Take a Ferry
One of the greatest things about visiting Phuket is the fact that it’s an island, which means that the first thing that you should consider doing when traveling around Phuket is to take one of the many ferries available. If you are wondering where you should go when taking a ferry, there are many options to choose from, but Koh Phi Phi is one of the best.
Since taking ferries are so popular, many companies are offering a ferry to Koh Phi Phi, which means that you have quite the variety in terms of choice when it comes to the type of ferry that you will be taking.
See the Big Buddha
If you consider yourself an adventurous person, your next stop will have to be seeing the Big Buddha, and big it is. The construction for this marble statue started in 2002 and is 45 meters tall; a fun fact is that it was paid for entirely by donations.
One of the things that makes this such an adventure is the fact that you have to climb up quite a steep road to get there. However, once you’re at the top, the journey is 100% worth it. If you’re feeling thirsty after your long journey to the top, you can visit many of the bars in the surrounding area on the way down.
Visit Old Phuket Town
The next thing that you have to do when visiting Phuket is to visit old Phuket Town. There is so much to do in old Phuket town that it would be best to choose a day where you can spend at least half the day walking around the enchanting streets.
One of the greatest things about walking around all of Phuket town is how immersed you will feel with all of the little markets and stalls. If you are feeling hungry, you will find many bakeries, eateries, and cafes as you travel around. More than this, traveling around old Phuket Town will allow you to see some of the most amazing abandoned mansions.
If you have traveled to Phuket with your significant other, then you won’t be disappointed in the slightest. The most amazing experience that you can gift yourself would be having dinner on a balcony, overlooking the ocean, with a picture-perfect sunset.
Some of these restaurants have even been built on the beach with a balcony just above the water. This is not a suggestion to anyone, but if someone were so inclined, this would be the perfect place to get down on one knee.
Live it Up at Bangla Road
If candle-lit dinners aren’t your thing, and you have already traveled around quite a bit, seeing all of the sights, there’s only one thing left to do, which is to party it up on Bangla road. It should be said, however, that if you are planning on going to Bangla road, then you should be ready to bump shoulders with many other tourists; that’s how popular this road is.
At night, this City Street is extremely vibrant and very colorful, with many bars, shops, and restaurants to explore. If you want to take advantage of the evening, then it would be a good idea to do something called bar hopping.
See the Night Markets
Finally, the last suggestion for what to do when visiting Phuket would be to see the night markets. If you thought that Bangla road got busy at night, then you are in for quite a surprise. Not only is visiting the night markets amazing because of how beautifully lit up and colorful everything is, but you will also get to experience a side of Phuket not seen during daylight.
The benefit of visiting the night market would be the fact that you can pick up some amazing souvenirs for your loved ones back home. You can find anything from food to clothing, toys, and more, so you should be able to find something for everyone.
