Phuket is not just about Patong's endless beach umbrellas and Soi Bangla's nightlife. Running out of things to see and do on this island is virtually impossible as there are beautiful beaches, breathtaking viewpoints, and both relaxing and extreme activities to fill your holidays with rest, recreation and adventure!

A winding road leads to the top of Nakkerd Hill, where the 45-metre concrete marble statue looks over the island. If not for the spiritual merit, come for the superb panoramic views. Drop by the golden temple of Wat Chalong while you're in the area to complete your pilgrimage.
Phang Nga Bay
Rising out of the Andaman Sea, the islands of Phang Nga Bay are a sight to behold. Whether paddling into lagoons within limestone cliffs on a kayak or taking a speedboat tour of James Bond Island and the village-on-stilts Koh Panyee, you’re assured of a memorable day cruising around these dreamy islands.
Old Phuket Town
Move into the interior for a walking tour of this once-neglected district. Restored and given a fresh coat of paint, Old Phuket is ready for its close-up. The colourful century-old shop houses hark back to the former tin mining town's ties to the British colonial sea port of Penang.
Ladyboy cabaret, traditional cultural performance or animal show—there's much to amuse and entertain in the theatres of Phuket after dark, from the family-friendly to the incredibly outlandish. The Phuket Fantasea is one of the more popular choices for dining entertainment.
The Art of Eight Limbs is certainly not your average boxing match. A muay thai fight is part ritual, part sport, and a complete must-see for all martial arts fans and for those seeking to observe a popular local pastime.
