Things to do in Phuket
All-night partying is a big draw for many travellers, but there are lots of other things to do in Phuket, too. From jungle trekking to taking lessons at PADI diving schools, there's a host of adventures to be had on the island.
- Love animals? Head into the mountains and discover Toh Sae Hill in Phuket Town. Also known as Monkey Hill, this is a place where you can meet hundreds of cheeky monkeys in their natural environment, while also enjoying breathtaking views across the island from the amazing viewpoint.
- If you’re visiting for romance, one of the best things to do in Phuket is take a trip to Promthep Cape, right down on the island’s south coast. The views here are second to none, offering a great opportunity for you to gaze across the Andaman Sea all the way to the distant palm-lined islands.
- No traveller can afford to miss a trip to Phuket Town, the capital of Phuket Province. This is the heart and soul of the island, with bustling market stalls, speeding tuk-tuks, and some of Thailand’s top attractions, including the opulent Wat Chalong Buddhist temple, and the unusual Trickeye Museum.
- If you prefer to take things at a slower, quieter pace, there are plenty of places in Phuket where you can find a bit of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle. The Big Buddha statue in Chalong has a lovely serene atmosphere, while the moving Tsunami Memorial Park in Kamala is a wonderful place for some peace.
- Phuket also has a lot of family friendly attractions for anyone travelling with young children, especially amusement parks. Splash Jungle Waterpark boasts all sorts of flumes and rapids, while Phuket FantaSea has fun for all ages, with a tiger jungle adventure, entertainment centre, and stage shows.
Best beaches in Phuket
Phuket is home to more than 40km of perfect stretches of sand, with many of the beaches protected as part of the island’s national parks. The huge number of beaches means there’s something for everyone.
- Patong Beach and Karon Beach are considered to be two of the best beaches in Phuket. They’re both incredibly lively destinations, lined with buzzing bars, restaurants, and neon-lit nightlife. These beaches are also excellent places to try out some island watersports, and pick up souvenirs from local vendors.
- If you’re looking for a quieter, more peaceful beach experience, head to the secluded hideaways of Nai Thon and Layan on the north coast, for a serene atmosphere and stunning views. Nai Thon Beach especially has been largely overlooked by developers, so it’s still unspoilt and a true seafront paradise.
- Searching for a little more adventure? No problem! Some of Phuket’s best beaches can only be accessed by boat, making them almost completely isolated from the island crowds. Freedom Beach, which is surrounded by thick rainforest, can be reached in just 25 minutes from the town of Patong.
