Things To Do In Phuket

1. Visit The Big Buddha

Best & Fun Things To Do In Phuket

Anyone who has been to Thailand will know that there are Buddhas everywhere! They come in all shapes and sizes, but if you want to see one of the biggest, then you need to visit the Big Buddha.

The Big Buddha is located on top of Nakkerd Hills on the west coast of Phuket Island between Chalong and Kata Beach. It’s a huge white marble statue that’s 45 meters tall and 12 meters wide and was built to withstand earthquakes and high winds. It is visible from almost anywhere on Phuket Island and is a great spot to get a panoramic view of the island. There are also several smaller Buddha statues, temples, and shrines nearby that are worth checking out.

The Big Buddha is a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s one of the most famous attractions in Phuket, and even though it’s popular with tourists, it still feels pretty relaxed and tranquil.

Address: Soi Yot Sane 1, Chaofa West Rd, Nakkerd hill near Chalong.

2. Discover the Past at Phuket Town

Best & Fun Things To Do In Phuket

For a taste of Phuket, head to the island’s capital, Phuket Town. It’s in stark contrast to the rest of Phuket Island, which is renowned for its beaches and resort towns. Phuket Town is a melting pot of cultures, with a strong Chinese influence evident in the architecture, food, and temples.

Walking around Phuket Town is like taking a step back in time. The narrow streets are lined with shophouses, many of which have been converted into cafes, bars, and boutiques. There are also some beautiful temples and Chinese shrines to explore. Some of the must-see sights in Phuket Town include the Old Phuket Town, Jui Tui Shrine, and Phuket Trickeye Museum.

So if you’re looking for beautiful places in Phuket to explore, make sure you add Phuket Town to your list. The town is located south of Phuket Island, about 30 minutes from Patong Beach. It’s best to visit Phuket Town during the day as many sights are best seen in daylight.

3. Have Fun at the Phuket Trickeye Museum

Imagine being able to step inside your favorite painting or becoming part of a work of art. At the Phuket Trickeye Museum, that’s exactly what you can do!

The Phuket Trickeye Museum is an interactive museum where you can pose for photos in front of life-size paintings and 3D artworks. There are a total of five themed zones to explore, each with its unique theme. It’s actually a really cool experience and one of the best things to do in Phuket.

The museum is located in the Old Town of Phuket and is open daily from 10 am – 7 pm. Tickets cost 500 baht (about $14) for adults and 200 baht (about $5.80) for children.

Address: 130/1 PhangNga Road, Taladyai, Muang, Phuket 83000 Thailand.

4. Race a Go Kart in Phuket

Go-karting is always fun, no matter where you are in the world. So when I found out that you could go karting in Phuket, I knew it was something I had to do!

I went to Patong Go-Kart Speedway, which is just a short walk from Patong Beach. It’s a 750-meter long track with a series of smooth bends, sharp corners, and long straights, so it’s perfect for anyone who wants to get their adrenaline pumping.

A race at Patong Go-Kart Speedway costs 750 baht (about $22) for 10 minutes. However, you can also opt for the 400cc karts, which cost 1,300 baht (about $37) for 10 minutes. 

And since I’m a bit competitive, I went for the 400cc karts. This kart can reach speeds of up to 110 kilometers per hour, which is pretty fast, considering the track is only 750 meters long!

I had an absolute blast racing around the track, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for fun activities in Phuket.

5. Have Fun At Phuket Waterparks

If you’re looking for fun things to do in Thailand with kids, head to one of Phuket’s waterparks. There are two main waterparks on the island; Splash Jungle Waterpark and Blue Tree Waterpark.

Both are great for a fun day out and have a range of water slides, pools, wave pools, and lazy rivers to keep both kids and adults entertained. If that’s not enough, there are also a few land-based activities such as trampolines and zip-lining. And if you need to refuel, there are plenty of food and drink options available.

A day pass to Splash Jungle Waterpark costs 1,100 baht (about $32) for adults and 650 baht (about $19) for kids. A day pass to Blue Tree Waterpark costs 950 baht (about $27) for adults and 350 baht (about $10) for kids below 120cm.

