About Phuket

An idyllic island destination, Phuket Province is home to some of Thailand’s top coastal resort towns that are blessed with white-sand beaches, late-night partying, local markets and delicious seafood. The province also boasts fascinating museums, live cultural shows and enthralling family-friendly attractions.

Things to do

Most visitors to Phuket Province make a beeline for Patong, a thriving resort town overlooking the Andaman Sea. This lively destination is filled with cocktail bars, hawker centres, fine-dining restaurants and contemporary shopping malls. However, its biggest draw is the palm tree-lined beach where you can enjoy water sports, inflatable obstacle courses and booze cruises.

If you prefer something a little more laid back, head to Karon Beach. This coastal town has its fair share of nightlife and entertainment, but also boasts quiet stretches of white-sand beach. Venture up to the Karon View Point for panoramic vistas of the Andaman Sea and lush inland forests before interacting with elephants at the Khok Chang Kata Safari.

The region’s capital city, Phuket, is home to numerous museums, including the fascinating Phuket Trickeye Museum, which boasts trompe l’oeil wall paintings. Visit the nearby Thavorn Museum for 1960s decor, curiosities and memorabilia. Thalang Road offers a long strip of designer fashion stores, hawker stalls and restaurants, along with the bustling Phuket Weekend Market.

Are you visiting Phuket Province with your family? Treat the family to the entertaining Phuket FantaSea show, which includes a delicious buffet. Head to Sirinat National Park to spot nesting sea turtles or visit the Phuket Aquarium to get up close with marine life in underwater tunnels and at the touch pool.

Getting around

Phuket Province is best reached by flying into Phuket International Airport near the northernmost point of the province. You can get around most towns and cities using tuk-tuks, taxis and buses, while hire motorbikes and cars offer more flexibility.
