Take a drive along the south coast of the island between Kata Beach and Promthep Point. This is truly one of the most beautiful and scenic drives anywhere in the world. The drive takes less than an hour, so stop at each rest area and delight in the stunning views.
Take a visit to nearby Phang-Nga Bay (by Sea Canoe or or small boat if possible). You will be missing one of the true natural wonders of the world if you miss this opportunity to appreciate the striking rock and limestone formations and spectacular scenery of this amazing bay.
Experience the majestic rainforest by walking a few of the trails at one of the national parks. The easiest to reach, and one of the most interesting, is Khao Phra Thaeo National Park located on the north end of Phuket Island.
Drive the north coast and enjoy the sensation of having a tropical beach all to yourself.
Watch the sunset from Cape Promthep, then dine on seafood at Kang Eng Restaurant in Chalong Bay.
Visit the Night Market in Phuket Town, enjoy the enormous selection of Thai food, fruit and desserts -- all at incredibly low prices.
Khao Rang Hill in Phuket Town affords a beautiful view of Phuket Town and is a great place to enjoy a lunch or dinner.
Have your fortune told while you visit the famous Wat Chalong.
Have a traditional Thai massage. Those staying in the Patong Beach area can easily reach the Hide-away Spa and enjoy this relaxing traditional Thai herbal spa and massage.
- Get off the beach in front of your hotel or apartment in Phuket and go somewhere.
