Ride an elephant down jungle trails, discover hidden sea caves by canoe, explore secret bays and beaches or lie by the pool in one of the many luxurious but affordable resorts that hug Patong Beach. Looking for more? Thailand's holiday hot spot has something for everyone. There is much to discover further afield, and the island's excellent roads make it easy to explore with a Phuket car rental. Check out the impossible but very real James Bond Island, a naturally occurring vertical island that was made famous by the film "The Man With the Golden Gun," or learn about gibbons at the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project. You can also head out to the Chalong Bay Rum Distillery for a tour, and sip on some fresh mojitos.
A host of world-class shopping centres have sprung up in Phuket over the past decade, brimming with international brands. The best centres can be found in Patong, and if you're still in the area when the sun sets, you’re in for a good time—the main drag hugging the beachfront transforms into a giant outdoor market at night. Alternatively, you might like to head across the island to Phuket Town for clothing boutiques, local crafts and Thai silk.
Dining in Phuket is a treat, as it provides some of the best Thai food in the country. Seafood is the standout, and the dishes come piled high with succulent fare caught fresh by local fishermen. Enjoy an afternoon meal by the sand, and you're more than likely to see what's on the menu being brought straight from the water. Patong, Kata and Karon Beaches and Phuket Town itself all have excellent eateries that range from top-rated restaurants to humble roadside cafes, as well as bars. Not tired yet? Grab one of our affordable
Phuket packages and discover hundreds of ways to own your piece of the island's legendary nightlife. Warm up with a cocktail or beer at one of the many bars in the main beach areas. Karon and Kata offer quieter alternatives, while Patong's Bangla Road is the vibrant epicentre where anything goes. Street-front bars offer hard-to-resist drink deals, loud music and dancing. Thumping nightclubs regularly bring in top international DJs, so check gig guides to see who's in town.
