When flying to Phuket its good to know that more than 16 million passengers per year fly via Phuket airport, most flying in to enjoy a wide range of tourist services, natural beauty of the world famous Phuket beaches and fascinating tourist attractions.
You are likely thinking about the island’s fabulous beaches and parties on the infamous Bangla Road in Patong. You might think you have this Thai island all figured out, but as it turns out, the Pearl of the Andaman Sea has more than a few tricks hidden up its sleeve.
Getting off the beaten track in Phuket is going to involve hiring your own 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 the island.
Phuket Architecture and Cafes
It might seem inconceivable, but after spending a few days laying on the beach, 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 lovers. Stop by Bookhemian to browse the book selection and enjoy a cup of coffee. If you want to keep exploring Phuket off the beaten path.
Phuket Waterfalls and Rainforest Retreats
Like most people, you probably associate Phuket first and foremost with the island’s postcard ready beaches. If, however, you take the time to venture a bit inland, you’ll discover Phuket’s lush jungles and spellbinding waterfalls. A trek through the jungles followed by a natural waterfall shower is as close to tropical bliss you can get. One of the most beautiful places to visit is the Sirinat National Park located on the north coast.
Also find out about, and visit, the elephant sanctuaries, Phuket Aquarium, Botanic Garden, Tiger Kingdom, ‘Soi Dog’ or the ‘Gibbon rehabilitation project’ on the island.
One thing’s for sure when you arrive to Phuket – you won’t go hungry! Whether you’re looking to sample the spicy local cuisine or want to indulge in some fine dining, Phuket’s diverse food scene has more than got you covered. There are plenty of staggering gourmet options available, where the only thing rivalling the cuisine are the jaw-dropping views. Also try the street food or food stalls at the local markets. The fried chicken, served with sticky rice, or local sate is a winner for a quick snack.
As is true for the whole of Thailand, spirituality and the Buddhist faith are an integral part of life in Phuket. Visiting at least one temple 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.
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. 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.
