Phuket Tourist Information Guide

Read Introduction

Let’s face it, Phuket is an adult destination. There might be no place in the world that is more fun for people over eighteen years old. You know what I’m talking about! But, what about for kids? Well, if your child is over 1.25 meters tall, he or she can do some go-karting in Phuket at one of the tracks. It isn’t for all kids, but run it by yours and see if they get excited, or have an anxious and scared look on their faces! Owned by a German national, Patong Go-Kart Speedway has been rated one of the best go-karting spots in the world and is located in Kathu, on the road between Patong Beach and Phuket Town. They have an assortment of go-karts to choose from: ranging from 140cc kid karts which peak around 40 kilometers per hour (kph), all the way up to 400cc racing go-karts for adults which can reach speeds of 110 kph! Go-karting in Phuket is fast and furious! In addition to go-karts, they have dune buggies and obstacles to run your buggy over, at an adjacent track with length of 600 meters. Despite the blazing speeds, this speedway has a lot of safety procedures in place, and they pride themselves on keeping everyone safe. If we had to choose one, we’d go here first. Another option in the same area, on Prabaramee Road, Kathu, is Phuket Kart. They got great reviews at TripAdvisor, with comments about the karts being faster and the track being somewhat longer. We can’t confirm that, as their entire website seems to be down at this time! Another reviewer said that staff is available to take kids on a practice run around the track to see if they think they are capable of handling the challenge of it, or not. It’s not so intuitive for kids who have experience riding 'Hello Kitty' bicycles, but nothing with four wheels! Anyway, go-karts are here in Phuket if you’re up for it! Riding can be somewhat dangerous, but some precautions are taken to keep you safe. The question is – do you have a NEED FOR SPEED?! * As you can see we have only one location on this page at the moment. We are sorry for the inconvenience and assure you that we will list more as soon as we have done our research on availability and quality. *
