A Day Spent in Phuket – a wonderful time

Adventure, beauty and lots of fun, when it comes to attractions Phuket offers the best of all worlds. For the perfect days holidaying in this part of the world, try out the set of activities listed below.


Head over to the old town

The old town in Phuket is a tribute to 19th century Thailand and beautifully displays the architectural majesty of the era. Adorned by an array of quaint little cafes, book shops, boutiques and restaurants, a day out in the old town feels like travelling back time when this nation of the Far East was decorated with the best of baroque architecture.


Explore the many religious attractions around Phuket

Although highly cosmopolitan, Phuket is an equally spiritual destination. In fact the island of Phuket is the home of the famous Big Buddha and the Wat Chalong which emulates Buddhism in its most tranquil form. Surrounded by scenic appeal, these temples are ideal to bask in the ambience of pure serenity. Apart from the natural aura emulated in the surroundings, the temples in Phuket are also ideal locations to appreciate Thai architecture and learn all you need to know about the history and essence of the philosophy of Buddhism.


Bask in the Beaches

Undoubtedly Phuket has some of the finest beaches in all of Thailand. Unspoiled and perfect with great weather year round the sparkling white sands of the Phuket beaches are ideal for relaxing and sun bathing. If adrenaline is what you are craving for in the beaches of Phuket that too can be sought for the wild waves of Bang Tao Beach and the Kata beach are ideal for surfing. You can also indulge in jet skiing kite surfing and parasailing all of which are absolutely exhilarating in a destination like Phuket.


Take part in the festivities in Phuket

The festivals and events that take place in Phuket are very lively and full of color and usually have an eccentric touch to it. The island's most distinctive event is the annual Vegetarian Festival, which features processions of god-mediums performing rather shocking acts of self-mortification on the streets of Phuket!


Shop till you drop

Phuket is an exotic destination blessed with unparalleled scenic appeal and plenty of shopping opportunity. Exciting and plenty of fun shopping is an ideal way to spend at least a few of your days in Phuket. The famous Jungceylon Mall in Patong is a must stop by for fashion lovers and the Central Festival Phuket or the Premium Outlet is ideal to enjoy a holistic quality shopping experience. For those interested in all things authentically Thai head over to the Phuket weekend Market or even the many stalls and boutiques along the streets will have whatever it is you are looking for. Laguna also has an excellent collection of simple stores that sells every imaginable item under the sun. If you are staying at the Anantara Phuket Layan Resort & Spa these stores are just a hop, skip and a jump away.
