06 Most Instagrammable Spots In Phuket - A Picturesque P.O.V of the Island

An essential part of travelling in the modern age, curating a post-vacation carousel or story highlight is a necessity for many. Embark on a visual journey through the stunning landscapes and hidden gems of Phuket with a list of the '6 Most Instagrammable Spots in Phuket'. From the colourful alleys of Old Phuket Town to the surreal experience of the Upside-down House, each location offers a unique backdrop for your next Instagram post. Whether chasing sunsets at Promthep Cape or exploring the lush rainforest at Hanuman World, the island beckons with endless opportunities to unveil the picturesque side of this captivating paradise.


Soi Romanee, Old Phuket Town

Showcase Phuket's rich history on your feed with a trip to Soi Romanee, the center of Old Phuket Town. Once a derelict neighbourhood, the rows of old Sino-Portuguese have been renovated in recent years, restoring the historic architectural landscape and bright pastel colours. Today, the alley is popular among tourists and photographers alike, for the picturesque shops and guesthouses lining the streets. The vibrance of Soi Romanee would make it impossible not to snap a couple of photos, with some cafes even opting for unique decor to attract tourists looking for the perfect Instagram backdrop. Additionally, catch the Old Town Festival for unique photo ops, with live bands, lights, and costumed guests. 


Aquaria Phuket Aquarium 

Thailand's biggest aquarium features large viewing windows and tunnels that display over 200,000 sea creatures in the tanks, including interactive touch pools with exotic jellyfish, a large stingray pool, and informative exhibits on marine life. Additionally, guests can experience "underwater" fine dining - equipped with a large private booth and viewing tank, the dining area is perfect for a unique photo of your food with a background of sea creatures swimming around. The aquarium is also conveniently located within a short distance from the Old Town and several family hotels in Phuket. For an accommodation option within walking distance from Aquaria, Travelodge Phuket Town is equipped with modern amenities and services, suited for families and general convenience. 


The Upside-down House (Baan Teelanka)

Most photo opportunities in Phuket consist of historic architecture, tropical scenery, and vibrant street life. However, one of the most unique attractions on the island is in a category of its own. Baan Teelanka, the famed upside-down house in Phuket, is perfect for those looking for a more peculiar spot to photograph, outside of the confines of the expected from an island location. The family-owned business is a 15-minute drive north of Phuket Town, and is praised by guests for the attention to detail given to the interior design, which remains consistent with the "upside-down" theme of the outer exterior. 


Rainforest Adventure Park (Hanuman World)

Surrounded by a lush jungle landscape, this eco-adventure park is suitable for all ages. Visitors can get snaps of themselves soaring from treetop to treetop, or while walking a narrow wooden bridge through the green canopy. Despite the dense forest, the park is a convenient distance from town, 10 minutes from the nearest town market. 


Rock Beach Swing, Karon

For a fairly new spot with a background of coastal Phuket's stunning waters, the Rock Beach Swing is a short walk from the famous Karon beach, and could not be a more fitting location for an Instagram photoshoot. The location features several spots for visitors to pose for a picture, or even lounge and gaze at the stunning seaside and cliffs with an uninterrupted view. Multiple swings are available for a gorgeous photo op of guests soaring over the palms and white sandy beach, with a horizon of the glistening sea. Alternatively, guests can climb up to the top of the "endless" white staircase, for a mind-boggling backdrop of the clear blue sky. 


Promthep Cape at Sundown

On the southern tip of the island, Promthep Cape has been a popular spot for decades, and rightfully so. Hundreds of tourists flock to the site daily to capture a photo of a breathtaking sunset over the Andaman Sea. It is also possible, though a little physically demanding, to trek to the end of the cape for a full panorama of the ocean, however, the views are incredibly clear from the main road. Additionally, the small beach below the cliffpoint is now easily accessible to the public, for a closeup of the crystal blue-green waters.
