Phang Nga Bay is without a doubt Phuket and Thailand most fascinating landscape. This is an ‘out-of-this-world’ scenery you must absolutely see with your own eyes if you crossed half the globe to come to here. The best way to explore it is in a silent kayak slowly gliding among giant cliffs. We have been in Phang Nga a dozen times and still we are still amazed. This is definitely one of the top 14 things to do in Phuket.

  1. Karon Viewpoint in South Phuket

Karon Viewpoint is a strange place: first time I visited it, it was called ‘Kata Viewpoint’ and one day, someone decided to rename it ‘Karon Viewpoint’! If you know a bit of Phuket geography, you’ll realize how odd this is as it’s actually far from Karon Beach, but just past Kata Beach. Probably has to do with the Karon district or someone had too much time on his hands. Anyway, it is a little confusing and travellers sometimes are trying to find it around Karon!

  1. Similan Islands Open from October to May 2018

The most impressive set of Island is without a doubt the Similan Island, but these are open at certain time of the year and a bit far. If you get a chance, you must absolutely go. If you are not confident, go to Phi Phi Island, but it’s kind of crowded. Easier and closer are Racha Island or really nearby Coral Island. The Similan Islands are a fabulous archipelago found in the Andaman Sea, about 100 km north from Phuket island.

  1. Bangla Road Nightlife:

Bangla Road really comes to life once the sun sets. The road is closed to vehicle traffic and becomes a 400 metre festival of neon lights, loud music and cheap beer. Jammed most nights of the year, it is quite a friendly and lively place to walk around as bars and clubs compete with each other for customers. If you’re looking for a fun night out in Phuket, Bangla Road should be your first (and, often, only) stop. Almost all of the bars are outdoors or open-fronted, so the music from each one blends into a mess of mixed beats.
