Woman watching the sunset in Phuket, one of the best things to do in Phuket.
This sunset is truly magical.

My eyes were closed. The scent of lemongrass filled up the room, I could only feel those gentle hands running through my back, up and down. This was our 2nd trip to Phuket, Thailand, and we decided to do things differently. I asked myself, are there things to do in Phuket beyond being a beach bum? The answer was: many great things! The massage and spa indulgence was only one of them!

If you search on the internet “what to do in Phuket”, Google will give you a list of beaches, crazy parties, attractions in Patong Beach, ping-pong shows and boat tours around Phuket. That’s great, it’s a tropical island, beach and party are definitely Phuket top attractions. However, let’s go beyond this and plan a holiday meant for more than just the typical Phuket tourist.

Let’s discover what to do in Phuket, Thailand that’s unique and will make your holiday unforgettable. It’s time to share with you our favorite activities in Phuket, what to do, the best beaches and where to stay.

 

Guide to what to do in Phuket Island

Our first trip to Phuket was all about getting to know the beaches and yes, we stayed at the famous [or infamous] Patong Beach, a Phuket must-see. 

The second time we choose another approach, we pampered ourselves, enjoyed cultural activities, and had a completely different experience. We manage to combine Phuket tourist attractions with secluded beaches, food and fun.

Now we know some of the best things to do in Phuket, and we want to prove that even a super touristy and famous destination can be surprisingly relaxing, tasty, and still unspoiled in parts. 

It’s time to share with you what to do in Phuket beyond Patong Beach attractions. I’m sure you will be surprised by the number of places to see in Phuket and the beauty of the best beaches on the island. At the end of the post, you will find a section about where to stay in Phuket, the best hotels, and how to get to Phuket.

Unique things to do in Phuket, Thailand

Are you ready to start planning your Phuket sightseeing itinerary? The first step is to imagine the ocean breeze on your face and the sun kissing your skin because that’s what you will feel when you start your vacation in Phuket.

There are so many beautiful places to go in Phuket that you can easily spend a week or two there. We have put together a thrilling list of Phuket things to do that will give you the chance to make incredible memories! 

 

» Pamper yourself, visit a Spa in Phuket

I’m a massage lover, and in Thailand, I discovered that I’m a Spa junkie too! Visiting a Thai spa has to be hands down one of the top things to do in Phuket! There is nothing better than being pampered for hours, scrubbed and soaked from head to toe.

Even Rob [not a big fan of spa] had a blast. We went for the three hours “Get Glowing Treatment” at Sukko Spa Resort and the result was relaxation to the highest level!

It’s ‘treat your self’ time!

The Spa was surrounded by green, with a swimming pool and smiling staff. I was treated like a princess from the moment we arrived to the goodbye. We got to choose the scent of our mud scrub, the oils for our massage, and to wrap up the session, a tea with tropical fruits.

There are many options for Spa in Phuket, we went to Sukko Spa and loved it. Their attention to detail, the massage therapist, and the place as a whole was sublime. If you are on the Island and don’t know what to do in Phuket on a rainy day, remember my words: Go to the Spa!!!

As a wellness hotspot, the island is also a popular destination for Thailand yoga retreats, some of the most serene places to visit in Phuket. The perfect match of yoga-friendly climate, picturesque beaches, and top-notch yoga retreats and holidays available all year round attract many yogis to the island.

 

» Cooking class in Phuket

Our second visit to Phuket was all about scents and aromas. The cooking class was the absolute pinnacle of it! Lemongrass, chilies, ginger, turmeric and many more spices.

The cooking class in Phuket is unique because Thailand Southern food has a different twist and it’s spicier. This is one of the more unusual things to do in Phuket as a tourist, but a great one.

The Blue Elephant cooking school is one of the best places to visit in Phuket for foodies.
Meet the Blue Elephant Cooking School.

At Blue Elephant Cooking School they taught us traditional dishes from Thai Royal Cuisine. First, we visited the local fresh market to learn about the ingredients. The second step was to follow the chef’s instructions and cook three different dishes: red curry with crab meat, green curry with soy protein, and catfish floss salad. Book your cooking class in advance here!

We cooked them from scratch. First, we prepared the curry paste, then the proper dish, and later we had a feast. I have to say, both my green curry and salad were yummy!