6. Soak Up The Sun At Patong Beach

Best & Fun Things To Do In Phuket

If you’re looking for some time to relax and soak up the Thai sun, head to Patong Beach. It’s located on the west coast of Phuket Island and is one of the most popular beaches in Thailand. For that reason, it is the busiest and most developed beach on Phuket Island and is renowned for its nightlife, restaurants, and shops.

But, it’s also a great spot to relax on the sand, swim in crystal-clear water, and catch some rays. Patong Beach is 3 kilometers long, so there’s plenty of space to find your own little patch of sand. If you get hungry, there are plenty of beachfront restaurants and bars to choose from, or, if you’re feeling active, there are plenty of water sports on offers, such as jet-skiing, parasailing, and banana boat rides.

And being one of the most popular tourist spots in Phuket, the beach is always buzzing with energy, and there’s always something going on. You’ll also find some great resorts located right on the beach if you’re looking for a place to stay.

7. Enjoy Nature at Sirinat National Park

Sirinat National Park is located on the northwest coast of Phuket Island and covers an area of 22 square kilometers. It was established in 1981 and is one of Thailand’s most popular national parks.

The park is made up of tropical forests, mangroves, coral reefs, beaches, and lagoons and is home to an abundance of wildlife, including monkeys, squirrels, mongooses, and over 100 bird species.

Sirinat National Park is a great place to enjoy nature and the outdoors. There are plenty of hiking trails to explore, mangrove forests to discover, and lookout points with stunning views. And if you’re looking for a place to relax, there are four secluded beaches within the park where you can sunbathe, swim or snorkel in the clear water.

This is one of the most iconic places to visit in Phuket as you get to experience the best of what the island offers, all in one place.

Entry to the park costs 200 baht (about $5.80) for adults and 100 baht (about $2.90) for children.

Address: 89 Sakhu, Thalang District, Chang Wat Phuket 83140.

8. Go Diving And Snorkeling In Phuket

With its crystal-clear waters, colorful coral reefs, and abundance of marine life, it’s no wonder that Phuket is one of the best places in Thailand to go diving and snorkeling.

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, there are plenty of dive sites to choose from, and you’re sure to find something to suit your level. For those who have never dived before, there are plenty of PADI dive centers located around Phuket where you can do a discover scuba diving program.

If snorkeling is more your thing, then you’re also in luck, as there are plenty of snorkeling spots around Phuket. One of the best places to go snorkeling is Coral Island, located just off the coast of Phuket. Here you’ll find a beautiful coral reef with an abundance of colorful fish.

Some operators can also take you to Koh Phi Phi to snorkel, about an hour away from Phuket. This is one of Thailand’s most popular snorkeling spots as it’s teeming with marine life.

I went on a snorkeling trip with Sea Bees Diving, which I highly recommend. The staff were great and took us to some amazing snorkeling spots. I had fun, and this is definitely one of the most exciting things to do in Phuket.

9. Visit Phuket Aquaria

A must-visit attraction in Phuket is the Phuket Aquarium. This is the largest aquarium in Phuket, located in the Central Floresta Shopping Mall in Phuket Town.

This aquarium is divided into four main sections; Coastal Heaven, Station Aquarius, South China Sea, and Mystic Forest. Coastal heaven is dedicated to penguins; Station Aquarius is an interactive space where you can touch horseshoe crabs and starfish; the South China Sea is where you’ll find sharks and stingrays; and Mystic Forest is a freshwater aquarium with snakes, turtles, lizards, and chameleon.

In addition to these main sections, there are also a number of tanks dotted around the aquarium with different fish and sea creatures. There’s also a restaurant within the aquarium where you can have lunch or dinner with a view of the fish.

The entrance fee to the Phuket Aquarium is 180 baht (about $5.25) for adults and 100 baht (about $2.90) for children. It’s open daily from 10:30 am – 7:00 pm.

Address: 51 Moo 8, Sakdidej Road, Vichit, Muang, Phuket 83000 Thailand.

10. Visit Wat Phra Thong at Thalang

Wat Phra Thong is one of the most unique and interesting temples to visit in Thailand. It’s located in the town of Thalang and is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

The temple is home to a half-golden Buddha statue. It’s said that a boy was minding his father’s buffalo in a field when he tied the animal to a piece of metal protruding from the ground. Unfortunately, he died but appeared in his father’s dream and told him to dig up the metal. And when he did, he found a gold statue of the Buddha. He could not completely remove the statue from the ground, so he built a temple around it.

