Fast and Easy


Phuket has a lot more to offer its visitors other than its natural heritage, sea, sand, sky, beach, forest, and world renowned diving sites. Sino-Portuguese architecture casts its spell delighting travelers in the city, while Phuket-style hospitality has never failed to impress visitors from all walks of life. So, visit Phuket Town and its Sino-Portuguese houses, take in the sunset at Promthep Cape, enjoy shopping at the famous shopping center “Central Phuket Festival and King Power Duty Free, relax on Patong beach, Kata-Karon Beach and Rawai Beach.

King Power Duty Free Mall

King Power Phuket is effectively the same as the small collection of shops you see just after the security checks at Phuket International Airport, only on the scale of a shopping mall. It includes high-end fashion labels. It’s not just international brands, either. There is an impressive range of Thai crafts and souvenirs to choose from, too. If you do shop at King Power Phuket, you will need to prove that you are in Phuket on holiday and provide details of when you plan to collect your goods in order to make a purchase, so be sure to bring your passport and return ticket with you.

Naka Weekend Night Market

Naka Night Market is a hidden treasure of shopping and culinary delights. Anyone with an interest in either will love it there. The market even has several ice cold beer bars for those not so inclined to bargain hunt. It’s all fresh food, most of which is cooked right there on site, it’s very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. The market is only a few minutes out from Phuket Town, and is only open at the weekends from 4 pm until 10 pm.

Phuket Old Town centre

A must-do in Phuket is a walk in the old part of Phuket City, around Thalang, Dibuk and Krabi roads. The beautiful architecture along these roads will take you back to the charm of a century ago. 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 Centre Sunday Night Market

Phuket Walking Street and weekend market is called ‘Lard Yai’ by locals and is now the most popular attraction in Phuket Town. Downtown Phuket town you also have the ‘Indy Market‘ currently getting a facelift to become what apparently will be a small shopping mall. The Phuket Street Market brings the Indy Market concept to a whole new level in Thalang road, a beautiful old street very proud of being one the only road of the whole island free of any of those ugly electric cables usually hanging like a giant inextricable mess.

Peranakan Museum

“Peranakan Phuket Museum” is a brand new attraction, the first of its kind in Phuket, that will take you back in time to experience Phuket in the old days where you can experience firsthand on local showcases art, culture, history, traditional lifestyle, traditional costumes, local faiths, beliefs and Masterpiece of Peranakan Jewelry. The Museum incorporated the local knowledge, fun and interactive technology to enhance modern museum experience.

Central Festival Phuket

Central Phuket (Central Festival Phuket) is one of the few mega malls on the island (the other famous one being Jungceylon) and is a great stop for a rainy day. Rightly regarded as the shopping hub of the island, Central plays host to over 120 outlets selling products ranging from silk to sushi, from Levi's to laptops, from books to barbecues - if it isn't on sale at Central, you probably didn't need it anyway. It's literally possible to spend a full day here - shopping, catching the latest movies, and dining out at the range of international restaurants that offer everything from French cuisine to Japanese to local Thai outlets.


Chalong Temple

Wat Chalong, or Chalong Temple was built at the beginning on 19th century and its real name is Wat Chaiyathararam. Locals and many Thai tourists come to pray and pay respects to several revered monks who were the founders of Wat Chalong, among them Luang Pho Cham and Luang Pho Chuang, 2 monks, who led the citizens of Chalong Sub district fighting against the Chinese rebellion in 1876 and with their knowledge of herbal medicine helped the injured.

Big Buddha

Phuket's Big Buddha is one of the most important and revered landmarks on the island. The huge image sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills between Chalong and Kata and, at 45 metres tall, can be seen from as far away as Phuket Town and Karon Beach. Known among Thais as the Phra Puttamingmongkol Akenakkiri Buddha, the main statue was built in 2004 and is 25 meters across at the base. The lofty site offers the best 360-degree views of the island, with sweeping vistas of Phuket Town, Kata, Karon, Chalong Bay and more.

Chalong Bay

Chalong, located on the east-central side of Phuket, is a colourful combination of a port, residential area and shopping hub. Here, you will find the spiritual centre of the island with the striking hilltop Big Buddha and the beautifully ornate Wat Chalong. Chalong's most noticeable feature is its 720-metre long, seven-metre wide jetty, which replaced the rickety old wooden pier in 2001. A parking area and a number of restaurants, shops, tourist information kiosks and open-air waiting areas have been built to serve the many visitors passing through. 