If you're looking for cool activities to do in Phuket, you should do cooking class.
Spicing things up 😲🌶️

This is another activity that you can do in Phuket on a rainy day. If cooking is not your thing, you should still go to the Blue Elephant for lunch or dinner, at the very least, as the building itself is one of Phuket points of interest. The place is gorgeous, the cooking school and restaurant are in a historical Sino-Portuguese mansion built 100 years ago. Surrounded by a huge garden the house itself is one of Phuket attractions.

 

» Watch the best sunset in Phuket

Sunsets in Phuket are always a spectacle, but if you want to see the best one, head to the Promthep Cape! I know, it’s a famous attraction in Phuket and it’s gonna be packed. But the truth is: this is the best sunset point on the island.

Sunset at the Promthep Cape is not one of those Phuket attractions for adults only, you can bring the whole family if you’re traveling together. Kids will love to run around the green and climb the rocks. 

If you’re looking for what to see in Phuket that will relax your entire spirit, a sunset is a must!
What a view!

However, if you love to watch sunsets alone, like us, you can follow our suggestion and go to a different spot. Not as popular as the Promthep Cape, the windmill viewpoint, along the road that connects Yanui and Nai Harn beaches, is one of the places to go in Phuket to watch the sun go down.

Sit back, relax, enjoy the view, and drink from a coconut [or have a beer]. If you’re looking for what to see in Phuket that will relax your entire spirit, a sunset is a must!

The windmill view is one of the best attractions in Phuket.
If this ain’t perfection, I don’t know what is.

 

» Rent a motorbike and explore Phuket island by yourself

We are talking about what to do in Phuket, and I almost forgot the most important one: rent a motorbike and explore the island at your own pace and will. It’s a great way to experience Phuket activities and places. You can travel easily with a scooter and reach the top attractions in Phuket without spending much time in traffic, as it would happen if you were by car. Plus, you won’t need to bargain with taxi or tuk-tuk drivers.

Renting a scooter is the best way to get around Phuket Island.
Adventure mode! Getting around Phuket on two wheels!

However, be careful when renting a scooter! Choose a motorbike that is in good condition, take photos of it, and always ask for a receipt after paying.

Also, if your travel insurance doesn’t cover motorbike accident, pay for local insurance at the shop. We use World Nomads travel insurance and endorse them. You can choose your coverage and check the price hereIf you need more information, read our Travel Insurance Guide here.

Don’t forget to bring your driver’s license, even better if you have an international one. To help you organize all the essential travel documents, we put together a document checklist for international trips, follow it and have a stress-free holiday!

 

» Boat tour in Phuket Island

Traveling to a Thai Island and skipping a boat tour is the same as going to Roma and not visiting the Vatican. So, book a boat tour around Phuket or to the islands nearby! There are plenty of offers, companies and routes. It’s hard to say which one is the best boat tour as it all depends on what you want to see in Phuket, what type of experience you want to have, and your budget. Have a look at GetYourGuide Boat tours, they have excellent experiences and you can read the reviews to choose the perfect boat trip for you. Sailing is something everyone must do in Phuket!

Going on a boat tour is super fun.
A boat tour in Phuket, just go for it 😄

Looking for a boat tour in Phuket with snorkeling? Book a trip to the Similan Islands. You can also visit Koh Phi Phi; there are daily speed boat tours from Phuket to Koh Phi Phi [be aware it is a long journey, and it can be a bit tiring].

Or, if you want to relax, enjoy nature, have a good lunch and swim, choose a boat trip around Phuket island. We did the boat tour with Dolphin Seaways and, despite the bad weather that hit us halfway on the tour, we had a lot of fun. The water was so clear and warm that the rain didn’t bother us at all. One thing is true, your sightseeing in Phuket will only be complete after exploring the island itself and its stunning waters.  Here is a similar tour that you can book online and save time.

 

» Visit Phuket Town Attractions 

Still talking about unique things to do in Phuket beyond its beautiful beaches (we’re talking about them below), take at least half a day of your trip to visit Phuket Town.

Phuket Town is beautiful and packed with history. You will find an interesting mix of Chinese and Portuguese architecture there, dragons and Buddhist temples along with tiles and colonial buildings.

Take at least half a day of your trip to visit Phuket town.
Lovely Phuket Town.