A second attempt was made to remove the statue, but it was unsuccessful and broke into two pieces. It’s not known where the other piece is but the half that remains in the temple is still covered in gold.

The temple is now one of the top Phuket attractions attracting both locals and tourists alike. You can take a guided tour of the temple to learn more about its history or simply enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful gold statue.

Address: 172/2​ Nanai Rd, Amphoe Thalang, Chang Wat Phuket 83110.

11. Watch the Simon Cabaret Show

Have you ever wanted to see a drag queen show? If so, then you need to add the Simon Cabaret Show to your list of things to do in Phuket. This is one of the most popular shows in Phuket and is not to be missed!

The Simon Cabaret Show features extravagant costumes, colorful sets, dancers, acrobats, and beautiful ladyboys. Yes, you heard that right. The show is performed entirely by ladyboys. In fact, it’s world-famous and has been running for over 20 years. In addition, this is also one of the largest cabaret shows in Thailand, with a seating capacity of over 500 people.

Tickets start at 900 baht ($26) for VIP seating and 700 baht ($20) for standard seating. The show starts at 8:15 pm, but it’s best to arrive early to get a good seat.

Address: 8 Sirirat Rd, Tambon Patong, Amphoe Kathu, Chang Wat Phuket 83150.

12. Tour the Rawai Village

Wondering what to do in Phuket? How about a tour of the Rawai Village? The Rawai Village is located on the eastern tip of Phuket Island and is a great place to see a more traditional side of Thailand. It’s a small fishing village occupied by moken (sea gypsies) for generations. They are nomadic people who have traditionally lived a life at sea, only coming to shore to trade their catch for supplies.

Today, the village is one of the most popular tourist spots in Phuket, known for its fresh seafood, laid-back atmosphere, and beautiful beaches. It’s the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city’s more developed areas and to get a taste of traditional Thailand.

When you’re in the Rawai Village, make sure you try some of the fresh seafood on offer. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from, and they all have their own specialties. If you’re not sure what to order, just ask the locals for their recommendations.

And if you’re looking for something a bit more active, there are plenty of hiking and biking trails in the area that offer great views of the Rawai Village and the surrounding coastline.

Address: Rawai Art Village, Rawai, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83100.

13. Enjoy the Golden Sands of Kata Beach

Kata Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Phuket, and in my opinion, it’s even nicer than Patong Beach. This is because it’s much more laid-back and relaxed and doesn’t have the same commercialized feel.

Kata Beach is a great spot to relax on the sand, swim in the clear water, or try your hand at some beach activities, such as stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, or beach volleyball. And if you get hungry, grab a snack or a papaya shake from one of the beachfront vendors or, if you’re looking for something more substantial, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.

Kata Beach is also a great spot for watching the sunset. As the sun starts to dip below the horizon, the sky lights up with a beautiful golden hue, making it the perfect place to end your day.

14. Take a Cooking Class

Thai food is some of the best in the world and, lucky for us, it’s not too difficult to recreate at home. Thai cuisine is all about balance; the perfect mix of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. If you’re interested in learning how to cook Thai food, then sign up for a cooking class. It’s a great way to spend a few hours, and you’ll get to eat what you make for lunch or dinner. Most classes will include a trip to the local market, where you’ll learn about the different ingredients used in Thai cooking.

I had the opportunity to take a cooking class with Blue Elephant Cooking Class, and it was an incredible experience. We made five different dishes, including my all-time favorite, pad Thai, and we had a blast doing it. The class was very hands-on, and our teacher was so much fun. I would highly recommend taking a cooking class if you’re looking for exciting things to do in Phuket.

Prices for a cooking class vary depending on where you go but, as a general guide, expect to pay around 1500 baht ($43) per person.

15. Hike Up to Karon Viewpoint (Three Beaches Hill)

Karon Viewpoint is one of the most popular lookout points in Phuket and is a must-do activity when you’re in the area. It’s located south of Kata Noi Beach and, as the name suggests, offers up panoramic views of three different beaches; Kata Yai, Kata Noi, and Karon Beach.

