About Phuket

The wide, beautiful beaches, white sands and emerald waters make Phuket the “Pearl” of the Andaman Sea. The zig-zagging west coast is dotted with three major beaches, Patong, Karon and Hat Kata, the main destinations for most tourists. The island is characterized by colorful entertainment experiences and rich nightlife. If partying isn’t quite your thing, you might choose to take a visit to Kamala Beach, famous for its cleanliness, or even Hat Surin for its privacy. An established tourist island, facilities and resorts are already quite developed, making this coastal village a delight to visitors both young and old.

Beach
Seashore
Located on the west coast of Phuket, about 15 kilometers from Phuket Town, Patong Beach is very lively. Its overall shape is like a horseshoe. The beach sand is soft, the water is clear and the waves are small. You can rent a chaise longue on the beach to watch the sea, experience a variety of exciting water sports, and enjoy the delicious seafood in the stalls. In addition to the lively beach, the beach roads on Patong are home to most of Phuket's hotels, resorts, shopping malls, restaurants and a lot of entertainment and business facilities that will definitely make you feel interesting at night. When night falls, Bangla Street, illuminated by neon lights, is rather beautiful.
Phuket FantaSea
4.4/5
1,819 Reviews
Theme Park
Phuket FantaSea is a Las Vegas-style theme park located on the Gold Coast of Kamala. It is famous for its colorful nightlife and is also a popular tourist spot in Phuket. Unlike other theme parks which have mechanical facilities, Phuket FantaSea is based on the theme of Thai culture. Its selling points are a giant buffet restaurant and cabaret shows. The Thai people regard it as their local Disneyland. Every night, Phuket FantaSea will have exciting performance programs such as song and dance, magic show, acrobatics and elephant performance, giving people a deeper understanding of Thai culture.
Karon Beach
4.6/5
1,545 Reviews
Beach
Karon Beach is located on the west coast of Phuket, south of Patong and north of Kata. Karon and these two beaches are known as the three major beaches of Phuket. Compared to Patong Beach, the coastline here is longer and wider, the water is clearer, the beach is softer, and there are fewer tourists. On this coastline of nearly 4 km, you can enjoy a view of the sea while walking. The location is lovely. The beach provides a beautiful view of the sea, but it has large waves, so be careful when swimming.
Phuket Town
4.4/5
2,221 Reviews
Town
Phuket Town is located in the southeast of Phuket Island and is the capital of Phuket. Phuket Town is an ideal place for spending a day or even two days. There are many gift shops, antique shops, galleries, bars, cafes, etc. on both sides of the town street. If you get tired, you can go inside any of them to have a rest. It is very pleasant. Sitting in the corner of a cafe, you can chat with friends and enjoy the street view, which is rather relaxing. There are not as many tourists in the town as there are on the beach. However, if you take a trip to the old town or visit the weekend market or sit down at the local tea restaurant, you will be impressed by the simplicity and culture here.

Trip Moments

Hechenwen   
Thailand's September climate is not so hot, it is very suitable for holiday travel, Bangkok's night market, Phuket's blue sky, Chiang Mai's small fresh, and Pattaya's enthusiasm. Which one do you like? Today, I recommend the southern Phuket of Thailand. Phuket not only has blue sea and blue sky, but also food, as well as traditional Thai culture. When I came to Phuket, what projects are worth going to? Going to the sea: When you come to the island, you can't miss the snorkeling or diving. The sea in Phuket is a beautiful and colorful underwater world. Philadelphia Photography World 3D Museum: Here you will find wonderful photography opportunities and make the most of your creativity. It was once a popular movie theater before 2002. Later it was transformed into a world of photography and a lot of "visual" traps were drawn and sculpted. It makes you feel like you are in a wonderful fantasy world. You will love it. Thalangmaneekram: This is the marketplace of antique buildings in Phuket. You can not only witness the market of ancient Phuket buildings, but also enjoy the performances of Phuket and local delicious food. Leap from Lin: Phuket has not only the sea, the sun, the beach, but also the dense forest. This is a great place to explore. You can shuttle through the jungle like a monkey. If you don't feel excited, you can experience the thrill of a roller coaster and make sure you scream. Food in Phuket: A two-day Phuket food festival with authentic Thai cuisine. Not only can you see the source of food, learn how to make local dishes, but also feel the Laguna Food Festival in Phuket, the Lobster Festival Siamese Vivid Theatre: you have seen a magnificent cultural performance. The wonderful performance tells the colorful Thai culture and everything about this ancient kingdom. In addition to exciting performances and delicious buffet dinners, you can stroll through the park, explore Thai villages, enjoy outdoor dance performances, and participate in a variety of games.

Bangkok
Chiang Mai
Phuket
For most people, New Years evokes memories of large celebrations. Perhaps it’s watching the ball drop in New York’s Times Square, perhaps it’s the fireworks from Sydney Harbour Bridge. In Thailand and other places throughout Southeast Asia, New Years is an excuse to have a massive water fight. Thailand’s traditional New Years festival, known as Songkran, is observed every year from April 13-15. To understand Songkran is to gain an appreciation of Thailand and Thai culture. In this travelogue, we explore the traditions around Songkran and delve into some recommendations for great places to participate in the festivities. Make sure you’ve got a change of clothes, because we’re going to get wet.
