Phuket

Phuket is Thailand’s largest tropical island and has an unbeatable combination of perfect beaches, superb hospitality and great value accommodation. Patong is the central tourist beach with a pulsating nightlife centred on Bangla Road. Further south are the main resort beaches of Karon, Kata and Rawai, providing a village atmosphere yet in a quieter setting. North of Patong is the less crowded beaches of Kamala and Surin and just 10 minutes from the airport is Nai Yang. And don’t forget about Khao Sok National Park for animal lovers. Whatever your needs, Phuket has it all.



OUR FAVOURITE PLACES TO EXPLORE IN PHUKET



Elephant Hill
Elephant Hills

At Elephant Hills, Thailand’s first luxury tented jungle camp, you will have an experience like no other. There is no riding the elephants, the purpose of the camp is to be educated about these giant mammals. Elephant Hills offers two to four day soft adventure tours in and around the breath-takingly beautiful nature area of Khao Sok National Park. And all within easy reach of Phuket.

Phang Nga Bay
Phang Nga Bay

Enjoy a day trip cruising the water while being amazed at the limestone karsts that dot the landscape. Book a tour for the afternoon and explore the many caves before watching a dazzling sunset. When nightfall arrives, revisit the caves and witness the real magic; bright stars that carpet the sky, fireflies glinting, and amazing phosphorescence in the sea.

Thai Muang
Thai Muang

Thai Muang is a small Thai coastal town on the Andaman Coast in between Phuket and Khao Lak. Despite having a great coastline, deserted beaches, national parks, waterfalls and a Sea Turtle Sanctuary in the vicinity, it is often over looked by tourists.



SOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN PHUKET




Phuket Old Town Night Markets PHUKET OLD TOWN

A trip through a different era awaits here. Beautiful buildings with personality that are now museums to visit, quaint cafes to entice you in & grand Sino-Colonial mansions are a sight to be seen. Try the local drink of Oliang - a coffee made with condensed milk!  In the weekend, Night Markets are open, offering everything you can imagine from sunglasses to artwork. 

Splash Jungle Water Park SPLASH JUNGLE WATERPARK
 

Cool down on a day trip to Splash Jungle Waterpark, one of Thailand’s most impressive waterparks. Numerous waterslides offer a range of fun, from the easygoing Lazy River to the exhilarating Boomerango and Super Bowl. Alternatively, you can pamper yourself at the spa and sunbathe in the gazebo while the kids splash around. Located in central Phuket, this waterpark has something for everyone, making it fun for all ages.

Nightlife NIGHTLIFE
 

Nightlife – Patong is the place to head if you want to dance the night away. Bangla Soi, in the heart of Patong, changes from a hectic street in the day to an atmospheric pedestrian-only street at night. Restaurants and bars truly come to life – the vibrancy and energy pulses from each and every one. Take a meander down the street and check out where you may want to indulge in a drink.

Cooking Classes COOKING CLASSES
 

If you love Thai cuisine, why not learn how to create tasty aromatic dishes in a fun environment? Most resorts offer cooking classes a few times a week, so sign yourself up and get all the tips and tricks under your hat for when you return home to show off to your family and friends.

Spa SPA TREATMENTS

Many hotels and resorts have beautiful spa centres filled with gorgeous aromas and soothing sounds.  Alternatively, a treatment in an outdoor pavilion may be available.  Dotting the streets will also be several massage places, all at a much cheaper price than at home.