The hike up to the viewpoint is easy and should only take 20-30 minutes. It’s a bit of a steep climb in parts, but the steps have been cut into the hill, so it’s not too strenuous. And once you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with some of the most incredible views of the three beaches and the surrounding jungle and mountains.

Admission to Karon Viewpoint is free, but as with the most popular tourist attractions in Phuket, there are a few souvenir stalls below the hill. So be prepared to be pestered to buy something.

Address: 4233 Tambon Karon, Amphoe Mueang Phuket, Chang Wat Phuket 83100.

16. Swim at Karon Beach

If Patong Beach is a little too busy for you, head to Karon Beach, which is located just south of Patong. It’s a little quieter and more relaxed but still just as beautiful.

Karon Beach is also longer than Patong Beach, at 3.5 kilometers, so there’s plenty of space to find your own spot on the sand. The water is just as clear and perfect for swimming, and there are plenty of beach umbrellas and sun loungers available for rental. However, note that the sea can sometimes be choppy, so it’s good to take caution when swimming.

If you’re feeling active, there are a few water sports on offers, such as jet skiing, banana boat rides, and parasailing. If you’re looking to relax, then there are plenty of beachfront massage options available too.

Karon Beach is also a great spot for watching the sunset, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars opposite the beach should you get peckish. You’ll also find good accommodation options here if you’re looking to stay near the beach. Popular resorts here include the Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket and the Beyond Resort Karon.

Address: Karon Beach, Karon, Mueang Phuket District, Phuket 83100.

17. Experience Island Boat Tours 

One of the coolest things to do in Phuket is to take an island-hopping tour. These tours are a great way to see some of Phuket’s most beautiful islands and beaches, which you’d otherwise miss if you stayed on the mainland.

Most island-hopping tours include a visit to Maphrao Island (also known as Coconut Island), where you can relax on the white sandy beaches, swim in the clear waters, or go snorkeling; Nakha Noi, an idyllic spot for swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing; and Khai Nui Island, where you can stroll along the powdery white sand beaches and swim in the beautiful turquoise waters.

There are more than 15 islands off the coast of Phuket, so there’s plenty to choose from, and you’re sure to find an island-hopping tour to suit your needs. Prices for these tours vary depending on the operator. But as a general guide, expect to pay around 1,500 – 2,000 baht ($43 – $57) per person.

18. Try Zip-lining at Flying Hanuman

Looking for an adventurous activity to do in Thailand? Then why not try zip-lining at Flying Hanuman? It’s located near Patong Beach and is one of the best zip-lining experiences in Thailand. And I say that from personal experience!

Flying Hanuman offers 27 wooden platforms and 15 zip-lines that take you through the jungle canopy, ranging from 50 meters to 400 meters. It’s an incredible experience and definitely not for the faint-hearted. I don’t say this to scare you but to prepare you for one of the most thrilling things you’ll ever do.

The staffs are extremely professional, and safety is their number one priority. You’ll be kitted out with all the necessary safety gear and given a safety briefing before you start.

A session at Flying Hanuman costs 3,490 baht (about $99).

Address: Flying Hanuman, 89/16 Moo 6, Soi Namtok, Wichitsongkram Road, Kathu, Phuket, 83120.

19. Plane Spotting at Mai Khao Beach

Some rules are meant to be broken, and when it comes to visiting Mai Khao Beach, that’s definitely the case. Located on the northwest coast of Phuket Island, Mai Khao Beach is one of Thailand’s most beautiful beaches but also one of the most dangerous. The reason? Well, it’s situated right next to an airport which means planes fly low overhead, often just a few hundred meters from the beach.

While most people would be running for cover, plane spotters flock to Mai Khao Beach to watch the planes take off and land. It’s definitely not your typical beach activity, but it’s something that has to be seen to be believed. And although plane spotting has been prohibited, it’s still something people do. So if you’re feeling brave, Mai Khao Beach should be on your list of top places to visit in Phuket.

Address: 65 Soi Mai Khao 4, Tambon Mai Khao, Phuket 83110.

20. Visit Wat Chalong

Best Things To Do In Phuket

Wat Chalong is one of the most important and revered temples in Thailand. It’s located on the southeast coast of Phuket Island and is the island’s largest temple. The temple was built to honor two highly respected monks who played an important role in leading the locals during a rebellion in the early 1800s.

