About Phuket

When flying from Minneapolis to Phuket, Thailand its good to know that more than 16 million passengers per year fly via Phuket island airport, most flying in to enjoy a wide range of tourist services, natural beauty of the world famous Phuket beaches and fascinating tourist attractions.

If you live around Minneapolis, and have not been to Asia or the island of Phuket 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, 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 the island of Phuket homes and make Phuket their home. Either way. Make sure you make the most of it by getting off the beaten track on Phuket 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. Obviously there’s a bit of effort involved and, more than likely, a fair amount of perspiration. But the reward when you get there is often the best uncrowded viewpoints, villages and beaches on Phuket island, Thailand.

Architecture and Cafes

It might seem inconceivable, but after flying in from Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, and spending a few days laying on the beach on Phuket in Thailand, you might start craving for a change of scenery. A day trip into Old Phuket Town offers a nice break from the beach shacks on the coast. The Old Town offers an inspiring blend of Sino-Portuguese and Chinese influences and today, the walls are also a canvas for funky street art. 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. If your travelling around the island of Phuket, or you are stying on the North West coast then also check out the Bang Tao Beach Restaurant.

Phuket Spirituality

As is true for the whole of Thailand, spirituality and the Buddhist faith are an integral part of life in Phuket. While visiting from Minneapolis visit at least one temple. It will give you a deeper understanding of this island which is so often characterised only by its tourist hot spots. The most iconic religious landmark on the island is the Big Buddha, which commands a striking presence in Karon. Another popular place to visit is Wat Chalong, a large temple located in Chalong on Phuket, Thailand.

If you’re looking to discover Phuket, Thailand 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. The shrine used to be a real hidden gem, as the entrance was carefully hidden off in a tiny alley. Now you can easily find the temple thanks to its new striking entrance, but relatively few tourists still make their way here.
