If you live around Fortaleza, and have not been to Asia or Phuket island before, you are likely thinking about Phuket island’s fabulous beaches, sunsets and parties on the infamous Bangla Road in Patong. You might think you have Phuket in Thailand all figured out, but as it turns out, the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ has more than a few tricks hidden up its sleeve. Most visitors don’t even see the real Phuket while others buy Phuket, Thailand houses and make Phuket their home. Either way. Make sure you make the most of it by getting off the beaten track on Phuket in Thailand is going to involve hiring your own personal driver or transportation (motorbike or jeep) for the day, or week, then driving, and hiking, over some off-road tracks.

But the reward when you get there is often the best uncrowded viewpoints, villages and beaches on Phuket.

What many people don’t realise is that the Old Town is not just a historic relic but a living and breathing community of creatives and coffee or wine lovers.

The most iconic religious landmark on the island is the Big Buddha, which commands a striking presence in Karon.

If you’re looking to discover Phuket off the beaten path you might also want to visit ‘The Shrine of the Serene Light’ in Phuket Town. This Chinese temple offers a colourful break from the Thai wats.

Now you can easily find the temple thanks to its new striking entrance, but relatively few tourists still make their way here.