The temple complex is made up of several buildings set around beautiful gardens and ponds. The main attractions within the complex are the ornately decorated main hall, which houses statues of the two revered monks.

The temple is open daily from 8 am – 5 pm, and there’s no entrance fee. This makes it one of the best free things to do in Phuket.

Address: 70 Village No.6 Chao Fah Tawan Tok Road, Chalong, Muang, Phuket 83000.

21. Discover The Little-Known Island Of Maiton

Maiton is a small, uninhabited island just off Phuket’s coast. It’s often referred to as Phuket’s best-kept secret as it’s relatively unknown compared to some of Phuket’s more popular islands. The reason? Maiton Island was, for many years, a private island owned by a wealthy Thai family and was only open to guests of their luxury resort.

Today, 60 of the luxurious villas are in wrecks, but the island still radiates an air of exclusivity and is a beautiful spot for a day trip. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and is a great spot for snorkeling and diving. The island’s turquoise waters are also ideal for swimming. And being one of the exotic places in Phuket, there are plenty of photo opportunities too.

22. Get a Thai Massage

A visit to Thailand wouldn’t be complete without getting a Thai massage. Thai massage is an ancient healing art that has been practiced in Thailand for centuries. It’s a unique form of massage that combines acupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.

Thai massage is said to be beneficial for a number of things, such as relieving muscle tension, improving circulation, and aiding relaxation. And, after a long day of sightseeing in Phuket, I can tell you from personal experience that a Thai massage is heavenly!

There are Thai massage parlors all over Phuket. But if you’re looking for a reputable place in Phuket, I recommend Healthland in Patong. It’s an award-winning day spa that offers Thai massage and a whole host of other spa treatments.

23. Shop for Food and Souvenirs at Phuket’s Markets

If you love to shop (or even if you don’t), visiting Phuket’s many markets is a must. There are markets all over the island selling everything from food and souvenirs to clothes and homewares.

The most popular market is the Sunday Walking Street Market which is held every Sunday from 4 pm – 10 pm. It’s located on Thalang Road in the Old Town of Phuket and is the perfect place to find souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home. There are also plenty of food stalls at the market selling delicious Thai food, such as pad Thai, curry, and grilled meats. Be sure to try some of the street food while you’re there.

Phuket is also renowned for its night markets, and they’re the perfect place to go for a cheap and tasty meal. There are night markets all over the island, but the most popular is Phuket Weekend Night Market which is held every Saturday and Sunday from 4 pm – 10 pm. It’s located outside Phuket Town and is easy to get to by taxi.

If you’re not in Phuket on the weekend to attend any of the above markets, don’t worry, there are plenty of other markets held throughout the week. You can check out Banzaan Fresh Market (daily), a great place to buy fresh produce.

Take your time wandering around the market stalls, haggling with the vendors, and sampling Thai food. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss, and it’s one of the must-do things in Phuket.

24. Marvel At The Upside-Down House (Baan Teelanka)

Baan Teelanka, also known as the upside-down house, is one of the most unique attractions in Phuket. It’s a three-story house that’s been built completely upside down!

When you first see it, you’ll think it’s a trick of the eye. But nope, that’s just how it’s been built. It’s pretty impressive when you think about it. This house was built as a way to attract tourists, and it’s certainly done its job. Lots of people come to take photos and marvel at the unusual structure.

The upside-down house is open daily from 10 am – 6 pm, and entry costs 350 baht (about $10).

Address: 51/11 Chalermprakiet Ratchakan Thi 9 Road, Phuket 83000.

25. Have Dinner on Rang Hill

Imagine having dinner with a panoramic view of Phuket town. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, that’s exactly what you can do at Rang Hill. This hill is home to two popular restaurants; Tun ka Cafe and Khaorang Breeze Restaurant. Both offer an extensive menu of Thai and international cuisine.

I had dinner at Tun ka Cafe, and the food was fantastic and reasonably priced. The views are even better. And although I did not have dinner at Khaorang Breeze Restaurant, the reviews online are just as good. Both restaurants are situated next to each other, so it won’t matter which one you choose.