The old town is one of those Phuket must-see places! It is also the best place to buy souvenirs, enjoy local cuisine at cheap and nice restaurants. If you are visiting the town by scooter, park it near Dibuk, Krabi or Thailand roads and walk around.

 There are many things to do in old Phuket Town and at night time this part of the island comes alive. The famous Phuket Street Market opens every Sunday from 4 pm to 10 pm on Thailand Road. You can’t miss it.

In case you want to join a private tour check out these experiences and discover the best things to do in Phuket old town.

 

Beaches in Phuket and other attractions

Now that you have already discovered what to do in Phuket Island, it’s time to talk about beaches! Oh yeah, baby!! As much as we love culture, food and architecture, good beaches are still our priority when traveling to a Thai island, and Phuket is no different.

Nai Harn is one of the best beaches in Phuket.
Nai Harn 🧡

Phuket is big. In our two trips combined, we didn’t manage to visit all the beaches but did explore some incredible ones. If you follow our suggestion and rent a scooter it will be easy to go to the best beaches in Phuket and even find new ones. Our routine was: wake up early, breakfast, pack some fruits and our snorkeling gear, hit the road. Most of the days we would be back at the hotel around 9 pm, exhausted and happy!

 

Best beaches in Phuket you can’t miss!

One of the top things to do in Phuket is to enjoy the bliss of the many dreamy beaches! Behold, the next photos may cause severe wanderlust!

Secluded Mai Khao Beach.
Looks like a painting, no? It’s Mai Khao Beach!

» Mai Khao Beach – our favorite beach in Phuket!

This is the address of luxury resorts in Phuket and the beach is still preserved and almost empty. Mai Khao Beach is 11 kilometers long with golden sand and blue sea. Amazing and unspoiled! It’s our favorite beach in Phuket, and by the photo above you can understand why.

» Karon Beach

Between Patong and Kata Beach, Karon has good sea, clean sand, and it’s not as crowded as its neighbors. Read our guide to Karon Beach here.

» Kata Beach

Long beach with turquoise sea. Famous for the dining and nightlife scene, it’s the second-most touristic beach on the island.

Sand, salt and love.

» Kata Noi Beach

A small version of Kata Beach, this tiny place is quieter and mostly frequented by the resort’s guests. Can be tricky to find it, but worth a visit and a swim.

» Kamala Beach

It’s a 2-kilometer beach, quiet and preserved. You will find bars and restaurants. The crystal-clear water, the rocks and the pine trees create a perfect place to relax!

Looking for the best beaches in Phuket? We got you covered.
Check out these beautiful contrasts.

» Nai Yang Beach

Part of this beach belongs to Sirinath National Park, so remains unspoiled and very quiet. The other part is more developed with bars and restaurants. The food is cheap and the vibe is great!

» Nai Harn Beach

Small beach, not so urban [yet]. There are few hotels in the area and luxury condos. The beach is still green with super clean water.

 

»Patong Beach tourist attractions

Patong is the most famous beach in Phuket, Thailand. It is crowded, full of tourists, bars, night clubs, restaurants and shops! There is an unending amount of things to do in Patong. Love it or hate it! You must go there and see it with your own eyes.

I always say that Patong is not as bad as most people think, but of course, it’s not the best beach in Phuket. You should visit Patong, but don’t stay only there.  The good side is that in Patong you can find everything you want and need – there are plenty of things to do in Patong Beach!

However, along with all the facilities come the noise, the pollution, the drunk people, the ping-pong shows and prostitution.

If you are on a tight budget Patong Beach is one of the best places to stay.
Welcome to Patong 🍻🥂

If you are on a tight budget or looking for parties, then Patong Beach Phuket is the place to be. Nice and cheap hotels are well spread along the beach. Western food, Thai restaurants, and food stall are in every corner. I’m not here to write a Patong guide, but I can tell you that you can enjoy the beach, go parting, shopping and do watersports in Patong, all in one place. That’s why so many tourists choose to spend their vacation in Patong Beach; it’s an easy, practical, and fun place to be.

Are you looking for things to do in Phuket at night? Then you will probably end up there. The party scene is huge and is part of the many Patong Beach activities. On our first trip to Phuket, we chose to stay in Patong beach and no regrets. It was one of the fun things to do in Phuket, Patong is busy all the time and you can’t get bored there. Also, from Patong we could reach all the other beaches, we got a good hotel deal, and we also had great nights out.

