away from Patong Beach, Karon Beach is a peaceful and serene spot found on the island. The golden sand of the coast and the bright blue waters of the ocean create a spectacular contrast that attracts couples and families. The restaurants and the hotels sitting on the other side of the road serve a range of delicious food.


Visit Phuket Town

Perched on a picturesque bay, Phuket Town is found on the southern side of the island. Dotted with spas, massage centres, shops and eateries, the town offers plenty of things to do and see. The buildings are reminiscent of Chinese culture in Thailand. The best part of a tourist's experience stems from the narrow streets in Old Phuket Town.


Boat tours

Lounging on the beach is a great way to relax, but if you like to explore the island, you should opt for a boat tour; the stunning seascape of the island is best experienced on a guided boat tour. The highlights of a tour include Nakha Noi, Maphrao, and Racha Noi.


Diving and snorkelling

For your experience to be total, you should explore the marine world of Thailand; diving and snorkelling are the best mediums for explorers. The temperature of the water varies between 20 to 30 degrees, and the aquatic residents of Thailand include whale sharks, manta rays, turtles, and sea horses. If you are not a diver, not to worry, you can learn diving on the island; you can also get the dive certification here.


Visit Big Buddha

One of the most noticeable landmarks of the island, Big Buddha is a must-see on your four-day island tour. Created in 2004, the statue offers panoramic views of the island. With the sound of the bells, the smell of incense, and prayer flags, the site creates a peaceful atmosphere loved by tourists.