I suggest arriving around 5.30 or 6 pm so you can watch the sunset while you enjoy your meal. And if you want to avoid the crowds, try to make a reservation beforehand. All in all, this is one of the most amazing places in Phuket to have dinner.

26. Help The Elephants In Phuket

Today, there are only around 40,000 Asian elephants left in the wild. And sadly, these majestic creatures are still being captured and abused by the tourism industry. But, there are a number of ethical elephant sanctuaries in Thailand where you can visit and interact with these incredible animals in a way that does not harm them.

One of the most popular sanctuaries in Phuket is the Tree Top Elephant Reserve. This sanctuary is committed to providing its elephants with the highest standard of care. The sanctuary is in a lush forest where the elephants roam freely, and you’ll get to spend the day feeding and admiring them. This is a truly magical experience and one of the coolest things to do in Phuket.

27. Join a Yoga Session in Phuket

Yoga is a great way to relax, unwind and de-stress. Today, this ancient practice is becoming increasingly popular all over the world as people look for ways to lead healthier and more balanced lives. Therefore, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many people now search for “yoga retreats” or places where they can join yoga classes while on vacation.

So when you’re in Phuket, why not sign up for a yoga session? There are many different studios and classes to choose from around the island. Some of Phuket’s most popular yoga studios include Yoga Connection Phuket, Belove Yoga Rooftop Studio, and Yoga Republic Phuket.

I went to a hatha yoga class at Belove Yoga and enjoyed it. The studio is located on the roof of a building with stunning views over Patong Bay. And after the class, I felt relaxed and refreshed. This is definitely one of the most popular activities to do in Phuket, especially among visitors from Western countries.

Prices for yoga classes vary depending on the studio and type of class. But expect to pay around 500 baht ($15) for a single drop-in session.

28. Take a Food Tour in Phuket

When it comes to food, Thailand is up there with the best of them. From pad Thai and green curry to sticky mango rice and som tam, there’s something for everyone. And, of course, you can’t visit Phuket without sampling some of the delicious street food on offer.

Eating street food is one of the best things to do in Phuket. And luckily, this city has no shortage of it. From markets and food stalls to hawker centers and night markets, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

A great way to try a bit of everything is to take a food tour. Phuket Old Town Food Tour offers a range of tours, all of which are led by knowledgeable guides passionate about food.

During the tour, you’ll get to try a variety of different dishes and learn all about the history and culture behind the food. You’ll also visit some of Phuket’s hidden food gems you may not have found on your own.

Tours start at 2,000 baht (about $58) per person.

29. Enjoy Phuket’s Nightlife

Phuket is not only famous for its idyllic beaches but also its vibrant nightlife. Therefore, after enjoying touring some of the best Phuket attractions, why not end your night by checking out the island’s famous nightlife scene?

Patong is the liveliest and most well-known nightlife spot on the island and is where you’ll find the majority of bars, clubs, and pubs. It’s also where you’ll find the most tourists. Another popular nightlife spot is Bangla Road, a pedestrianized street lined with bars and nightclubs.

But, if you’re looking to escape the crowds, plenty of other bars and clubs are located around the island. You’ll find everything from chilled-out beach bars to stylish rooftop bars.

So no matter what your budget or taste, you’ll be able to find a nightlife spot to suit you in Phuket.

30. Visit Chalong Bay Rum Distillery

I didn’t know Phuket had its rum distillery, but as it turns out, it does! Chalong Bay Rum is made using traditional French methods, and the sugar cane used to make the rum is grown locally in Phuket.

Today, the distillery produces seven types of spirits; one flavor of gin and six different rums. The distillery offers free tours, which include a rum tasting at the end. The tour takes around 45 minutes and is a great way to learn about the rum-making process and taste some good rum.

If you’re interested in taking a tour, you can book one directly through the Chalong Bay Rum website. Pictures are not allowed inside the distillery, but you can take photos in the gift shop and outside.

The tours run daily from pm to 6 pm, costing 450 baht (about $13) per person.

Address: 14/2 Moo 2, Palai, Soi 2, Chalong, Amphur Muang, Phuket 83130.

In Summary

These are just some of the best things to do in Phuket that I’m sure you’ll enjoy. So whether you’re looking for beaches to relax on, sights to see, or activities to keep you busy, Phuket has it all. Just choose what suits you best and have a great time.