Patong Beach

Patong is the most famous beach on Phuket. Patong Beach is an astonishing combination of breathtakingly beautiful white sand beach edged by the glittering Andaman Sea, and the most concentrated area of tourist accommodations, shops, nightclubs, restaurants and attractions. With its wide variety of activities and nightlife, Patong is an ideal place to party and play. By night the town has a bustling nightlife which includes literally hundreds of restaurants, beer bars, Go Go Bars and of course night clubs.

Rawai Beach

Rawai Beach, at the south end of Phuket island, is not a swimming beach but offers beautiful views on the many nearby islands in a peaceful local atmosphere. It’s a great place to enjoy great seafood. When driving south, the left side of the main pier was long known as the ‘Gypsy Village’, where long-established fishermen in rather precarious houses make a living of fishing, boat chartering and selling shells. Now it’s mostly famous for the crowded Rawai Seafood Market. It is also a good starting point to do some island hopping. 

Promthep Cape

Laem Phromthep or Phromthep Cape is the most famous viewpoint in Phuket. It is definitely worthy of a look and one of the must see tourist destinations in Phuket Island. There are extremely beautiful sunsets to be seen at the viewpoint, on a clear day at least. Often times, especially during the monsoon season, there will be distant clouds on the horizon, obscuring the sunset. At times this can enhance the natural beauty as the sky appears to be alight with fire. Other times, it is just a major let down.

Phuket Zoo

Phuket Zoo is a beautiful private zoo with an area of 12 ha inhabited by a big number of exotic animals. It was opened in 1997 and since that time is visited by thousands of tourists from all over the world. Phuket Zoo and several of the other animal attractions around the island give you an unrivaled opportunity to get far closer to some of the world's most powerful and majestic creatures than you would have thought possible. With the animals being encouraged to perform for large audience, they can be more like circuses than zoos, and this distinction can be jarring if you're not prepared for it.

Phuket Aquarium

The Phuket Aquarium is recently renovated and with thousands of tropical, colourful and exotic marine creatures. It is a hit with youngsters who may not have come up this close and personal with such unusual sea life before. Over 30 tanks of freshwater and saltwater creatures give children lots to reasons to point and say, “Mom, look!” The star attraction “The Tunnel at Phuket Aquarium” is a large tank with a tunnel through its centre. Inside, you’re surrounded by a kaleidoscopic swarm of rays, snapper, grouper, wrasse, sharks, and others.

Bird Park

Phuket Bird Park is located on 12 acers of land and is the only privately owned bird park on the Island. The park has over thousand birds of more than 100 amazing bird species from Asia, Africa and South America. By nestling them with in a beautiful garden with a natural waterfall, we have place them closest to their natural habitats. On top of that, visitors can enjoy the fascinating bird show on the large stage.

Botanical Garden

Phuket Botanic Garden in Chalong offers an alternative recreation choice for visitors; especially those with an interest in gardening. This orchid pavilion display, rain-forest garden, winter garden, with many rare plant species and more than 30 other selections will entertain the whole family. Each zone has its own characteristics and plant collections that will definitely grab your attention. It is a great place to enjoy 50 different varieties of cactus, some unique palm trees and the aromatic fragrant gardens themselves.

Chin Pracha House Museum

Baan Chinpracha on Krabi Road in Phuket is a fine example of a Sino-Colonial mansion. Visitors will have a sneak peek of how a wealthy Phuket family used to live many decades ago. The original owner, Phra Pitak Chinpracha, built it in 1903. The most attractive section inside Baan Chinpracha is the inner courtyard, which is open to the sky (originally with a well). In the old days, this central open area was the heart of Sino-Colonial style houses. It was here that you would find the women of the house chatting while cooking or doing the washing.

Mining Museum

Phuket Mining Museum is located in Kathu featuring displays ranging from tin mine models to a recreated scene in an opium den. In the past Phuket was a major tin-producing centre and drew thousands of Chinese labourers who eventually settled on the island. The museum covers the issue well with both outdoor and indoor exhibitions. Outside the building, visitors will see a few styles of tin mining methods as well as some actual equipment used in the old days. Once inside, there are many exhibitions including pictures illustrating the lives and working conditions of the workers.
