Phuket is undoubtedly one of the more popular islands in Thailand. It’s not surprising as there’s certainly something for everyone in Phuket! It may be small geographically, but you won’t run short of fun things to do in this part of Thailand.
In this post, Riverhouse Phuket shares some fun things you should try to do while in Phuket:
Go Kayaking in Phang Nga Bay
Book a kayaking day trip in Phang Nga Bay and make sure it will take you to the Hongs, which are caves on the islands. If possible, try to stay overnight in one of the bungalows in one of the islands. This is an excellent activity if you don’t like going to the more touristy locations where there are lots of people at all times.
Try Water Rafting on the Phang Nga River
Rafting is an exhilarating way to spend a day in Phuket. If you’re up for an adrenaline-pumping experience, then this is for you. You get to go and ride the rapids of the Phang Nga river in the middle of the jungle, then, you can go to the Monkey Cave or enjoy a meditative time in the temples. If that’s not enough adrenaline rush yet, you can double the fun by zip lining or riding an ATV.
Ride the Waves at Kata Beach
Do you prefer saltwater to the river? Perhaps surfing is better suited for you. Kata beach is definitely like a paradise with its fine sand and pristine waters. It’s the best place to visit if you want to surf, snorkel, or simply enjoy a relaxing day with your friends or family. You can get a group or private surf lessons with a professional surfing instructor, too!
Go Fishing in the Andaman Sea
If you’re an avid fishing enthusiast, you should not miss out on the chance to do it in Phuket! The Andaman sea is where you’ll find some of the biggest fishes you’ll ever lay eyes on. You can get assistance from professional fishers. Some of them will even lend you their equipment and give you tips!,
Dive Underwater and Explore the Similan Islands
Another option for a memorable activity is going diving in the waters of Elephant Head or the East of Eden. You’ll find that the waters of Thailand have a lot to offer when it comes to marine life. The Similan Islands are considered the best diving spots in the country.
Visit the Big Buddha
Now when you’re ready for a more chill activity, visiting the Big Buddha right at the top of the Nakkerd Hills should be one of the first things you do. Whether or not you’re religious, you’ll surely appreciate the 45-meter-high statue. It also offers a breathtaking view of the entire island.
Meet Elephants and Monkeys
If you’re an animal lover, you should definitely allot a day or two to go see the monkeys and elephants of Thailand. You can play with cute monkeys at Monkey Hill or you can enjoy the sight of gentle giant elephants at the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary – the first-ever ethical elephant park in the area.
These are just some of the most exciting activities you can try when you’re in Phuket. There are lots more that you can try, but these are the ones that you definitely shouldn’t miss. These are also some of the best reasons to consider having a property investment in Phuket.
