Phuket's 40 kilometres of beautiful sunny coastline are pristine and the huge range of tropical resorts, hotels, villas and apartments mean that couples, families and party-goers alike can find their own slice of heaven. Watersports abound on the palm-fringed beaches and kids big and small will enjoy endless hours of snorkelling, diving, sailing and more. For those looking to relax - you've come to the right place. There are plenty of things to do in Phuket, chill out with a massage on Kata beach, visit Ao Phang Nga National Park and snorkel at Coral Island – just off the southeast coast.

From clifftop restaurants with spectacular views to vibrant market stalls selling traditional Pad Thai noodles, the dining scene in Thailand is a huge draw. Browse our Phuket holiday deals and head to the popular western resorts of Patong and Karon, two of the best places to stay in Phuket, where you can sample lively streets, luxury hotels, excellent shopping and a strong nightlife scene. While you can get ready to fall in love with picturesque sea views, long coastal promenades, restaurants and cool cocktail bars in relaxing resorts Rawai and Kamala. Phuket holidays are the perfect place to enjoy some island hopping – so pack your camera, snorkel and sarong and glide across the kaleidoscopic waters to tiny tropical islands, reefs and secluded beaches. Our cheap hotels in Phuket mean you can escape to this paradise island last minute, or treat the whole family to a dream getaway without spending big.

When to Visit

 

 

When to Visit

Phuket has a tropical climate, which means it’s never freezing. The peak season is from November to February, when the weather is cool and dry, with temperatures hovering between a toasty 23°C and 30°C. After that, the mercury hits the mid-thirties and soars until May. While you can expect rain from June to October, it’s a great time to visit since you’ll encounter less tourist crowds – plus we’ll have great last minute deals available too.

Food and Drink in Phuket

 

Food and Drink in Phuket

You’ll be met by an abundance of excellent Thai and International bites while you’re in Phuket. Feast your eyes (and bellies) on cuisines ranging from Italian and Middle Eastern to Indian and Japanese. If you're searching for street-food, you'll find it at Phuket Town Central Markets and the bustling Banzaan Night Market in Patong Beach, where stalls abound with exotic fruits, seafood, meat, vegetables and clothes too. For a more sophisticated setting, Mom Tri’s Kitchen in Kato Noi is famed for world-class cuisine including iconic Phuket Lobster, or Baan Rim Pa on Patong Beach is a favourite for authentic Thai dishes. Convenience and affordability make it the meal of choice for visitors and locals alike, so it's safe to say you won't go hungry here!

 
Top Beaches

 

Top Beaches

Phuket beaches offer something for everyone. Party central Patong, popular for its noisy bars and restaurants, is also among the world’s top diving sites. Unwind at Bang Tao Beach, a long stretch of sand where you can lounge or go paragliding and waterskiing. Grab a beer at Karon, walk down to laid-back Kata or go for a swim on Surin Beach. Spend the afternoon at Rawai Beach and catch a perfect sunset over the bay at Phromthep Cape. Venture off the southern coast to discover the powdery soft sands of Coral Island, its waters teeming with colourful fish and Racha, where you can go fishing, diving or horse-riding – the options are endless.

 
Sail and Explore

 

Sail and Explore

Islands and kayak trips are very popular. Get one step closer to nature in Phang Nga Bay, by hopping on a Chinese junk boat or traditional sea-kayak and exploring the breathtaking caves and lagoons. Alternatively, sail around the bay looking across to the fishing village Koh Panyee and James Bond Islands' cliff-like karsts that jut out of the water, before stopping at a hidden beach – ultimate paradise.

 
Shopping in Phuket

 

Shopping in Phuket

Shop till you drop on your Phuket holidays at lively night markets, open-air food stalls and high-end department stores. Whether it’s picking up designer outfits or bargaining for local handcrafted souvenirs, there’s never a dull moment in Phuket. There are lots of malls like Jungceylon and Central festival Phuket dotting the landscape, but for true local flavour check out the weekly market on Walking Street in the Old Town. For quirky buys, visit Chillva Market near Yaowarat Road full of bohemian spirit.

 
Top Attractions

 

Top Attractions

At the top of our checklist is The Big Buddha, an iconic 45m tall, white marble statue, which sits proudly atop Nakkerd Hills and overlooks the island below – an ideal location if you’re seeking panoramic vistas. If you have the kids in tow, take them to the aquarium and have a tour of the Marine Biology Research Centre, with exotic fish, crabs and sea turtles to show. The Wat Chalong temple, with its ornate pagodas, is another top attraction in Phuket for culture lovers. Don’t miss out on the Fantasea show on Kamala Beach, where you’ll see trapeze artists, performing elephants and get a huge buffet to dig into!

 
Nightlife

 

Nightlife

Located at the heart of Patong Beach, Bangla Road is centre of the resort’s buzzing nightlife, with neon-lit bars, superclubs and street performers. For a touch of class by the coast, Phuket’s first (and favourite) Catch Beach Club is a high-end establishment complete with elegant cocktails, shiny white interior and fire pits, or head to the live music bars in Patong such as Rock City, Hard Rock Café and Tao Bar.

 
Local Culture

 

 

Local Culture

If you do spend time away from the beach resorts, visit the atmospheric streets of Phuket Old Town, particularly Thalang Road, which has been lovingly restored and preserved. It’s full of local markets, colourful shops, quaint streets with abandoned mansions, and plenty of eateries where you can stop and enjoy some island delicacies and a refreshing drink as you watch the world go by. Don’t leave without getting a soothing back massage at a traditional spa, such as Mandara Spa at JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa, Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa, The Royal Phuket Yacht Club or The Spa at Mövenpick Resort & Spa.
