Thailand’s largest island, Phuket offers a range of activities for luxury travelers for any length of stay. Here is a list of the top 6 activities to do in Phuket.
1. Nature Adventure, Elephant Trekking, & White Water Rafting
Lying in the midst of nature in all forms – limestone cliffs, forests, waterfalls, and rivers – Phuket offers adventure activities for tourists that love to get their adrenaline pumping on holiday. Ride on the back of an elephant and go down a scenic forest and river trails. Pair your trek through the jungle with some whitewater rafting while you are at it. You can also have guides organize tours to nearby waterfalls after your rafting adventure and finish up your adventure with a delicious Thai meal of fresh local produce.
2. Night Out in The Island
Phuket nightlife is famous all over the world. It does not matter whether you enjoy dazzling cabaret shows or dining at elegant beachfront restaurants, you will find both in Phuket. Or would you rather prefer spending the evening at a boxing stadium, watching two local heroes fight Muay Thai style? You can have that too, with bucket drinks to refresh you between rounds.
3. Experience the Real Thai Culture By Visiting Temples & Local Markets
Thai culture is most evident in the streets, temples and local markets of Phuket. Be sure to keep a day aside to immerse yourself in the local culture. The landmarks on your itinerary for the day should include a few Buddhist temples as well as the famous night market that is held every Saturday and Sunday evenings. You can have your own comfortable and flexible itinerary taken care of by expert and friendly guides that will be happy to customize tours for you.
4. Enjoy the White Pristine Beaches
Phuket’s beaches are sunny and draw tourists from across the world. Some may be teeming with activity, but there is always a secluded, pristine beach a boat ride away, just perfect for a luxury sunbathing session. While you are at the beach, you can also enjoy scuba diving, cave exploration, and other water activities in the waters around Phuket.
5. Hangout With Other Travelers & Locals At The Top Beach Clubs In The Island
Catch Beach Club, Nikki Beach, BIMI, Diamond Beach Club, to name a few are some of the most stylish contemporary beach clubs in Phuket where you can meet other travelers and locals on a groove, having booze, sunbathing, dipping in or dancing by the pool.
6. Charter a Luxury Yacht or Private Boats To Explore The Magical Phang Nga Bay
The Phang Nga Bay is stunning with karst limestone cliffs towering in the mists at dawn or displaying their colors in bright sunshine. Charter a luxury yacht or boat to travel through the waters of the Andaman Sea and Phuket Bay in luxury. Identify the Phang Nga Bay landmarks such as Koh Tapu and the village on stilts, Koh Panyee. At night enjoy the complete darkness under a starlit sky and lie back on cushions and watch the stars.
Phuket is a Mecca for tourists that seek a well-rounded holiday in luxury. It offers adventure, romance, culture, cuisine, and warm, lovely people as well as a balance of material pleasures and spirituality. In Phuket, you will experience Thailand at its most vibrant.