I almost forgot to mention, the list of what to do in Patong Beach also includes food markets, massage, tattoos and cabaret shows.

 

More tourist attractions in Phuket

Our list of what to do in Phuket is not over yet. Not as unique as the other attractions, and not as appealing as the best beaches, but here are some other activities and places to visit in Phuket:

» Big Buddha

It’s a 45 meters tall white Buddha. You can see the statue from almost every part of the island. The view there is stunning. It’s a religious place, so be respectful when visiting it!

» Wat Chalong

It’s the most visited Buddhist temple on the island, it was built in the 19th century. If you want to understand a bit more about Thai Buddhism here is the place to go.

» Fantasea

It’s a mix of a funfair, shops, Thai dance and performances. Not our cup of tea.

» Simon Cabaret

Stunning Ladyboys, amazing choreography and fun! The show is always packed, so better to book a table in advance.

When exploring the island, you’ll see signs pointing to Elephant Camps or Elephant Sanctuary in Phuket. We don’t endorse either recommend activities to do in Phuket that involve wildlife or Elephants. I know it’s your holiday and you might want to do something unique, different, or adventurous, but let’s be honest, the list of stuff to do in Phuket is vast; you don’t need to endanger the life of any animal, neither promote unethical tourism to have a good time. Protect the wildlife and don’t ride elephants. 

 

Food, delicious food » Where to eat in Phuket

Along with all of the amazing things to see in Phuket, the island is also a food paradise! We love Thai food, and after 7 months traveling around the country, we learned to eat [and like] Thai spiced dishes, unique flavors and different fruits. 

In Phuket, we found a good balance, a huge offer of delicious Thai street food for an affordable price, and amazing restaurants serving western and Thai cuisine. Below are some of the good places to eat in Phuket that we have tried and recommend:

Seafood with a view at Kan Eang​@Pier restaurant.
This setting is just perfect.

» Kan [email protected]

Seafood with a view! Perfect for a nice dinner, the restaurant has an open area in front of Chalong Pier. If you like seafood, here is a good place to taste it!

» Sala Phuket Restaurant

One of the best restaurants we visited in Thailand. A brilliant twist between Thai food and Western dishes, everything so fresh and tasty. Hard to say what we liked the most: the lamb, the duck, or the wine selection. Perfect for a romantic dinner!

» Raya Thai Cuisine

If you are in Phuket town and want to try local food in a cozy atmosphere go to Raya Thai Cuisine. Not as cheap as street food, but the flavors are worth every penny. The deep-fried fish was delicious!

 

Where to stay in Phuket, Thailand?

If you type on Google “Where to stay in Phuket Island” the avalanche of results will drive you crazy, and I bet it will be hard to choose the best hotel in Phuket or the perfect match for your trip. So keep reading, below we’ll share precious info about accommodation in Phuket and the best websites to book them! Easy peasy!

» Budget hotels in Phuket

If you are traveling to Phuket on a budget, your best bet is to find a place to stay in Patong Beach or in Phuket Town. These are the best places in Phuket for cheap and comfy hotels, from shared rooms to big private apartments. You can also find expensive resorts there, but if you are looking for a luxurious hotel in Phuket, then there are better beaches to stay in.

We chose to stay in Patong Beach on our first trip to Phuket, at the far end of the beach towards Simon Cabaret and Karon Beach. Nice hotels, fair prices, and not as busy as the center of Patong. We stayed at Happy Fish, a guest house managed by an Italian guy. Bright and big rooms, aircon and a balcony. Good coffee served in the shop beside the reception.

Another good option for accommodation in Patong Beach is Mazi Design Hotel. It has big rooms, wifi, a swimming pool, and a restaurant. A good hotel for a fair price. It was refurbished the year after we stayed there, so I bet it’s even better now. For the best budget hotels in Phuket, we recommend looking at Agoda or Booking.com.

You can find budget and middle-range hotels on Kamala Beach, Karon and Kata. These beaches offer some of the best places to stay in Phuket for family and couples.

» Luxury hotels in Phuket

Phuket has the best luxury hotels you can imagine and want! Mai Khao Beach is the address of hotels like Renaissance, Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas, and many more. It’s also the best place to visit in Phuket if you want to enjoy a secluded beach without the crowds. 

