Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

We’ve heard it said that there is more to do in the way of adventure in Phuket than in any other province. You probably won’t argue with that assessment once you arrive and begin to plan your Phuket bucket-list of adventurous things to do.

Everyone loves a mountain-chilled waterfall on a hot day in Thailand, and there are four of these popular Phuket adventures waiting for you to explore. Ao Yon, Bang Pae, Kathu, and Ton Sai waterfalls are all highly rated and stunning waterfalls on the island. Any one of these choices will be well worth the effort to visit during your vacation for a cool swim and photos with your waterproof camera!

But, there’s so much more! Just have a look at some of the adventure in Phuket that awaits you… Muay-Thai boxing events or training, sea-kayaking through water caves, wake parks, zip-lines, deep-sea fishing, jet skiing, kite surfing, bungee jumping, rock climbing, go karts, SCUBA diving, surfing, body-boarding, body-surfing, snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, and even a man-made wave pool you can surf on at Surf House Flow Rider!

If you’re looking for something for the whole family to enjoy when the water is calm during the months of December to April, the snorkeling in Phuket is hard to beat at Ya Nui and Ao Sane beaches!

And just when you think you’ve seen it all and done it all, you book a reservation for a night at the Simon Cabaret to wind down from an adventure-packed vacation in Phuket. The 'women' entertainers are adorned like goddesses, and the music is incredibly uplifting and powerful. All is going according to plans until you realize that these actresses are not women at all, and you’ve just experienced the ultimate mind-opening adventure in Phuket – the nightly Phuket lady-boy show just north of Patong Beach in Kathu!
