Things To See In Phuket

Spend some time just marveling at the structure or take a walk in the garden nearby and be surprised at the sheer number of birds and monkeys that visit the area unmindful of the humans standing nearby.

Note: The Phuket Buddha Statue and the area on which it stands are said to be sacred for the locals. So make sure that you wear appropriate clothing when you visit the area. Avoid wearing shorts or tops that expose your shoulders.

For Beach Lovers: The Laem Sing Beach

Of course there are plenty of beautiful beaches in Phuket. However, if you want a beach all to yourself with little or no disturbance around, you can head out to the Laem Sing Beach which is located quite close to its comparatively crowded neighbor, the Surin Beach.

Rent some sand chairs and work on your tan. Or try some snorkeling near the colorful reefs. If you feel hungry, you can choose from a myriad of eateries lining the beach that offer some of the most delectable foods you would have ever tasted.

Shopping is also quite fun at the Laem Sing Beach what with the locals trying to sell you something or the other. And if you feel bored, you can always visit Surin Beach for some more fun in the sun and sand.

For the Adventurer: Cable Jungle Adventure

Imagine zipping past canopies of trees at high speeds while dangling from heights of 6-30 meters with nothing but a cable to support you. If just thinking about it gives you the chills, then you most definitely need to try it out in person.