Another address for luxury resorts in Phuket is Bang Tao Beach. The beach offers 6 km of turquoise water and hotels like Banyan Tree PhuketOutrigger Laguna Phuket and Angsana Laguna Phuket.

Villa with private pool in Mai Kao Beach.
Sala Phuket is magnificent!!

Our pick for a luxury stay in Phuket is Sala Phuket Hotel. It is beyond superb! We got our private villa with a swimming pool, garden, open-air bathtub, and a room that has all the comfort you need in a modern style. We loved it! Not only because it is luxurious, but because they pay attention to all the details.

Fruits and fresh tea delivered to your room every night. Signature organic soap, body lotion, and shampoo; buffet and a la carte breakfast, movie sessions in the garden… Plus all the amenities you expect from a 5-star hotel. Our stay at Sala Phuket, the only problem is that the hotel is so good that we didn’t want to leave our villa.

  3. Spent a month in Thailand this year but didn’t get a chance to visit Phuket. It’s nice to see the other side of Phuket. We rented a scooter in Ao Nang, Thailand for the first time and agree that it is a great way to navigate any island.

  4. Thanks for sharing this guide! I prefer doing the more “unconventional” things when visiting a city and you have some great suggestions here. I’d LOVE to do the cooking class and learn how to do a proper curry. I also like your idea with the motorbike!

  5. I wish I had read this before I went to Phuket! This October I did more travelling in Thailand and went south for the first time. I loved Krabi/Islands but didn’t enjoy Phuket at all. I thought Patong beach was dirty and overcrowded. Nothing was authentic. I wish I’d known about some of the nice places and less touristy beaches on your list. Thanks for sharing your tips. I’d go back and explore more next time

  6. I really loved reading about all there is to do in Phuket. To be honest, I am not a beach person at all. I can admire its beauty, but that’s about it. When I planned my trip to Thailand, I went north and east instead of south because of this. I would visit to enjoy the local scene, the cooking classes, the spas, and even the ladyboy cabarets! Thanks for showing there is more to Phuket than sun, sand, and sea.

    Reply
    • I’m like you too!! I don’t like bathing in the sun but I can definitely admire the beauty of it. I prefer to do other things than just laying around just tanning and drinking. So happy to hear there are others like me.

    • Hey!!!
      That´s awesome to know!! Hope you have a great time here in Thailand! Enjoy Phuket and the islands, but also come to the mountains, Chiang Mai is a really nice city. We have been here for the past two month and enjoying it a lot. Last week we publish an article about trekking in the mountains and roasting our own coffee here in Chiang Mai, a really cool experience, you should try!
      All he best and safe trip!

  9. Amazing photos Natalie.

    I also rent a motorbike every time down in Phuket – just need to be super careful as the roads are the second most dangerous in Thailand and full of (often inexperienced) tourists. Only Koh Samui has a higher rate of accidents.

    • Thanks Stefan!!
      Rob is the one responsible for the photos and he is taking it very seriously! 😉
      About the traffic and accidents your are so right, all tourist must be very careful while driving in Thailand. We have never had an accident, Thank God, but we always drive slow, with helmets and trying to follow all the local rules…

  15. dear Natalie,
    I was inspired by your post and pics and decided to go for Phuket as my honeymoon destination, a few questions though:
    1- is the Sala Phuket a good choice for a honeymoon resort ?
    2- also if we stay in the Sala Phuket for the whole 6 nights would it be easy to make most of the activities u guys did ?
    3- I know its a private resort a bit away from the city- life, would you recommend it knowing that the beauty of Phuket is to see most of it and visit all of its beaches and boat tours, activities ( water ) etc.. ?

    thanking you in advance

    best regards

    • Hello Bilal,
      Sorry for the late reply, busy days over here…
      Let’s go:
      1 – Absolutely yes!
      2/3 – Yes if you rent a motorbike/scooter, then you have freedom to explore the island. Renting a car is also an option although the traffic can be a pain…

  18. I’ve never been to Phuket Town because I always think to myself “it’s too far and there’s no beaches nearby”, but wow the colonial buildings look awesome and remind me of Goa.

    Do you think it’s worth spending a day or two there or will a day trip be enough?
