Best things to do in Phuket – It’s time for some fun!

Phuket is a favourite destination among many travellers, mainly because it has so much to offer. Let's discover what you can add to your holiday itinerary for a memorable time.


Karon View Point

Phuket is home to many beautiful beaches and equally stunning views to savour while you're there! An extremely popular tourist attraction is the Karon View Point three beaches view, and you're likely to run into many tourists when you go here. As the name suggests, you will be able to see the three beaches north of the viewpoint and is a favourite among couples! Phuket gets its name from the Malay word for hill, so you're likely to come across several places where you can enjoy the view! The three beaches you get to spot at Kata Noi, Kata, and Karon beaches. Hiring a private driver would be a great idea, as getting to the point by car is the best way to get there.


Weekend Night Markets

For a little extra exploring and experiencing the local culture, Phuket Old Town is the place to start. Giving tourists a glimpse into the heritage-rich past of the island, and hosts Weekend Night Markets. For locals, the marker is known as Talad Tairot or "boot car sale". At these night markets, you will find everything, from bags, watched to CDs and DVDs! A visit to the market is one of the most unusual things to do in Phuket and allows you to enjoy a plethora of food, journey through the narrow paths in between stalls, and observe how local life works.


Learn to cook

Thai cuisine is renowned worldwide, mainly for the flavour it possesses and just how tasty it is! The best way to learn to make Thai dishes on your own is to attend a cooking class or two! There are institutions in Phuket that specialize in Royal Thai Cuisine. The cooking classes will teach participants the art of Thai cuisine and help them create signature dishes. If you don't want to cook, you can even just go for a meal! If you want to go the extra mile, there are also personalization options.


Island hopping

Phuket is home to many islands, and this is ideal for island hopping! Phang Nga Bay, Phi Phi island, and Racha Island are great options, to begin with, and you can get to these islands quite easily via boats. If you want to step out of Layan Residences by Anantara, which boasts many Phuket luxury villas, island hopping is the way to go! You can opt to book a proper island-hopping adventure online so that you'll have a hassle-free and convenient trip.


Ride a scooter

For a little extra fun and to make more memories before you head home, get a scooter to ride around Koh Yao Noi, a small fishing island. You can get to the island by boat and can enjoy some delicious food on the island and explore the place on a scooter before heading back to Phuket!
