Discover Phuket

Renowned for its alluring beaches and colourful nightlife - the wonders of Phuket will send your senses into overdrive. But there is certainly more to this captivating destination than meets the eye.

You'll find plenty of things to do in Phuket - from superb shopping to enchanting entertainment and fascinating religion and culture. Mingle with the locals at Phuket's markets - the vibe is electric and the food is delicious. Then embrace the 'megamall' experience of JungCeylon shopping mall. With a cinema and bowling alley, shopping is only part of its appeal. Get an insight into times past at Baan Chinpracha, an old colonial mansion or admire the splendour of Wat Chalong, one of Phuket's most important temples.



Shopping in Phuket is diverse and exciting, from the buzz of the markets to the grand scale of the shopping malls. Sample local delicacies as you absorb the bustling atmosphere of Phuket's weekend market or search for antiques and quirky gifts at Boran Boran. Treat yourself to a made-to-measure suit - try your hand at bartering to secure a great price.



Admire the distinctive and dramatic limestone karsts that rise from the glistening waters of Phang Nga Bay on an unforgettable day trip from Phuket or take in the spectacular views from Chalong's Big Buddha. Stroll around the old streets of Phuket town and admire the shrines and temples as you take in the rich history.



Thailand is renowned for it's incredible cuisine, whether you tantalise your taste buds with delicious street food or dine at the finest Phuket eateries. Wander amongst the atmospheric market stalls or grab Sunday brunch at the Oriental Spoon Twinpalms hotel. The floating restaurants of the east coast offer great seafood and sunset dining, while Raya House is famed for its unusual dishes.



Head towards the neon lights of Soi Bangla - Patong's liveliest party area or enjoy a sun downer at Ska Bar on Kata beach and star gaze to the soothing sound of reggae rhythms. For something different, listen to live heavy metal music at Rock City, sip chilled beverages at the Ice Bar or join the locals at a Thai Boxing match.



The west coast beaches range from Patong, a large beach with lots of water sports, bars and restaurants to the long golden sands of Karon and the excellent snorkelling of Kata Noi, or Little Kata beach. Head to the north for idyllic Laen Singh or visit Hat Mai Khee, which is part of Sirinat National Marine Park and the nesting ground of sea turtles from October to February.
