Unmissable sights in Phuket

Filled with some of the world’s best white-sand beaches, seaside resorts, and cultural attractions, Phuket is an ideal getaway for those who love the sun and the ocean. Witness the wonders of nature and the rich heritage of Thailand as you visit this tropical island in the Andaman Sea and make the most out of your trip with these top 10 Phuket tourist attractions!

Pa Tong

Explore the center of nightlife and one of the main beach destinations located on the west coast of Phuket! Pa Tong is most famous for Patong Beach, a 2.85-kilometer coast lined with a wide selection of restaurants and shops that offer a fun and wild nightlife experience. When the sun has set, get to enjoy the sparkling lights and lively music from an assortment of bars, clubs, and cabaret shows, which are best experienced in the popular Bangla Road. For those looking for a different experience, there are other beaches where you can go parasailing, hop on a jet ski, or have a relaxing massage without the crowd of tourists.

Karon Beach

Around 8 kilometers south of Pa Tong lies Karon Beach, a popular destination for families with children. With its crystal clear, turquoise waters and 3-kilometer stretch of white sand, you can rent beach chairs as you enjoy the stunning view or you can dive into some water sports such as parasailing that cost just a few Thai baht. Aside from staying at the beach, you can also grab a bite of fresh seafood and other Thai dishes at any of the nearby restaurants or go shop and try out exotic bugs at the Karon Temple Market.

Phuket FantaSea

Delve into another world at Phuket FantaSea, one of the most magical attractions among the different Phuket famous places. This theme park in Kamala showcases both Thailand’s rich heritage and colorful imagination through Fantasy of a Kingdom, a spectacular show featuring unique performances of acrobatics, impressive choreography, and a wonderful display of elephants, among many other exciting animals. Don’t worry about where to eat as the park has one of the largest buffet restaurants in the world where you can have your fill of international and local dishes, including vegetarian and vegan options.

Wat Chalong

Witness the gleaming red, white, and gold architecture of Wat Chalong, a beautiful Buddhist temple in Mueang Phuket. Covering the walls and ceilings are paintings and murals depicting significant parts of Buddha’s life. In the 60-meter chedi, you can see the Phra Borom Sareerikatat, a bone fragment of Buddha, enclosed in a glass display. Sometimes, firecrackers are set off as gratitude for answered prayers and wishes. Just like when you’re visiting other temples, tourists must pay their respects by following the dress code, including covering their shoulders and not wearing shorts.

Kata Noi Beach

Go on a peaceful getaway at Kata Noi Beach, a secluded destination on the southwest of Phuket. Have the island to yourself as you lay on the sand with a beach umbrella without the bustling crowd. With its calm waves, this is one of the best places to go snorkeling which is safe for families with children. There are also numerous choices of local restaurants and spas where you can relax and unwind! If you have the time, stay until sunset to see an incredible view of where the sea meets the sky.

Phuket Simon Cabaret

One of the most popular and unusual things to do in Phuket is reveling in the glitz and glamour of the Phuket Simon Cabaret. Thousands of visitors come to the theater in Sirirat Road to see the dazzling costumes and headdresses, and the distinct choreography and lip-syncing. Fill your evening with laughter, color, and musicality through the energetic performances that display the unique Thai culture. After the show, grab the opportunity to meet the actors and take memorable photos with them.

Thanon Bangla

Also known as Bangla Road, the lively Thanon Bangla is the heart of nightlife in Phuket. Conveniently located near Patong beach, this 400-meter street is the place to go to after sunset with its wide range of bars and clubs. Bask in the neon lights, roaring music, refreshing drinks, and energetic crowd of partygoers at the street that never sleeps. Between the maze of street food and live music performances, this is one of the must-visit locations in the city!

Kamala Beach

Hidden between the Andaman Sea and limestone cliffs on the west coast of Phuket is Kamala Beach, a holiday destination that’s slowly becoming more popular with tourists. With excellent waves during the high season, this is a favorite spot for surfers of different skill levels, along with other water activities to soak up the sun. For those looking for more romantic things to do in Phuket, you can enjoy an intimate dinner at the beachside restaurants, see the spectacular sunset view on the rooftop bars, or have a traditional Thai couple’s massage on your private island getaway!

Karon View Point

Offering stunning views of three of Phuket’s beaches, the glittering turquoise waters, and the lush forests of nearby islands, Karon View Point is a destination that you cannot miss! Located south of Kata Noi Beach, it’s best to rent a motorbike up to the vista to see the panoramic views. From early morning until evening, this is a popular viewpoint for those who want to witness the iconic coast and the skyline. Near the area, you can also spot sea eagles and take photos with them, or try one of the many restaurants offering authentic Thai food.

Kata Beach

Compared to the other beaches in Phuket, Kata Beach is that sweet spot between overcrowded and secluded. Featuring a beautiful golden coast and the bluest ocean, you can easily spend your day laying on the soft sand with rented sunbeds and relishing the fantastic views, especially at sunset. This is the ultimate destination to have some fun under the sun and to enjoy water activities like surfing or snorkeling! Kata Beach offers just the right mix of exciting and relaxing activities that cater to different kinds of tourists.

Why people love Phuket

Published 191 days ago
The day we arrived in Phuket, there was heavy rain, the weather was very closed, so we decided to send a request to klook to postpone the trip first because we didn't want to go out to the sea. Then someone from love andaman contacted you back and informed that you can go on a trip, check the weather and the boat can leave. So we decided to go diving to the Surin Islands as originally scheduled. The next morning, our family arrived at Thap Lamu pier. This morning the weather is very good, clear sky, beautiful sea. My daughter likes it very much, enjoying diving very much, thanks to klook and love andaman for accepting and coordinating information for customers to be comfortable in walking safely on this trip.

This is considered to be the better one for me to participate in several Phuket island activities. The two islands are very leisurely, the beach quality is good, the water is clear and the sand is young and you can sunbathe. There are also many options for water activities, and the snorkeling part is good, you can see fish and corals.

This is the best day of "snorkeling🤿" among the many island hopping in Phuket. The marine ecology is the best and the most pollution-free, the high-European low-level difference is large, and the visibility is high. Although the road is very long, it takes about 2 hours from Phuket to the pier. It will take another two hours from the pier to Surin Island, but it’s great value. Lunch plus a simple dinner. Regardless of the service, the entire service team prepares meals.

The plane landed early But the driver has arrived You don't have to waste time waiting at all, the driver is polite, drives very well, recommends traveling on the side of the road that you drive through, it's very convenient. If you come to Phuket again, definitely don't forget to use klook service.

This is our first time coming to Phuket and having the opportunity to go with Love Andaman. We are very impressed with Group Guide Nathalene Stephanie Ramie even though we are traveling alone. But the staff and guides provide services and take good care of the tour children. Who likes to watch the coral, but not like us swimming? There is an officer to let us stick to foam. To the dive site Saw parrot fish Many kinds of fish. At Similan, look for something and the weather is great. I've been with other tours, there is no staff to take me to dive like this. Snacks, snacks and snacks are never lacking. Next time I will go back to Phuket and go with LoveAndaman again. ♥ ️

Even though we are still praising that we are good, hahahahaha, who has never surfed must come here Bang Mad Tak Care is very good. Thank you. Next time, if going to Phuket again, I will book the study with Bang Bang, hahahahaha. There are children too. Surfing is better than you.
