Few islands can boast of such an abundance of sandy beaches and clear waters as Phuket. The winding coastal roads along the west coast of this 540 square kilometers island offer stunning views and easy access to some of the world’s finest beaches.
For more adventurous, take out a sea kayak or go diving. There are several beaches in Phuket such as Naiharn beach, Kata beach, and Yanui beach. Also several islands like Racha island, Coral island, and Phi Phi island for you to explore.
The three best-known waterfalls in Phuket are Bang Pae, Ton Sai, and Kathu Waterfall. A lesser-known one is just by Ao Yon Noi beach, near Cape Panwa. Bang Pae and Ton Sai waterfalls are located in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park in the east of Phuket. The park itself is the last vestige of virgin tropical forest on the island and is home to many exotic animals such as barking deer, and various types of monkeys as well as many tropical birds.
Thai fresh markets are cornucopias of colorful fruit and vegetables, prepared snacks and food, chunks of red or green curry, dried foods, unrecognizable merchandise, dodgy CDs, DVDs, and computer games and brightly hued t-shirts and jeans, hair accessories, handicrafts, and all at bargain prices.
Unlike many Thai provincial capitals, Phuket town fairly shines with personality and nowhere more so than its Old town. In this historically rich part of town, you will find shrines, temples (Buddhist and Chinese), ornate and beautifully preserved (shophouses), quaint cafes, tiny printing shops, impromptu private and public museums, and even a mini ex-red light district.
Phuket weekend market, located along Chao Fa west road just outside Phuket Town not far from Central Festival, is a fascinating jumble of secondhand goods, curios, pirated items, live animals, and a large amount of great local food to sample. It really is worth a visit even if you are not planning on buying anything.
Though there is no swimming area, shopping, and sampling the local cuisines are other fun things to do in Promthep Cape. You can shop for trinkets made of shells, batik clothes, beachwear, t-shirts, and Thai silk since the prices are fairly inexpensive at the stalls in the Promthep marketplace. If you feel adventurous, do try out the roasted coconut drink from the local vendors.
After the last rays of the setting sun fade, you can unwind and savor some fresh local Thai seafood at Promthep restaurant. It has an open air setting which offers a fascinating night view of the Cape as well and the surrounding area. This is one of the best restaurants with a view in Phuket island. Viewing the sunset and thereafter, having a relaxed informal or even a romantic dinner are two of the best things to do in Promthep Cape.
Phromthep Cape is the island’s most photographed and perhaps best-known location. Every evening, large tour buses, scooters, and private cars sweep through Rawai beach and up the island’s southernmost hill in order to watch the sunset at its peak. On the top of the hill stands a busy car park where vehicles disgorge crowds of people from every corner of the world. Cameras flash, fingers point, and lovers cuddle as Phuket’s most fabulous free show is re-enacted nightly the sunset.
Phuket old town was built on riches reaped from Phuket’s tin boom of last century when the metal was an extremely valuable commodity. In this quarter of the town, you will see grandiose Sino-colonial mansions, once occupied by Phuket’s tin barons of 100 years’ ago. Phuket old town is compact enough to stroll around in. The best time to do this is early in the morning or after the day has lost its heat.
Captivating ladyboy performers attract throngs of people every night at the hugely popular Phuket Simon cabaret. Not as well known but well worth seeing is the new (Aphrodite) in Phuket Town, which runs three cabaret shows every evening.
Many more of the same can be seen at some of the Soi Paradise bars and at the Moulin Rose at the end of the famous Soi Katoey (Katoey literally translated means ladyboy). See also where to party if you are into Ladyboy shows and more at the paradise complex. Some of the best cabaret shows in Phuket are Fantasea, Simon's cabaret, and Aphrodite.
